20 August 2011 00:01

Borussia Monchengladbach moved top of the Bundesliga on Friday with a 4-1 victory at home against Wolfsburg.

The visitors led early in the match at Borussia-Park, courtesy of a 12th-minute goal from Makoto Hasebe.

The Japan international completed a well-worked team move, receiving the ball from Christian Trasch on the edge of the area and firing home for 1-0.

The lead lasted just three minutes before Raul Bobadilla disposed Simon Kjaer to set up Marco Reus, who beat Diego Benaglio in the Wolfsburg goal.

Monchengladbach went in front on 32 minutes, with Belgian defender Filip Daems converting from the penalty spot after Michael Schulze brought down Reus.

And on the stroke of half-time, Bobadilla headed home from a corner to fire the hosts 3-1 ahead.

Juan Arango came close to adding to the tally, hitting the post from a volley shortly after the restart.

With 23 minutes remaining, Reus did make it four, finding the bottom corner from Arango's cross to complete his brace and seal a comprehensive win.

The victory sees Monchengladbach move into first place, one point ahead of Mainz and Hannover, who are in action on Sunday.

Wolfsburg are 11th, with one win and two defeats from three matches played.
