Stuttgart vs Leipzig: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Stuttgart are unable to record a victory in three consecutive matches, but will Leipzig be able to get advantage out of the opponent's poor form on January 15? The answer is in our prediction.
Stuttgart are having a weak season - Pellegrino Matarazzo's team is currently fighting relegation. After 18 rounds of Bundesliga The Swabians are at the 15th spot of the standings with 18 points in their asset, tied with Augsburg, who is in the relegation zone, hosts are ranked higher only on tiebreakers.
In the most recent match Stuttgart played a goalless draw against Greuther Furth, extending the winless streak to three matches.
Leipzig completely failed the first half of the season - Domenico Tedesco's team is currently 9th in Bundesliga standings. Bulls still have a chance to finish at the Champions League zone - they are only five points adrift from the 4th placed Freiburg. In the most recent match Leipzig recorded a 4:1 victory over Mainz, a first one for them in three most recent games.
Leipzig recorded two most recent victories with that score
In four most recent head-to-head matches this bet was successful
In each of seven most recent matches Leipzig conceded in the second half
Stuttgart are in a poor form, this is a disastrous season for them - Swabians even failed to beat the bottom team of the league, Greuther Furth, in the previous round. Leipzig should be able to get advantage of that, team is fighting for the Champions League spot. Bulls are in a great form, so they should be able to get all three points today.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) on Leipzig
Leipzig usually play offensively, so we are expecting another aggressive performance from them, because they need a victory. Stuttgart's defensive line is far from perfect, so we don't think that the hosts will keep a clean sheet, but Swabians also should be able to score a consolation goal in a home match against the favourite.
Our second bet is on both teams to score
