The VfB Stuttgart has missed more Big Points in the relegation battle of the football league. Through the 1: 1 (1: 0) in the basement duel at Arminia Bielefeld, the team of coach Pellegrino Matarazzo remained unbeaten for the fourth time in a row, but only one point before the relegation rank 17. Frank Kramer Arminia succeeded after four bankruptcies at least a partial success.
Torjäger Sasa Kalajdzic by trademeter (25th) had taken the VFB in front of 26.011 spectators in the Schücoena, Florian Krüger (60th). Thus, Stuttgart has brought eight points from the past four games, while Arminia has been waiting for a victory since mid-February.
“After two years, the stadium was full again, a superior feeling. We have never put on and have come back. 16th place is a snapshot. What the point is worth the point, we will see at the end,” Stressed Goerscher Kruger. Teammollege Robin Hack supplemented at the “Sky” microphone: “In the whole, we are satisfied with the point. We have to continue working and give gas.”
“We need some alertness, good decisive backup,” Matarazzo had said in advance. In fact, the Arminia began highly motivated and snappy.
Stuttgart’s Defense Constantinos Mavropanos saved with a grasse in the highest need for the corner (6th), then his team was initially cut in one’s own half without it dangerous before the gate.
Bielefeld’s creative player Patrick Wimmer enabled the Swabia the lead: After a corner, the Austrian went to the ball – and he jumped on the outstretched arm. After a short check on the sideline referee Patrick Ittrich showed the penalty point, Kalajdzic turned safely.
With the leadership hit, safety returned to the VFB game. For two high-caliber, the Matarazzo team missed the preliminary decision: Chris Leaves aimed just next to the posts (38.), a minute later, Omar Marmoush ran against the far-reached Armin alone on the goal, but pushed the ball past the long corner.
Compensation falls out of nothing
Even after the break, the VFB was first closer to the second goal than the hosts compensation. A direct acceptance of Tiago Tomas stroked the lath (54th). Almost from that nothing fell 1: 1: Krüger stole in the back of the defense of it and pushed one of Janni Serra extended high flank effortlessly into the gate – the Arminia was allowed to re-cheer after four games without goal.
Tomas once again failed on the other side of Bielefeld-Keeper Stefan Ortega (66.) – and Stuttgart’s opportunity gate continued: Ortega first parished a shot of Pascal Stenzel, then headed a header of Mavropanos to the right post (78.).
