Most recently, a relegation battle was announced in Stuttgart, now the restart against a Champions League participant is pending: VfB Stuttgart meets RB Leipzig on the first matchday. While the Saxons are still waiting for their first win of the season after the Supercup defeat, VfB narrowly beat Dynamo Dresden in the DFB Cup.
Kick-off is on Sunday afternoon at 3.30 p.m. in the Mercedes-Benz Arena. The pay-TV broadcaster DAZN broadcasts the game live.
For a while last season it looked as if VfB Stuttgart would find themselves in the second Bundesliga. Almost as if by a miracle, VfB was able to save itself from relegation and the threat of relegation in May. The new season should now be more positive. Sporting director Sven Mislintat presented a promising striker in Luca Pfeiffer on Tuesday. It remains to be seen whether it will be enough for a debut on the first day of the game.
While VfB Stuttgart had to play in the DFB Cup, RB Leipzig played the Supercup against Bayern and lost 5-3 at home. With the goalscorer Christopher Nkunku recently voted "Germany's footballer of the year" and an outstanding Dani Olmo, there are still two exceptional players who could pose problems for VfB on Sunday.
