FULL TIME: Augsburg 0 – 1 Stuttgart

VfB Stuttgart celebrated a lackluster win against FC Augsburg. This means that the Swabians jump to second place in the table, at least temporarily.

Against a largely unimaginative Augsburg team, the Swabians were the better team for almost the entire game. Star striker Serhou Guirassy scored the decisive goal with a technically impressive goal in the 48th minute.

With the win, Stuttgart now have 70 points and sends Bayern (69 points) into third place for the time being.

With a win or a draw (with a better goal difference) in the home game against VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday, the Munich team can overtake them again. Due to the defeat, FC Augsburg remains in ninth place in the table with 39 points.

Despite the confirmed qualification for the Champions League and the impressive win against Bayern, Stuttgart coach Sebastian Hoeneß once again urgently appealed to his players before the end of the season was approaching.

There was “nothing to give away,” emphasized the 41-year-old before the game: “We want to get the most out of it and maybe climb one more place.”

The team made every effort to implement their coach’s approach and took control of the game from the start.

However, due to the close staggering of Augsburg’s defense, VfB’s clear advantages in possession relatively rarely resulted in dangerous situations – Chris Führich (13th) came closest to taking the lead in the early stages.
