Bayern Munich will look to extend their lead at the top of the Bundesliga table to nine points when they travel to in-form Stuttgart on Tuesday evening.
STUTTGART RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Stuttgart are on a bright patch of form in Bundesliga but still remains near the relegation places. They briefly dropped into the relegation playoff spot after Augsburg’s unexpected win at FC Koln on Friday evening. However, after an impressive solid display, which saw Konstantinos Mavropanos and Philipp Forster net for Die Roten, Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men came away with a 2-0 victory over Wolfsburg to leapfrog Augsburg back into 15th place in the Bundesliga table ahead of matchday 16 in midweek. The victory also meant Stuttgart has picked up seven points from the last nine on offer, after previously recording seven points from the 33 available prior to that. The injury list remains long for Head Coach Pellegrino Matarazzo as Enzo Millot, Erik Thommy, Fabian Bredlow, Borna Sosa, Nikolas Nartey, Philipp Klement, and Mohamed Sankoh are ruled out with injuries.
BAYERN MUNICH RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Bayern Munich capitalized on Dortmund’s slip up at VfL Bochum on Saturday to move six points clear at the Bundesliga summit. A poor first-half display against Mainz saw the Bavarians go into halftime behind before Kingsley Coman’s and Jamal Musiala’s second-half goals saw Julian Nagelsmann’s side stumble over the line with a 2-1 comeback victory over Mainz 05 at the Allianz Arena. The three points made it an incredible 20 wins from 24 games across all competitions this season, in what is Nagelsmann’s first campaign in charge since his arrival from RB Leipzig in the summer, with the German tasked with leading the outfit to a 10th-consecutive Bundesliga title. Bayern Munich’s ruthless attack are averaging over three goals per game in the Bundesliga this season. Joshua Kimmich, Josip Stanisic, Bouna Sarr, Marcel Sabitzer, and Choupo-Moting are ruled out with injuries.
