Mönchengladbach thrash Wolfsburg

 Mönchengladbach, April 21: Borussia Mönchengladbach remained in the hunt for European slots with a 3-0 win against Wolfsburg, who sit uncomfortably close to the Bundesliga drop zone. Stung by last week’s 5-1 drubbing at the hands of league leaders FC Bayern Munich, the hosts played like a team that had something to prove and Wolfsburg were never really in the match here on Friday night.

Mönchengladbach remain 8th in the Bundesliga table with 43 points, just three behind sixth-place Hoffenheim, who have a game in hand. With 30 points, Wolfsburg are 14th, but could fall to 16th depending on how Mainz and Freiburg do in their weekend matches. IANS
