VfB Stuttgart team news
If Stuttgart are to get back on the winning path then Matarazzo must do without potentially seven first-team players. At least five are dealing with respective injuries: Naouirou Ahamada (broken toe), Nikolas Nartey (knee), Mohamed Sankoh (knee), Silas Katompa Mvumpa (shoulder) and Pascal Stenzel (pelvis) while there are question marks over the availability of Omar Marmoush (muscular) and Clinton Mola (knee).
Regarding the latter of the doubtful pair, Stuttgart have been indebted to Marmoush as well as Sasa Kalajdzic and Mavropanos. Kalajdzic and Mavropanos are the team’s joint top scorers with four goals, followed by Marmoush with three. The hosts, meanwhile, have secured 18 points (five wins, three draws and seven losses) from a possible 45 on offer across 15 Bundesliga contests on home soil this season.
Wolfsburg team news
So far on the road this season, Wolfsburg have four wins, two draws, and nine losses. Die Wölfe are on a four-match away winless streak (one draw and three losses). The last time they earned a win away was February 12 against Eintracht Frankfurt. In fact, Wolfsburg have lost their last three away games in the Bundesliga. Since Florian Kohfeldt took over, the Wolves have lost seven league games away from home, with only Bielefeld (8) and Mainz (9) losing more.
Max Kruse, who’s expected to start, has netted at least three goals in a single Bundesliga match for the fourth time last matchday. Kruse also reached the mark of 10 Bundesliga goals for Wolfsburg (12 total), with the Wolves the fifth team for which he achieved this (after Union, Werder, Gladbach and Freiburg); in league history, only Bruno Labbadia has managed this for more different teams (6). Scheduled to not start alongside Kruse will be injured quartet Paulo Otávio (knee), Micky van de Ven (thigh), Luca Waldschmidt (ankle), William (knee) while Maxence Lacroix (hamstring) is doubtful.
