Carrying the tag of the surprise package throughout the first half of the domestic campaign, situating themselves just behind the table-toppers Bayer Leverkusen and the reigning champions Bayern Munich, Stuttgart's title dreams have virtually evaporated into thin air after they kicked off the new calendar year in a disheartening manner.

After suffering a beating from Borussia Monchengladbach with a scoreline of 1-3 in their opening match of 2024, an even more painful blow followed for Sebastian Hoeness's squad as they slumped to a tight 0-1 defeat against the lower-ranked Bochum, virtually eliminating them from the title race with an insurmountable 14-point gap behind the league leader.

In a bid to keep their Champions League dreams alive, Die Schwaben face the urgent task of finding a recipe for success, yet the challenge appears daunting at this moment, given the absence of their star striker Serhou Guirassy, who extended his stay at AFCON after progressing to the knockout stage with his national team.

The absence of the Guinean forward, who contributed to half of his team's goals this term (17G, 1A), sparks concern among MHP Arena supporters, vividly portrayed by Stuttgart's failure in all four Bundesliga affairs without Guirassy's presence in the final third, and this disheartening trend may persist this weekend.

In the meantime, RB Leipzig has started the new year of 2024 on an equally dismal note as their Saturday host, falling in a narrow 0-1 defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt before once again disappointing their loyal fans, squandering a two-goal lead to endure a woeful five-goal loss against league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

After Marco Rose missed the chance to be the sole entity to surpass Xabi Alonso's team in any competition this campaign, the Saxon club now desperately needs a victory to shake off the recent string of setbacks and hold on to a spot among the top four, with fifth-placed Dortmund breathing down their necks, trailing by just one point.

However, Die Roten Bullen are smiling their way out of the crisis, considering they have never lost to Stuttgart in their 11 head-to-head clashes, winning nine times thus far, including a 5-1 demolition on matchday two of the Bundesliga earlier this term. The absence of Senegal's goalscoring machine puts the hosts in further trouble, so we reckon RBL are closer to picking up the full three points from Saturday's visit.

RB Leipzig team news

With just three outings this season owing to a significant knee injury, Willi Orban has recently rejoined training sessions with his squad, suggesting that the Hungarian defender could be on the verge of a prompt comeback.

While midfielder Amadou Haidara fulfills his international duties with Mali in the Africa Cup of Nations, head coach Marco Rose will visit Stuttgart without star player Xavi Simons, who remains sidelined after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season in the 2-3 defeat to Leverkusen.
