Bundesliga club 1. FC Union Berlin travels to their neighbors VfB Stuttgart with the same number of points. The promoted team as well as Union caused surprises on the first eleven match days.
INITIAL SITUATION: While Union wrested 1: 1 from Bayern on Saturday, the promoted Borussia Dortmund outclassed Borussia Dortmund 5: 1 in their stadium. The neighbors in the table with equal points in places six and seven are only separated by one goal in the goal difference. Stuttgart is still without a win in its five home games so far, with three draws and two defeats, Union has already cleared full points twice in five away games and only lost once.
STAFF: The staff worries continue. Sixth Robert Andrich (red card suspension) has to keep watching. Defender Nico Schlotterbeck (thigh injury) and attackers Max Kruse (muscle torn), Anthony Ujah (knee injury) and Joel Pohjanpalo (ankle injury) are also definitely injured. Since the use of creative player Marcus Ingvartsen (upper body injury) is unlikely, Union will run out of players on the offensive. The use of the ex-Stuttgart resident Christian Gentner and defender Florian Hübner (both muscular problems) is also questionable.
