The Berliners belong to the teams that do not lie the Swabian. In seven compulsory game duels, the VFB was only able to win once (to the equal comparison): on April 24, 2017 in the 2nd league after a hard competitive 3: 1. The fact that the counterparty of the coming weekend could only win once, also at home, is a weak consolation. Especially with regard to the fact that two of the remaining five draws (2: 2 and 0: 0), Union in the 2019 relegation was sufficient to increase and carry the VFB into second-rate.
The Stuttgart wants to escape this season. Something countable from the capital could help the spreadsheet. But the team of Matarazzo should be warned. Notwithstanding your success against Borussia Mönchengladbach (3: 2). First after nine unsuccessful matchdays. And regardless of the change of Kruse, who left Berlin Gen Wolfsburg.
We will patience, persistence and tactical discipline.
“Union is still an extremely unpleasant team that is very tough to play and also has their strengths in the defensive,” explains the VFB head coach. “Berlin offers little spaces, plays with a certain man orientation, which covers a fiffer chain with a good timing, closes the rooms after ball loss very fast and very good. It’s hard to shoot a gate against you.”
And offensively, the club from the Berlin East without Kruse should not be underestimated. “They with Taiwo Awonjyi and Sheraldo Becker two extremely fast players with good physicality. To do so, with Genki Haraguchi and Grischa Prömel two strong eighth who are looking for deep,” explains Matarazzo, whose team did not manage this season, two To win in a row.
Next attempt Berlin. “For us it will be important to realize that it will be a very different game as a Gladbach. We will patience, persistence and tactical discipline. We have to watch out the ballast eighth and wingbacks that always appear in the penalty area, and with a secure Forming in place to turn off your deep balls on Awoniyi and Becker. ” George Moissidis
