VfB Stuttgart vs Karlsruher SC Prediction
VfB Stuttgart stumbled for the fourth team this season after Osnabruck edged past them with a narrow 1-0 scorecard in their last trip on the road. In spite of recording twice as many shots on target as their counterparts in that latter clash, the hosts failed to make any of their efforts count and subsequently made the trip back home empty-handed.
On the other Karlsruher are without a win in their last six second division matchups. The visitors have been sharing the spoils in each of those clashes, with their most recent one being a 1-1 draw against Aue at home. Alois Schwartz’s men have now come out on top just once in their last nine games, garnering no more than nine points from a possible twenty-seven.
To pile on even misery, the visitors are without a win in their previous six outings in the 2.Bundesliga. Meanwhile, Stuttgart are back on the winning track at home and have emerged victoriously in three of their last five home games.
Taking into account that the hosts have been securing the bragging rights in each of their last three h2h matchups here too, Karlsruher’s chances of salvaging even a point are looking bleak this weekend.
Furthermore, Stuttgart have not looked solid at the back and have been deprived of a clean sheet in their past three games here. Given that Karlsruher have racked up five goals from their last two trips on the road alone, expect both teams to contribute to the scoreboards in this one.
