Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Full Match Reports
VfB Stuttgart showcased an electrifying performance against Borussia Dortmund, capitalizing on their scintillating display to secure a 2-1 victory. Serhou Guirassy, back from injury, proved instrumental as he converted a penalty to seal the win, marking Stuttgart’s first triumph in five encounters against Die Schwarzgelben.
Both teams entered the match after experiencing disappointing turns in their league campaigns despite reaching the DFB Pokal last 16. Stuttgart had struggled in the absence of their prolific 14-goal striker Guirassy. However, his replacement, Deniz Undav, impressed the home supporters with his dynamic play. It was Undav who drew a foul from Gregor Kobel in the penalty area, allowing Chris Führich to step up for the spot-kick. Nonetheless, Kobel made a remarkable save, displaying his agility and denying Dortmund an early lead.
Stuttgart’s attacking prowess caused constant trouble for Dortmund’s defense. Jamie Leweling and Enzo Millot launched numerous attempts on goal, but Kobel, clad in purple, thwarted all their efforts with outstanding saves. However, Stuttgart finally found the breakthrough ten minutes before halftime. Julian Ryerson’s clever run down the wing led to a teasing cross, which Niclas Füllkrug calmly tapped in, marking Stuttgart’s first shot on target. Just before the break, Undav, assisted by Leweling, deservedly equalized with a well-taken goal.
Dortmund’s struggles continued in the second half, reminiscent of their heavy defeat against Bayern Munich in the Klassiker. Führich missed a chance to give Dortmund the lead, sending his shot wide after displaying impressive skill to deceive Niklas Süle. Marcel Sabitzer’s strike, on the other hand, found the woodwork after an impressive save from Alexander Nübel, but Dortmund’s attacks were generally ineffective. The introductions of Guirassy and Silas injected a renewed threat for Stuttgart, and it was Silas who was brought down by Kobel, resulting in another penalty.
Guirassy, entering the field as a substitute, confidently converted the spot-kick, securing his 15th goal of the season. Dortmund had little time to respond, and Stuttgart celebrated an important victory that keeps them in touch with league leaders Bayern Munich. On the other hand, Dortmund’s title ambitions have taken a significant hit with a second consecutive league defeat, leaving them in danger of falling out of the top four.
Angelo Stiller, for his exceptional performance in midfield, rightfully claims the Player of the Match award for VfB Stuttgart.
