Guirassy Scores again as Stuttgart Closes in on Bayern

Guirassy Scores again: Serhou Guirassy netted his 21st campaign goal, leading Stuttgart to a 2-0 victory over a 10-man Union Berlin team on Friday, narrowing the gap to just one point behind second-placed Bayern Munich. 

Guirassy delivered a spectacular curling shot to the top corner 19 minutes into the match, maintaining his remarkable scoring run.

Chris Fuehrich, making a solid case for his inclusion in Germany’s Euro 2024 squad, contributed the second goal at 65 minutes with a looping shot from distance to solidify the lead. 

Union Berlin was down to 10 players after Andras Schaefer was sent off with a straight red card for a high challenge on Josha Vagnoman with 21 minutes remaining. 

On the morning of the match, Stuttgart was uplifted by the announcement that their sought-after manager, Sebastian Hoeness, had renewed his contract until 2027, dispelling rumours of his potential move to Bayern Munich. 

Hoeness, who led the team from near relegation last season to third in the league, described the win as deserved, acknowledging room for improvement. 


Now in third, Stuttgart is well-placed for a Champions League comeback, sitting 10 points above fifth-ranked RB Leipzig. Guirassy’s recent performance includes three goals in his last two games, trailing Bayern’s Harry Kane by six goals in the season tally. 

Union’s defeat positions them 14th, yet eight points above relegation danger. Union’s Robin Gosens expressed disappointment, feeling they had chances to alter the game’s outcome. 

This weekend, Bayern has the opportunity to widen their lead over Stuttgart. At the same time, Bayer Leverkusen aims to edge closer to their first Bundesliga title, remaining unbeaten across all competitions after 35 games.
