Video - Highlights from Borussia Monchengladbach vs FC Cologne

Much loved Borussia Monchengladbach recorded a historic victory against midtable Cologne in a highscoring affair. The game finished 5-1 with Borussia completely dominating from start to end. A quick succession of goals saw Borussia with a 3-0 lead before half time. Juan Arango bagged the opener after a powerful shot, this was quickly followed by a clinical finish by Reus who used his pace to get behind the defence. But the pick of the bunch was certainly Reus' second which saw him volley the ball in from over 20m away, to leave Rensing helpless!

Early on in the second half it looked as if Cologne were going to replicate their form from last week and complete an astounding comeback. Things were looking good early as Novakovic tapped in to further add to his tally at the top of the German top scorers list. However a penalty in the mid second half and a debut goal for Nordtveit saw Borussia run away with a 5-1 lead and record a derby victory.
