Gladbach crisis continues with Bundesliga draw at Bielefeld

Alassane Plea of Borussia Moenchengladbach celebrate with team mates after he score his teams first goal during the Bundesliga match between Arminia Bielefeld and Borussia Moenchengladbach at Schueco-Arena on February 05, 2022 in Bielefeld, Germany.

Borussia Mönchengladbach’s dismal spell continued Saturday with a 1-1 draw at Arminia Bielefeld, while high-flying Union Berlin and Freiburg both lost in the Bundesliga.

Gladbach at least ended its three-game losing run across all competitions, but coach Adi Hütter remains under pressure with the team just two points above the relegation zone.

Bielefeld stretched its unbeaten streak to six games.

Janni Serra opened the scoring in the 19th when he eluded three Gladbach defenders and let fly inside the left corner.

The home team was by far the better side until Alassane Plea equalized with a diving header to Jonas Hofmann’s lay off in the 38th.

Bielefeld also pushed hard in the second half, with visiting goalkeeper Yann Sommer rescuing Gladbach at least twice.

American defender George Bello made his Bundesliga debut following his transfer from Major League Soccer’s Atlanta, entering for Bielefeld in the 71st minute.

But Gladbach might have grabbed a late winner, with Hofmann in particular failing to make more of some good counterattacking opportunities.

Marcus Thuram fired the last chance wide for Gladbach, which is also looking for a new sporting director after Max Eberl’s decision to quit last week due to a buildup of stress and exhaustion after nearly 14 years in the job.
