Stuttgart is set to continue their winning streak in the Bundesliga as they face Hoffenheim on Saturday. On the other hand, despite losing two out of their last three games, the visitors will arrive at the match in sixth place in the league standings.
Stuttgart, has seemingly lost touch with the sensation of defeat after their triumphant 3-0 win against Union Berlin in their recent away match, which has propelled their winning streak to an impressive 6 consecutive games.
Serhou Guirassy initiated the scoring in Germany’s capital, elevating his remarkable tally to 14 goals in eight league games thus far this season. Subsequently, late goals from Silas and Deniz Undav enhanced their team’s triumph, providing an additional layer of excitement to the match. This victory ensured Sebastian Hoeness’s side maintained their position in second at the Bundesliga table.
Pellegrino Matarazzo successfully steered Stuttgart to promotion in December 2019 and secured a top half finish for them in their first season back in the Bundesliga. Despite his initial success, an underwhelming subsequent campaign resulted in his dismissal in October. However, he was appointed as Hoffenheim’s new manager in February of this year, and is looking for revenge this time around.
Matarazzo is eager to regain their winning momentum and halt the progress of their former club this weekend. A triumph would propel them to the fifth position in the standings.
Unfortunately for Hoffenheim, they will be deprived of their prominent striker Andrej Kramaric due to a thigh ailment. Additionally, Dennis Geiger, Stanley John, Ozan Kabak, and Stanley Nsoki will be absent from Saturday’s team sheet due to injury concerns.
Stuttgart’s Guirassy encountered a slight hamstring problem during the recent match against Union Berlin. Consequently, the talented forward from Guinea may see the game from the sidelines in order to not aggravate the situation further.
Nevertheless, Stuttgart continues to have decent attacking power thanks to Silas and Undav, thus we give the edge to the resurgent side.
