VfB Stuttgart vs Freiburg
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena (Stuttgart).
The last few seasons have been turbulent for five-time German champions Stuttgart, by being relegated in two of their last three top-flight campaigns in the records. The host will play on the back of a 0-1 win on the road against Rostock in the last match.
The home team will start the new season in Bundesliga with hopes to stay at the top tier itself for the next term too. Meanwhile, Freiburg will visit on the back of a 1-2 win on the road against the likes of Mannheim last time out in the schedule.

VfB Stuttgart vs Freiburg Prediction
Despite being appointed halfway through the last term in 2. Bundesliga, Stuttgart manager Pellegrino Matarazzo still secured promotion in his first campaign for the team.
Stuttgart has failed to score in just two of 18 games with him in charge so far, netting an average of 1.8 goals, whilst seven of the nine victories came with a clean sheet in each.
Even though they are a promoted team in the mix, the host is no stranger to the top tier teams and their style of play based on their past experiences. Mid-table side Freiburg will not pose much threat for the home team, but will not likely settle down without a fight in the ninety minutes.
Despite being winless in their last seven visits in a row, the visitor has still scored at least a goal in five of those seven games in the h2h meetings. That’s why; backing the BTTS in the game seems like a suitable choice as both teams are likely to see the back of the net in the encounter.
Since the tables are likely to turn in between the game with both teams having their own advantage, the safest bet will be a double chance. In case it doesn’t end in a draw, the closest chance for taking the three points will be with Stuttgart. So, the double chance favoring the host will probably be the best bet in the encounter.
