Gladbach suffer setback in Champions League quest
Borussia Moenchengladbach suffered another setback in their bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League as they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Freiburg on Friday.
Gladbach fell behind early against Freiburg as Italian midfielder Vincenzo Grifo gave the visitors a 10th-minute lead.
Former Nice striker Alassane Plea equalised just six minutes later with his 14th goal of the season, but Gladbach needed a fine save from goalkeeper Yann Sommer to deny Grifo to secure only a point.
Dortmund visit Hertha Berlin on Saturday, looking to retake top spot from their title rivals Bayern Munich after the Bavarians moved ahead on goal difference last weekend.
