Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Der BVB are one of the best teams in the league, and are currently placed fourth in the table – which is an underachievement for their standards. They will try their best to catch up to arch-rivals and toppers Bayern Munich, who have a lead of four points.
Lucien Favre’s men are at home, and are overjoyed by the fact that they have secured progression to the Round of 16 in the UCL – and that too as group champions.
Meanwhile, the Swabians are a recently-promoted team to this top flight, and have struggled so far to show any kind of an indication that they belong here.
They have a total of just three wins all through this campaign, and it had come against Mainz, Bremen, and Hertha – some of the weakest teams in the competition.
Moreover, they also have a terrible h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Likely, expect Borussia Dortmund to have the upper hand this Saturday at the Signal Iduna Park.

Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Favre’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Frankfurt. In the meantime, Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road the past game week, against Bremen.
Going on though, Der BVB were unbeaten in nine of their previous eleven overall match-ups, and one of the two losses during the stretch had come against Bayern. At home, they had also scored two or more goals in eight of the last ten appearances.
On the other hand, their opposite number had won just twice since September, and they have a total of just three wins on the road this season – which had come against Mainz, Hertha, and Bremen – some of the worst teams in the German top flight.
Finally, Favre’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue. They have also scored in plenty in these games.
As such, expect a high-scoring Dortmund win this weekend.
