Stuttgart vs Wolfsburg
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz-Arena (Stuttgart).
Wolfsburg came on the brink of the top-six finish with two subsequent wins over Hoffenheim and Nurnberg in last two rounds. They are now just two points shy of fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt (who have an away fixture against leaders Bayern Munich upcoming in the last round).
There are no doubts the Wolves will be highly motivated to finish the campaign with two straight wins over the likes of Stuttgart and Augsburg. Such scenario could even grant them a place in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Bruno Labbadia’s men notched six goals in last two wins and they should have a nice chance to keep such stellar attacking form going here against relegation-threatened Stuttgart.
The hosts will likely feature relegation play-offs being seven points shy of Schalke in the safe zone and five points adrift of Nurnberg in the red zone.
Stuttgart vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head
Teams have 18 victories apiece coming into their 43rd head to head meeting.
Stuttgart were much more successful in home ties against the Wolves (12 wins, 3 draws and only 5 defeats).
Wolfsburg celebrated a 2-0 victory in mid-December last year at VOLKSWAGEN-ARENA and they will go into this unbeaten in last two meetings with Die Schwaben.
Stuttgart vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
The visitors come into this as clear form favourites. Stuttgart won one, drew two and lost five of past eight league matches. They fell 3-1 away at out-of-form and non-motivated Hertha BSC seven days ago.
Stuttgart allowed as many as 27 goals in 16 home outings in this term of Bundesliga and we can hardly see them keep things quiet at the back against free-scoring and highly-motivated Wolfsburg side here.
In spite of the negative head to head record in away matches against Stuttgart, the Wolves are well worth backing to claim the spoils at Mercedes-Benz-Arena at the odds of 2-15 based on everything written above.
