VfB Stuttgart – Union Berlin 0: 1: VfB still without a win

Union Berlin has extended the table lead with a hard-fought victory at VfB Stuttgart. The air is getting thinner and thinner for VfB coach Pellegrino Matarazzo.

Urs Fischer took a deep breath and gave his players a high five with relief, while the fans who had traveled with him sang euphorically: “Only the FCU will be German champions”. After a lot of hard work, Union Berlin has extended the lead in the Bundesliga and exacerbated the crisis of VfB Stuttgart, which was still without a win.

Coach Fischer’s surprise team won 1-0 (0-0) against the Swabians at the end of the ninth matchday and will go into the top duel with Borussia Dortmund next Sunday with a two-point lead over pursuers SC Freiburg.

“It was a lucky win for us. We wanted to play from a good compactness and then somehow score the goal. We managed that,” said Union’s Rani Khedira DAZN: “We didn’t see a nice game, you could tell we were tired.”

Paul Jaeckel (76th) scored for the guests, who struggled against VfB. The Swabians showed an appealing performance and held against it throughout the season. Nevertheless, the frustrated fans said goodbye to their team with loud whistles. With just five points, VfB are still second to last in the table, and for coach Pellegrino Matarazzo the air is getting thinner ahead of the basement duel with bottom of the league VfL Bochum next Saturday. Striker Serhou Guirassy, ​​who saw yellow-red in the 83rd minute, will be missing there.
