• Frankfurt have won just one of their last 13 Bundesliga games against Stuttgart, a 2-1 victory in October 2010 (D3 L9).
  • In fact, the Eagles are without a home win against VfB for around 13 years. Ever since a 2-1 win in 2000/01, Frankfurt have failed to collect three points at home against Stuttgart in eight attempts (D2 L6).
  • Bayern München (eight winless home games from 1983-90) are the only other side that Frankfurt have suffered the same run against in their Bundesliga history – if they fail to beat Stuttgart this weekend, Eintracht will set a new club record.
  • Eintracht have only had fewer points after 22 Bundesliga games than they do at the moment (22) on five occasions. Stuttgart have never had a lower points-haul at this stage of the season than they do now (19).
  • In each of the four seasons that Frankfurt have been relegated, they have had more points after 22 games than the 22 they have collected so far this campaign (2003/04: 23 points, 1995/96: 25, 2000/01 and 2010/11: both 27).
  • Stuttgart have now lost seven Bundesliga games in a row following their 2-1 defeat to Hertha on the last matchday – they have never lost more in a row (they also lost seven successive matches in 1986/87).
  • VfB have lost their first six games of the calendar year – Hertha were the last side to do that in 2012. Only Hannover have lost more than six games at the start of a calendar year (7, 1986 and 2010).
  • Since the Europa League group stage began, Eintracht have won just two of their 14 Bundesliga games that have come either before or after a Europa League fixture (D6 L6).
  • Frankfurt have clean sheets in each of their last three Bundesliga home games – if they do the same against Stuttgart, Veh's side would equal their 35-year-old club record (four home games without conceding in the Autumn on 1978).
  • Stuttgart haven't kept a clean sheet in their last 15 Bundesliga games (a run they last suffered in 1990), currently the league's longest run of conceding in successive games. The only time VfB have waited longer for a clean sheet was in 1969 (21 games).
