Draw in Bochum

VfB have come through a busy week in the 2. Bundesliga undefeated. On Friday evening, the side in the shirts with the infamous red hoop played out a 1-1 (0-0) draw with VfL Bochum, on the night when Hannes Wolf made his debut as new VfB head-coach. And for a long period, it looked as though the Cannstatt Boys would steal away all three points. Christian Gentner & Co. were in control of proceedings until the closing phase, allowed very little through and took a deserved lead. A brief lack of concentration in the final quarter hour was quickly punished by the hosts to draw level. In the final stage of the tie, VfB found themselves under pressure, but defended stoutly to hold onto the point.


In comparison to the side that secured the three points against Braunschweig, the new VfB coach made one alteration to his starting eleven, with Kevin Großkreutz coming in to replace Berkay Özcan from the outset. In addition, Tobias Werner was back from an adductor problem to take a place in the VfB squad. For striker Simon Terodde, the evening was a return to his own haunting ground. Last season, the goal-getter hit the target 25 times for Bochum.

12th minute In the early phase, the tie is continually disrupted by breaks in the play. The first chance of the match falls to Simon Terodde on his old haunting ground. The striker goes tumbling in the penalty area following a challenge with Buchum’s central defender Pawel Dawidowicz, but still manages to get a shot away. VfL keeper Manuel Riemann gets a foot out to block the shot, whilst referee Daniel Siebert is unconvinced that the tackle from the Bochum defender was possibly a foul.
33rd minute The hosts create their first chance on goal through Tom Weilandt. Kevin Großkreutz gets a foot in and the Bochum man’s shot is thus no problem for Mitch Langerak to gather at ease.
57th minute VfB take the lead! Alexandru Maxim plays through to Christian Gentner, who fires home unstoppably from 16 meters out to make it 1-0 for VfB. It’s the captain’s third goal of the season.
33. Minute Die Gastgeber haben derweil ihre erste Torchance durch Tom Weilandt. Kevin Großkreutz stört den Bochumer aber noch entscheidend beim Abschluss, sodass Mitch Langerak das Spielgerät sicher abfangen kann.
79th minute Mitch Langerak rescues his side from an equaliser, turning a well-hit shot from Peniel Mlapa around the post. Shortly after though, the Australian keeper is left fishing the ball out of his net. Substitute Johannes Wurtz fires home from close range to make it 1-1.
90th minute + 3 Minute: It’s all over! VfB survive the final minutes of the game unscathed to take a well-earned point away from Bochum.

Hannes Wolf:

Considering how the game finished, we can consider ourselves satisfied with the point. We played well in the first half and had a couple of good chances on goal. We became a little tired towards the end, which is normal after three games in eight days. Following the equaliser, Mitch had to rescue us in the odd situation. We have taken seven from nine possible points in a very busy week of work – that’s really good! The next ten days will be spent on continuing to gel together, so that we are fresh for the home clash with Fürth.


Until the closing phase, all indications pointed towards a further victory for VfB. As in the previous two games in the past week, the Cannstatt Boys displayed a stable basic order and made effective use of their chances. For a long time, the lead never looked to be in any danger, but one situation turned the tie on its head. The hosts equalised, put coach Hannes Wolf’s side under some serious pressure and pushed for the win. In the end though, VfB held out to take a well-deserved point.
