Stuttgart will be searching for their first victory of the season when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Frankfurt, meanwhile, are aiming to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Wolfsburg.
Despite failing to win in the Bundesliga so far this season, Stuttgart have remarkably drawn five of their six matches so far, with their impressive 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich last weekend extending their run of draws to three successive games.
Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side had gone down to 10 men in each of their previous two games, so keeping all players on the pitch against such a dangerous opponent was absolutely crucial if they were to come away from the Allianz Arena unscathed.
Mathys Tel’s strike had given Bayern a half-time lead despite the hosts making several changes to their starting XI ahead of a tricky test against Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek, with Stuttgart pouncing on this factor after the break.
Having seen the Wolves gain their first victory of the season at Frankfurt’s expense last weekend, Matarazzo will be hoping his side can turn their recent draws into three points on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Frankfurt appear to be finding juggling the Bundesliga and Champions League football for the first time in their history difficult at present, having been somewhat inconsistent during the early weeks of the season.
Their 4-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig was followed up by a disappointing 3-0 defeat at home to Sporting Lisbon in their maiden match in Europe’s elite competition, while the results were flipped in the past week as they lost at home to their head coach Oliver Glasner’s former club Wolfsburg, before impressively beating Marseille 1-0 at Stade Velodrome on Tuesday.
There is nothing for head coach Glasner to be particularly alarmed about given that his side have taken eight points from six league matches while retaining a decent chance of progressing into the knockout stages in Europe.
