Borussia Mönchengladbach reclaimed the Bundesliga's top spot with a 4-2 win over Freiburg on Sunday which leaves 'Die Fohlen' one point clear of second-placed RB Leipzig.

Speaking after the final whistle, Stefan Lainer said Gladbach are now looking forward to their clash with regning Champions Bayern München on Saturday.

"That was a lot of fun, despite the freezing cold. We can be very happy. The performance was just what we were after. We were aggressive from the start and controlled the game. We were desperate to win and I think that you could sense that," Lainer said, as quoted by the club.

"All in all, it was a deserved win. It’s nice to get the three points and stay top of the table. It’s still only something to savour for now though. We welcome FC Bayern here next week and we’re all looking forward to it," he added.

Bayern, who fell to a 1-2 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, sit fourth in the table, four points behind Gladbach.
