• Gladbach haven't won any of their last seven home games against Stuttgart (D3 L4) – they have only been waiting longer for a home win in the Bundesliga against Leverkusen (22 games). The last time they beat VfB at home in the top flight was in a 2-0 victory on April 30th 2005.
  • Gladbach have won just three of their 31 Bundesliga meetings with Stuttgart since 1995/96 (D11 L17).
  • Stuttgart's 7-0 win against Gladbach in September 2010 is Borussia's joint-heaviest Bundesliga defeat (they also lost 7-0 at home to Bremen in April 1966). Stuttgart have never won by a bigger margin in the top flight (they have won 7-0 on four other occasions).
  • With 32 points and a goal difference of +19, Gladbach sit second in the home table behind only Bayern (40 points) and level on points with Schalke.
  • Stuttgart have collected just one point from their last seven away games – during a 1-1 draw in Bremen on matchday 25.
  • VfB have claimed just eight points since the winter break, a league low. On top of that, only Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg (both 25) have conceded more goals in the second half of the season than Stuttgart (24; including the postponed match against Bayern, it's 26 in 2014).
  • With 27 points and a -13 goal difference after 29 games, VfB are having their second-worst Bundesliga season. The only time their record has been worse at this stage of the season was in their relegation campaign of 1974/75 (also 27 points but a -28 goal difference).
  • Stuttgart have squandered 28 points from winning positions (19 in 2014 alone), a league high by far. The record high since the three-points-per-win system was introduced was set by Schalke: 34 points dropped after taking the lead during the 1999/2000 season.
  • Stuttgart have already kept two clean sheets in five games under Huub Stevens. They only managed two in the 24 games under Labbadia and Schneider this season.
  • Lucien Favre has picked up 1.61 points-per-game on average as Gladbach manager (109 games, 49 wins). Only Hennes Weisweiler (1.74) and Udo Lattek (1.72) can boast a better record (only Gladbach managers with at least two games in charge considered).
