VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction & Match Preview

VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Mercedes-Benz Arena.

Both Stuttgart and Dortmund continue their push for a European spot when they lock horns at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Saturday.

Only 4 points separate the teams at kick-off with Dortmund sitting at 5th with 43 points and Stuttgart at 8th with 39 points.

Last round saw the hosts grab a late goal to see off Werder Bremen and they remain as one of the red hot teams in Bundesliga with 1 defeat coming from their last 7 games. Moreover, the Mercedes-Benz Arena is a fortress after suffering just 3 defeats all season.

On the contrary, Dortmund are on a free fall after failing to win in their last 3 games across all competition. While the Champions League loss to Manchester City is acceptable, the defeats to Frankfurt and draw at Koln means that they are playing way below their usual standards.

Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-head

Stuttgart ran riot at the Signal Iduna Park when they teams met earlier this season by bagging a massive 5-1 win. However, that was only their second win in as many as 18 h2h games across all competitions since 2010.

At this ground, Dortmund won 6 of the last 7 while losing the other. Each of those 7 games at the Mercedes-Benz Arena saw over 2.5 goals.

While both teams have scored in all except 2 games since 2006, that is btts in 11 out of 13.

Stuttgart vs Dortmund Prediction

It has been a tough week for Dortmund and we expect this to continue over the weekend with the important midweek fixture against Manchester City on the cards.

Even though we do not expect a big rotation in the squad for this fixture, the team in yellow and black has been far from convincing in defense. And they always looked under threat while coming against teams that play direct counter attacking football.

As we mentioned earlier, not many teams managed to beat Stuttgart at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, only super performing teams like Bayern and Leipzig managed it since Freiburg surprised them on matchday 1.

Therefore, Vfb to avoid a defeat here is my primary pick and we will back the over 2.5 goals along with for a small price since 10 of Dortmund’s last 11 games across all competitions saw the same.
