Wolfsburg edge past Gladbach to move up to fifth

German champions VfL Wolfsburg survived a late rally by Borussia Monchengladbach to win 2-1 on Sunday and keep pace with the Bundesliga's early pace-setters.

• Saturday's Germany review

Wolfsburg defender Alexander Madlung headed the opening goal in first-half injury time and Christian Gentner made it 2-0 two minutes into second-half injury time. American midfielder Michael Bradley pulled a goal back for the visitors a minute later but the Wolves hung on.

The victory gives Armin Veh's side 16 points and leaves them fifth in the table, with Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg leading on 21 points following their 0-0 draw on Saturday.

"This was not a good game but it is important that we are in touch with the top spots," said Wolfsburg playmaker Zvjezdan Misimovic, who set up the first goal.

Borussia Dortmund jumped two places in the Bundesliga with a 2-0 victory in the Ruhr derby over Bochum.

Lucas Barrios and Neven Subotic scored the goals for Jurgen Klopp's side as they notched their third win this season and inflicted a first defeat on Bochum's caretaker coach Frank Heinemann.

Diego Klimowicz hit the post for Bochum but they were outplayed by their hosts and, as late flurry in the Bochum area almost brought a third for Dortmund, over 70,000 fans in the Westfalen Stadion were able to celebrate.
