The catalan cult club with its exceptional players lionel messi, xavi or andres iniesta will probably remain forever out of reach for the rheinlanders. But the direct, fast and precise passing game of the borussians is astonishingly similar to the dizzying spanish “tiki taka. Gunter netzer even trusts his successors to achieve a sensation. “In the end, they too can become champions,” said the club legend.
Favre, who has turned an almost certain relegation candidate into a championship contender within a few months, knows that he can only improve the quality of his team by a few nuances. "It will be difficult to play better", said the swiss after his 50. Victory in the fubball bundesliga. "We can still improve a few details, develop further there."
As far as individual class is concerned, the fourth-placed team in the table cannot compete with the far more prominent squads of bayern munchen, borussia dortmund and FC schalke 04. Gladbach compensates for this disadvantage against the top trio, which is only one point ahead of it, with impressive unity, playful maturity and an almost perfected counterattacking football. Netzer enthused in an interview with the daily newspaper "die welt": "it’s a pure pleasure to watch them."The former playmaker praised the "wonderful organization of the team" and attested that it was playing at a "damn high level.
"We’re playing outstandingly as a team, that’s our strength," explained vogler, who is not only famous for his twelfth goal of the season (81). Minute) strong-armed marco reus. "Everyone fights for each other." Another plus is the easy change of personnel. Igor de camargo seamlessly replaced mike hanke, who was substituted with a painful horse kiss, and scored the 3:0 (84.) to the in this high deserved victory. Even if it seems hard to imagine, the borussians are a serious title contender if they can conserve this class.
For the team, however, the championship is not an issue. "We like to look at the table and are happy that we are at the top. But we also know where we come from and that we are not a top team," stressed hanke, who scored the 1:0 (31.). "That’s why we are realistic and do not start dreaming about the championship." Head of defense dante assured: "despite the victory, we do not talk about the international burst, because the season is still very long. We weren’t allowed to start dreaming."
Despite the good starting position, favre does not deviate from his strategy of thinking "from game to game". His proteges even follow him word for word in this verbal defensive strategy. "We really only look from game to game," national player reus assured. "We are happy about the victory, but that doesn’t change our way of thinking."
The weak and sometimes confused stuttgart team, on the other hand, will have to rethink their approach. After only one point from the past six games, the trend is pointing steeply downward. "We must see that we do not slide down into the relegation zone," said goalkeeper sven ulreich, who prevented a higher defeat several times. Things could get tight for coach bruno labbadia if the slump continues, even if vfb manager fredi bobic stressed: "labbadia is not an issue. We are convinced of him."
