Sheff United vs Stuttgart Lineups and Last Match

Sheff United

The Blades convincingly achieved direct promotion back to the top flight last year. They don't have the money to strengthen properly though and United are about to enter the new Premier League season pretty much with the same squad that won them the promotion last term.

The Blades have been pretty blunt so far this summer though. They failed to score in 3 of their last 4 friendlies before beating third-tier Derby 3-1 in their most recent test.

Ben Slimane and Osborne are not 100% fit so not certain if they will be risked.

Predicted Lineup – Davies (GK), Egan, Basham, Robsinon, Baldock, Berge, Fleck, Norwood, Lowe, Brewster & McBurnie

Stuttgart

Stuttgart needed 2 playoff wins vs Hamburger to avoid relegation last season. The late escape seems to have inspired the Swabians though and they won 4 out of 4 friendlies so far. Most of those were against smaller teams though and the only proper test was the last one against Vitesse. Stuttgart won that match 2-1.

Predicted Lineup – Nubel, (GK), Ito, Mavropanos, Karazor, Vagnoman, Endo, Fuhrich, Haraguchi, Nartey, Guirassy & Dias

Starting Lineups

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: George Baldock

United's wing-back Baldock is known for his explosive forward runs. He's the perfect fit for the 3-5-2 formation the Blades use and his crosses constantly carry a threat. Baldock had 7 assists last season and we can see him creating chances in the coming match too.

Baldock is also a potential goalscorer. He has scored at least 1 goal in 5 of the last 6 seasons and already in an early friendly went close when rattling the woodwork.
