stuttgart warms up for moscow

The favorite did not have to tremble for a minute. "We worked in a very concentrated manner and did not allow any scoring opportunities. But it will be a completely different game against moscow on wednesday," warned sports director fredi bobic. "What we lacked was the effective exploitation of opportunities. But we have fulfilled this obligation properly," said coach bruno labbadia in a relaxed tone. However, the coach did not want to disclose what conclusions the game in front of 7250 spectators in potsdam’s karlliebknecht stadium had given him for the formation against moscow.

Labbadia now wants to find out how his professionals coped with the stresses and strains of last week’s international match. "The places are still fiercely contested," the trainer said, and he was chafing at the competition after vedad ibisevic (30.), martin harnik (43., 54.) and substitute tunay torun (79.) and shinji okazaki (87.) at temperatures around 30 degrees the stuttgart goals had worried. "Now we also want to play against moscow to zero," demanded double goalkeeper harnik.

Only half an hour succeeded the landespokal winner from brandenburg – in its rows a chimney sweep, a policeman, a night club owner and an airline manager – the "to zero" to hold. But even after the ultimately clear 0:5, the "greens" from havelland were cheered by their fans on the lap of honor. With the 109 677 euros for the debut in the DFB cup, the club can now pay off all debts. At the hoffest in their hometown, the fans still love their favorites, the open-air party in falkensee only ended after midnight.

Coach frank "wuschi" rohde was no longer there by then. He quietly enjoyed the "success" of his troop. "I would also be proud of this team if they had lost 0:10," admitted the former HSV and hertha professional, who had celebrated nine championship titles with BFC dynamo in GDR times. "Our goal was not to concede more than five goals against. And that’s when bruno labbadia told his players to miss," joked rohde.
