After the long World Cup break, VfB Stuttgart wants to ensure that they remain in the league in the remaining 19 games of the season. Is the squad good enough for that? Sven Mislintat spoke in Austin about possible winter transfers.

If you haven’t seen much of this season in the Bundesliga, but watched VfB Stuttgart’s game against 1. FC Köln in Austin on Saturday, you probably won’t understand the discussion. VfB played good and fast football, were already 4-0 up at halftime and deservedly won 4-2 in the end. However, it was just a friendly game. And because VfB are in 16th place in the Bundesliga with 14 points, the question has been debated in recent weeks as to whether the squad is good enough to stay in the league.
