Can Stuttgart produce an away win?

Stuttgart will pull level on points with second-placed Hamburger SV if they collect three points on Monday. The top two in the league earn automatic promotion to the top flight.

The third-placed team goes into a playoff against the team third-from-bottom in the Bundesliga.

Stuttgart are in great form at the moment with a six-match unbeaten streak of form currently going (W3 D3). They have enjoyed a massively successful season on home turf.

They are however, only W2 D5 L3 on their second-tier travels. Stuttgart have failed to win any of their last six road fixtures (D3 L3), drawing each of their last three.

(odds taken 2044 GMT, Sunday 16th January)

Stuttgart have managed to avoid defeat in all but one of their last 15 games against Bochum across all competitions. So that’s a pretty strong record. They earned a 2-1 home success over them in this season’s earlier meeting.

Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings. Stuttgart have been far from defensively sound on their travels, conceding at an average of 1.7 goals per away game.

They have not taken an away clean sheet in any of their last six league away games and have only managed one all season.


Struggling Bochum to offer little resistance

Bochum have lost three of their last four games in the Bundesliga II. They did pick up a win in their last fixture, a 1-0 success at Wehen Wiesbaden.

That was a massive three points for Bochum as it lifted them two points clear of Wehen Wiesbaden, who are now second from bottom.

Bochum started this game two points clear of the drop zone after that success. Their home form for the season reads W3 D6 L2.

They have suffered back to back home losses against Regensburg and Hamburger SV, the latter right up there in the top three alongside Monday night’s opponents Stuttgart.
