History

Top facts

  • Wolfsburg striker Bas Dost has scored seven Bundesliga goals this term, but is yet to find the target away from home.
  • If Stuttgart lose here, their tally of 12 points would be lowest the club has ever had after 17 rounds of matches in the top flight.
  • VfB have conceded 36 goals already this season, more than any other club in the Bundesliga.
  • Wolfsburg have the league’s most toothless attack on the road, having only scored three times on their travels in 2015/16.
  • The Wolves have always scored at least six away goals in the first half of a season, meaning they are on the verge of setting an unwanted club record.
