VfB Stuttgart has messed up the opener in the second round of the Bundesliga. The team of coach Markus Weinzierl was subject to an overall extremely poor performance of the convincing FSV Mainz 05 2:3 (0:2) and began the new year by the way the old one ended – with a defeat. An own goal from Stuttgart to Santiago Ascacibar (22.), Jean-Philipp Mateta (28.) and Alexander Hack (72.) for a long time brought sovereign Mainz in the lead, was caught in a turbulent closing phase but still in danger. First of all, shortened Nicolas Gonzalez (83.) in the final phase, then Marc Oliver Kempf (scored 85.) the connection. Anastasios Donis (86.) missed immediately after his post hit the balance.

“We had the game completely in the handle. By a stupid mistake it is then exciting. The 3:1 falls out of nowhere and suddenly there was life in the stadium,“ said the Mainz goalkeeper Florian Müller, who had decided the fight for the place in the box in preparation against Robin Zentner.

The Stuttgart-based Concerns are not small, the VfB could slip on the weekend even on a direct relegation place. Mainz with a good 24 points on a rank in the midfield. After a brisk VfB-start and a first Chance to Hoffenheim on a loan-out Steven Zuber (2.) Mainz stabilized, the action was now balanced at least.

Mainz a clear forward

The Team of coach Sandro Schwarz has played a clear forward and less error-prone than the host. Boetius (24.) you should have after his opening goal, in the case of the Stuttgart Santiago helped Ascacibar, increase. The Mateta in the best scorers manner then repeated the against replace an indisposed VfB-Defensive. Hack hit to a corner. VfB coach Weinzierl had given to the two winter new additions to the trust, in addition to the Swiss national team making Alexander Esswein (Hertha BSC) in the initial formation. You should revive the hitherto weakest Offensive in the League.

About approaches, but also the Two first. After the two defeats at the end of the first half of the season the Swabians were under more pressure to act as the Rhine-Hesse, who had not won in front of the rear round kick-off four games (three draws), but a much better overall balance. The actions of the 05ers had in the course of the first passage is much more sovereign than that of the increasingly fahrigen Stuttgart. By the known troubled VfB-environment Weinzierl has the much harder Job when his Mainz counterpart Black. The gear in the second class would be for the club for two years after the Bundesliga’s return is a disaster, and, not least, this fact seemed to the residue, the legs of Mario Gomez and co. to paralyze.

The Fans acknowledged the idea to break with Whistling. Weinzierl was after the change and brought in for Dennis Aogo with Nicolas Gonzalez an additional offensive player. Significantly imaginative, the VfB-game has not been characterized, although the Mainz acted a little too much in management mode. Also, substitute Emiliano Insua (60.) failed with a free-kick 05-goalkeeper Florian Mueller. Other occasions, the VfB was initially in part by negligence, before the Stuttgart Fans had hoped in the end to a point.
