Surprise at the start of the season in the German championship, Stuttgart suffered its second consecutive defeat, beaten 2-0 on Sunday at Heidenheim, promoted and new to the Bundesliga, a setback concomitant with the absence of Serhou Guirassy .
Stuttgart center forward Serhou Guirassy, scorer of 14 goals in the first eight league games, missed Matchday 9 against Hoffenheim and Matchday 10 against Heidenheim due to a hamstring injury.
These two matches ended in setbacks for Stuttgart. The Swabian club thus stagnates at 21 points, tied on points with Borussia Dortmund with whom it shares 3rd place in the standings (Stuttgart remains ahead on goal difference, 14 against 5).
Stuttgart and Dortmund thus see the duo at the top of the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich, escape with 28 and 26 points respectively. The two clubs have a double meeting in the coming weeks on the lawn of the Neckarstadion in Stuttgart: next week for the 11th day of the championship and at the beginning of December in the round of 16 of the German Cup.
