Drama! Gladbach collects last-minute compensation
Borussia Mönchengladbach has experienced a real drama in the soccer opera San Siro: At her Champions League comeback after four years, the foal eleven first advanced 2-1 lead against Inter Milan, but had to settle for 2-2 (0-0) in the 90th minute with a goal by Romelu Lukaku.
Ramy Bensebaini per Foulelfmeter (63rd) and Jonas Hofmann (84th) led the long harmless but ice-cold Gladbachers in front of 1000 spectators. Lukaku (49th) had first brought Inter forward.
After all: In the third attempt, Borussia started the first time with a points win in the top class and despite the coming opponents Real Madrid and Schachtar Donetsk is allowed to dream quietly of the knockout phase.
“We can live with the point in two or three hours, but it doesn’t feel so good right now,” said international Matthias Ginter at the streaming service “DAZN”. “We have shown that we can keep up even if we have not done everything perfectly.” His team had “not allowed so much throughout the game”.
