VfB Stuttgart vs Schalke 04 Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

This is a relegation six-pointer to conclude 2018 with both teams very close to the automatic relegation spots. Schalke’s campaign continues to hit new lows with the team losing at home against Bayer Leverkusen while Stuttgart offered very little in the loss against Wolfsburg. Yet, a match at the Mercedes Benz Arena may infuse new life into Stuttgart, who are aiming for a third consecutive league victory at home. Schalke have struggled in away matches and this makes me go with a Stuttgart win – even if Markus Weinzierl’s team have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent.

The match features two teams that have struggled to get going in the offensive area of the pitch. Stuttgart are expected to play much better than they did in the midweek loss against Wolfsburg, while Schalke have been unable to score only three times in eight away games this season. I would pick both teams to score.

Stuttgart win – 11/5
