Stuttgart : Keeping in mind they are a newly promoted team this season from 2. Bundesliga, Die Jungen Wilden are doing quite well. Though their away form is very poor as they lost all 6 of their on the road fixtures but at home turf they are a different team with 4 wins and just 1 draw from 11 MatchDays. Will they they be able to continue their home form against mighty Dortmund? Only time will tell. Stuttgart in particular need a win to improve their table position as they stand on 12th position with 13 points, scoring 10 and conceding 14. Team news is, Holger Badstuber is back from injury as he trained quite well during the international break and is in contention to start else Hannes Wolf doesn’t have any fresh injury concerns to deal with but he has many players out from his team as Burnic (suspended), Kaminski, Mane, Gentner, Zimmerman, Donis (injuries) all are out.
Possible line up Stuttgart (4-2-3-1) – Zieler; Beck, Pavard, Badstuber, Insua; Ascacibar, Aogo; Akolo, Ginczek, Asano; Terrode.

Dortmund : Something just happened to the Borussens after Jupp Heynckes came to Bayern, looks like funny but it isn’t. With just 1 point from their last 4 Bundesliga outings Dortmund(20pts) will be keen to get a win against Stuttgart and they need it also as the difference from Bayern(26pts) is growing again, 6 point difference already on the top of the table. They might have problems in their team but scoring goals isn’t one of them, with 28 goals they have the highest goal tally in the league and why wouldn’t they have? Bosz’s highline formation is meant for goals. Let’s see if they can score against Stuttgart, the home team conceded just once this season at Mercedes-Benz Arena, tough match for Dortmund isn’t it? Marco Reus (knee) will remain out until February, Lukas Piszczek (knee), Eric Durm (hip), Sebastian Rode (pubic bone) also remain out with injuries. Else Peter Bosz has a full squad to pickfrom.
Possible line up Dortmund (4-3-3) – Bürki; Bartra, Sokratis, Toprak, Schmelzer; Guerreiro, Weigl, Gotze; Yarmolenko, Aubameyang, Philipp.
