STUTTGART – Monchengladbach 0-3 (0-1)
Especially in the first game took place as we expected… pessimistic. Stuttgart tried to make the game, while guests were seated at the defensive midfield waiting the counterattacked situations for Hanke and Reus. A successful action of Arrango, the ball being rejected from the goal line by Hajnal, the hosts led to a heightened caution. And useless for a free kick executed by Reus, Hank learned quite freely in the midst of which, taking the ball into goal with his head, 0-1. The feeble “Swabians” gave even more daring guests who long took the game on their own, leading more than worth it to break.
After the break the hosts were forced to come to attack what they did but their offensive actions lacked foresight, often compromised by passing wrong and risky opportunity for guests to dangerous vulnerability of host defense is cumbersome and too advanced out. At one of the usual actions of guests, Herrmann to open in Reus and young depth on international trademark from the edge, 0-2, for more than another two minutes of action as training, De Camargo seals the forfait scoring, 0-3. Monchengladbach has evolved as a team leader, winning three important points in the fight for the title of champion who aspires to be more justified.
