Stuttgart is currently facing relegation, but winning this match could be their salvation. They are 3 points behind a Hertha that soon will be facing Dortmund, which might keep their hopes alive. But on May 14, Köln will visit the Mercedes Benz Arena to try and crush Stuttgart’s hopes for the Bundesliga safety.
Locking Stuttgart in the relegation zone isn’t Köln’s only objective in this last match of the Bundesliga season. Baumgart’s men are also trying to get a 6th-place finish and a Europa League spot as they can still surpass Union Berlin in the standings, depending on their result against Bochum.
Köln most recently took a loss against Wolfsburg, but before that, they were on a 4-game win streak. Throughout the last 6 Bundesliga matches, Köln scored 12 out of the possible 18 points, showing they are in a great form coming into this match. But what might be worrying for them, is that they are against a Stuttgart currently fighting for their lives.
Matarazzo’s side is on a 6-game winless streak, which is the main reason why they are in a life-or-death situation. Stuttgart has been having problems maintaining consistency in the Bundesliga. In 2016, they were relegated to the second division, luckily for them, they were able to promote back in the following season. But that only lasted a couple of years, because, in the 2019 season, they were relegated once again.
This must be frustrating for the team because before the 2017 season, they maintained themselves in the Bundesliga for almost 40 years. They are now facing, once again, the possibility of going back to the Bundesliga second division, and if we are being realistic, they most likely will. Even if they take down Köln, they still have to wait for the Hertha versus Dortmund result. Knowing that your fate is in someone else’s hands is always an excruciating situation to be in.
