VfB Stuttgart ensured they would continue their brilliant run of from by completing a 2-0 home win versus Werder Bremen on Saturday.
In-form striker Deniz Undav opened the score early on by converting a close range chance.
Stuttgart dominated the possession and looked in control the whole game and had chances to score even more.
For Bremen, this result means they slip into 13th position in the Bundesliga and are only two points off the bottom three.
Stuttgart: Will go into January in a top four spot
Stuttgart are heading into their next game against league leaders Bayer Leverkusen off the back of a three game win streak in the Bundesliga.
Despite tough upcoming games, the last game of the calendar year against Augsburg should mean that Stuttgart will find themselves comfortably within the top four come next January.
This is helped by Dortmund and Leipzig playing each other next match day which ensures Stuttgart can afford to drop points whilst staying in the top four.
Werder Bremen: In danger of slipping into the bottom three
Failure to win either of these games could mean Bremen slip into the bottom three as the teams below them are due to play each other in the coming weeks.
In a similar vein, Bremen have not recorded a victory since their game against current bottom of the table Union Berlin in late October.
Also, with games against the bottom five all recorded, Bremen will have to hope to steal points against one of the top-half sides.
Should they fail to win in a further run of games, Bremen will find themselves in a relegation spot before the winter break.
Stuttgart: Deniz Undav has earnt himself a Germany call-up
Against Bremen, Deniz Undav showcased once again why he is a key component to Stuttgart's success this season by netting another goal.
The goal against Bremen brings Undav's tally to five goals in five Bundesliga games which reinstates his incredible form.
This season he has been excellent and has made a strong case with eight goals and an assist for being part of Germany's squad next summer.
Werder Bremen: Will hope strikers regain form for games coming up
With some vital games against Augsburg and Mönchengladbach coming up, Werder Bremen will hope striker Marvin Duksch regains form in front of goal.
Duksch has been a part of a lethal striking partnership with Raffael Santos Borré tallying eleven goal contributions between them.
Last season's form considered, Duksch managed to score nine of his eleven Bundesliga goals last season during the Rückrunde.
Since the departure of Niklas Füllkrug, Bremen have relied on the German international for their goals.
Not just a finisher, Marvin Duksch also sits as the top assist maker for the Green-Whites this season with three assists in the Bundesliga.
