Augsburg frustrated high-flying Wolfsburg to move out of the Bundesliga's relegation zone with a goalless draw in Bavaria.
The hosts made a mockery of the 15 points separating the two sides, although they were unable to find a winning goal against a side who ended the game with 10 men following a red card for defender Dante.
Wolfsburg were a shadow of the side which edged closer to the last 16 in the Champions League in midweek, and could be happy to come away with a point from the Augsburg Arena.
Augsburg piled the pressure on Stuttgart coach Alexander Zorniger with a 4-0 win at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Saturday.
Alexander Esswein struck twice in the space of six minutes as Stuttgart got caught out cold, with the game starting with a 15-minute delay to allow all the fans to get through stiffer security measures to take their seats.
Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker added a third for the visitors 10 minutes before half-time, heading Daniel Baier's cross powerfully past Odisseas Vlachodimos.
Claudio Pizarro scored his first goal in 18 months as Werder Bremen piled the misery on the Bundesliga's bottom club Augsburg with a 2-1 win in Bavaria.
While Augsburg have got their act together in the Europa League, they are still lagging behind in the Bundesliga, where they had - and still have - only one win this season.
Pizarro struck in the 58th minute, turning in Santiago Garcia's cross first time for his 177th Bundesliga strike and his first in his third spell with Bremen.
