Bundesliga – Stuttgart-Werder Bremen
Stuttgart are 10th in the Bundesliga standings with 39 points won so far. They have a record of 11 wins, 6 draws and 13 defeats since the beginning of the season. In their last five games they won once, made three draws and also lost once. In their last match Stuttgart made a 1-1 draw during the home game against Hannover 96.
This is a good season for Stuttgart so far. Before the beginning of the campaign, the club’s main ambition was to survive and keep its place in the Bundesliga. Now the task is done, because the former champions have a healthy 9 points advantage in front of the 16th Freiburg.
Now Stuttgart faces Werder Bremen.
Werder are 12th in the Bundesliga with 37 points – just two less than their next opponent. The club have a record of 9 wins, 10 draws and 11 defeats. In their last five matches Werder won three consecutive times, but after that the team won just one point from the two matches against Hannover 96 and RB Leipzig.
Just like Stuttgart, Werder also have a healthy lead in front of the danger zone, so they can feel safe for their future in the league.
Stuttgart will be without Andreas Beck and Carlos Mane for this clash, while Benjamin Pavard, Chadrac Akolo and Matthias Zimmermann are doubtful for the game.
Thomas Delaney is suspended for Werder, while Fin Bartels is still injured. Aron Johannsson, Ludwig Augustinsson, Justin Eilers, Philipp Bargfrede, Yuning Zhang and Michael Zetterer are all doubtful.
This shall be an interesting match between Stuttgart and Werder Bremen. Both teams are very similar in terms of quality, so it shall be a good one.
