Survival in sight for Ingolstadt and rejuvenated Stuttgart

While FC Ingolstadt 04 and VfB Stuttgart are both seemingly safe in mid-table at present, neither side can afford to take anything for granted going into the season finale and will therefore go all out for victory when they meet on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 15:30CET/14:30GMT).

Ingolstadt have defied the odds throughout their maiden season in the Bundesliga and come into this match on the back of a four-game unbeaten streak. Just eight points away from the coveted 40-point mark deemed enough to avoid relegation, the dogged Bavarian outfit will once again fight tooth and nail for the points on home turf.

They will come up against a side with a similar mindset in Stuttgart, however. The Swabians were bottom of the standings just before Christmas but have been sensational since the turn of the year, with only FC Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund earning more points so far in 2016. Having put five past TSG 1899 Hoffenheim last week, Jürgen Kramny's charges will be full of confidence.
