You expect an experienced and pretty productive striker like Vedad Ibisevic to score from the penalty spot with two minutes left in the match. You expect him to easily score off the rebound with nothing but the net standing in front of him. Instead, the Bosnian missed twice, giving Wolfsburg a change to beat Stuttgart 0-1 in dramatic fashion with a 90th minute goal.
Wolfsburg, despite the win, despite the 90th minute goal by Bas Dost, weren’t the story of the late drama at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart. Wolfsburg were the better team for most of the match, but the hosts got a chance to snatch away a victory with two minutes left on the clock, as Vedad Ibisevic, scorer of 8 goals in 15 matches last season for Stuttgart, stepped up to the penalty spot.
First, his shot was stopped by Diego Benaglio, guessing his left corner as the correct one. The ball bounced to the opposite direction of where the keeper was going, giving Ibisevic the chance to reach the ball first with no keeper in the net. Instead of a simple tap in, Ibisevic tried blasting the ball, resulting in a high and wide shot and eventually, a Stuttgart defeat to start the 2012-2013 Bundesliga season.
