VFL has actually currently finished the very first competitive video game of the brand-new period: Last Sunday, the protecting champ prevailed in the DFB Cup with 8-2 with the second division club Guterson. National player Alexandra Pop scored 4 times. We can not be in the flow yet as on completion of last season, claims Strewn, but we intend to reach this constitution once again asap.
Shortly before the beginning of the period, VFL also announced that the top game against Bayern Munich will be played in the Volkswagen Sector. The exact date has not yet been identified: Either will be played on October 22nd or 23. The discontinuation by the DFB will be revealed in the following few days.
In enhancement to Hugh, Marina Hearing (foot injury) is a second international for the opening game of the new period on Saturday (1 p.m., live! On twist) against the SGS Essen.
The expectancy for the beginning is still significant, as VFL coach Tommy Strewn put it. In enhancement, the national players were likewise also parked for World Mug credentials games.
The penultimate table lost 1: 2 (1-1) at the promoted VfL Bochum and has to hope after ten games in a row without a victory for a help of the old and new master FC Bayern Munich.
Should the record champion lose against VfB Stuttgart after his party trip to Ibiza on Sunday (5:30 p.m./DAZN), the renewed fall of the East Westphalia into the second class would no longer be prevented before the season finale.
“We hope that Bayern will give us a little bit of protection. If we still have the chance next week, everything is still possible,” said Bielefeld’s midfielder Patrick Wimmer at “DAZN”: “It was a combative performance again today. We are missing again today But the efficiency. That’s why we are back without points. “
Joakim Nilsson (35th) in the meantime equalized for the Arminia to 1-1. But an own goal of George Bello (89th) sealed the 16th defeat. The gap to the table-16. Stuttgart continues to be two points.
Even a victory in the last game against RB Leipzig would only be enough if VfB runs empty. Due to the Bielefeld defeat, it is also clear that Hertha BSC can no longer descend directly.
VfL Bochum says goodbye to eleven players – for the time being
Sebastian Polter (22nd) had put the already saved Bochum in the lead. A week after the 4: 3 triumph at Borussia Dortmund and the rushing celebration for relegation, VfL said goodbye to eleven players, whose contracts expire.
“I am sure that one or the other who gets a bouquet of flowers today will also play here next season,” said Arminia Bielefelds director Sebastian Schindzielorz at “DAZN”: “The talks are underway.”
There was nothing to be seen from a Bochum hangover after the party. The hosts started aggressively and committed. At first, Polter failed to Bielefeld’s keeper Stefan Ortega (2nd), then Gerrit Holtmann put a header from five meters just over the goal (3rd).
surprising balance after a free kick
The Arminia, which would like to have the planning security of VfL, held back. Coach Marco Kostmann had announced that it did not “go from the first minute all-in”, but “to increase the risk with increasing season”.
Bochum continued to have the clear chances: Ortega fended off two shots from Milos Pantovic with brilliant parades (13th/15th). Only behind the line did the goalkeeper Polter’s header caught the Pantovic flank.
The guests rarely appeared near the Bochum penalty area. A long-range shot from Masaya Okugawa in the arms of VfL keeper Manuel Riemann was the first approach (33.). The equalization is all the more surprising: after a free kick from Gonzalo Castro, Nilsson hit his head completely freely.
After the change of sides, the Bielefelders initially acted further. There was little to see from the absolute will to win. The hosts continued to have more of the game – and were rewarded shortly before the end.
The 22nd game day stood in the sign of the defeat of Bayern at VfL Bochum. With 4: 2, the Westphalia shot the Munich from the domestic Ruhrstadion. No wonder so that FCB coach Julian Nagelsmann was not in a good mood after the game. The votes to the Bundesliga games:
