  7. Borussia Mönchengladbach fans did their best to hamper Inter’s preparation for their Champions League game this week. At 4am on Tuesday morning, the German fans gathered outside Inter’s hotel and lit up the sky with booming fireworks to wake up the Inter players. Why is there bad blood between the two clubs?

    1. In the late 1980s, Borussia Mönchengladbach set up deals with Jürgen Klinsmann, Lothar Matthäus and Andreas Brehme, but Inter swept in and signed the three German players

    2. The strange rivalry dates back to when José Mourinho was Inter manager. The two clubs met in the Champions League in the season Inter won the competition and, after a fiery game in Germany, Mourinho kept referring to the club as “Bayern Mönchengladbach” to wind up their fans

    3. Borussia Mönchengladbach fans feel aggrieved because their team beat Inter 7-1 in a European Cup game back in 1971 but the authorities ordered the game to be replayed after an Inter player claimed he was struck in the head by a can of Coke. Inter won the replay and went on to reach the European Cup final, leaving Mönchengladbach fans to seek their revenge

    4. Inter won the Cup Winners’ Cup final against Borussia Mönchengladbach in 1998 thanks to a goal that was clearly offside

    2. Bernd Leno

    3. Jordan Pickford

    4. Hugo Lloris


1:C - Van Nistelrooy scored all four for Manchester United when they beat Sparta Prague in 2004. Two players have scored four goals in a game against English clubs: Serge Gnabry for Bayern Munich against Tottenham and Lionel Messi for Barcelona against Arsenal., 2:A - Kahveci scored a hat-trick in a Champions League game but ended up on the losing team, following in the footsteps of Ronaldo against Manchester United in 2003 and Bale against Inter in 2010. All three games finished 4-3., 3:D - Only three people have won the award twice: Cooper, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill. Lewis Hamilton, who has won it once and finished runner-up four times, is likely to join that group this year., 4:B - Doyle won the 13:05, 13:40, 14:40, 15:15 and 16:25 races. Not a bad day., 5:B - Frappart has been refereeing in Ligue 1 since last year., 6:B - Schumacher’s debut at Spa was old-school. He stayed at a youth hostel and prepared for the race by cycling the track on a fold-up bicycle. When he qualified for the race in seventh, there was a rush to sign him. Jordan thought they had a deal in place but he jumped ship to Benetton and never drove for Jordan again., 7:C - As well as letting off fireworks this week, the Mönchengladbach fans left cans of Coca-Cola outside the hotel and unveiled a banner that read: “Things go better with Coke.”, 8:B - Manager Mikel Arteta and academy boss Per Mertesacker., 9:A - England lost to France in their first game of the year and will be hoping they do not lose to them again in their last game of the year., 10:A - Chelsea did not sign Mendy until October.
