Bundesliga, 19th matchday
VfB Stuttgart – SV Werder Bremen

Bundesliga club Werder Bremen are traveling to the away game on Sunday (3.30 p.m. / DAZN) at VfB Stuttgart with some personnel worries. Mitchell Weiser, who has been outstanding since the start of the season, is missing from the Swabian team because of his yellow card suspension.
Coach Ole Werner left open who would replace the right-back. The most likely variant with Jean-Manuel Mbom as a substitute is dropped because of his calf problems. Felix Agu is missing in the long term anyway. “We still have options,” said the coach: “If there’s one good thing about the whole thing, it’s that we might be a little smarter than our opponents.”
Winter signing Maximilian Philipp will also be absent. The attacker, who was loaned out by VfL Wolfsburg, twisted his ankle in training.
The Werder coach warned against underestimating Stuttgart, who are in the bottom of the table. “I think they didn’t get enough points for the performance they showed,” said Werner about the Stuttgart team. “This is a team that’s in good shape at the moment. But so are we.”
