VfB Stuttgart vs Hoffenheim
Date: 27 May 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
VfB Stuttgart will be searching for salvation points on the final day of the season against Hoffenheim who come to visit Mercedes-Benz-Arena on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts have the destiny in their hands. They are currently lock on points with Bochum who hold the relegation playoffs spot but Stuttgart own a much better goal difference, meaning a win here would grant them another top-flight campaign regardless of what Bochum do in their match with Bayer Leverkusen.
Hoffenheim, on the other side, sit three points above these two sides, but they even have a better goal difference than Stuttgart, meaning they are 100% safe going into the final day fixture.
Hoffenheim earned this spot thanks to two wins in the last three rounds. They offered a great attacking display last weekend against Union Berlin, beating them 4-2 in Sinsheim.
Speaking of great attacking performances, what should we say for Stuttgart’s 1-4 drubbing of Mainz six days ago on the road?
Sebastian Hoeness’ men showed fantastic character to bounce back after shipping an early opener and score four unanswered goals to pick up a commanding victory.
VfB Stuttgart are unbeaten in the last three league games in their own backyard despite facing the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Bayer Leverkusen in the process.
