Thanks to goals worth seeing, VfB Stuttgart has ended its negative streak in the Bundesliga and scored three important points in the battle to stay relegated.

The Swabians won 2: 1 (1: 1) against 1. FSV Mainz 05 at the start of the 13th match day on Friday evening. Hiroki Ito (21st minute) and Borna Sosa (51st) scored their first Bundesliga goals for the VfB, who had lost all of the previous four competitive games and is now at least temporarily from 16.

Stuttgart - advanced to 13th place in the table.

Alexander Hack (39th) scored for the eighth-placed Mainz team, who had previously been unbeaten in the league for four games in a row.

The VfB fans among the 25,000 spectators were cheering loudly five minutes before the end: winger Silas Katompa Mvumpa made his long-awaited comeback after an eight-month injury break.

Despite the many sporting and personal setbacks that he recently had to deal with, VfB started out quite ambitious.

Omar Marmoush, who was able to play again for the first time since mid-October after recovering from syndesmotic problems, immediately brought a breath of fresh air to the damaged Swabian attack.

FSV keeper Robin Zentner was just able to parry his shot in the third minute.

The guests appeared as the "unpleasant team" expected by Stuttgart coach Pellegrino Matarazzo and initially held back offensively.

Two goals by Karim Onisiwo remained her only dangerous scenes for a long time: the Austrian's first low shot defused VfB goalkeeper Florian Müller (12th), the second flew past after a good turn by the striker on the left (17th).

The tour of the hosts by Ito was then worth seeing.

With a lot of feeling, the Japanese slid the ball from the left into the far corner.

Hundreds of weight were still there with his fingertips, but could no longer prevent the hit.

It was, and that is a bit indicative of their offensive problems in the season so far, the seventh Stuttgart goal by a defender.

Four minutes later, VfB almost got the opportunity to add a penalty kick.

According to the video images, referee Matthias Jöllenbeck withdrew the penalty that was initially imposed.

Mainz goalkeeper Zentner had cleared opponent Konstantinos Mavropanos in a fist defense, but hit the ball first.

So it turned out a bit as it had to come from the hosts' point of view: After a corner Hack hit a header to equalize for Mainz. Leandro Barreiro (42nd), who replaced the injured Dominik Kohr in midfield of the 05er, and Onisiwo (43rd) then moved.

In the second half, too, VfB got off to a better start, scored well again - and again through a defender.

After a pass from Orel Mangala, who had also prepared the 1-0, Sosa hammered the ball from an acute angle from the left under the bar.

Mainz tried to find a swift answer, but Jean-Paul Boetius shot from 18 meters just over the goal (60th).
