At the end of a tough 90 minutes, a header from Paul Jaeckel (76′) resulted in a 1-0 (0-0) victory for Union Berlin over VfB Stuttgart. The “Iron” greeted with 20 points after the 9th Bundesliga matchday from first place. With just five points, Stuttgart is the only team in the league without a win to remain penultimate.

Rönnow with a strong reflex against Zagadou

For their own audience, however, the Swabians did not play as a relegation candidate on Sunday (9 October 2022), especially in the first half. Time and again, VfB quickly looked for a way out without losing sight of protection against the attacking Unioner. Stuttgart, however, had the best chance in the initial phase after a set piece.

After a free kick from outside, Dan-Axel Zagadou headed in from close range, but Union goalkeeper Frederik Rönnow prevented the deficit with a strong reflex (14′). The guests didn’t do much for the game until half-time and Stuttgart went into half-time with more chances after a sharp Ito free kick (25′) and a header from Guirassy (34′).

Union with a lot of control

In the second round, both teams played much more cautious. Berlin controlled the game through long periods of possession, but took no decisive advantage. In Stuttgart, the strength and thus the momentum of the first 45 minutes gradually decreased.

Finally, one scene was enough for the ripped-off guests to win. Jaeckel took a corner kick from Nico Gießelmann perfectly in time and headed the ball over the inside post into the goal. Although Stuttgart defended themselves, Konstantinos Mavropanos (79th) hit the post shortly after falling behind and wanted to equalize, but it was no longer enough for a point.

Instead, Serhou Guirassy took the yellow-red card with two fouls within five minutes (83rd) and VfB ended the game in a minority.
