BERLIN -- Borussia Moenchengladbach defeated Eintracht Braunschweig 4-1 Friday to extend the promoted side's poor return to the Bundesliga.
Oscar Wendt opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, and Max Kruse crossed for Raffael to make it 2-0 with a header in the 31st, when a rout looked likely with the visitors completely out of their depth.
They improved after the break and Mirko Boland deservedly pulled one back in the 58th, only for Kruse to score a penalty in the 72nd and Raffael to seal the result with his second goal four minutes later.
Braunschweig coach Torsten Lieberknecht was sent to the stands with three minutes remaining.
His side has just one point from six games on its return to the top flight after 28 years.
