The black home series continues: SpVgg Greuther Fürth also missed their first Bundesliga victory in the local Ronhof in the 21st attempt. The team of coach Stefan Leitl lost the basement duel against fellow promoted VfL Bochum 0: 1 (0: 0) and remains bottom of the table with just one point from eight games this season. While the Franconians have their backs to the wall early on, VfL has gained some breathing space with their second win of the season and now seven points. Previously, SpVgg had lost 15 times in 20 home games in the upper house and had five draws. VfL left the relegation zone at least temporarily through the winning goal by Anthony Losilla (80th minute) with a header from close range following a presentation by Eduard Löwen.

Leitl had to do without junior national player Maximilian Bauer, who had injured his head in the U21, and Havard Nielsen. VfL coach Thomas Reis changed his team to five positions after the 3-0 defeat against RB Leipzig. Before the break, 10,586 fans saw a game that didn't have much in common with top division football. The effort was not denied to the staid climbers, but playfully nothing went together in the first half on both sides. Error after error lined up. Goal scenes or even goal chances were therefore absolutely in short supply. Significantly, there was the first and only shot on goal in the 32nd minute: But Bochum's goalkeeper Manuel Riemann had no trouble with Timothy Tillmann's "little shot".

You can see “from the table which teams are there, and that has a lot to do with economic opportunities.

We accept that, don't complain and try to do our best, ”Fürth's manager Rachid Azzouzi said before the game.

The shamrock tried that even after the break.

Now with more pressure.

In the 49th minute, Marco Meyerhöfer forced Riemann to make the first parade.

Shortly afterwards, the Bochum-based Danilo Soares was just able to disturb Cedric Itten.

Fürth acted more purposefully and temporarily settled in the VfL half.

Bochum had to survive a few dicey moments and almost took the lead on the first counterattack in half-time - but the substitute Takuma Asano only hit the outside netting when he was free (67th).

Only Losilla redeemed the Westphalia.
