Stuttgart Prediction

Looking at Stuttgart first, and the hosts occupy third from bottom position in the Bundesliga and the relegation play-off spot as they’ve had to endure an eight match sequence without a win in the top division, a run that includes six defeats within this poor period of results.

Defeats to Wolfsburg, Schalke, Mainz 05, Bayern Munich, Fortuna Dusseldorf and RB Leipzig have plunged Stuttgart into relegation danger, but they do have a good chance of ending their drought when second from bottom club, Hannover, pay a visit to their Mercedes-Benz-Arena this Sunday.

Results at home have been sporadic for the hosts as their overall record of 3-2-6 11/23 indicates, but at least there have been goals featuring on a regular basis as 9 of their 11 home matches to date have seen the over 2.5 goals mark achieved.

Forwards Doniz (3 goals) and Gomez (5 goals) represent Stuttgart’s best chances of scoring here this afternoon, while the hosts have managed to keep just two clean sheets at home all season so far.


Key-Facts – Stuttgart v Hannover

  • Stuttgart are without a league win for 8 matches in the Bundesliga
  • 9 of Stuttgart’s 11 home matches have seen over 2.5 goals
  • Hannover have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 away matches


Hannover Prediction

Hannover occupy second from bottom place in the Bundesliga and are two points behind their hosts, Stuttgart, ahead of this crucial relegation battle on Sunday afternoon. Hannover’s recent results have also been poor in recent times as they’ve lost six of their last seven matches and have registered just one league win from their last 12 matches overall in the German top flight.

The theme continues away from home as Hannover have still yet to record an away win this season amidst a poor record of 0-4-7 11/29 with just stalemates gained at Werder Bremen, Bayer Leverkusen, Mainz 05 and Freiburg to show for their troubles on the road this term.

Goals have also featured though despite the visitors’ poor results on their travels with 7 of their 11 away matches resulting in over 2.5 goals, and with the likes of Wood and Bebu (3 goals apiece) in attack, as well as failing to keep a clean sheet away from home all season, we should see further goals scored in this encounter.

Indeed, Hannover have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 away matches also.

Betting Tips Verdict

Both Stuttgart and Hannover have had a tough time of it in recent weeks, but both will fancy their chances of claiming a rare win here today. Goals should also feature here too.
