New manager Thomas Schneider will stick to his 4-2-3-1 system, with William Kvist keeping his spot in defensive midfield.
Last-minute signing Karim Haggui could replace the injured Georg Niedermeier at centre-back.
Ibrahima Traoré returns from suspension to play on the left wing.
Hertha lost their first game of the season a fortnight ago and the team had the international break to work on their organisation again. It remains to be seen if Ronny can replace the injured playmaker Alexander Baumjohann adequately.
Stuttgart are back on track after a 6-2 win against Hoffenheim in the first game under new manager Thomas Schneider last time out. The team seems to have confidence again after a disastrous start to the season and players like William Kvist have returned to the first eleven in good form.
Expect this to be a competitive game from the outset.
