November 27, 2010: Dortmund 4-1 Monchengladbach
When these teams last met, Marco Reus stunned the hosts with a wonderful opener on 33 minutes, a thunderous strike from distance after a long solo run. Dortmund fought back and equalised on the stroke of half-time thanks to a fine header from defender Neven Subotic. After the interval, BVB blitzed Gladbach into submission: Shinji Kagawa (52'), Kevin Grosskreutz (76'), and Lucas Barrios (88') all struck before the death to seal three points for the league leaders.
