Team News: Stuttgart
Thomas Kastanaras (Metatarsal Fracture), Laurin Ulrich (Surgery) and Nikolas Nartey (Cartilage Damage) are not available for Stuttgart manager Sebastian Hoeneß.
It looks as if Stuttgart look set to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, utilising Alexander Nuebel, Pascal Stenzel, Waldemar Anton, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Hiroki Ito, Atakan Karazor, Angelo Stiller, Silas Katompa Mvumpa, Enzo Millot, Chris Fuehrich and Serhou Guirassy.
Team News: Darmstadt
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Darmstadt manager Torsten Lieberknecht to contend with. Oscar Vilhelmsson (Ill) won’t be in action. Matej Maglica cannot play in this game through suspension.
There’s a good chance that Darmstadt seem most likely to utilise a 3-5-2 system using Marcel Schuhen, Christoph Klarer, Klaus Gjasula, Thomas Isherwood, Fabian Nuernberger, Marvin Mehlem, Fabian Holland, Tobias Kempe, Emir Karic, Luca Pfeiffer and Tim Skarke.
We believe that Stuttgart will most probably fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they meet Darmstadt, who could well find it tough to score themselves.
Accordingly, we see a fairly comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Stuttgart at full-time.
