VfL Wolfsburg’s Maximilian Arnold fired in a stoppage time winner as they beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1 on Sunday.

The result sent the visitors dropping into second place in the Bundesliga after leading the title race for the last two months.

The Wolves, in eighth place, showed no respect for Gladbach, playing their best season since last winning the title in 1977, and hit

the post after four minutes with Joao Victor.

Two minutes after that Xaver Schlager fired them into the lead.

Gladbach levelled with a Breel Embolo volley two minutes later and could have scored again early in the second half with Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea.

Wolfsburg hit the woodwork again in their share of scoring chances before Arnold drilled in the winner in stoppage time.

Gladbach dropped to second in the standings on 31 points, with RB Leipzig on 33 after Saturday’s 3-0 win at Fortuna Duesseldorf.

Champions Bayern Munich crushed Werder Bremen 6-1 to climb to fourth on 27, two points behind Borussia Dortmund.
