Stuttgart off the mark with Bielefeld win

20 August 2006 18:58

BIELEFELD, Aug 20 (SW) - After an embarrassing start to the new season at home last weekend, nine-man Stuttgart finished Sunday on a much better note as they defeated Arminia Bielefeld 3-2.

The match was quite straightforward as Stuttgart led 1-0 at half-time, but a wild second half saw the match go back and forth before Stuttgart finally emerged victorious.

On 39 minutes, the visitors took the lead as Portuguese defender Fernando Meira rose to nicely head home Antonio da Silva's corner kick, and they held that lead until the 64th minute when the action started.

Mexican international Ricardo Osorio was shown a red card for handling in the Stuttgart area, giving substitute Bielefeld striker Abdelaziz Ahanfouf a spot kick which he converted to make it 1-1.

The disadvantage didn't seem to bother Stuttgart, however, as they pulled level in the 73rd minute when Cacau converted Daniel Bierofka's cross on the counter.

Bielefeld, too, showed a great amount of resiliency as they pulled level three minutes later through a fine Jörg Böhme goal and it looked as if the match was well in their favor when da Silva picked up his second yellow 10 minutes from time.

However, in the 82nd minute, Cacau got his second of the match in spectacular style with a drive from over 30 yards out to snatch the stunning win.
