Stuttgart vs Hertha Berlin
Date: Saturday, 15 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Stuttgart managed to keep it goalless for almost 70 minutes last weekend away at BORUSSIA-PARK before shipping three goals to the second-placed Foals. They are aiming to bounce back on the return to Mercedes-Benz-Arena as Die Schwaben play host to Hertha BSC on Matchday No 15 in Bundesliga this Saturday.
The hosts will be desperate for spoils here being on the brink of the red zone at the moment. They took just 11 points so far in the campaign. They boast league’s weakest attacking record with only 9 goals notched in 14 games so far. They’ve particularly found it tough to create in the final third at home where the team bagged only three goals in seven outing so far.
Bringing such poor record to an end will be quote a big task for the hosts who are up against a rock-solid defense of Hertha’s here.

Stuttgart vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction

Pal Dardai’s men climbed up to 6th in the standings after such streak. They will have a nice opportunity to keep shining here against Stuttgart even though the head to head to head record in away matches with Die Schwaben does not quite promise success.
The Under 2.5 goals FT bet seems to be just the way to go here knowing that both teams played very tight defensive-minded football of late. You can alternatively try with no goals in the first half at 3.25.
