My last weekend in Stuttgart, I could not pass up on the opportunity to see a live match in the German Bundesliga, sorry - I'm a massive football fan. The visitors, Sevilla, came from the European competitions, it looked set to be a great game. Not so, the "VFB", as Stuttgart are called, dominated from the start, they controlled the "tempo" of the match and did a good job. They had a compact defense, they were pressing in midfield and stopped most of Sevilla's attacks. They scored in the first 10 minutes, and then 2 more in the second half. The atmosphere was phenomenal and the stadium almost full (53,000 spectators), the perfect day with sunshine.
