In one of the games of the Bundesliga season so far, SC Freiburg held onto their narrow lead over Vfb Stuttgart, grinding out an important result that sees them enter the top four – ahead of Borussia Dortmund. Here is our analysis of the match!
After a disappointing run of fixtures that saw Augbsurg lose three and draw one from four Bundesliga matches in a row, Heiko Herrlich was dispatched from the club. The final nail in the coffin was a lifeless performance to FC Köln on Matchday 31, where The Billy Goats scored three goals before half-time to put the game to bed. An inspired set of substitutions and half-time team-talk allowed Herrlich’s men to claw their way back to 3-2, but the loss was a bitter defeat in the end and proved to be his final performance at an Augsburg side that now look set to finish well within the bottom half of the table. Here is a tactical analysis of why Heiko Herrlich failed at Augsburg.
