Bochum 2 – Monchengladbach 2 (Bundesliga, October 17, 2008) Monchengladbach took the lead on the half-hour mark when Gohouri met Marin’s free-kick to nod home. The hosts responded 10 minutes after the interval when Dabrowski fired into the top corner. Kaloglu then gave Bochum the lead on 78 minutes when he powered home a header from Fuchs’ inch-perfect cross. Their advantage lasted just two minutes, though, as Kleine snatched an equaliser and a share of the spoils.
