This means Union missed the first time in the club’s history to celebrate four consecutive victories in the Bundesliga.

Awoniyi goal is good for the game and then the game picks up speed
Three days after the eventful trip to Feyenoord Rotterdam (1:3) in the conference league, when club president Dirk Zingler’s federation delegation was attacked by hooligans in a bar and 59 union supporters were subsequently arrested, he set off in Stuttgart. For extended periods of the first half, 32,595 fans in the ring saw no lights out.
For the first time since the coronavirus outbreak in March 2020, VfB was allowed to fill its entire stadium again on Sunday. But instead of about 60,000 potential viewers, only half attended. It took half an hour for the mood of the Stuttgart fans to suffer a bitter setback: Shiraldo Becker, who had replaced striker Max Kroos and returned to the starting line-up for the first time in nine months, served attacking partner Ooni perfectly on the edge of the field. Penalty area hit by a direct shot into the long corner.
The goal was good for the match, and soon the confrontation increased. But VfB captain Wataru Endo (33) and Mark Oliver Kempf (34) missed the direct answer. On the other hand, Awoniyi had a double (38) chance after preparatory work for powerful Genki Haraguchi. After changing sides, Stuttgart took over first, but Carazor’s unnecessary dismissal made the task difficult.
