Stuttgart vs Bochum
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 15 October 2022
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena
Stuttgart will be hosting visiting rivals Bochum at Mercedes-Benz Arena on Saturday in this Bundeliga fixture.
Stuttgart are a team that usually targets a mid-table finish at the most in the German top flight. They had secured a 15th place finish the last season in the Bundesliga
Going on they have been totally winless in the new campaign. In fact, they are struggling with their offense and defense for quite some time now.
Against any other squad it might have meant something but this weekend they are pitted against none other than The Undescendables.
Bochum had finished 13th in the German topflight the last season. It seems that they have carried this dismal form even into this new campaign.
They are winless so far barring a single fixture and worryingly lost a lion share of their fixtures in this season. The defensive line of Bochum have been letting goals in huge numbers.
It also deserves special mention that no other team in the whole tournament have scored fewer goals than them. Such a slump in the beginning has affected their position and are currently at bottom spot in the league standings.
On top of that they rather have an inferior head to head form against this opponent for the past several years. Thus, expect a victory for the home side Stuttgart on Saturday.
Stuttgart vs Bochum Head-to-head (h2h)
- Bochum is currently on a 7-fixture winless streak against Stuttgart.

- At this venue, the guests are having a 3-decade long winless streak against Stuttgart.
Stuttgart vs Bochum Prediction
In the last five home matches, Stuttgart managed to stay unbeaten in three. This would have been a below average record against any other team, but with their rivals being the worst in the whole competitions, this form is enough to have spirits.
Moreover, Stuttgart possess an exceptional home form against Bochum for the past several decades. Taking into account all these observations, expect a victory for Stuttgart on Saturday.
