Gladbach's cabbage-patch pitch shocks Borussia Dortmund

Borussia-Park's pitch has seen better days.

Borussia Dortmund got more than they bargained for when they made the trip to take on Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday -- a pitch that was more suited to a cabbage patch or a farmer's field than football.

The surface at Gladbach's Borussia-Park home almost looked stitched together like some kind of home-made quilt. 

Mario Gotze told Bild: "The first 20 minutes it was a bit like ice skating. That pitch was nearly as good as my backyard."

Dortmund's Twitter account put out a picture...

Roman Burki 10/10 as Dortmund complete narrow win at Gladbach

Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Stoger explains what it means to finally be able to see Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Andre Schurrle link up with one another.

MONCHENGLADBACH, Germany -- Borussia Dortmund added their third Bundesliga win in a row, narrowly beating Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 with a magical strike provided by Marco Reus after 31 minutes.

In the second half, the pass completion rate of the visitors dropped from 75 percent to 67, which perfectly captures their grind of an afternoon. The Foals amassed a superior expected goal count of 2.3 to Dortmund's 0.42; it's fair to say the Black and Yellows were somewhat lucky to escape the bumpy...

Bayern Munich's Jupp Heynckes eyeing another run to Champions League final

Catch up on all the stats and storylines you need to know about ahead of Bayern Munich's round of 16 clash against Besiktas.
Jupp Heynckes candidly explains why he was absent from the bench for Bayern Munich's 2-1 win over Schalke last Saturday.
Jupp Heynckes is confident Manuel Neuer will be back and ready to play for Germany at the 2018 World Cup.

Carlo Ancelotti was hailed as "Mr. Champions League" when he succeeded Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich in 2016. However, his successor, Jupp Heynckes, can boast an equally proud record in the competition and has his sights set on extending an incredible run of reaching the Champions League final at every attempt when Bayern face Turkish champions Besiktas in the round of 16.

Here's a look at three of the magisterial 72-year-old's biggest games in the competition.

Michy Batshuayi, Dortmund proving to be a perfect match even if just temporarily

Borussia Dortmund's Peter Stoger admits the club is lucky to have Michy Batshuayi after the Belgian scored his fifth goal in three matches since moving to Germany.
Michy Batshuayi scored two goals in the second half to pull Borussia Dortmund from a 1-2 loss to a 3-2 win against Atalanta at home. Here are the highlights of this encounter. Watch the full match highlights played between Borussia Dortmund vs Atalanta
Michy Batshuayi now has five goals in his last three matches as Dortmund's winless streak in Europe ends at eight matches following their 3-2 win over Atalanta.

DORTMUND, Germany -- Maybe it is wise to start this article with a disclaimer: Yes, it has only been three games that Michy Batshuayi has played for Dortmund, and yes, hot streaks are not infinite.

However, after just 270 minutes playing for the Westphalians, the argument can be made that he is currently a better fit for the German outfit than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who permanently transferred to Arsenal on the same day.

Within three games, the 24-year-old Belgian had a hand in all of Dortmund's...

Arjen Robben, Sandro Wagner key late Bayern comeback at Wolfsburg

Sandro Wagner's goal vs. Wolfsburg was his second since returning to Bayern.
Sandro Wagner's goal was his second since returning to Bayern Munich from Hoffenheim.

Sandro Wagner's header and substitute Robert Lewandowski's penalty sealed Bayern Munich's last-minute comeback 2-1 win against Wolfsburg, who had the temerity to take the lead through Daniel Didavi in the eighth minute. The Bundesliga champions could even afford the luxury of Arjen Robben's missed penalty nine minutes after the break.


A sixth consecutive Bundesliga title is a matter of weeks away, maintaining a massive 18-point advantage over "nearest challengers" Leipzig with 12 games...

Man City's Kevin De Bruyne the one that got away for Bayern Munich

While admitting he must win titles to usurp the likes of Messi and Ronaldo, Pep Guardiola has 'no doubt' that Kevin De Bruyne is a contender for the Ballon d'Or.

The list of top players Bayern Munich have plucked away from Bundesliga rivals grows every year: Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, Mats Hummels, Manuel Neuer in recent seasons, soon to be followed by Leon Goretzka in the summer.

But Bayern may rue missing out on one particular star: Kevin De Bruyne, Germany's Player of the Year in 2014-15, and now the driving force behind Manchester City's assault on four fronts.

"I would give the shirt off my back for him," current Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes...
