Bottom of the league Stuttgart host league leaders Borussia Dortmund at the Mercedes-Benz Arena at 3:30pm on Saturday in the Bundesliga. The teams go into this match in clear contrast, with the visitors flying high and scoring for fun, whereas the hosts are going through a rough patch at the moment.

Home Team: Stuttgart

Stuttgart had finished in 7th position last season, narrowly missing out on Europa League qualification, despite winning their last game of the season 4-1 at the Allianz Arena against Bayern Munich. At that time, the club was full of optimism heading into this season, but it got off to a wretched start. The team picked up two points from the first possible 15, as well as losing to second division Hansa in the German Cup.

Stuttgart did manage to win their first game of the season on match day 6 though, beating top four contenders, Werder Bremen. Stuttgart were unable to follow that excellent performance with another one though, as they then succumbed to a 3-1 loss at Hannover 96. Mario Gomez, who has recently retired from international football, is their main striker scoring 3 goals from their opening seven matches.

Away Team: Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund are sitting in top spot at the moment, following a great run of goal scoring form, and combined with Bayern Munich’s recent mini crisis. Borussia Dortmund remain undefeated in all competitions this season, despite having to pull off some fantastic comebacks in recent weeks from precarious positions.

The side has had to come from 2-0 down to win at Bayer Leverkusen 4-2, as well as win 4-3 at home to FC Augsburg, from being behind three times in the match. They have won their last 3 Bundesliga matches in a row, scoring 15 goals in the process, mainly thanks to striker Paca Alcacer who was responsible for 5 of them. Many have tipped Borussia Dortmund as the most likely team to win the league if Bayern Munich continue to falter.

Head to Head

Borussia Dortmund usually have the better of their opponents in this fixture, as Stuttgart have only won once since 2010 in 15 meetings. However, there is some crumbs for comfort for Stuttgart supporters as that particular win was in this corresponding fixture from last season. Stuttgart won on that occasion 2-1, but Dortmund avenged them for it a few months later winning 3-0 at the Westfalenstadion.

Since 2012, Dortmund have never had any issue scoring goals against Stuttgart, as they have scored in 10 consecutive games against them, with seven of those fixtures scoring at least three times in the match. There always appears to be goals in this fixture, as there hasn’t been a match that has less than 3 goals in since 2012.

Predictions and Expert Betting Tips

Stuttgart are at 3/1 to get their second victory of the season, whereas Borussia Dortmund are favourites at 5/6 to get a win that would maintain their top spot in the league. The sides haven’t drawn in four years, but if you think that will be the outcome, you can bet on that at 11/4.

Borussia Dortmund are flying at the moment, and have a striker who has scored more in the last 3 weeks than anyone else, so I would tip them to get a 3-1 victory in this match, priced at 12/1. Paco Alcacer for Borussia Dortmund is understandably favourites to open the scoring in this fixture at 4/1. Due to the sheer amount of goals in the history of this match, and given the run of results both sides are on, I expect there to be goals at both ends, so betting on more than 4.5 goals at 10/3 seems a particularly generous bet.
