Player to watch – Serhou Guirassy

Serhou Guirassy has been warming the bench since his return to the fold from international duty, though he should reclaim his spot up front in the absence of the injured Deniz Undav.

Guirassy to get back among the goals?

Guirassy scored twice against Darmstadt for Stuttgart in September and the striker, who has notched 17 times in the Bundesliga overall this term, should have more opportunities to convert in Saturday’s rematch.
