Borussia Mönchengladbach were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Borussia-Park against a coronavirus-depleted Stuttgart on Saturday.

In addition to long-term absentees Sasa Kalajdzic and Silas Katompa Mvumpa, Stuttgart were without Waldemar Anton, Orel Mangala, Roberto Massimo, Florian Müller and Erik Thommy due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the squad.

Nevertheless, it was the guests, who broke the deadlock against the run of play when Kostas Mavropanos unleashed a thunderbolt into the net in the 15th minute.

Gladbach, dominant in terms of possession and chances created, found the equaliser shortly before the break as Jonas Hofmann scored a wonderful goal from distance.

But despite putting pressure on in the second half, Adi Hütter's troops failed to find the goal they needed to win their third game in a row.

Following tonight's result, Gladbach sit 10th in the Bundesliga, two points ahead of Stuttgart, who are 12th.
