VfB Stuttgart with victory over the Hannover 96
Hannover 96 has to deal so slowly with the plans for the Second League. In the relegation crash at VfB Stuttgart, the team of Thomas Doll was downright humble.
“Oh, how nice is that,” sang the blessed Stuttgart fans . And indeed, one had not seen such a long time in the stadium of VfB . 5: 1 (3: 0) humbled the Swabians in relegation duel Hannover 96. Mario Gomez (4th) met early to the lead, then the Turkish winter newcomer Ozan Kabak (16 and 45) was followed by the head. Substitute substitute Jonathas let the 96 fans just dream of a catch-up when he scored in the 68th minute to make it 1: 3. However, a brace from Steven Zuber (78th and 81st) ensured clear conditions.
The goals for Stuttgart were downright logical. Gomez could have put the hosts in the lead after just 44 seconds. He had already played out Hanover goalkeeper Michael Esser, but from an acute angle only hit the outside net. Shortly thereafter, he made it better after Zuspiel Zuber. It was the attacker’s first goal in nearly three months.
In the second round, the Stuttgart switched back a gear and left the Hanoverians the game. An attempt by Genki Haraguchi (51.) was the first scoring of the 96er ever in the game. Finally, when ” Joker ” Jonathas punished the passivity of the Swabians, they began to tremble for a short time, until the outstanding Zuber double pack eliminated last doubts.
Stuttgart has now again connection to the saving shore, two counters are to FCAugsburg. This coming Saturday (09.03.2019) at 15.30 clock is the VfB ahead of the tough away game at Borussia Dortmund. Hannover will not have it easier the day after, playing at 6 pm at home against Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
