Mönchengladbach get the better of Freiburg

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach kept pace with their near rivals as they picked up three points against SC Freiburg, while Hannover 96 ended their seven-game winless run.

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach made sure they did not cede any ground at the business end of the Bundesliga as they matched their near rivals, picking up three points against SC Freiburg.

After all the other members of the top five won on Saturday, the fourth-placed Fohlen kept pace with a 1-0 victory, but were made to work hard against Christian Streich's men.

After some wayward finishing in the first period, the hosts went ahead on 62 minutes when Raffael fired in from close range having been teed up by Oscar Wendt. The success keeps Mönchengladbach three points behind third-placed Borussia Dortmund and four ahead of FC Schalke 04.

Earlier in the day, Hannover 96 had struck either side of half-time against Eintracht Frankfurt to end a seven-game winless run. Mame Diouf headed in Edgar Prib's left-wing cross on 25 minutes to give the hosts the lead, and their task got easier shortly after the restart when Martin Lanig received a second yellow card.

With 23 minutes remaining, Szabolcs Huszti wrapped things up with a sweet free-kick.
