Germany round-up: Relief for Mönchengladbach

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach moved out of the relegation zone by beating VfL Wolfsburg.

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach moved out of the 1. Bundesliga relegation zone with a 2-0 home win over VfL Wolfsburg.

Leverkusen drop
Mönchengladbach, who had lost their previous four games without scoring a goal, climbed two places up to 15th in the 18-team table. Their victory means struggling Bayer 04 Leverkusen drop one spot to 16th.

Schnoor own goal
Mönchengladbach had gone 467 minutes without a league goal when Wolfsburg defender Stefan Schnoor put them in the lead with an own goal on 33 minutes, deflecting an effort from Igor Demo into his own net.

Aidoo makes sure
Striker Lawrence Aidoo made sure of the victory with the hosts' second goal in the 71st minute. The match was postponed from 1 February due to bad weather. Wolfsburg remain in eleventh place.
