Stuttgart's misery continues in German Cup ouster

27 October 2009 21:10

Stuttgart's dismal season endured another low point on Tuesday when Markus Babbel's side were ousted from the German Cup in the Round of 16 in a 1-0 loss away to Greuther Furth.

Stuttgart dominated the opening half-hour of the match, but Furth were the ones to take the lead in the 32nd minute, against the run of the play.

Leonhard Haas slid in a wonderful pass for midfielder Bernd Nehrig, who got in behind Stuttgart defender Arthur Boka before dispatching a fine shot beyond Jens Lehmann.

Thomas Hitzlsperger and Zdravko Kuzmanovic tried to inspire Stuttgart with great play in the midfield, but striker Ciprian Marica, among others, failed to make good on the chances in the first half. Furth goalkeeper Stephan Lobou was also inspired in goal.

Stuttgart continued to be the better side after the restart, but the Furth defense held strong as Nicolai Muller blocked a drive by Kuzmanovic before it could reach Lobou in the 55th minute.

The visitors infused Julian Schieber and Aleksandr Hleb into the attack on the hour mark, but it was Haas that put a scare into Stuttgart when his drive from 28 yards went just high of Lehmann's goal in the 64th minute.

Elson missed a good chance at an equalizer on 71 minutes after a low pass from substitute Roberto Hilbert, but Marica missed a sitter seven minutes later with Lobou well beaten.

The Furth defense held firm to produce a famous Cup scalp, and the second-division club move on to the quarterfinals.
