RB Leipzig vs Stuttgart
Date: Sunday, 25 April 2021
Kick-Off at 14.30 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig.
Sunday’s clash between Leipzig and Stuttgart will by no means make crucial changes to the Bundesliga standings at the end of the season. Neither of the two sides have a strong imperative going into it.
The lack of competitiveness has caused negative streaks of results for both outfits in the recent weeks.
The hosts gave up the title contest after winning just one of the last four league affairs, while their rivals dropped into bottom half after losing three matches on the trot in the competition.
Die Roten Bullen need just three more points in the remaining four rounds to mathematically secure the top-four finish. They have been surprisingly inactive in the final third in the last two matches, failing to score more than one goal past the likes of Hoffenheim and Koln.
After all, Julian Nagelsmann kept the main focus on the stern defensive line after selling Timo Werner last year. This is why RB Leipzig have the best defensive record in the entire league with only 25 goals allowed in 30 matches.
Leipzig vs Stuttgart Head-to-head
- Stuttgart have really struggled to perform against Die Roten Bullen in a short history of this match-up.
- Die Schwaben lost four and drew one of five meetings with RB Leipzig.
- Stuttgart scored only one goal in five clashes against Die Roten Bullen.
- This term’s game saw Leipzig’s 0-1 victory at Merceds-Benz-Arena.
Leipzig vs Stuttgart Prediction
Leipzig do not have a single player with more than seven goals to his name in this term of Bundesliga. Nevertheless, whoever starts the match in Nagelsmann’s squad should have plenty of room to deliver up front past the super-vulnerable defence of Stuttgart’s.
It is fair to say Die Schwaben are already on the beach as they have nothing to play for until the end of the season.
Stuttgart have thus lost three on the trot in the league, conceding as many as eight goals along the way. They fell 1-3 at home to Champions League hopefuls Wolfsburg on Wednesday evening.
Leipzig will want to raise the team’s spirits with a victory ahead of the DFB Pokal semifinal scheduled against Werder Bremen. We will thus go with the home win to nil as the main betting option at the odds of 2.75.
You can get the same odds for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick.
