2nd minute:

The mood in the sold-out Mercedes-Benz Arena is boiling, which is also due to the guests from the Weser.

1st minute:

The ball rolls.

Can VfB Stuttgart win the first Bundesliga season under Labbadia?

The next 90 minutes will tell.


VfB newcomers Gil Dias and Genki Haraguchi are starting eleven candidates

After his routine performance in the DFB Cup at SC Paderborn (2-1), VfB professional Genki Haraguchi can hope for a starting XI.

Newcomer Gil Dias could also play from the start, as he not only impressed with his goal in the cup and the actual winger from Silas and Tiago Tomas is still injured.

Borna Sosa, who was out for a long time due to a groin problem, should meanwhile be back in the squad.

A starting eleven is still too early for the Croatian, which is why either Nikolas Nartey or Josha Vagnoman should start.

Werder Bremen ended their negative series against VfL Wolfsburg

Werder Bremen got off to a furious start to the season, but had a slump at the beginning of 2023, which caused some worry lines on the forehead on the Weser.

For example, they lost 7-1 against 1. FC Köln and SVW also lost 2-1 at home to Union Berlin.

Coach Ole Werner breathed a sigh of relief on the last matchday when Bremen showed in a 2-1 win against VfL Wolfsburg that they can still do it.

In terms of personnel, the coach has to do without Mitchell Weiser, who is suspended after his fifth yellow card.

In addition, Felix Agu (patellar tendon problems) and Romano Schmid (torn inner ligament) are in rehabilitation training.

VfB Stuttgart is under pressure to play against Werder Bremen

Stuttgart – VfB Stuttgart is deep in the relegation battle.

Under new coach Bruno Labbadia, the Swabians have not yet managed to win in the Bundesliga.

But the coach already has one competitive win on his credit side: VfB won the DFB Cup at SC Paderborn (2-1) and made it into the quarter-finals.

VfB sports director Fabian Wohlgemuth told our editorial team that he would like the team to gain self-confidence from this sense of achievement.

Before the 19th match day, Stuttgart was in 15th place, a whopping eight points behind the promoted team and tenth in the table from Bremen.

Against Werder, VfB, threatened with relegation, is under pressure.

The game kicks off on Sunday at 3.30 p.m. (DAZN) in the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
