Good Attacking Performance
Werder will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (2). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Leonardo Bittencourt (1), Niclas Fullkrug (1), and Jiri Pavlenka. Werder’s defensive record in the Bundesliga has so far been very weak, with two goals conceded in their last fixtures. This is an issue that Ole Werner urgently needs to address within the dressing room.
Werder may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

With one point, they currently sit eleventh in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 1 draws having drawn one game.
A victory for Stuttgart would put them on 4 points.
Injury and illness have depleted Pellegrino Matarazzo’s Stuttgart and they will likely be missing five key personnel for Saturday’s match.
