Turbulent start of the DFB Cup round of 16! VfB Stuttgart won 2-1 at SC Paderborn with a goal in added time. Bruno Labbadia’s team fell behind early on with a curious own goal. The game to read in the ticker protocol.
DFB Cup, Round of 16
SC Paderborn 07 – VfB Stuttgart
01/31/2023 | 6:00 p.m
1:0 Mavropanos (4./Eigentor), 1:1 Dias (86.), 1:2 Guirassy (90. 4)
The most important thing in brief: Thanks to a goal by Serhou Guirassy in added time, VfB Stuttgart reached the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup. The striker scored the 2-1 (0-1) winning goal at second division SC Paderborn on Tuesday. Shortly before, newcomer Gil Dias (86th) had scored the equalizer in his first game for VfB.
Until then, Paderborn could have dreamed of the cup sensation after an own goal by Konstantinos Mavropanos from 48 meters (4th). Mavropanos made the mistake when he played a back pass, but did not see that goalkeeper Florian Müller was not in goal.
VfB Stuttgart wants to get back into the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup at SC Paderborn on Tuesday (6 p.m. / Sky) for the first time in seven years. Coach Bruno Labbadia has great respect for East Westphalia. They are “a top team in the second division,” said the 56-year-old.
Of course, VfB is favored as a Bundesliga club. The coach left it open on Monday whether regular goalkeeper Florian Müller or, as in the first two rounds of the cup, substitute keeper Fabian Bredlow will play. But he demonstratively strengthened the back of Müller, who had recently slipped up.
