Preview: While it might be stretching it to suggest Saturday’s contest inside Mercedez-Benz Arena is a relegation six-pointer, it cannot be far off from being the truth, as 17th-placed Stuttgart welcome a Gladbach side now within four points of joining them in the Bundesliga relegation zone.

Stuttgart – Swabians sinking without a trace?

It is beginning to look rather desperate. Following up their impressive ninth place finish from last season, on their long-awaited Bundesliga return, was never going to be a straightforward task. However, even their most pessimistic of fans would have expected better than 19 points through 24 games. Only in 2018-19, when they were last relegated at this level, did Stuttgart amass fewer at this stage.

Consequently, the Swabians enter Matchday 25 second-bottom and four points off safety. They are enduring the longest wait for a win in the league at nine matches. Collecting two of a possible 27 points (D2 L7) and scoring a measly six times since a 2-0 triumph away to Wolfsburg prior to Christmas. Home comforts are unlikely to be their saving grace either: they’re winless in five (D2 L3) at Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Key Stat: Having failed to score in five consecutive league games between 11 December and 22 January, Stuttgart would at least find the net in each of their last four to possibly hint at signs of a recovery.


Stuttgart Win & Both To Score



Monchengladbach – Fallible Foals leaking too many goals?

Having dominated proceedings when the sides met earlier on in the season at Borussia-Park, Gladbach will have been disappointed to have only mustered a 1-1 draw after easily winning on xG (GLA 2.53 – 0.21 STU). Those two dropped points are beginning to look all the more costly with every game that passes without a win, slipping to four points above the drop zone on the back of one win in their last six (D2 L3).

Adi Hutter is a manager under immense pressure therefore, despite arriving from Eintracht Frankfurt with a burgeoning reputation. If the Austrian is to avoid becoming the first Foals boss for fifteen years to oversee demotion to the second tier, he must find a way of shoring up a defence which has conceded 34 across the last 12 Bundesliga games – and the third-most of any team away from home (27 in 12 matches).

Key Stat: After a crushing 6-0 loss at Dortmund in their latest away league outing, Gladbach have now won one of the last eight away league games (D3 L5) – though that was against the champions, a 2-1 success against a depleted Bayern Munich.

Stuttgart Vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Advice

Despite getting off 31 shots to their opponents 5 in this season’s reverse meeting, Gladbach were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw as a resilient Stuttgart dug deep and rode their luck to hang on to a slightly fortuitous point. Crucially, that result stretched the Swabians’ unbeaten record in head-to-head Bundesliga matches to four (W2 D2), having taken four points against the Foals last term (2-2 home, 1-2 away).


Stuttgart Vs Borussia Monchengladbach – Key Facts:

  • After a 1-1 draw in October, Stuttgart have gone four Bundesliga games unbeaten versus Gladbach (W2 D2). Although they have failed to win the last two competitive meetings as hosts (2-2 in league, 1-2 in DFB Pokal; both last season).
  • Both these teams would concede on at least two occasions in five of their six previous Bundesliga matches. Moreover, each of the past four league and cup encounters between the sides produced both teams scoring.
  • Neither bring any noteworthy form in Matchday 25. Stuttgart are without a win in nine Bundesliga outings (D2 L7) while Gladbach boast one win in six (D2 L3).


As such, the 3/5 about the Stuttgart Double Chance (win or draw) appeals. Especially as their opponents are toiling on their travels this season, Gladbach winning three of 12 away league games thus far – all whilst allowing the third-most goals (2.25 per game). Alternatively, simply plump for goals. Both these teams have conceded at least twice in five of their past six Bundesliga contests and are unlikely to keep things tight.
