Five Long Minutes

Things went a little sour for Kasey Keller and his teammates today as they lost their third straight game away from home. Borussia Monchengladbach have now played six games, three at home and three away, only winning their matches played within the friendly confines of Borussia-Park.

The result leaves them one point off the pace, for 24 hours at least. Schalke 04 play tomorrow, with a win taking them four clear of Gladbach and three up on Nurnberg, Werder Bremen, and Bayern Munich. Hertha Berlin can also jump into the leaders group with a win tomorrow against VfB Stuttgart. The surprise of the day goes to bottom club VfL Wolfsburg for beating the Munich giants 1-0 at home. I guess it's a little hard coming back to play one of the worst at home after such an emotional win in Milan.

After the international break, the best games on the schedule look to be on October 14th with Bayern Munich hosting Hertha Berlin and Wolfsburg traveling to play Gladbach. Let's see if Keller and his mates can continue their home form. It seems to be the only place they feel comfortable playing.
