• The two sides have met 36 times in the Bundesliga, as well as in two German Cup matches. Stuttgart have won 17 of the 38 meetings in competitive matches (D8, L13).
  • The last five games between these two teams have all ended in a home win. The last meeting was in August 1985 and ended in a 6-3 win for Stuttgart (German Cup first round), with the last Bundesliga encounter coming in February of the same year (a 3-1 win for Braunschweig).
  • Braunschweig have made their worst start to a Bundesliga campaign by picking up just one point (in previous campaigns they always had at least three points after six games when adjusted to the three-points-per-win system).
  • Eintracht have failed to win any of their last 10 competitive matches (D3, L7). Their last victory, which ensured their promotion, was a 1-0 win over Ingolstadt on April 26th.
  • Braunschweig have the worst attack in the league with just three goals scored. The promoted side's chance-conversion rate (5%) and number of clear-cut chances (3) are also the worst in the league by some way.
  • Stuttgart scored their fifth goal from a set-piece against Eintracht Frankfurt on matchday 5, the highest amount in the league together with Hamburger SV.
  • Thomas Schneider is still unbeaten in the Bundesliga as VfB manager after three games in charge (W2, D1). The last new Stuttgart manager to achieve that was Markus Babbel in 2008.
  • Thanks to his equaliser against Frankfurt, Timo Werner became the third-youngest goalscorer in Bundesliga history at 17 years and 200 days old; only Nuri Sahin (Dortmund) and Julian Draxler (Schalke) were younger when they scored their first Bundesliga goal.
  • Braunschweig players Marco Caligiuri (2000-07) and Ermin Bicakcic (2005-11) are former Stuttgart players, moving to VfB at the ages of 16 and 15 respectively.
