Mainz 1-0 Borussia Monchengladbach – Match Highlights

Andre Schurrle struck an 87th-minute winner as Mainz consolidated fifth place in the Bundesliga table with a tight 1-0 victory over rock-bottom Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday night.

The visitors had hoped to move off the foot of the table on the back of their 5-1 thrashing of Koln last Sunday, but missed their chance when Mike Hanke was sent off on 53 for two bookable offences.

Without a win in their last four games, Mainz started well and Schurrle came close to opening the scoring in the 14th minute when his right-footed shot in the box was well saved by Marc ter Stegen.

The visitors hit back through Marco Reus, who flashed a 21st-minute effort inches wide of the target, before Mainz had a strong penalty shout turned down after Schurrle was held back in the box by Bonfim Dante.
