Unlike the fixture against Borussia Dortmund, VfB Stuttgart and FC Bayern Munich's fixture goes back all the way to the 1929/1930 season. The two sides first met in the Süddeutche Meisterschaft that year, with both teams finishing mid-table and unable to advance to the Endrunde. They met twice again in the 1931/32 season, the year that Bayern won their first ever trophy, the Deutsche Meisterschaft.

When the Oberliga came into existence in 1945, both teams were grouped into the Süddeutschland region, where they met 34 times. VfB Stuttgart won the Oberliga Süd three times over the 17 seasons before the Bundesliga, while FC Bayern only made it as high as third. (Full data from the Oberliga years are impossible to find; only final table data are available).

Since then, to say that Bayern dominated Stuttgart is an understatement. What's more is that they have seen a lot of each other; Saturday will be the fourth meeting in the DFB Pokal in the last five years. The two clubs have also shared some big names as well: Jürgen Klinnsmann, Giovane Elber, and Mario Gomez just to name a few.
