German Bundesliga Betting at Bet365


Stuttgart – Matarazzo’s men a weaker proposition on home soil?

If Die Schwaben (W5 D6 L4) were in something of a rut beforehand, having taken one point from their three previous Bundesliga encounters with Union Berlin (1-1), Wolfsburg (1-0) and RB Leipzig (0-1), it certainly didn’t show in their performance last weekend at FC Augsburg’s WWK Arena. A 4-1 victory ensuring a swift and emphatic return to winning ways for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s promoted charges.

That made it five wins for the season since earning automatic promotion at the end of 2019/20, all coming away from home. They are still looking for their first three points at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, despite having had seven bites at the cherry (D4 L3), with their figures in all the main metrics – goals scored (9), goals conceded (13) and points gained (4) – lagging behind those on the road (21, 9 and 17).

Yet Stuttgart have remained competitive at home throughout. Both of the current top two, Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, have been and gone, departing with 3-1 and 1-0 victories respectively, while the high-flying duo of Leverkusen and Union Berlin were forced to settle for a share of the points. Meanwhile, the last time they had as many as 30 goals after 15 games was more than 20 years ago (also 30 in 1997/98).


Gladbach Win & Both To Score



Monchengladbach – Bayern scalp continued excellent start to New Year?

The Foals (W6 D6 L3) were the toast of Germany last time out, clawing back a 2-0 deficit against record champions Bayern Munich that would have seemed insurmountable for most other teams in their position to inflict a 3-2 defeat on the league leaders. Their man of the moment, 28-year-old midfielder Jonas Hofmann, had a hand in all three goals, netting twice past Manuel Neuer while laying on the other for Florian Neuhaus.

It all means that Gladbach boast a perfect record in 2021, their two wins from as many games one more than they could muster from their final seven league encounters (W1 D4 L2) of 2020 – a year which seen them first qualify for the Champions League before sealing progression through to the final sixteen from the toughest group. A competition they have work to do in order to qualify for again.

That previously mentioned lull has cost them vital ground in the top four race. Gladbach head to Stuttgart, whom they have not beaten on the road in their last two attempts, four points worse off than Dortmund in fourth. Their away record is also that of a mid-table outfit (W3 D2 L2), with their sole away victory across the last four coming against the other promoted side (1-0 vs Arminia Bielefeld).

Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach Betting Advice

Gladbach have not exactly thrived on their recent trips to the Mercedes-Benz Arena, losing by a solitary goal on each of the past two Bundesliga visits. However, prior this The Foals had won four of the previous five meetings away to Stuttgart, who are hardly in prime shape to make it a hat-trick of triumphs in this fixture. The Swabians are one of three teams yet to win at home in the Bundesliga in 2020/21.


Stuttgart Vs Borussia Monchengladbach – Key Facts:

  • Four of the 21 points Stuttgart have earned this season have come in away matches, with The Swabians among three Bundesliga teams without a win at home in 2020/21 (D4 L3).
  • Gladbach have won both league games since the turn of the year, more than they managed across their final seven games of 2020 in the competition (W1 D4 L2).
  • Each of the last two Bundesliga meetings here in Stuttgart have ended in a win for the hosts (1-0 both times); however, Gladbach had won the previous three on the spin.


Goals seem a formality, with both these teams returning 80 per cent strike rates when it comes to both sides finding the back of the net in their league games this term. Unfortunately for us, bookmakers agree (both teams to score is a best price 1/2 with Bet365). Instead, opt for four or more goals. That bet has landed in four of Stuttgart’s seven home matches and all but one of Gladbach’s six away.
