Copenhagen. Mainz and the team’s Danish head coach, Bo Svensson, won 1-1 against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Friday.

The home team Mainz had the most and the biggest chances in the showdown, but still had to struggle hard for the point, which came in house via a nice scoring by the Swiss Silvan Widmer.

Mainz is after the fifth match in the Bundesliga with 17 points after 11 matches. Gladbach is ninth with his 15 points.

The Danish striker Marcus Ingvartsen got the last few minutes of the match plus extra time for Mainz.

Throughout the match, Mainz was the most active team, but Gladbach had an extremely strong goalkeeper in Swiss Yann Sommer, who saved his team several times.

Conversely, Mainz goalkeeper Robin Zentner was anything but sharp after 38 minutes when he let the ball roll out to midfielder Florian Neuhaus after a long shot.

It gave the away team an easy goal and a 1-0 lead, which it held thanks to several strong Sommer actions until the 75th minute.

After a short tussle with the defender, Silvan Widmer finally tucked the ball home.

Mainz pressed for the victory in the final phase, but had to settle for a points divider.
