Club captain Lars Stindl was the catalyst for Borussia Mönchengladbach's remarkable, come-from-behind 3-2 win at Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Matchday 18.
Without a win away from home all season and 2-0 down, it looked bleak for Gladbach and new coach Dieter Hecking at the BayArena at half-time. The Foals came out of the dressing rooms a different side, with Stindl scoring two fine goals to level proceedings at 2-2 after 58 minutes. Raffael found the net 13 minutes later to conclude a superb, come-from-behind win, but it was Stindl who was the travelling fans' darling come full-time.
