In Round 8 of the Bundesliga, on Saturday, October 20, the VfL Stuttgart – Borussia Dortmund game will be played. The match will take place on “Mercedes-Benz Arena”, starting at 14:30. The guest band is the only one who did not know defeat this season.
The defeat of the previous round, 1-3 in the move from Hannover, was fatal to Tayfun Korkut. His place was taken to the technical bench by Markus Weinzierl, who had previously prepared Augsburg and Schalke. With only five points accumulated so far, VfL occupies the last position in the Bundesliga, but only one point separates it from the 15th place, the first placed above the relegable places. On his debut, Weinzierl will not be able to count on Divadi, Aogo, Donis, Kempf and Meyer (injured).
On the other hand, Lucien Favre’s band seems to be shooting records. With 23 goals scored in just 7 stages, Borussia has not only the best offensive in the championship, but it is also a club record for this season of the season. Moreover, 9 of these goals were scored by players entering the field from the standings – a record in the Bundesliga after 7 stages. And things do not stop here. With 6 goals scored in 81 minutes, Alcacer has also set a new record in the Bundesliga. Thus, Dortmund seems more than ever able to put an end to Bayern Munich’s supremacy. Akanji, Schmelzer and Toljan are injured and will not be able to evolve.
The last direct confrontation, disputed in April 2018, Borussia imposed a score of 3-0. It was the 5th success in the last six straight games. In all these games at least three goals scored.
