Borussia Mönchengladbach has lost precious points in the Bundesliga on Friday evening. The number four in the ranking lost 1-0 to SC Freiburg.
Nils Petersen was crowned match winner at the Schwarzwald Stadium. The attacker headed after close an hour from close touch from a free kick by Vincenzo Grifo.
Ten minutes later, Gladbach also faced ten men with a second yellow card for Alassane Pléa. Coach Marco Rose made four more changes in the remainder of the game, but the equalizer was no longer there for the visitors.
Due to the defeat, Gladbach can lose fourth place on Saturday to Bayer Leverkusen. The team of coach Peter Bosz must then at least take a point on a visit to league-leader Bayern Munich.
Freiburg, with Dutch goalkeeper Mark Flekken remaining on the bench, only recorded his first victory since the restart of the Bundesliga. The South German formation has only won two points in four games in recent weeks. Due to the victory over Gladbach, the team strengthens eighth place.
