VfB Stuttgart vs. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim: Lineups
|Expected formation TSG Hoffenheim||Baumann – Quaresma, Vogt, Nsoki, Angelino – Skov, Geiger, Baumgartner – Kramaric, Bebou, Dabbur|
|VfB Stuttgart lineup||Müller – Anton, Mavropanos, Ito, Nartey – Karazor, Ahamada, Endo, Tiago Tomas, Silas – Guirassy|
Who does Labbadia have in the back four: Nartey or Stenzel?
who bets bruno labadia in the back four? Against Mainz, the VfB coach surprised with Nikolas Nartey instead of Pascal Stenzel. Nartey was playing left-back, so Waldemar Anton moved to the right up the chain. Hiroki Ito and Konstantinos Mavropanos formed the central defense. After a decent performance against the 05ers, it could well be that Labbadia is relying on the same formation in Sinsheim.
Kevin Vogt remains questionable at TSG Hoffenheim
In terms of personnel, it is not yet clear at TSG whether Kevin Vogt is ready for action. The central defender recently suffered muscle problems. If Vogt fails, Ermin Bicakcic or Pavel Kaderabek would be available. Ozan Kabak is out due to a yellow card. Kevin Akpoguma (ankle injury), Jacob Bruun Larsen (groin surgery) and Grischa Prömel (ankle break) are also injured.
