Team News

Hoffenheim
Stuttgart
  • Pavel Kaderabek and Marius Bülter are both available after suspension, but central defenders John Anthony Brooks and Ozan Kabak were both sent off last weekend and are suspended.
  • Mërgim Berisha and Marco John have suffered ACL injuries and both will be out long-term. Dennis Geiger will be out for several weeks with a thigh muscle problem. Grischa Prömel has suffered a knee injury and will be out for several weeks.
  • Dan-Axel Zagadou has suffered an ACL injury, while Nikolas Nartey is still working on his return following knee surgery. Anthony Rouault needs an op on his broken jaw.

Prediction

  • Following back-to-back defeats after the winter break, third-placed Stuttgart have bounced back with an impressive seven-game unbeaten run to maintain their surprise Champions League push.
  • Under Pellegrino Matarazzo's tutelage, seventh-placed Hoffenheim have only kept two clean sheets in 40 league games, the worst record of any coach in their brief history.
  • Hoffenhem have not lost at home to Stuttgart in eight games, edged a five-goal thriller in the reverse fixture and can nick a draw on home soil.
