Gladbach took a lead just shy of the half hour mark through Raffael who took advantage of some slack Mainz defending.

And the Brazilian looked to have sealed the points early in the second half scoring his and Glabach’s second goal through a swift attacking move on 67 minutes.

But some inexplicable goalkeeping allowed Johannes Geis to dispatch a long range free-kick in the 73rd minute.

And Shinji Okazaki rescued the points for his side with a header just four minutes later.

Gladbach miss the chance to close on second and will now have to look over their shoulder at the chasing pack for Champions League places.
