From the last seven games, the VfB brought about the coach Pellegrino Matarazzo for the disposition according to Club information only one point.
“We have to look at the table, only four games won. Four points behind are not ten. But it also means that you can not repair it with a game.

Also, Chris Leading remains confident: “We pull out the positive and do not hang us. We know the situation. We just have to continue. We have many games. Everyone stays tuned and work hard.”
Bayer trumps on

Moussa Diaby, at 5: 1 in the last home game against Augsburg three times successful, according to Schönem Solo (41th), the only 1.74 meter large Amine Adli by head (52nd), Jungstar Florian Wirtz (85th) and scorer Patrik Schick (89.) met. For the VFB, the Tiago Tomas borrowed in winter of Tiagoing Lisbon met in his starting element debut in the Bundesliga twice (49. and 88). With seven points ahead of rank five Leverkusen continues to keep a clear course on the last two times missed Champions League.

But the Swabia held with a good order and were quite dangerous. Three times fell in front of Diaby’s genius stroke, which was blocked after a dribbling and just further drifting, almost a hit. Twice for Bayer at a post-shot of Patrick Schick (13th) and a distance gate of Florian Wirtz (34.), once for the VfB at a slatted Schlenzer of Tiago Tomas (28th).
