VfB Stuttgart – Hertha BSC – Both teams finished in the lower part of the table for the first part of the season and it is certainly a big disappointment for Herth because this team also played the European league. Stuttgart has just returned to the elite and was expected to have problems, however, two points are more than the exit zone and will now strive to keep in those positions. It should be said that Hertha nevertheless gained the sensational seven points more so that they are closer to European positions than the zone of fall. In the first part of the season, Hertha wins Stuttgart with 2: 0.
Stuttgart is certainly one of the teams that have been enjoying the winter break because they are just finishing the first part and playing the worst. The negative series began in mid-November, after a brilliant victory over Borussia Dortmund. Instead of raising their self-confidence, the “Swabs” have fallen in shape and have made six unbeaten matches, out of which five defeats, ending with the Cup of Mainz, so that they are now only a championship.
In the championships they lost four games in a row without reaching the goal, so they probably decided to hire an experienced golfer Maria Gomez who arrived from Wolfsburg and will immediately take the place in the starting lineup. Before the break they played with Bayern and they did not have the luck because they lost 1: 0, and Akolo missed the penalty in the referee’s remuneration. Because of injury there is still no Mane and Zimmerman.
Contrary to the host of this spectacle, Hertha just played at the end of the first part of the season, which confirms the two linked victories before the break. They have played four tie-ups without defeat, but they play in the European league with Ostersund on the domestic pitch and are not a real achievement, while playing at Augsburg and not so bad. They beat Hannover in the field with 3: 1 and then the best win for the end, she is away at Leipzig with 3: 2. It is a great triumph when it is known that at the beginning of the match they took off and then left with the player less on the ground due to the exclusion of Torunariga.
Numerous inferiores managed to score another two goals and at the start of the second half they led to 3: 0. By the end, they got two goals, but they kept the win, so they went into a good mood for a winter break. They did not bring reinforcements, and Stocker left, who has not played in the past. Compared to the last round, we should find Weiser and Skeldbred instead of the penalized Torunarighe and the injured Esswein.
