Preview

VfB Stuttgart host VfL Wolfsburg at the Mercedes Benz Arena on Wednesday in Bundesliga action.

The visitors will be looking to bounce back from two successive defeats, most recently coming at the hands of league leaders Bayern Munich. Stuttgart have also lost their last two Bundesliga fixtures, 2-1 to Union Berlin and 2-3 to Borussia Dortmund in a matter of a week.

Wolfsburg are in a comfortable position in the Bundesliga table, occupying the third place with 54 points from 29 games. Stuttgart, on the other hand, are 10th in the table courtesy of a tally of 39 points from 29 matches.


Stuttgart vs Wolfsburg Head-to-Head

Stuttgart and Wolfsburg have played each other 28 times. Stuttgart have registered wins in 10 of those encounters, while Die Wolfe have prevailed 14 times. Four matches have ended in stalemates.

The last time the two sides met, Josip Brekalo's 49th-minute strike was enough for Wolfsburg to earn three points on the night. The match was littered with yellow cards in the closing stages, and Stuttgart couldn't find the back of the net despite dominating possession.
