Gladbach wins 4-2, reclaims Bundesliga lead from Bayern
BERLIN (AP) — Borussia Mönchengladbach returned to the top of the Bundesliga with a 4-2 home win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.
Breel Embolo whipped in a low cross to give Marcus Thuram a tap-in for Gladbach’s opener in the 28th, and Oscar Wendt let fly for the second in first-half injury time, when Thuram was initially stopped by Danny da Costa.
Frankfurt improved after the break and da Costa scored for the visitors in the 59th after Daichi Kamada pulled the ball back.
Zakaria calmed home fans’ nerves with Gladbach’s fourth goal in the 85th, set up by Lars Stindl despite Frankfurt defenders around him.
Wolfsburg stayed unbeaten but missed the chance to go top earlier Sunday in a 0-0 draw with visiting Augsburg.
Wolfsburg substitute João Victor thought he’d scored a late winner for the home side, but the goal was ruled out after a VAR intervention for offside.
Bayern had defeated promoted Union Berlin 2-1 to move top on Saturday.
