German goals: Dortmund edge out Gladbach

Borussia Dortmund 2 – Monchengladbach 1 (Bundesliga, December 12, 2008) Mohamed Zidan struck a volley in the 35th minute that looped over keeper Heimeroth for the opener. Three minutes later the hosts were reduced to 10-men when Tamas Hajnal was sent off for his second yellow card of the match, but although a man down, Dortmund went 2-up as Blaszczykowski’s pass was converted by Nuri Sahin. The visitors got back into the match with 10 minutes remaining when Johannes van den Bergh capitalised on a poor clearance and fired in a sweet left-foot volley on the angle.
