Draw in Berlin

On matchday 13, VfB Stuttgart played out their second draw of the campaign. On Sunday afternoon, the clash between Hannes Wolf’s men and 1. FC Union Berlin ended 1-1. The side in the shirts with the infamous red hoop took and early lead in the first-half and controlled much of the play. Following an avoidable equaliser after the break, the home side put Timo Baumgartl & Co. under ever-increasing pressure. Both sides had further chances on goal, but neither the hosts nor the Cannstatt Boys could make their openings count. As a result, the Wasenelf shared the spoils with Union.


There were two changes made to the VfB starting eleven from the 3-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld prior to the international break. Benjamin Pavard and Florian Klein replaced Kevin Großkreutz (fifth booking - suspension) and Takuma Asano (bench).

3rd minute VfB get off to the perfect start against the chasers and take the lead with the first attempt of the match. Christian Gentner takes possession in midfield and suddenly it all happens very quickly: Florian Klein and Carlos Mané combine, spraying the ball back into the path of the captain, who directly picks out Simon Terodde. The goal-getter, and former Union man, shifts the ball onto his left boot, jinks past his marker and fires home from eleven meters out to make it 1-0. It’s the 28 year olds eighth goal of the season and the fourth VfB goal in succession for the number 9.
45th minute Having taken the lead, VfB put in a well-organised and stable performance throughout the first 45 minutes. After the 1-0 though, Hannes Wolf’s men were unable to increase their lead further.
48th minute Similarly to in the first-half, the Cannstatt Boys get the second-period going on the attack. Once again it’s Simon Terodde, who causes a problem as he gets to a cross from Emiliano Insua. The striker’s header is turned over the bar by Union keeper Jakob Busk. Just seconds later, the 28 year old front-man drags a shot wide from a promising position.
60th minute Union are back on level-terms. An incomplete attempt to clear is quickly punished by Berlin’s Steven Skrzybski, who turns the ball home from the edge of the box to make it 1-1.
70th minute Coach Hannes Wolf ‘s eleven have been under serious pressure since the equaliser, but are holding their own thus far.
76th minute A double-chance for the hosts, but Mitch Langerak and Christian Gentner combine to avert the danger. Chances on goal are a rarity in the closing phase.

Hannes Wolf:

Considering the final 20 or 30 minutes, we can certainly live with the point. Over the sixty minutes prior to that, we played quite well. Having taken the early lead, we wanted to make it 2-0 quickly at the beginning of the second-half, but that didn’t work out for us. After the equaliser, Union threw everything they had at us and made a number of chances.


On the whole, the draw was a fair result. VfB got off to the better start and looked well-organised over long periods, although without really causing much of a threat on the Union goal after the 1-0. Chances on goal for the hosts from Berlin were a rarity until the hour-mark. Then 1. FC Union landed an equaliser and continually put ever-increasing pressure on Christian Gentner & Co. VfB rose to the test though and came through with a well-earned point.
