Without fail

Eintracht Frankfurt will travel to Stuttgart with four away points. At Hertha BSC, the Hessians got a point (1:1) – at Bremen they won 4:3. VfB have only lost one game this season, but they haven’t won a single one. The last thing is one defeat at home against SC Freiburg and five draws. VfB came back from behind three times (1-1 against Leipzig and 2-2 in Bremen and Munich).

objective bond

Away and home, VfB have not scored more goals against Eintracht Frankfurt (179 goals in total – 106 of them at home). The same applies to the visitors from Hesse: SGE have also scored the most Bundesliga goals against VfB so far (167). The two teams have kept a clean sheet in their last 40 Bundesliga matches. The last zero in Stuttgart was 57 years ago.

Dead balls and running distance

While VfB have yet to concede a regular goal, Eintracht Frankfurt have already done so five times this season. Only VfL Bochum have conceded more goals from set pieces than SGE. In the number of sprints, Eintracht (1460 sprints) can only hold a candle to Borussia Dortmund (1544). With 1347 runs, VfB is in seventh place in these statistics.


Frankfurt reserve goalkeepers Jens Grahl and Diant Ramaj come from the VfB youth team. Jens Grahl returned to Stuttgart in 2016 after playing with Stuttgarter Kickers, Greuther Fürth, TSG Hoffenheim and SC Paderborn. In the summer of 2021 he moved from Neckar to Main as a substitute guard. He was not used in competitive games at VfB. SGE centre-back Jérôme Onguéné wore the bib jersey twice in March and April 2017 for VfB’s second representation in the Regionalliga Südwest.
