Arminia’s 3-0 win over Stuttgart on Wednesday, was hard fought at the Schüco Arena. With both teams drawing in their previous fixtures, they were keen to pick up points. Arminia Bielefeld wanted to improve their league standing following a disappointing 0-0 draw with Hoffenheim in their previous game. Stuttgart had managed to pick up a single point in their encounter with Borussia Mönchengladbach. As it stands, Arminia Bielefeld and Stuttgart sit 15th, (17 points) and 10th, (22 points), in the table respectively, after 17 matches.

Arminia Bielefeld found the net, with Fabian Klos opening the rout, 27 minutes in. Later, Arminia Bielefeld took the lead with a goal form a calamitous own goal from Marc Kempf in the 47th minute just before half-time. The score at half time was 2-0.

Arminia Bielefeld continued to pile on the pressure the second half and were rewarded, with a goal from Ritsu Doan just before the final whistle, sealing a resounding 3-0 victory for the home side.

For Arminia Bielefeld Christian Gebauer, Sven Schipplock, Nils Seufert, Cebio Soukou and Mike Van der Hoorn came on for Reinhold Yabo, Sergio Cordova, Fabian Klos, Ritsu Doan and Marcel Hartel, and Stuttgart brought on Philipp Klement, Roberto Massimo, Daniel Didavi and Darko Churlinov for Pascal Stenzel, Tanguy Coulibaly, Philipp Forster and Borna Sosa.
