Five–time Bundesliga champions Stuttgart are still in a precarious position despite the 2–0 win against Freiburg on Saturday.
Stevens: Under the cosh
Five–time Bundesliga champions Stuttgart are still in a precarious position despite the 2–0 win against Freiburg on Saturday‚ according to manager Huub Stevens.
Stuttgart currently sit 15th in the Bundesliga standings‚ just one place clear of the dreaded relegation zone.
This is compounded by the fact that Hamburg‚ who are in 16th position‚ have accumulated the same number of points (27) as Stuttgart‚ and Stevens is well aware of the task they face.
“These three points are very important in our situation‚ but this victory was just one small step in our current situation‚” said Stevens.
Of Stuttgart′s remaining five matches‚ three are against the top four teams on the Bundesliga standings‚ which isn′t ideal.
The next assignment for the Schwaben is a trip to a motivated Monchengladbach‚ who are trying to secure a spot in Champions League football.
