Stuttgart VfB Stuttgart will have to do without defender Marc Oliver Kempf in the home game against Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky).
The use of the 26-year-old, who suffered a thigh injury in the game at FC Augsburg (1: 4) last Sunday, was questionable. As coach Pellegrino Matarazzo announced, Kempf is not available against the bottom of the table in the Bundesliga, just like defender Konstantinos Mavropanos (torn muscle fiber in the pelvic area), offensive man Chris Führich (partial torn ankle ligament) and striker Omar Marmoush (syndrome problems).
Florian Müller’s assignment is still open. “He’s in training. However, he is not yet at 100 percent athletically and energetically, “said Matarazzo about the goalkeeper who has missed the last four competitive games due to a corona infection. “We’ll see if it’s enough for the weekend.” Winger Silas Katompa Mvumpa, who has been missing since mid-March due to a torn cruciate ligament, could make his comeback in the away game against Borussia Dortmund (November 20), according to Matarazzo.
