Alexander Nübel is in goal for VfB Stuttgart

With Dennis Seimen, VfB Stuttgart have a goalkeeping talent that some have expected as a cup keeper. But VfB coach Sebastian Hoeneß does not want any experiments for the time being and is relying on Alexander Nübel, who is on loan from FC Bayern Munich. At the press conference ahead of the DFB-Pokal, Hoeneß said: "It's important that he plays. I don't know anything after that. He will be in goal against Balingen and will also start the season as number one."

Stuttgart will have to do without Deniz Undav

With Deniz Undav, VfB recently loaned out a promising striker from Brighton, but he tore a partial lateral ligament in his knee in training. He will be absent from VfB for several weeks, including the start of the competitive season in Reutlingen.
