Goalkeeper question at VfB: Florian Müller will replace Fabian Bredlow again
As in the first leg, Florian Müller will replace the injured Fabian Bredlow in goal for VfB Stuttgart. Bredlow suffered a torn medial ligament in his knee during warm-up before Matchday 34 against TSG Hoffenheim.
Meanwhile, Dan-Axel Zagadou, who has recovered and suffered from foot pain, is likely to join the squad. However, the Frenchman will have to take a seat on the bench, as Stuttgart's back three around Hiroki Ito, Waldemar Anton and Konstantinos Mavropanos have shown good performances recently.
HSV coach Tim Walter fears for Jonas David
As far as personnel are concerned, Hamburg will have to make do without Anssi Suhonen, who was shown the red card in the first leg at VfB.

VfB coach Sebastian Hoeneß remains focused
While Walter, as usual, is confidently tackling the difficult home task against Stuttgart, his counterpart, VfB coach Sebastian Hoeness, chooses a calm tone.
After the clear home victory, the Swabian coach tried to put the brakes on the euphoria. "The goal was to achieve this good starting position, but the pressure is still there because we have to confirm our performance in the second game and take the second step," Hoeneß said at the press conference on Sunday.
HSV need a football miracle after a clear first leg defeat against VfB
His counterpart Walter still believes in the football miracle: "We're starting at minus three, but we're trying to work our way up bit by bit. My boys have a really awesome character. We are a family, I am totally convinced of my family." 1887 percent, so the coach alluded to the founding year of HSV.
