Fenerbahçe SK registered a maiden victory on German soil by defeating VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach 4-2 in a gripping Group C contest.

After the hosts took an 18th-minute lead through Luuk de Jong, a sublime Cristian free-kick and equally eye-catching Raul Meireles drive gave the visitors a half-time advantage. Dirk Kuyt added a third 19 minutes from time, and although Igor De Camargo pulled one back just three minutes later to leave Aykut Kocaman's men nervous, Cristian's late strike clinched a first win in five trips to Germany.
