Stuttgart stutter at Freiburg

VfB Stuttgart remain second after succumbing to a shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of SC Freiburg.

By Manfred Christoph

VfB Stuttgart missed out on the chance to return to the top of the Bundesliga after succumbing to a surprise 2-0 defeat at the hands of SC Freiburg.

Iashvili opener
Freiburg, who began the weekend third from bottom, took a shock first-half lead through Alexander Iashvili and Stuttgart's chances of turning the game around were all but lost when Martin Stranzl was dismissed on 69 minutes. With the visitors continuing to seek an equaliser, Soumaila Coulibaly scored a long-range goal deep into added time to make it two and condemn Stuttgart to their first defeat of the season.

Brazilian goals
Elsewhere, FC Schalke 04 won 2-1 against high-flying 1. FSV Mainz 05 in front of more than 61,000 fans in Gelsenkirchen. All three of Schalke’s Brazilian players found the net, with playmaker Lincoln opening the scoring midway through the first half, before defender Marcelo Bordon gifted Mainz an equaliser with an own goal on the hour. Ailton saved his countryman’s blushes nine minutes later though, when the striker grabbed his first goal for the club since moving from defending champions Werder Bremen in the summer.
