Hoffenheim vs Stuttgart
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim ended the three-loss streak with a fine display in the 1-3 victory over Nurnberg seven days ago away at Max-Morlock-Stadion. The success climbed them up to 8th in the league ladder. Die Kraichgauer will have a nice chance to make it two wins on the bounce on Saturday evening when they play host to struggling Stuttgart at WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena in the last game of the day.
The visitors will enter the match in a completely opposite mood. They sit second from bottom with just five points from eight games so far in the season. The Reds were particularly easy to break down in last two rounds which saw them ship seven goals in total to Hannover and Dortmund.
Hoffenheim vs Stuttgart: Head-to-head

Teams snatched a single clean sheet wins apiece in their clashes in the previous term of the competition.
Hoffenheim vs Stuttgart: Prediction
Stuttgart took just one point from four away games so far in the season. It’s a bitterly disappointing return if we know they played the likes of Mainz, Freiburg and Hannover in the process. Such a devastating thread caused the chance on the bench as the board decided to part ways with Tayfun Korkut.
Markus Weinzierl is currently in charge, but he made a dreadful debut last weekend when his troops fell 0-4 to Borussia Dortmund at Mercedes-Benz-Arena. Given they’ll be up against one of the most talented attacking lines in the competition, it’s hard to see anything else but another defeat for them here.
Die Kraichgauer notched three goals on again on Tuesday when they drew 3-3 to Lyon in the Champions League. Andrej Kramaric stole the show with a brace and he will be looking to keep the good form going here against the struggling defense of Stuttgart’s. The home win is a banker at 1.57, while you can have the Croatian striker to score anytime at the 2.10 odds.
