Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Stuttgart have continued their brilliant streak last weekend beating the rock-bottomed Koln 2-3 on the rod to make it four wins on the bounce in Bundesliga. The Reds have thus broken into the top half of the league standings as a result and they can now even dream of European competitions next term (something unthinkable at the end of the first half o fthe season).
Nonetheless, the incredible run will be on a serious test on Sunday afternoon when Tayfun Korkut’s men are about to play last year’s runners-up RB Leipzig at Mercedes-Benz-Arena. The visitor are desperate to get the spoils here being three points shy of the top four spots. A defeat here would seriously compromise Ralph Hasenhuttl’s ambitions of securing the Champions League football next term at Red Bull Arena.
Even though Leipzig have had plenty slip-ups over the last couple of weeks, they will come into this with an improved confidence after beating Zenit 2-1 at home in the first leg of their last 16 round tie in Europa League. Bruma and Timo Werner bagged goals for the Bulls. Nonetheless, Hasenhuttl can hardly find reasons for optimism ahead of the trip to Stuttgart given that RB Leipzig have won just one of last seven away matches in Bundesliga.
Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
This will only be the second head to head clash between Stuttgart and RB Leipzig.
The Bulls picked up a narrow 1-0 victory when the two sides met in this term of Bundesliga at Red Bull Arena.
Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
Stuttgart are definitely the form favourite after winning four consecutive league affairs and we’ll back them not to lose at the odds of 1.50.
Alternatively, we’ll take Leipzig to score less than two goals in the match at the same odds since the Reds have been super stern at the back lately keeping three clean sheets in last four league games.
