Ballack returns in Bayern 0 - Stuttgart 0

Share |

Bayern Munich got a 0-0 draw against VfB Stuttgart on Saturday, raising the hopes of its Bundesliga rivals. Michael Ballack was back in the main squad after a 28-day injury layoff. The draw slowed a runaway charge by Bayern, off to a 12-2-1 start, and allowed Hamburger SV to close to within four points with a 3-1 victory over Cologne. The next two sides, Werder Bremen and Schalke, also won.

Sebastian Deisler got the first red card of his career after he kicked a player in the 42nd minute.

"We hoped to win in the second half, but after Sebastian Deisler was ejected, we had to play more defensive than usual," coach Magath said.

The return of Bayern's Michael Ballack didn't enliven the match. Stuttgart lacked the creativity to exploit its man advantage and captain Zvonomir Saldo wasted its only two chances on headers.

"The spectators probably didn't get their money's worth," Magath said.
