MIRACLE UNION!

Sensational scenes at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei where Union have beaten Gladbach with a goal seven minutes into injury time. Was there even time to kick off after Doekhi's goal? Union won't care. Urs Fischer's men, who pushed and pushed right to the death, finally got the goal that sends them back to the top of the Bundesliga.

UNION WIN IT AT THE DEATH

What just happened!? Union have only gone and won the game with the last touch of the ball. A quick corner was worked to Leweling whose cross into the mixer was met by a superb Doekhi downward header that beat Sippel all ends up! Cue pandemonium inside the stadium.

TRIMMEL DENIED

Trimmel had the Stadion An der Alten Försterei going nuts with a header at the back stick that bounced up into the net. There was an offside in there, however, and following a VAR check, that one is chalked off.

BEHRENS THERE AGAIN

Union corner. It reaches Behrens who's falling back slightly but still manages to get a shot away under pressure from Hermann. The ball zips over the crossbar. Big finish this from Union, whose fans are roaring the Irons all the way to the finish

UNION EQUALISE !

Union are level ! Leite's flighted cross to the far post is watched all the way by Behrens. Sippel makes a decision to come for this but he's not going to make it. Instead, the keeper's flying fist catches Behrens straight in the mush less than a second after the Union man had headed into the net.

UNION PRESSURE

Scenes inside the Gladbach box. It all starts when Becker controls inside the area but his chested pass goes to nobody in particular. Trimmel eventually cuts the ball back for Ryerson, whose shot is cleared off the line by Friedrich. There was a flag up on the far side during that move.

UNION OMEN

Another worrying omen for Union is that they are behind in a Bundesliga game for only the third time this season. When The Irons previously fell behind against Bochum and Frankfurt, they went on to lose both games.

NO JOY FOR FRONT TWO

Neither Becker nor Jordan had a shot on target in the first half for Union. The hosts' top scorers and assist providers will be keen to have much more of an effect in this second half.

PLEA OFF TARGET

Scally over hits a criss to the far post but the ball eventually works its way back to Plea, who shoots high and wide.

Union get the second half underway. Can the hosts get back into this or will Gladbach hold onto their lead?

HALF TIME

Gladbach take a narrow lead into the break thanks to Nico Elvedi's first half header from Lars Stindl's corner. A disallowed goal aside, Union have yet to create a top, top chance, although the hosts have controlled for large parts. Interesting second half to come.

UNION WORRIES

Schäfer blooters one high over the crossbar from distance. Urs Fischer looks on in pensive mood.

SCHÄFER STRETCHING

Becker's rolling pass to the far post has Schäfer sliding in to meet it. Unfortunately for the Union man, Bensebaini is sliding in with him and the latter gets enough on the ball to snuff out the danger.

ALMOST THURAM

It's nearly two! Thuram lifts the ball over the advancing Rönnow with one of the smoothest pieces of skill you'll see all season. The French forward's subsequent header from the left lands on top of the goal netting.

GOAL GLADBACH

And wouldn't you know it! Gladbach win a corner which Stindl takes. The ball drops down into a crowd of players and Elevdi ducks to head in from close range. The visitors lead.

UNION GOAL RULED OUT

Gladbach head clear but the ball bounces straight to Khedira, who controls and wellies a right-footed effort at goal. The ball cannons off Becker and flies into the net. Union celebrate but VAR want a look at this. A review adjudges Becker to have handled. No goal.

Ryerson's cross from the right comes all the way over to Haberer who pulls the trigger, only to see Scally make a fantastic block. From the subsequent corner, Haberer fires harmlessly at Sippel.

BECKER YEARNS FOR REVIVAL

Union fans will be keen to see their striker Sheraldo Becker get back into top form here. The forward scored six goals in his first seven Bundesliga games this season but hasn't found the net in his last four in Germany's top flight.

THURAM IN FINE FORM

Gladbach's Marcus Thuram is understandably in good spirts (see tweet below). The French striker is third on the Bundesliga's top goalscorer list having registered eight goals this term. He has also found the net more often against Union (three times) than against any other side. The hosts (and their mascot) had better beware.

UNION TEAM NEWS

Union show two changes to the side that started Thursday's victory against Braga. Left-sided player Tymoteusz Puchacz makes his Bundesliga debut for the hosts while Andras Schäfer is also in from the get-go. Morten Thorsby and Chrsitopher Trimmel are benched.

INJURED FOALS SEEK LIFT

Like Union, Gladbach also suffered defeat in their last Bundesliga outing, the Foals going down at home to Eintracht Frankfurt. The visitors today have several injury concerns as they try to get back to winning ways. "We had a super run of games but we’re currently in a difficult phase with all our injuries," Borussia boss Daniel Farke said in the build up to today's encounter. "It’s time to grit our teeth and fight for every point."

UNION'S "TOUGH TASK"

Urs Fischer's men can reclaim top spot from Bayern Munich today, but the hosts will need a win in order to do so and that won't be straightforward, according to home coach Urs Fischer. "Despite some injuries, Gladbach have good quality in their line-up week after week," the Union tactician explained. "It will be an extremely tough task."

ALL EYES ON UNION

Union Berlin are out to defend top spot on Matchday 12. Can mid-table Borussia Mönchengladbach stop them? They'll have to do something they haven't managed so far this Bundesliga season first - win on the road.
