The 21.780 viewers saw few football highlights, but two dedicated teams. Stuttgart did not hide either, but the landlords, who repeatedly tried to stage the powerful Daniel Ginczek, had better chances.

Mario Gomez against his former club pale
Shortly afterwards Arnold placed a free shot on Guilavogui’s head The Frenchman only had to nod to the deserved leadership meeting.
Afterwards Wolfsburg took something out of the tempo and let Stuttgart come. But the Swabians found it difficult to create compelling opportunities out of the available spaces –attacker Mario Gomez was largely neutralized by his former colleagues.
Instead, after a counter, Admir Mehmedi had the 2:0 on his foot, but the Swiss shot clear across the gate. Weghorst was much more determined at his sixth season meeting shortly thereafter, Stuttgart’s Santiago Ascacibar and Marc-Oliver Kempf looked quite bad in the scene.
The VfB did not want to give up even with the increasing duration of the game, brought the former Wolfsburg Daniel Didavi for more momentum –however, he was always unsuccessful. And the wolves skillfully managed their leadership.
