Stuttgart Fans Console Gutted Defender Timo Baumgartl After Costly Error

Bundesliga

Timo Baumgartl is an 18-year-old defender for the current last-place team in the Bundesliga. 

His blunder Friday night gifted a goal to Marco Reus that ended up being the difference as bottom-of-the table Stuttgart fell 3-2 to Borussia Dortmund

As a result, we're once again reminded that Bundesliga fans are some of football's best. 

In some circles, Baumgartl would be vilified for his defensive miscue, but instead, the support at the Mercedes-Benz Arena consoled and supported the downtrodden defender and his team-mates in defeat.
