A place in Borussia Dortmund history followed for Peter Stoger after Sunday’s 1-0 triumph at Borussia Monchengladbach.
Roman Burki excelled in goal for Dortmund after Marco Reus’ stunning effort to secure a win that took BVB back into second place in the Bundesliga.
It means Stoger has gone eight league games unbeaten since replacing Peter Bosz as Dortmund coach in December.
8 – Peter #Stöger is the 1st @BVB manager to remain undefeated in his first 8 #Bundesliga games (5 wins, 3 draws). Record. #BMGBVB

Among the defeated clubs, only one currently holds a top-half spot in the Bundesliga – ninth-place Hoffenheim – but Stoger’s efforts have returned the Westphalia giants to Champions League contention after Bosz’s reign ended in a miserable run of eight successive winless Bundesliga contests.
