Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Top of the table meets the very bottom on Saturday afternoon as Stuttgart host Dortmund at Mercedes-Benz-Arena for their eighth round fixture after the international break. Die Schwarzgelben took the most from Bayern Munich’s massive crisis to reach the very top of the Bundesliga ladder with a run of four wins and a draw in last five league games.
The thread includes a phenomenal second-half comeback against Augsburg last weekend. BVB were on the brink of dropping points, but Lucien Favre made the right move by introducing Paco Alcacer from the bench in the second half. This summer’s acquisition responded with a hat-trick, including a huge free-kick goal deep in the stoppage-time to win the match for Borussia.
Dortmund are now three points clear at the top of the standings and they will be looking to keep the splendid form going with another victory against the struggling opposition on Saturday.
Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Head-to-head
- Stuttgart lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into the landmark 100th encounter with Borussia Dortmund.
- Nonetheless, it’s Die Schwarzgelben who dominated this match-up entirely in the most recent period.
- Dortmund won five of last six head to head affairs with Stuttgart.
- At least three goals were scored in all of last ten head to head matches between these two likes.
Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
Stuttgart fell to the rock-bottom of the league ladder by losing 3-1 to fellow strugglers Hannover 96 allowing their rivals snatch their maiden victory of the season. The Reds have huge troubles to keep things tight at the back this term and we feel they might struggle to keep hold of Paco Alcacer, Marco Reus & company here.
Stuttgart shipped three or more goals on three different occasions in last six league matches. Knowing Dortmund notched as many as 15 goals in last three Bundesliga wins, we just have to go with the visitors to bag two or more goals on the occasion at the 1.66 odds as a banker bet. You can obviously back red-hot Paco Alcacer to score anytime at 2.37 as well as BVB to win at 1.75 as alternative options.
