In the first round, a lively exchange of blows quickly developed in the Baden-Württemberg duel. VfB Stuttgart took the lead in the seventh minute of the game thanks to Silas Wamangituka. Referee Tobias Stieler had initially not given the goal because of an alleged offside position; after using the video evidence, however, the goal counted.
The Breisgauer, however, were unimpressed and came in the 14th minute by Ermedin Demirovic to the 1-1 equalizer. As a result, VfB hardly got into the game – the consequence: the 2-1 for SCF by Woo-yeong Jeong (37th). Before the break, the Swabians had the chance to equalize, but Nicolas Gonzalez was unable to accommodate the penalty kick in the opponent’s case (45th).

After the break, Pellegrino Matarazzo reacted and brought in Konstantinos Mavropanos for Pascal Stenzel. In the 48th minute, the Cannstatt club came up with a promising opportunity, missed the 2-2 again – and continued to lag behind. A quarter of an hour before the end, Mavropanos had the goal on the foot, but not for the first time in this game Freiburg goalkeeper Florian Müller was there with a save. When substitute Erik Thommy also failed on the post (88th), the afternoon was perfect for VfB.
