STUTTGART VS MAINZ. VFL Stuttgart were reasonably unfortunate in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Borussia Dortmund, but the result extended a dreadful run of form for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team. They are now winless in 6 matches, losing the last 4, and have won just 1 of their last 12 games, a run which stretches back to early August, and has left them in the Bundesliga’s relegation playoff place.
STUTTGART VS UNION BERLIN. Stuttgart are a young team that are clearly going places, but Union Berlin should have too much nous for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team on Sunday. The capital club head south on the back of three straight league wins that culminated in a fine 2-0 success over Champions League outfit Wolfsburg and was arguably their most complete performance of the season.
Bodo vs Zalgiris Bodo will look to seal their spot in the Conference League group stages when they take on Zalgiris at their Aspmyra Stadion on Thursday evening. Bodo were on the verge of winning the first leg, but Zalgiris eventually scored the equalizer in the second minute of the stoppage time.
