Hoffenheim resume winning ways

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim hoisted themselves up to fourth in the Bundesliga thanks to a 3-2 win against nine-man VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach, with Eintracht Frankfurt also able to celebrate.

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim are up to fourth in the Bundesliga after putting together a 3-2 success against nine-man VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach, and Eintracht Frankfurt had a victory to celebrate too as they emerged 3-0 winners at 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Hoffenheim had not won in four league fixtures and they found themselves trailing on 12 minutes when Raúl Bobadilla fired Mönchengladbach ahead. That was as good as things got for the visitors, though, as they were pegged back by Demba Ba's equaliser just after the break and lost Juan Arango to a 62nd-minute red card, before an Anderson own goal left them trailing.

Sebastian Schachten's sending-off then reduced Mönchengladbach to nine players with nine minutes to go and Sejad Salihović made sure of the result for Hoffenheim from the penalty spot – although there was still time for Mohamadou Idrissou to bury a late consolation.

Fanis Gekas was the hero for Frankfurt as he took his haul this term to seven goals in eight games, scoring twice at Kaiserslautern to help his side climb to eighth. Alexander Meier registered the victors' third.
