Did you know that…
…Stuttgart have not tended to fare well at the PreZero Arena in recent times?
TSG are currently on a longer unbeaten home run against VfB Stuttgart than they are against any other Bundesliga team. Hoffenheim have won five of their past seven clashes on home turf, while two games have ended in stalemate. Stuttgart have not won in Sinsheim for 10 years, with the last victory coming in February 2013.
…Stuttgart generally struggle on the road?
VfB Stuttgart are winless in 17 Bundesliga away games (eight draws and nine defeats). Their last away victory in the league came in December 2021, when they beat Wolfsburg 2-0.
…TSG are aiming to end a losing streak?
TSG have lost their last four Bundesliga matches – the last time that happened in one season was 10 years ago (February/March 2013). It is now high time they started a successful run.
…Baumgartner bagged a brace in the last clash?
TSG and VfB last faced off in February 2022. Stuttgart led until the 85th minute, but TSG turned the game on its head thanks to a brace from Christoph Baumgartner.
…Breitenreiter has always won this coaching battle?
André Breitenreiter and Bruno Labbadia have gone head-to-head in the dugout in three Bundesliga games, with the TSG coach always coming out on top. Breitenreiter beat Labbadia's Hamburg side while at Schalke (1-0 and 3-2) and guided Hannover to a win over Wolfsburg when Labbadia coached there (2-1).
