VfB Stuttgart vs Eintracht Frankfurt
Date: Friday, 2 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Stuttgart made a managerial change in October, but Markus Weinzierl is still failing to turn team’s horrendous fortunes around. Die Schwaben suffered yet another catastrophe last weekend when they fell 4-0 to Hoffenheim away at WISROL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
It was team’s second straight 4-0 loss. They actually made it three defeats on the bounce with a dreadful goal difference of 1-11 in the process. Can Stuttgart rise on Friday evening when they host Eintracht Frankfurt in the first game of the Matchday No 10 at Mercedes-Benz-Arena?
The visitors also failed to impress last time out as they only drew 1-1 away at recently-promoted and struggling Nurnberg. The Eagles can even be lucky to have saved a point at Max-Morlock-Stadion as substitute Sebastian Haller notched the last-gasp stoppage time equalizer on the occasion.
VfB Stuttgart vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Head-to-head
- Stuttgart will rely on the head to head history here given they have a positive record in matches with the Eagles.
- Die Schwaben lad the head to head tie by 12 wins ahead of their 92nd meeting with Eintracht.
- Teams snatched a single win apiece (each home court) in the previous term of Bundesliga.
- Stuttgart won two of last three encounters with the Eagles.
- Both teams scored in 10 of last 11 head to head affairs.
VfB Stuttgart vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
Frankfurt were enjoying an exquisite form before the mentioned draw to Nurnberg. They won six on the trot across competitions and improved to 7th in the Bundesliga ladder. They will have a nice opportunity to return on the winning ways here when they meet the struggling Stuttgart side on Friday.
The away win is well worth backing at 2.50 odds if we know the hosts have been way too easy to break down of late. Stuttgart allowed 11 goals in three subsequent losses in the competition. We thus find value in backing the visitors to bag two or more goals on the evening at the odds of 2.20.
