RasenBallsport Leipzig vs VfB Stuttgart Match Prediction

By William Hall

RB Leipzig welcome Stuttgart to the Red Bull Arena this weekend in the Bundesliga. Both sides come into this one off the back of wins with RB Leipzig seeing off top of the league Borussia Dortmund away from home as Stuttgart were bagging three points against Cologne on home soil. With both teams looking to maintain this good form they are on, we could be in for a goal-packed fixture this weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

RB Leipzig have looked in great nick over the past few weeks and with them coming up against a Stuttgart side who have been struggling recently, I can only see one winner this weekend. Leipzig are just three points off the league leaders Borussia Dortmund at this stage of the season and will want to keep the pressure on them as deep into the season as possible. This is the first time these two sides have gone head to head is their history meaning there is nothing to go off when it comes to stats when they go against each other. One of the main things that is stopping Stuttgart progressing much further this season is their lack of goals. The side have managed to score just six times in eight games this season which is hurting their chances of picking up points on a regular basis. Stuttgart have always struggled on the road in the Bundesliga, losing all of their last seven scoring just four in that time. I can't see that changing this weekend.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Preview

After RB Leipzig's inconsistent start to the season, it seems like they have found their formula from last season winning three on the bounce including a win over Borussia Dortmund last time out. Borussia Dortmund took an early lead in the game which made it look as if was going to be a long afternoon for the side. However, two goals in the first half and one just after halftime for Leipzig put the game well in their favour. A second goal for Borussia Dortmund and Aubaneyang made the last 25 minutes nervy, but Leipzig defended well and held out for all three points. 21-year-old German striker Timo Werner has taken off from where he left off already scoring five goals in just six games. After scoring 21 goals last season, the pressure is well and truly on the player to be a big part of the squad once again.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Team News

Lukas Klostermann (thigh injury), Fabio Coltorti (muscle injury) and Stefan Ilsanker (toe injury and suspension) will all miss this weekends match for RB Leipzig.

VfB Stuttgart Preview

Stuttgart put an end to three games without a win on the weekend beating struggling Cologne 2-1 on home soil. It wasn't as easy as they may have liked it with a 94th-minute goal giving Stuttgart all three points. If one thing is for sure this weekend if they are to get anything from the game they must play better than they have over the last few weeks otherwise they could find themselves on the wrong end of a thumping. 22-year-old Chadrac Akolo has been the sides biggest threat this season with three goals in six games. He will prove very important to this team throughout the campaign because as it stands, he is their leading man.

VfB Stuttgart Team News

Stuttgart have six absenties for the game with Ailton Ferreira Silva (ankle injury), Anto Grgic (ankle injury), Carlos Mane (knee injury), Christian Gentner (head injury), Matthias Zimmermann (ACL) and Marcin Kaminski (ankle injury) all out.
