RB Leipzig plays and storms against VfB Stuttgart and bad mood. The mobile phone affair is forgotten. But now the opponent has a big problem: It will be autumn again in Stuttgart.
Initial situation of the game: It is said with pleasure that RB Leipzig has close connections with Salzburg. That cannot be at all. It’s a completely different country after all. The game against VfB Stuttgart is instead the real brother duel. RB coach Rangnick, an old VfB player, goal scorer Timo Werner the same. Bayern international Joshua Kimmich came from Stuttgart via Leipzig to Munich, former RB coach Alexander Zorniger is a VfB man. The Uefa should investigate these interdependencies, but they never do anything.
Result of the game: 2:0 for RB. Goals from Willi Orban before the break and Jean-Kévin Augustin after the change. Another result of the game: VfB Stuttgart gets stuck with two points after five games. Only Schalke is worse.
The first half: Mario Gomez, VfB, and Timo Werner, RB, the German World Cup storm were on the pitch, and at the end of this half you had a slight idea why it didn’t work so well with the scoring in Russia. RB was highly superior right from the start and missed numerous chances in the person of Werner. Gomez got none at all. Defense chief Willi Orban then had to do it with the 1-0.

The second half: Ging continued the same way. Gomez was still on a lost position at the front, and you could be glad that Mehmet Scholl no longer works as a TV expert. VfB was even less likely than before the break. The 2-0 defeat of Augustin, who had just substituted, was a redemption for everyone.
Player of the game: In the days before there had been quite a lot of unrest in Leipzig about the so-called mobile phone affair. The regulars Nordi Mukiele and Augustin are said to have played around a bit too long with their smartphones. And since it is still the case in the Bundesliga that footballers should be grown-ups, but still sometimes have to follow rules as if they were little schoolchildren, both were suspended for the game in Frankfurt. Mukiele played against the VfB again from the beginning – and made this extremely convincing. Augustin came into the game and scored immediately. Maybe football pros are just little schoolchildren.
Number of the match: About 43,000 spectators fit into the arena of Leipzig. Against Hannover there were 38,000, against Düsseldorf 34,000, now only 32,000. The football euphoria in Saxony has a dent. But at some point FC Bayern will also be coming to Leipzig.

Debutant of the game: referee Robert Schröder from Hanover. It was his first Bundesliga game, and if you imagine a calm and calm representative from the capital of Lower Saxony, then this Mr. Schröder comes to mind. So Robert Schröder, not the other one from Hannover with this name.
Noise of the game: This matchday of the league was accompanied by fan protests, the spectators wanted to be silent the first 20 minutes in protest against the commerce. Leipzig is the somewhat different club. Here the fans sang from the beginning. What should they protest against?
Season of the game: It was the first game of the VfB after the official beginning of autumn. It’s the time of year when the coaches of VfB Stuttgart normally have to leave their seats. Tayfun Korkut will know that.
Realisation of the game: VfB Stuttgart “has not had the luck of the game yet”, said Managing Director Michael Reschke, probably the best known squad planner in the world. He also lacks some other things.
