VfB Stuttgart are handed a perfect chance to move back to the top of the league table as their title rivals Hannover and Braunschweig lost their respective matches this weekend. The three teams are locked on 35 points and Stuttgart sit at third in the table. They just got to winning ways after suffering back-to-back defeats.

Dusseldorf on the other hand are in all kinds of trouble after failing to win in their last five league games. The team was among the contenders for a promotion spot, but they it looks impossible as they are dropped to 10th in the league table. Dusseldorf’s recent problems owes much to a poor attacking unit. They haven’t scored in any of their last four matches.
