Leverkusen, however, are still yet to claim their first victory of the campaign, having been held in both of their first two encounters, but may feel confident of taking all three points in their clash with newly-promoted Stuttgart.
However, they bounced back in style in their second outing, beating Mainz by an emphatic 4-1 scoreline in a hectic game that featured a red card for each side.
The scoreline may have flattered Stuttgart somewhat, though, given the score was 2-1 when Mainz were reduced to 10 men, while Stuttgart's red card came in stoppage time.
Despite that, it is an encouraging three points as Pellegrino Matarazzo's side look ahead to the visit of Leverkusen.
Leverkusen finished fifth last season, boasting the fifth-best attacking and defensive records in the division, and proved themselves a solid side.
However, they have been held to draws in each of their last two league games against Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig, respectively, scoring just once in the process.
Perhaps the departures of last season's top scorer - Kai Havertz - and second-highest scorer - Kevin Volland - have blunted them in the attacking third, with new signing Patrik Schick yet to find his first league goal.
Head coach Peter Bosz will have to address his side's attacking issues swiftly, or risk regressing from last season and slipping out of the European places.

Stuttgart manager Matarazzo finds himself in the middle of a selection crisis, with seven players unavailable for the visit of Leverkusen on Saturday.
Leverkusen head coach Bosz, on the other hand, has just one long-term injury to deal with.
Young Brazilian winger Paulinho is still recovering from an ACL injury and is projected to return in February next year, but will likely be eased in slowly from that point.
Stuttgart possible starting lineup:
Kobel; Kempf, Anton, Kaminski; Endo; Wamangituka, Sosa, Mangala, Castro; Didavi, Kalajdzic
Bayer Leverkusen possible starting lineup:
Hradecky; L. Bender, S. Bender, Tapsoba, Sinkgraven; Aranguiz; Bellarabi, Wirtz, Demirbay, Diaby; Schick
We say: Stuttgart 0-1 Bayer Leverkusen
Leverkusen should have enough quality to edge past their newly-promoted opponents, but given their lack of cutting edge in the final third lately, it could be a low-scoring win.
