RB Leipzig come into this game on the back of a 1-0 loss to Bo Svensson's Mainz in their most recent Bundesliga game. An early first-half goal from French centre-back Moussa Niakhate ensured victory for Mainz.

Goals from Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, former Mainz midfielder Philipp Klement and attacker Hamadi Al Ghaddioui and a second-half brace from centre-back Marc-Oliver Kempf sealed the deal for Pellegrino Matarazzo's Stuttgart.

Young midfielder Jamie Leweling scored the consolation goal for Greuther Furth late in the second-half.
