When will VfB Stuttgart stay in the league, when will they be relegated? Relegation is also possible

As in the previous season, VfB Stuttgart can save themselves directly on the last matchday. If the Swabians win, they will continue to play first-class next season. In the event of a draw against Hoffenheim, Bochum and Schalke should not win, then VfB would also be saved. If Stuttgart even loses, direct relegation would be achieved if Bochum loses and S04 does not win.

VfB would have to go into the relegation if they draw their own and if either Schalke or Bochum wins. If VfB loses, VfL scores and Schalke does not win, Stuttgart will also go into the relegation play-offs.

The worst-case scenario would be a direct relegation of Stuttgart. The Swabians would have to make the bitter transition to League 2 if they only get a draw against TSG and their rivals Bochum and Schalke both win. If VfB loses, Bochum would only not have to lose and win S04, then the third relegation within seven years would also be a done deal for Stuttgart.

Borna Sosa is back in the starting line-up at VfB Stuttgart, Zagadou's involvement is questionable

In the run-up to the game against TSG Hoffenheim, VfB coach Sebastian Hoeneß has made it clear that Borna Sosa will play again. "Borna is fit and makes a good impression. If he stays fit, he'll play, there's no discussion for me. It is an important factor for us. He's trained for this position," the Stuttgart coach explained. Against Mainz 05, Nikolas Nartey replaced the Croatian at left-back, who was sidelined at short notice due to inflammation in his mouth and throat.

Meanwhile, the use of Dan-Axel Zagadou, who was substituted against Mainz due to a head injury, is questionable. Although this no longer causes him any problems, the Frenchman is now plagued by foot problems, so that a failure is likely. Nevertheless, Hoeneß has a "faint hope" that Zagadou will be fit in time for the game against Hoffenheim. If this is not the case, Konstantinos Mavropanos replaces him.

TSG Hoffenheim already saved: Pellegrino Matarazzo still wants to win against former club VfB Stuttgart

With a 4-2 win against FC Union Berlin, TSG Hoffenheim managed to stay in the league last matchday. Thus, the Kraichgauer is spared a relegation final against VfB Stuttgart. Nevertheless, TSG want to win. Ahead of his return to his old place of work, former Stuttgart coach Pellegrino Matarazzo told Sky: "I wish TSG to win and VfB stay in the league. This is not diplomatic, but the truth, which I feel. We are competitors. I'm the coach of TSG. We're going there to score points."

VfB Stuttgart have put themselves in a good position to achieve their goal of staying in the league

Stuttgart - After VfB Stuttgart's 4-1 win over Mainz 05, the Swabians should be relieved at least for a short time. As a result, they have their salvation on the last matchday against TSG Hoffenheim in their own hands. A win is needed, then the results in the other places are irrelevant for VfB, who in this case would also play first division football next year.
