B Mönchengladbach banked all three points against the RB Leipzig in a 3-0 victory on Saturday, at the Borussia Park. Gladbach arrived with the intention of improving their league position following a disappointing 0-0 draw with SC Freiburg in their previous game whilst Leipzig were looking to extend their winning run after a 3-0 victory against Borussia Dortmund. Gladbach are now in 6th place, with 12 points from 7 matches, while Leipzig sit in 12th, with 8 points from 7.

Gladbach started the first half well, when Jonas Hofmann opened the rout in the 10th minute. The Colts then netted once more and increased their advantage thanks to a second effort from Jonas Hofmann in the 35th minute to secure a 2-0 win.

Gladbach started the second half with renewed vigour, when Ramy Bensebaini found the net, at 53 minutes. The match ended with a 3-0 home victory.

Substitutions for Gladbach included Hannes Wolf, Patrick Herrmann, Nathan N`Goumou Minpole, Stefan Lainer and Tony Jantschke for Lars Stindl, Hannes Wolf, Marcus Thuram, Jonas Hofmann and Julian Weigl, respectively. Leipzig brought on Timo Werner, Xaver Schlager, Yussuf Poulsen and Hugo Novoa, to replace Emil Forsberg, Amadou Haidara, Andre Silva and Benjamin Henrichs.

There were bookings for Julian Weigl and Lars Stindl from Gladbach, and Kevin Kampl and Benjamin Henrichs, for Leipzig.
