The last minutes are running. The guests develop something like a tiny urge phase again. In terms of the end result alone, it will no longer be able to change anything that will change the world.
Last swap of the lot. Framberger replaces Pedersen.
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Raphael Framberger
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Mads Pedersen
Finnbogason has now caught the Augsburg team. The goal scorer of the 4: 1 apparently remains on the ground with a cramp. But it goes on for now.
Goal for FC Augsburg, 4-1 by Alfreð Finnbogason
The final decision! In the event of a counterattack, Zeqiri fits from the left flank to the half-right edge of the box to Finnbogason. The 32-year-old does not hesitate and closes flat and massive from 17 meters. Bredlow dives, ultimately has to watch the ball as it rushes into the net. The thing didn’t seem entirely untenable, however.
However, there is no real rearing up. The people of Wertach have the shop under control here. There is practically nothing offensively from VfB.
Yellow card for Hamadi Al Ghaddioui (VfB Stuttgart)
It will be really difficult for the Reds now. Catching up two goals against vicious Fuggerstadters is like an unpleasant undertaking in the final quarter of an hour.
Goal for FC Augsburg, 3-1 by Florian Niederlechner
Weinzierl changes the preliminary decision! Oxford nods a wide free kick from the left half field from the long to the near post. There Finnbogason has to run after the ball for a short time before he happily passes the ball through two people from Stuttgart to the six-yard corner. Niederlechner is right there and humorlessly slams the leather into the net.
Weinzierl also changes staff again. Dorsch and Niederlechner take over for Maier and Vargas.
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Niklas Dorsch
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Arne Maier
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Florian Niederlechner
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Ruben Vargas
The last two changes on the Stuttgart side. Faghir and Stenzel replace Klimowicz and Ito.
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Wahid Faghir
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Mateo Klimowicz
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Pascal Stenzel
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Hiroki Ito
Great chance Finnbogason! With a finely played counterattack, Hahn takes Zeqiri with him from the center on the left. His through pass finds the free-standing Finnbogason in the box on the right. The Icelander takes a little too long to receive the ball. Mola blocks his attempt to the corner, which fizzles out.
Weinzierl exchanges twice. Gruezo and Hahn take over for Caligiuri and Strobl.
Substitution at FC Augsburg: André Hahn
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Daniel Caligiuri
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Carlos Gruezo
Substitution at FC Augsburg: Tobias Strobl
Yellow card for Tanguy Coulibaly (VfB Stuttgart)
Gikiewicz again: This time it’s Mangala who tries his luck from a similar distance and an even more acute angle from the left. Now the goalkeeper is holding the thing without creating a corner.
In the box on the left, Klimowicz turns around Oxford and pulls off from an acute angle in the direction of the short corner. Gikiewicz parries to the corner, which does not pose any danger.
Goal for FC Augsburg, 2-1 by Jeffrey Gouweleeuw
A crazy goal leads to 2-1 for Augsburg! As a result of a corner, the ball on the fiver bounces again from several heads in the air. Bredlow comes out, but is there much later than Gouweleeuw and has to watch the Dutchman behead the round past him. Mangala tries everything on the line to prevent the hit – firstly, he catches the ball behind it, secondly, it then finally flies into the net.
In the second round, the Weinzierl-Elf starts with a lot of speed. Again and again she breaks through on the wings into the last third. Now Maier kicks a free kick almost from the left corner flag in the middle, but cannot find a teammate. In pursuit, Strobl finds his master with his long-range shot in Bredlow.
It continues with a personnel change. Förster replaces Didavi on the part of the guests.
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Philipp Förster
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Daniel Didavi
Kick-off second half
Half-time in Augsburg, between FCA and VfB Stuttgart the score is 1: 1. In the process, Führich’s fine left-footed shot gave the Reds a lightning start, who subsequently had bad luck on several occasions. Führich had to go out with an ankle injury. After half an hour, the increasingly stronger Fuggerstadters deservedly scored 1: 1. A little later, Kempf had to be replaced with thigh problems. Overall, we see a lively game in which the home side gradually gain the upper hand. However, they have not yet been able to reward themselves with the opening goal. It remains exciting. See you soon!
Official injury time (minutes): 2
There are still a few minutes left before the break. Since the first injury-related substitution, the Puppenkistenstädter have been the better team. The 1: 1 is therefore more than deserved.
And dicey again! Maier’s free kick kicked directly on the housing poses problems for Bredlow due to the turmoil in front of him. Ultimately, however, the goalkeeper will certainly take it.
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Clinton Mola
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Marc Oliver Kempf
Yellow card for Daniel Didavi (VfB Stuttgart)
In the back right, Didavi comes too late with his tackle from behind. Yellow.
It gets even worse for the corona and injury-ridden state capital: Kempf has to leave the field with thigh problems. Very, very bitter.
Dangerous: After a corner that was actually too wide, Anton saves the ball just before the opposite goal line. Didavi takes his low cross to the first post directly – but the veteran gets stuck.
Yellow card for Daniel Caligiuri (FC Augsburg)
In the duel with Kempf, Caligiuri has his elbow at face level. But he sees the yellow box.
Goal for FC Augsburg, 1-1 by Reece Oxford
… and then the balance falls! After Maier’s corner, Oxford climbs much higher than Anton and nods to the left. Bredlow is powerless.
Bredlow has to go again: Finnbogason hurries to the right after a good through pass and pulls off from a slightly acute angle. Stuttgart’s keeper fends off the rather harmless attempt to corner …
After a free kick from the left half-field, Oxford dived near the six-yard box with a head under the ball. Bredlow extends his foot with presence of mind and rescues strong.
Vargas forgives! The 23-year-old chases the ball from half left from 17 meters just past the right bend.
There is the change that has become necessary. Due to an injury, Matarazzo Coulibaly swaps for Führich.
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Tanguy Coulibaly
Substitution at VfB Stuttgart: Chris Führich
Jeffrey Gouweleeuw (FC Augsburg) is shown a yellow card
Gouweleeuw clears Didavi violently. Then he complains heavily to Ittrich. In sum, this is yellow.
Fuehrich lies on the ground one more time. This time he has to be treated on the ankle. It won’t go on with him.
… Pedersen’s crossings find no buyers either in the first or in the second attempt. Instead, the counterattack rolls, in the course of which Oxford Führich steps on the heel at full speed. There is no yellow, but there is a free kick. It doesn’t bring anything.
Zeqiri suddenly has a lot of space on the half right in the opponent’s sixteen-meter space. His attempt to take a corner is just blocked …
Caligiuri simply takes heart from 24 meters. His long-range shot rushes over it for miles.
This is of course a thankless start for the hosts. With the already battered self-confidence, this early residue is poison. Let’s see how the reaction is.
Goal for VfB Stuttgart, 0: 1 by Chris Führich
VfB takes the lead! Führich receives the ball at the height of the right corner of the penalty area. With a quick start he pulls inwards and ultimately from a central 17 meters. The thing hits the bottom right next to the post. It was way too easy.
Klimowicz is unlocked great on the half left. Although he lets out an Augsburg resident when he takes office, the second is over.
… Didavi only throws the marble into the wall.
And it gets really edgy: Oxford goes into a duel with Al Ghaddioui from behind and brings him down. Referee Ittrich decides to continue playing, seconds later Strobl fouls 18 meters centrally in front of his own box …
At least in terms of results, this is also needed at VfB. Like today’s opponent, he had to give way to another Bundesliga club in the cup. At home he lost to 1. FC Köln (0-2) – the third competitive game in a row without his own three-pointers. In any case, the Stuttgart only won twice this season: at the beginning of the season against SpVgg Greuther Fürth (5: 1) and on the seventh match day against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (3: 1). 13th place is still three places better than Augsburg, but does not live up to its own claims.
Markus Weinzierl can’t be happy right now. The FCA coach and his squad have been without a win for five competitive games – most recently three times against teams that are supposedly on an equal footing. Not only did she not get beyond a draw at home against Arminia Bielefeld (1: 1) – after that, after an indisputable performance, especially in the first half, a hefty defeat followed at 1. FSV Mainz 05 (1: 4). During the week she was eliminated from the DFB Cup at VfL Bochum (4-5 on penalties). There can hardly be a better and more necessary time for a turnaround.
The guests are also making two changes with a view to Wednesday. Anton and Al Ghaddioui start for Mavropanos and Coulibaly.
Let’s look at the line-ups of both teams. Compared to the cup game during the week, the home side swap twice. Pedersen and Finnbogason replace Iago and Hahn.
Hello and welcome to the tenth Bundesliga matchday! In Schwabenderby, VfB Stuttgart will be playing at FC Augsburg today. Kick-off is at 3:30 p.m.
