Florian Neuhaus Beautifully Chips Mainz Goalkeeper From 50 Yards Out
Florian Neuhaus beautifully chipped Mainz goalkeeper Robin Zentner in Borussia Monchengladbach's 3-1 victory this afternoon.
The German midfielder collected the ball following Zentner's clearance and launched the ball towards the goal as the keeper ran back to his box.
Despite Zentner getting back in net, Neuhaus' chip drifted past him into the back of the net.

Favourite part of this Florian Neuhaus goal - the keeper thinking he had it without realising he was two yards too far to the left pic.twitter.com/joJ34puxEg- FootballJOE (@FootballJOE) January 25, 2020
I don't think I could give that goal enough likes :green_heart:- Robert Black (@RJBVCC44) January 25, 2020
However, some believed that the goalkeeper made a massive error in jumping too early and missing the shot.
am I the only one that thinks the keeper should do better? jumps to early? still a decent goal- David Green (@DGreen1987) January 25, 2020
The German club also took to Twitter and posted a video of the midfielder pulling of the same stunt in training.
Monchengladbach have enjoyed a great season under Rose and find themselves in the Bundesliga title race.
They're currently third in the table and two points behind leaders RB Leipzig.
Do you think Monchengladbach could win the Bundesliga this season?
