VfB Stuttgart vs Frankfurt Preview

Relegation battling Stuttgart welcome Frankfurt at the Mercedes-Benz-Areana ahead of their matchup in the DFB Pokal semi-final. The winner will face RB Leipzig, who demolished Freiburg 5-1 to enter the finals of the competition. Stuttgart currently sit 15th, with only goal difference separating themselves and 16th placed Bochum. New manager bounce has certainly impacted Stuttgart in a positive manner since the departure of Bruno Labbadia, with Sebastian Hoeness unbeaten in their last 4 league matches, collecting eight points from a possible 12 – while also emerging victorious over FC Numberg in the quart-finals of the DFB Pokal. The next few days look pivotal for Hoeness and his men as they travel to Berlin to face their relegation rivals this weekend. Stuttgart have not lifted the DFB Pokal for over 25 years and if Hoeness and his men are able to achieve this feat this season along with Bundesliga safety, it will be considered more than a successful season for the German giants. They will hope to have their star striker Guirassy in the lineup from the start, after the loanie was substituted against Monchengladbach on Saturday.

While Frankfurt appear to be on the beach following their recent performances and results in the Bundesliga, Oliver Glasner will surely be aiming at winning silverware in the cup competition – having nothing else to play for in the league. Die Adler have managed just a single win in their last 13 games in all competitions – the victory coming against Union Berlin in the quarter-finals of the DFB Pokal. This league form has led to Frankfurt drop to 9th in the Bundesliga table. Glasner’s men have struggled at both ends of the pitch, with one of the worst defensive records among teams in and around them. However, with a top half finish almost guaranteed, Glasner will be desperate to win his second major trophy at the club, while Frankfurt aim at entering their third German domestic cup final in seven seasons.
