VfB Stuttgart vs Freiburg Match Prediction

By William Hall

Stuttgart welcome Freiburg to the Mercedes Benz Arena this weekend in the Bundesliga. Stuttgart have been struggling of late, picking up just one in their last five matches which has resulted in them dropping down to 14th in the table. Things could get worse for Stuttgart this weekend if they lose to Freiburg as the away team this weekend are just two points behind them in the table. Although Freiburg have lost only once in their last five games, they are still in the danger zone of the Bundesliga as they keep struggling to win matches, drawing four of their previous five. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both sides will be desperate to get a win this weekend, yes to get the three points on the board but to also get the upper hand over an opponent who could be a rival come the end of the season to stay in the league. With Stuttgart picking up the majority of their points at home, I can see them getting a positive result this weekend. Freiburg have been in good form, but away from home, they have been less than impressive getting smashed in four of their last five games. Although I can't see them getting smashed this weekend, I can see them struggling to get the win in a stadium which has been made hard to visit by Stuttgart.

VfB Stuttgart Preview

Stuttgart have been struggling of late, winning just once in their last five Bundesliga games and losing three in that time. However, when playing at the Mercedes Benz Arena, they play their best football and results have shown that with the side unbeaten in four at home, winning three of those. The team's most recent result came in a 1-0 defeat to RB Leipzig which was a game they were expected to come out second best. They did play some very attractive football and made it hard for the home team that day, but they must do that more often if they are going to get away from the bottom three in the Bundesliga.

VfB Stuttgart Team News

Stuttgart have a number of players out this weekend with Carlos Mane (knee injury), Christian Gentner (head injury), Holger Badstuber (thigh injury), Alexander Meyer (thigh injury), Matthias Zimmermann (ACL), Anastasios Donis (shoulder injury) and Marcin Kaminski (ankle injury) all sidelined.

Freiburg Preview

Freiburg have been playing some good football of late, losing just one game in their last five games. However, the lack of wins is starting to take its toll on the side still stuck in the bottom three of the Bundesliga at this stage of the season. Away from home Freiburg, good form have not been existent with our defeats from their last five trips on the road. It's not only been defeats, but they have also been thumped in those games with two 4-1 defeats, one 4-0 defeat and a 5-0 loss. If they are to have any chance to stay in the league come the end of the season, they must start to perform better on the road.

Freiburg Team News

Freiburg will also be without a few this weekend with Amir Abrashi (ankle injury), Onur Bulut (thigh injury), Jonas Meffert (foot injury), Karim Guede (back injury), Manuel Gulde (back injury), Philipp Lienhart (knee injury) and Vincent Sierra (thigh injury) all out.
