The 1st leg of the Champions League qualifier went horribly wrong for Borussia M’gladbach. Playing at home in front of a crowd of 45,000+ against Dynamo Kiev, Borussia went down to a disgraceful 1-3 defeat. This means that CL Group stage is virtually unreachable now, and they’ll likely have to be content with the worthless Europaliga.
And things started out brightly, as Gladbach dominated and took the lead after 13 minutes on a goal by Finnish international Alexander Ring. They had some chances to riase the league, but then commited suicide with terrible defending and got kicked in the nuts.
