Match preview 🏆 

There is one place in next season's Bundesliga still up for grabs, and we believe that the home side can take a big leap forward.

For the last four matches of the regular season, Stuttgart youth coach Nico Willig has been in charge of first-team affairs, and there has been an improvement. Home wins over Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg saw the club avoid automatic relegation, and a run of one defeat in four matches has built confidence and momentum. Notably, they have kept three clean sheets in their last four, a massive improvement considering they were defensively one of the poorest sides before Willig took charge. 

The biggest concern for visiting Union fans is that the capital club's form over the past couple of months has been poor. They have won just two of their last nine league games, and away from home, they have won just two of their last 13 matches.

A home win looks on the cards but don't expect fireworks. 

Men to watch & team news 🌟

Ozan Kabak and Marc-Oliver Kempf are expected to return to central defence after they were rested for the goalless draw at Schalke. Daniel Didavi was withdrawn at half-time in Gelsenkirchen, which suggests that he will start, especially when you consider he is by far VfB's most creative asset.

Union had the best defensive record in the league, with just 33 goals conceded in 34 games, and in attack strikers, Sebastian Polter and Sebastian Andersson netted 21 goals between them. Felix Kroos and Manuel Schmiedebach provide the Bundesliga experience in midfield, and left-back Ken Reichel is always a good attacking outlet
