The 43-year-old Walter tried from the outside again and again gesticulating influence. Some things did not go as hoped in the offensive with the unfamiliar Walter style, which stands for courageous playful solutions. Striker newcomer Hamadi Al Ghaddiooui was the first to score a narrow shot from around 18 meters in the strong Ron-Robert Zieler in the 96 goal. Shortly thereafter, the 2014 world champion was powerless: A cross from Borna Sosa pushed Gomez against his favorite opponent by direct acceptance into the net. The 34-year-old had already scored 96 in the first league against as many as against any other club (12).

Marcin Kaminski limped off the field

Zieler had only returned from the VfB in the summer to the Lower Saxony and was greeted with whistles. As one of three new he was in the 96-starting eleven. VfB coach Walter had trusted five players who did not belong to the VfB team last season. Returnee Marcin Kaminski limped off before the break, for him came in Awoudja another entrance. And the 21-year-old debutant ensured that the hosts could not calmly go into the break despite the direct free-kick of Didavi. With his first ball contact hit the defender, beset by 96-striker Hendrik Weydandt, into the own goal.

After security warnings for the spectators, the heavy rain delayed the re-start for a short time. On the drenched turf, Didfi playmaker Didavi, midfielder Santiago Ascacibar and Gomez had a great chance to beat Stuttgart 3-1. 96-coach Slomka brought scorer access Marvin Duksch, but especially on tithe, the guests were usually required on the defensive.
