The 85th meeting between south German rivals VfB Stuttgart and Bayern ended goalless, an acceptable result to both sides. “We didn’t play badly at all, but we didn’t do enough with the third and fourth passes of our attacking moves,“ reflected Louis van Gaal. “A draw with Bayern in our current situation rates as a success of sorts,” said former FCB man and VfB skipper Thomas Hitzlsperger.
Reaction to Stuttgart v Bayern:
Louis van Gaal: “I think the draw was the right result. We had more of the possession, but we didn’t create many chances. I’m still satisfied. It was much more difficult for us than in Frankfurt, because Stuttgart were much better organised and threw themselves at everything. We didn’t play badly at all, but we didn’t do enough with the third and fourth passes of our attacking moves. If that’s not working, we won’t score goals.“
