Mönchengladbach floored by Bailly punch

Logan Bailly's misplaced punch cost VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach dear as they lost to fellow strugglers 1. FC Kaiserslautern, while Fenerbahçe SK won Friday's Istanbul derby.

There was no relief for rock-bottom VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach in Friday's lone Bundesliga fixture, with an own goal credited to goalkeeper Logan Bailly giving fellow strugglers 1. FC Kaiserslautern a 1-0 win.

The Belgian custodian went to fend away a cross just after the hour, but his attempt to punch the ball clear went awry, with the unfortunate 25-year-old merely to swatting it into his own net.

In the night's other big game, Fenerbahçe SK maintained their position at the top of the Turkish Super League with a 2-1 victory at struggling arch-rivals Galatasaray AŞ. Colin Kazım Richards put the home side in front inside 15 minutes, but in the final quarter-hour Semih Şentürk replied for Fenerbahçe, with Alex hitting the winner three minutes from time. Milan Baroš's dismissal soon after capped a grim evening for Galatasaray.
