Full-time: Darmstadt 1-2 Stuttgart

VfB's memorable march towards a top-three finish continues as the visitors dug deep with ten men to see off battling Darmstadt. Serhou Guirassy was on target with his 18th Bundesliga goal of the season before Pascal Stenzel was ordered off for a second bookable offence. Stuttgart needed Mahmoud Dahoud's late strike to ensure victory after Aaron Seydel netted late on.

Waldemar Anton almost scores what would have been a comedy own goal. Stuttgart's captain swiped at a Darmstadt through ball on the edge of the area and looked on in horror as the ball fizzed inches past the post.

Hoeneß's view on Darmstadt

"It'll be an awkward game. Darmstadt are in the midst of a relegation battle. Every game is hugely important. They'll do all they can to make life tough. There are no easy Bundesliga games. But we're backing ourselves to cause Darmstadt problems if we perform well. But only when we're mentally and physically at 100 percent."

Lieberknecht on Stuttgart's Deniz Undav

"Deniz made his professional debut under me at Braunschweig, but only really played for the reserves at Eintracht and scored goals. Deniz has an eye for goal. He's currently on track to become a Germany international. We hope he does. He's also developed really well because he's always believed in himself."

Lieberknecht's view on Stuttgart

"Stuttgart have a lot of players and free spirits in their team, and on the whole a good mix. Their style of play is similar to that of Bayer Leverkusen. We want to win and believe we can win against Stuttgart. We'd be very happy with a point, but would obviously still prefer three. We need a top performance as a team."
