VfB Stuttgart is currently battling relegation in the Bundesliga, despite their recent 2-2 draw against Champions League Club Frankfurt. The team has slipped down to 16th place in the league table, with only six points earned in their last nine games under coach Bruno Labbadia. This is only one point more than their previous coach, Pellegrino Matarazzo, who was replaced earlier this season.
Labbadia has made some improvements to the team, including increasing their fitness and stamina. Under his leadership, the team has been running an average of six kilometers more each game and increasing their number of sprints. However, they still struggle in basement duels and have a weak offense, scoring only 29 goals this season.
Labbadia recognizes that the team needs to improve defensively and not give up goals so easily. Despite their good defense, they still concede an average of 1.5 goals per game, which is the same as under Matarazzo.
With ten games left in the season, VfB Stuttgart has a chance to work on their weaknesses and ensure that they stay in the league. Their next test will be against Bochum on April 9th. Through hard work and dedication, the team can fight their way out of the relegation battle and finish the season strong.
