Borussia Mönchengladbach has only been so-so defending their home turf this season.

Die Fohlen -- the Foals -- were only 3-1-2 in Gladbach coming into this match, but when a proud club with a strong heritage gets its shot at the international face of the Bundesliga, extra motivation kicks in.

It worked.

Despite a furious second half by FC Bayern, they couldn't overcome a two-goal deficit and were sent packing, 2-1.

Not that pride was the only motivation.
