Stuttgart and Darmstadt are at opposite ends of the 2 Bundesliga table ahead of a Monday night fixture at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor. Stuttgart were unlucky in their last away match, but are expected to earn all three points against a stuttering Darmstadt side.

Darmstadt Form


Darmstadt are dangerously close to the relegation zone after one win since November. A 3-1 home defeat against 2 Bundesliga leaders Arminia Bielefeld saw Tobias Kempe reduce the deficit to 2-1 but it wasn’t enough.

A disappointing 0-0 draw at lowly Wehen Wiesbaden followed with midfielder Victor Pálsson sent off in the 75th minute.

Darmstadt News


Strikers Felix Platte is nearing a return and Ognjen Ozegovic is injured. Winger Braydon Manu is out alongside central defender Mathias Wittek. 

Holding midfielder Victor Pálsson is suspended with Yannick Stark set to replace him, Fabian Schnellhardt an option off the bench.

Stuttgart Form


Stuttgart are chasing promotion but have to start doing better on the road. A 2-1 defeat at Sandhausen was unlucky with Tim Walter’s side enjoying 73% possession, 29-16 shots and 15-6 corners. 

A Silas Wamangituka penalty came too late, the Congo DR striker coming off the bench at home against Nurnberg at half time and slotting home another penalty to make it 1-1. Mario Gomez put Stuttgart ahead before assisting Philipp Förster who secured a comfortable 3-1 win.

Stuttgart News


Attacking midfielder Daniel Didavi started last week, he was taken off at half time but likely due to a tactical switch rather than injury. Central defender and captain Marc Oliver Kempf remains suspended and Marcin Kaminski is injured, but Nathaniel Phillips has been doing a good job alongside Holger Badstuber.

Left-back Borna Sosa started against Nurnberg with Gonzalo Castro slotting back into midfield where he is more effective. Striker Sasa Kalajdzic out until the New Year. Mario Gomez, Silas Wamangituka, Hamadi Al Ghaddioui and Nicolás Gonzalez compete for the striker spot unless Tim Walter varies his tactics.
