Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart
Date: Saturday, 9 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Sigbal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Borussia Dortmund ruined the splendid work they’ve done in the first half of the season with a dreadful series of results after the winter break. The won only one of past five league affairs and allowed in-form Bayern Munich to move level on points with them at the top of the standings.
The title dream is still alive, but Lucien Favre and his troops now have a mountain to climb to beat the reigning champions in the battle for the throne. Borussia are desperate to find the way out of a crisis which also saw them fall badly in the last 16 round of Champions League. BVB were knocked out by English Tottenham Hotspur 0-4 on aggregate.
Saturday’s home tie with Stuttgart will have a huge importance for the hosts who just can’t afford a mistake.

Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Dortmund fell 2-1 away at relegation threatened Augsburg last Friday. Luckily for Favre, his men are up against one of the weakest travellers in the division. Stuttgart have a dismal away record of 1 win, 2 draws and 9 losses in 12 matches on the road in this term of Bundesliga.
On the other side, we would not be shocked to see the visitors bagging at least a goal here given they notched five in a demolishing victory over Hannover six days ago. Based on everything written above, the Over 2.5 goals FT is a must-take bet at the odds of 1.53. Dortmund to win & BTTS is also a decent option at 2.62.
