Stuttgart host Koln at Mercedes-Benz Arena in the Bundesliga on Friday. Koln got their first point of the season in their last match, can they avoid defeat in Stuttgart?

Stuttgart Form


Stuttgart started the season with a 1-0 win against 3 Liga club Hansa Rostock 1-0 in the German Cup. They suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Freiburg in their opening Bundesliga match.

Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side then overturned a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2 at Mainz. Goals to Silas Wamangituka and Daniel Didavi made it 2-2, Mateo Klimowicz and Sasa Kalajdzic scoring after Mainz were reduced to 10 men.

Stuttgart drew 1-1 at home to Bayer Leverkusen thanks to a Sasa Kalajdzic equaliser. Their last match was a 2-0 win at Hertha Berlin.

Kalajdzic hit the woodwork early on before goals to Marc Oliver Kempf and Gonzalo Castro. It was a fortunate result after having 36% possession, 7-15 shots and 1.41-1.43 expected goals.
