Kevin Vogt envisioned his return to his home club differently. “It was a classic game where the team that scores the first goal wins,” said the former Bochum resident. It was not Ihlas Bebou, who had possibly groundbreaking 1–0 for the guests, but lifted the ball over Bochum’s keeper Riemann, but also over goal (19th). When VfL took the lead, it was Vogt, of all people, involved in the development. confusing situation.
At first, the goal didn’t seem to count as goalie Soma Novothny was edged first, with the assistant’s flag up. Vogt had cleaned out the flank, with Novothny now leading the next cross as per rules. Referee Frank Willenborg gave the goal based only on TV images, as Novothny had not previously actively intervened in the said scene. “From my point of view, the goal shouldn’t count because Bochum is right behind me,” Vogt explains, “if I didn’t have an opponent behind me I wouldn’t have gone to the ball.” However, this decision is in accordance with the rules.
took too many wrong decisions
But the veteran recognized the real reason for the defeat elsewhere. “But we lost because we did things wrong. We weren’t even mature enough,” Vogt said, “it wasn’t all bad, but we made a lot of wrong decisions.” Especially in the last third of the field, which is important. “Unfortunately we didn’t play some counterattacks well and missed a lot of chances. In my opinion, in the second half we had our game under control, but we still make it 0-1. That shouldn’t happen to us.” Coach Sebastian Hone. “We played our conditions very precisely and carelessly, so that we didn’t get too many degrees. It really bothered me. It was our carelessness.”
So as first-class coach Hoenes continues to wait for his first win against a newcomer after the fifth attempt, three draws so far and two losses now. And Hoffenheim once again missed the opportunity to establish himself in the target table areas.
