Stuttgart and Heidenheim offer spectacles 2024-03-31 17:54:48

DVfB Stuttgart missed out on their next win in the Bundesliga, but at least saved a point late on against 1. FC Heidenheim. National player Deniz Undav (90th + 8 minutes) secured Sebastian Hoeneß’s team a 3-3 (2-0) win against the promoted team on Sunday with his goal in stoppage time. Heidenheim had previously turned the game around in the final phase. Stuttgart has moved within three points of second-placed FC Bayern Munich and is four points ahead of fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund.

For the much better Stuttgart team, Serhou Guirassy took the lead with his 23rd goal of the season (41st), Angelo Stiller (53rd) increased. But an own goal by goalkeeper Alexander Nübel (62nd) and two goals within a few seconds from Tim Kleindienst (84th, 85th) turned the game in favor of the guests before Undav (90th + 8th) scored. Nikola Dovedan (90th + 6) had recently been shown a red card for a serious foul.

Guirassy’s goal doesn’t count

Coach Sebastian Hoeneß changed his successful team once; former Dortmund player Mahmoud Dahoud replaced Atakan Karazor and made his starting debut for VfB. In the anniversary game, which took place in front of more than 60,000 spectators for the first time after the renovation of the European Championship stadium was completed, Hoeneß also relied on his DFB quartet Maximilian Mittelstädt, Deniz Undav, Waldemar Anton and Chris Führich. Hoeneß had said in advance that he hoped that they would “take the momentum that they brought to the national team with us.”

Stuttgart celebrated early. After a counterattack via Führich and Undav, top striker Guirassy scored (8th), but the goal was withdrawn due to offside following intervention by the video referee. Stuttgart remained in control, and after Guirassy’s assist, Undav was denied by Kevin Müller (13′). The keeper also held strong with Guirassy’s header from a few meters (17′).

As a result, the guests got VfB under control a little better. Undav repeatedly dropped back as a hanging leader and acted as a ball distributor. Führich (39th) also failed in the direct duel due to Müller. VfB then took the lead and Guirassy completed another nice combination with his knee after an assist from Angelo Stiller to take the deserved lead.

Nübel initially thwarted Heidenheim’s best opportunity; in a duel against Jan-Niklas Beste, the goalkeeper was there with his foot shortly before half-time. Shortly after the break, the hosts supposedly made everything clear, Stiller stayed cool in front of Müller and this time finished it himself.

When VfB had everything under control, Nübel made a serious mistake. He dropped a header from Kleindienst and the ball rolled over the line to score. However, his team reacted strongly and continued to press offensively. Substitute Silas hit the post (74th), and Kleindienst scored ice-cold on the other side.
