Bielefeld, Germany – Japan midfielder Wataru Endo helped Stuttgart secure a 2-1 win away to Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday, netting his third goal of the season in the second half of the Bundesliga clash. With the hosts having taken the lead before halftime, Endo equalized with a curling effort from outside the box in the 72nd minute at Monchengladbach’s Borussia-Park. Sasa Kalajdzic struck the winner five minutes later for Stuttgart, who climbed to ninth in the standings with the victory.
There are question marks over Robert Lewandowski's fitness as newly-crowned Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich head to Freiburg on Saturday, when he could equal or beat Gerd Mueller's 49-year-old record of 40 goals in a Bundesliga season.
