VfB Stuttgart: Goalkeeper mistakes again and again: is Müller’s number 1 status shaking now? | Sports

How many mistakes can Florian Müller (25) still afford?

After a decent start, the VfB goalkeeper is having a weak season. After the first 18 games of the season, he already has four serious mistakes that have resulted in goals being conceded. Against Leipzig (1: 2) he looked miserable when Dominik Szoboszlai (22) took a 30-meter free kick.

In the relegation battle, Müller radiates little security to the people in front. Now a goalkeeper discussion threatens!

On Tuesday, VfB will go to Paderborn in the cup (6 p.m. / Sky). So far, Müller’s substitute Fabian Bredlow (27) has been allowed to play twice in the competition. Bruno Labbadia (56) has not yet announced that he wants to change this role allocation. But one thing is clear: If he lets Bredlow play, he could increase the pressure on Müller with a good performance.

The facts about the goalkeeper duel…

► In the first half of the season, Müller fended off a weak 63 percent of the balls. This puts him slightly worse than in the previous season, which was already unsatisfactory (64 percent).

► Not better: Müller only holds 29 percent of the balls deflected. Bredlow, on the other hand, saved a strong 77 percent of balls in five league games during his entire time at VfB. After all, he keeps 41 percent of the shots deflected safely.

► In 48 VfB appearances, Müller only kept five clean sheets. The Saarlander is still waiting for a home game with a clean slate. With Bredlow, VfB have kept five of their nine DFB-Pokal games without conceding a goal, including both games this season.

In Paderborn, it’s not just about getting into the quarter-finals of the cup, but possibly also about a regular place in the VfB goal.
