Caltex Socceroos keeper Mitch Langerak has saved a penalty to ensure his 10-man Vfb Stuttgart secured a vital point this morning (Tues) in their quest for the Bundesliga2 title.
Top-of-the-table Stuttgart drew 1-1 at fourth-placed Eintracht Braunschweiger with Langerak pulling off a couple of crucial saves for the visitors.
After Carlos Mane gave Stuttgart a third minute lead, Langerak was prominent in restoring their lead, stopping Mirko Boland’s penalty just after the half hour mark.
Unfortunately for Stuttgart they conceded another penalty just before the break – which saw defender Marcin Kaminski sent off – and this time the Aussie gloveman was beaten.
Both sides had chances in an end-to-end second half but Langerak held firm as Stuttgart came away with a draw which has them four points clear of Union Berlin at the top with 11 games to go.
The 28-year-old gloveman has been in sensational form in Germany this season and is expected to be named this week in the Caltex Socceroos squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Iraq and UAE.
