Borussia Monchengladbach threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.

Denis Zakaria and Thorgan Hazard handed Monchengladbach a comfortable 2-0 half-time lead, only for the hosts to slip to a draw after the turnaround.

Monchengladbach had seemed on course for a second-straight win after their 1-0 victory at Hannover that ended a run of four defeats, but Bremen had other ideas.

Switzerland star Zakaria struck first, before Hazard bagged his eighth league goal of the season, as the hosts took early control.

The match turned on its head after the break though, with Thomas Delaney and Aron Johannsson on target.

Denmark midfielder Delaney struck on 51 minutes to alter the game’s complexion and stress the previously unflustered hosts.

American forward Johannsson then struck to seal a point for the visitors and floor Monchengladbach.
