Three hard-earned points

Du oder ich? - Verwirrung nach dem 2:0
Du oder ich? - Verwirrung nach dem 2:0

A fourth win in the fifth home game for VfB: On Friday evening, the side in the shirts with the infamous red hoop notched up a 2-1 win over TSV 1860 München. As in the recent home clash with SpVgg Greuther Fürth, the Cannstatt Boys got off to an ideal start, taking an early lead and then promptly adding a second, but the visitors reduced the deficit before the break. In the second period, Christian Gentner & Co. proved physically stronger than their opponents and controlled the match. The chances were there, but VfB were unable to relieve the tension by adding to their advantage. In the closing phase, rapturous applause rang around the stadium, as Daniel Ginczek was introduced as a substitute after several months out through injury.


Compared to the side that began in the disappointing away defeat to SG Dynamo Dresden, coach Hannes Wolf made four changes to his starting eleven. The injured Hajime Hosogai was replaced in midfield by Berkay Özcan, whilst Simon Terodde, Takuma Asano and Toni Sunjic were in from the outset, at the expense of Alexandru Maxim, Florian Klein and Benjamin Pavard, who reverted to the bench. The substitute’s bench also included Daniel Ginczek, who was back in the squad for the first time since suffering a cruciate ligament tear in January.

6th minute As in the home game against SpVgg Greuther Fürth, VfB again make the ideal start, with Berkay Özcan putting the Cannstatt Boys in front. The Turkish U21 international plays a one-two with Carlos Mané, cuts inside his marker and fires home to make it 1-0.
9th minute VfB maintain the attacking momentum. Winning possession in midfield, Kevin Großkreutz sprays the ball left to Takuma Asano. The fans are off their seats, but the Japanese international’s shot only finds the side-netting.
12th minute The visitors from Munich have their first sight of goal from a free-kick. Maximilian Wittek fires on Mitch Langerak’s goal from distance, but the keeper reacts quickly and gets a fist up to turn the ball over for a corner – which 1860 cannot make count…
18th minute contrary to the hosts from the next corner! Christian Gentner rises to meet a corner delivered by Berkay Özcan. TSV keeper Jan Zimmermann can only parry the ball, which falls kindly for Timo Baumgartl to slam home from point-blank range. 2-0 for VfB!
36th minute
Coach Hannes Wolf’s eleven continue to control the tie, but set pieces from 1860 remain a threat and the hosts duly reduce the deficit with a directly converted free-kick from Levent Aycicek – 1-2.
82nd minute For all of their best efforts, VfB cannot reward themselves with a third goal, but the fans have reason to cheer. After many months out through injury, Daniel Ginczek finally makes his comeback, being introduced as a substitute.
90th minute + 3 In added-time, the ball lands in the VfB net, but the goal is not allowed to stand, with the refereeing team awarding an off-side. Relief for VfB just minutes later as the final whistle is blown.

Daniel Ginczek:

Although it was only for ten minutes, I was really pumped out. You can train as much as you want, but when you are on the pitch in a match, it’s a different issue. I am really happy to have been involved again. It’s quite a story. To be honest, I didn’t expect to be introduced with the score so tight. That was confirmation of the belief that the trainer-team have in me.


VfB fulfilled their expectations on the night. In front of a crowd of 55,000 at the Mercedes-Benz, the Cannstatt Boys looked decidedly better than they did in Dresden. During the first-half, the hosts lorded the play and duly took the lead. During the course of the first 45 minutes, the match often took on a hectic element, with countless fouls interrupting the flow of play and stagnating Vibe’s approach play. In the second-half, the Wasenelf rose to the physical battle and controlled proceedings. In spite of creating a number of chances though, Wolf’s men were unable to extend their advantage and add a third goal. In the end though, the win and the three points for the hosts were thoroughly deserved.
