Moenchengladbach to fourth in Bundesliga

Dec 15, 2017 - 10:01 PM Raffael scored twice for Borussia Moenchengladbach helping them move to fourth in the Bundesliga with a 3-1 win over Hamburger SV.

Hamburg, who remain in the relegation zone, were pushing for the winner when Raffael capitalised on an intercepted pass from Kyriakos Papadopoulos to restore 'Gladbach's lead in the 74th minute.

He then made sure of the win with his second, from close range, five minutes later.

'Gladbach made a brilliant start and duly went ahead through Thorgan Hazard inside the first 10 minutes.

But the visitors fought back and would have equalised but for a goal-line clearance from Lars Stindl.

Hazard should have scored again in the second half when he was denied by a fine save from Christian Mathenia, and he was to rue the loss minutes later when Andre Hahn scored against his former club. Aaron Hunt played a brilliant pass for Hahn to run onto and equalise.
