Stuttgart and Hamburger SV lock horns at the Mercedes-Benz Arena for the first leg of the Bundesliga relegation playoff on Thursday night. The hosts are heading into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim in their final top flight-match of the campaign last weekend, while the Red Shorts secured a narrow 1-0 win over Sandhausen in the 2. Bundesliga regular season. Die Roten finished at the 16th spot in the Bundesliga standings, having collected 33 points from 34 games, just two points clear of the automatic relegation zone and just a solitary point away from safety. The visitors, meanwhile, secured a third-place finish in the second tier standings, with 66 points to their name, just one point shy of the automatic promotion spot (Top two).

Despite losing just one of their last eight league-games and collecting 13 points in the process, Stuttgart find themselves on the edge of ending their three-year stay in the Bundesliga. Die Roten recorded their seventh top flight victory of the season against mid-table side Mainz (4-1) almost ten days ago thanks to goals from Wataru Endo, Serhou Guirassy, Chris Fuhrich and Tanguy Coulibaly. After that, the Swabians shared the spoils against Hoffenheim last time out courtesy of Tiago Tomas’s 80th-minute equaliser. Meanwhile, the Swabians’s home-record in the league hasn’t been very great, having pocketed just 21 points from a possible 51 at Mercedez-Benz Arena. 

Hamburger SV, on the other hand, are heading into the match on the back of three successive victories, scoring eight goals and conceding just two in the period.  Last Sunday, the Red Shorts got the better of Sandhausen thanks to Jean-Luc Dompe’s lone goal inside the opening three minutes at Hardtwalstadion. It was their 20th second tier victory of the campaign. Die Rothosen finished the regular season with the best away-record, collecting 30 points from their 17 matches on the road. The Red Shorts are aiming to return to the top tier for the first time in five years and will be hoping to avoid last season’s relegation playoff defeat to Hertha Berlin, losing 3-0 on aggregate.
