Wolfsburg vs Stuttgart: Preview

Wolfsburg form analysis

Die Wölfe has struggled to pick up wins in recent Bundesliga matches. On January 27th, they drew FC Cologne 1-1 after conceding early but equalizing through K. Paredes. Against Hoffenheim on February 4th, Wolfsburg gave up leads of 1-0 and 2-1 to finish with a 2-2 draw despite a brace from L. Majer. Things did not improve on February 10th with a 1-0 loss to Union Berlin after allowing a goal to D. Doekhi. Their scoring struggles continued on February 17th in a 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund, requiring a 63rd minute equalizer from Y. Gerhardt to salvage the point after going down early.

Most recently on the 25th, Wolfsburg drew Eintracht Frankfurt 2-2 in a back and forth game that saw them take an early lead but then have to come from behind with an equalizer in added time from Omar Marmoush. Overall, Wolfsburg has struggled to maintain leads or hold down deficits when they concede first. Their offense has lacked consistency as evidenced by scoring multiple goals only once in this run of games. Shoring up defensive concentration and discipline for a full 90 minutes could allow their offense to translate scoring chances into tighter results going forward. Converting more of the limited chances they create could also pick up the goal scoring.

Stuttgart form analysis

Stuttgart has found strong goal scoring form in recent Bundesliga matches. On January 27th, they beat RB Leipzig 5-2 in a dominant attacking display, getting goals from five different players including a brace from D. Undav. They followed that up with another multi-goal performance to beat Freiburg 1-3 on February 3rd thanks to scores from D. Undav, C. Führich, and M. Mittelstädt. Stuttgart continued their scoring prowess with a 3-1 home win over Mainz on February 11th, again getting goals from three different players. On the 17th, their offense was contained more but they still managed to edge past Darmstadt 1-2 on goals from S. Guirassy and M. Dahoud. Most recently against FC Cologne, Stuttgart had to settle for a 1-1 draw on February 24th despite dominating chances, requiring a 53rd minute goal from E. Millot to equalize after conceding early.

Overall, Stuttgart has found ways to score goals from across their attack recently. They have tallied an impressive 14 goals over this five game span. Maintaining that scoring form could help cover for defensive vulnerabilities that have seen them concede multiple goals in three straight matches. Continuing to convert chances and limit defensive mistakes will be key for Stuttgart to turn around results and move up the Bundesliga table.
