Stuttgart vs Arminia Bielefeld build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Although they won’t be too hopeful, Stuttgart are still in with a mathematical chance of finishing above Borussia Monchengladbach and Union Berlin to qualify for the Europa Conference League play-off round. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side are currently ninth, two points behind seventh-placed Union Berlin thanks to back-to-back wins going into the final weekend. That brace of victories, against Augsburg and Gladbach, came after a four-match losing streak had seen them fall away from the Conference League race. A win this weekend, coupled with defeats for Union Berlin and Gladbach would send Stuttgart to the continental stage, though whatever happens it will have been an impressive return to the Bundesliga.
Hoping to make it two from two for promoted sides staying up this season will be Arminia Bielefeld, and their destiny is still in their own hands – though it isn’t a comfortable situation. As things stand Bielefeld are one point above Werder Bremen, who occupy the relegation play-off spot, and two ahead of 17th-placed FC Koln. Although Bremen have a tough game against Gladbach, Koln are facing already-relegated Schalke, so Bielefeld will likely need a win to guarantee their spot in the Bundesliga next season (due to their worst goal difference vs Koln if they were to draw). Bielefeld go into the game losing just one of their past six Bundesliga matches, winning two and drawing three, so safety could be achieved.
- Stuttgart (vs Borussia Monchengladbach): Kobel; Mavropanos*, Anton, Kempf; Massimo, Karazor, Endo*, Sosa; Forster, Thommy; Kalajdzic.
- Arminia Bielefeld (vs Hoffenheim): Ortega; Brunner, Pieper, Nilsson, Lucoqui*; Maier, Prietl; Doan, Okugawa, Voglsammer; Klos.
Endo is suspended for Stuttgart and will miss the end of the season alongside Tanguy Coulibaly, Nicolas Gonzalez, Mateo Klimowicz, Orel Mangala and Silas Wamangituka, while Kostas Mavropanos is a doubt. Anderson Lucoqui is Bielefeld’s only absentee through suspension.

Player to watch: Sasa Kalajdzic (Stuttgart)
While Silas Wamangituka receives a lot of praise for his role in Stuttgart’s impressive Bundesliga return, he isn’t the club’s top scorer this season (even when cutting it at the point of his campaign-ending injury). That honour belongs to striker Sasa Kalajdzic.
The 23-year-old has scored 16 goals in the Bundesliga this season, with only five players managing more – Robert Lewandowski, Andre Silva, Erling Haaland, Wout Weghorst and Andrej Kramaric, keeping Kalajdzic in fine company. Kalajdzic’s tally was aided by a fantastic run of form between the end of January and mid-March, scoring in seven consecutive Bundesliga matches (eight goals).
Since that streak ended, Kalajdzic has managed just three times in eight games, but he has found the net in each of his past two matches.
