After a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Wolfsburg on Matchday 18, Bayern Munich's attempt to get back in the sadde on Matchday 10 was derailed by a 17th minute red card to Jerome Boateng and a 1-1 draw with Schalke 04. Now they head into Matchday 20 against a defensively inept VfB Stuttgart lacking some of their best players.
For all of Bayern Munich's winning ways, Stuttgart have been a sputtering struggling side for much of the last three seasons. Now sitting on just 18 points for the season and staring yet again down the barrels of relegation, Stuttgart will be in desperate need of at least a point from this match.
