Team News

Stuttgart
FC Koln
  • Pascal Stenzel is suspended after his sending off last weekend, while Deniz Undav is ruled out with a muscle tear.
  • Dan-Axel Zagadou has suffered an ACL injury. Nikolas Nartey is nearing a return after knee surgery.
  • Goalkeeper Alexander Nübel is ruled out with a hip injury, Fabian Bredlow will likely deputise between the sticks.
  • Jeff Chabot is available after suspension, Mark Uth is struggling with a knee injury, while striker Luca Waldschmidt will be out for several weeks through injury.
  • Davie Selke has returned to training but is unlikely to be risked just yet.

Prediction

  • Six points from the safety zone, struggling Koln are the league's lowest scorers with only 15 goals and played last Friday so enjoy more rest than Stuttgart.
  • Following back-to-back defeats after the winter break, Stuttgart have bounced back with four straight league wins to maintain their Champions League push.
  • Third-placed Stuttgart won the reverse fixture 2-0 but Koln are fighting for their lives at the bottom so back a stalemate at good odds.
