And did you really back with a 3:0 (0:0)-victory after long effort a full game until the substitute Raffael (69.) and Florian Neuhaus (76.) as well as Stuttgart, Benjamin Pavard by own goal (84.) relatively late made it clear. Pavard limping to the scene from the square, but at a much earlier stage, with a Sprint in front of the 0:1, he had suffered a muscle tear in his right thigh and will now be a while at VfB. “He had the feeling that he can help the team.

signs of stress

In the first quarter of an hour, Betboo the Gladbach Fans held their breath, but this was due, first, to any Protest and, secondly, also just a metaphor. Five early goals against, namely, had admitted Gladbach this season in Augsburg after twelve, against Leverkusen after five, in Leipzig, after two minutes, in Freiburg after a Minute, and against Hannover, even after 22 seconds. However, the Stuttgart had not made with their nine goals in 13 Games before just a killer mentality to be suspicious and not rushed this time explicitly to the beginning of the concentration tried Gladbach accordingly, in trouble.

The VfB had in the first half hour, only a single (harmless) scene in the Gladbach penalty area and made, at best, this was the talk that Dennis Aogo injury had not caused out, Gonzalo Castro, however, was still coming off the bench ready, why Aogo was a Meter away from the side line to fall theatrically floor and Yellow saw by referee Deniz Aytekin.

First Raphael, Neuhaus – both of which were substitute: a good eye of Hecking

Then at last came the wort into the game. Only Gladbach’s Alassane Plea stole his teammate Michael Long and his team in offside position unnecessarily an otherwise valid goal (27.), then Stuttgart’s counter-striker Mario showed up Gomez’s promising in front of the goal, pushing Yann Sommer to the Ball but only in the arms (30.). The Nullzunull to break was an expression of the lack of precision on both sides.

Two of the past three games had finished, the Stuttgart without conceding a goal – a stability that was once long recognizable. But also because the company had this time, unusual at first erratic. In the 54. Minute awarded Christian Gentner following a Castro corner to the next Stuttgart a Chance, at all the Borussia threatened to lose, very briefly indeed, the control of the game.

Raphael came after an hour for the hapless Plea to the game. The Brazilians had in the 68. Minute from a tight angle the best Chance in the box, but not coarse, and therefore, attracted a debt-to full face. A Minute later, Raphael apologized in the Form of the Führungstors, he einköpfelte after a soulful edge by Florian Neuhaus undisturbed. Neuhaus was it even worth seeing for yourself. Because both players were in the game, was coach Dieter Hecking after the right hand to accuse.
