Borussia Dortmund 1-0 Borussia Mönchengladbach

A 50-yard own goal lifted Borussia Dortmund off the bottom of the Bundesliga and inflicted a first league defeat of the season on Borussia Monchengladbach.

Christoph Kramer's back pass from just inside his own half lobbed goalkeeper Yann Sommer to end Dortmund's five-match league losing streak.

The win, Dortmund's third in the league all season, moved last season's runners-up into 15th.

Monchengladbach remain third.

Kramer inexplicably lofted the ball back towards his goalkeeper with five players between him and the goal, with 32 minutes remaining.

And, with Sommer on the edge of his penalty area, the ball sailed over his head and into the back of the net for a bizarre winner.
