unfortunately I wasn't nominated for the starting eleven again when we faced VfB Stuttgart on the last weekend, but I gave my best in this week's training sessions, because I would like to play against Nuremberg badly.
The derby against Stuttgart started well for us, having a good control of the opponent and the ball and taking the lead deservedly after 14 minutes through Peniel Mlapa. After about 60 minutes of game time a few mistakes made their way into our game and the Swabians took these chances icecold and scored twice. Although we lost this match, it was in my eyes a way better performance than we showed in the previous match in Leverkusen.
In the next and second last match of this season in Nuremberg we are facing a team that played a successful and steady season. The last two direct duels in the Bundesliga ended in a draw, but I really hope that we can claim the three points on Saturday and show our fans in the last match a great performance with a lot of confidence on our backs.
