The Stuttgart has started solid into the season, only the difference between the strong home and the weak away appearances is amazes. Hannes Wolf's team lost all four away games and now in a bottom place in the away table, but they have two wins and a draw in three home games.
But the Stuttgart have to be careful against Koln. From the last seven league matches against Koln the home team lost six games. Compared to the latest 1:2 away match in Frankfurt, Stuttgart all players are available. That defeat can affect their confidence, and the match against Koln may be their only chance to raise moral for future matches. The ex-Cologne (from 2009 to 2011) Simon Terodde has the good chances of a start-lineups.
The Koln have started awful into the season, only one point after seven game days. The main problem with the team is that all the failures are the forward line. Only two goals have been scored at home stadium, but no goal has ever been scored at away. No other team has these results. The team have now been out on the field for eleven games without a win (in this and the previous season). But now is a good opportunity to win. Only against Schalke (43) and Bochum (42) did Köln win more victories in their history than against the Stuttgart (39).
Captain Lehmann is not available against Stuttgart. Hector and Risze are also missing the game.
If Stoger remains despite the failures on the 4-4-2 tactics, Pizarro has good chances of a start-lineups together with Yuya Osako. However the Japanese returned only on Thursday from the national team, so the "freshness" could be missing. Hoger is expected to replace Lehmann in the central midfield.
The recent game between these two teams was at the Rhein Energie Stadion with Stuttgart getting a 3-1 win. Incredibly, Koln were able to get a similar victory in their last visit to the Mercedes Benz Arena. Both sides are eager to win points here and they will play aggressive from the first minute. Both teams play very poorly this season, but Koln has traditionally shown a good game against Stuttgart, and the statistics of the home games in the Mercedes-Benz Arena must also have an impact.
