Big win for Bradley & Gladbach

[AMERICANS IN GERMANY] Defensive midfielder Michael Bradley returned to Borussia Moenchengladbach's starting lineup after coming off the bench last weekend and helped Gladbach win its first road game of the season. The 2-0 victory over Arminia Bielefeld moved Gladbach out of the relegation zone. Steve Cherundolo and Neven Subotic, however, suffered losses with their Bundesliga teams.

Marko Marin, 19, scored both of Gladbach's goals in its third win of the season, which moved it out of the relegation zone and into 14th place. Bradley was making his seventh appearance in 12 games and his sixth start. It was the second time he went the full 90 and he broke up several Bielefeld forays.

Hannover 96's Steve Cherundolo, playing his 192nd German First Division game, provided a fine cross that Jiri Stajner squandered from inside the goal area as Hannover fell 2-1 loss at FC Cologne -- Hannover failing again to notch back-to-back wins. Hannover is in 13th place, two points ahead of Gladbach.

Defender Neven Subotic failed to convert a half-chance in the fourth minute as Borussia Dortmund suffered its second loss of the season - 2-1 at Hamburg SV.
