Market: Stuttgart win
Odds: 2/5 @ 1xBet
Looking to extend on their remarkable Bundesliga purple patch on Saturday evening, Stuttgart will welcome Werder Bremen to the MHPArena.
Starting with the hosts, while Stuttgart might have found themselves at the heart of a Bundesliga relegation scrap last season, Sebastian Hoeneb’s side are in the midst of a history-making purple patch this time around. Marking their return from November’s international break with another stellar performance as they secured an eye-catching 2-1 victory away at Eintracht Frankfurt, the Reds suddenly sit in pole position to claim a famous Champions League ticket in 2024. Riding what has been a stunning wave of momentum and collecting 27 points from their first 12 Bundesliga appearances, Stuttgart will be smelling the chance to make another statement of intent here. With their iconic flurry underlined by a 2-1 win against German giants Borussia Dortmund prior to the fortnight interval, Saturday’s hosts have also gained a reputation for their continued success on home soil. In fact, along with winning their previous three home fixtures by an aggregate score of 5-1, Stuttgart have lost just a single showdown at the MHPArena so far this season.
As for the visitors, while Werder Bremen might have claimed a crucial 2-0 victory against Union Berlin last month, it appears that was nothing more than a minor boost. Marking their return from November’s international break with a woeful performance on home soil as they slumped to a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen, the River Islanders have secured just one win from any of their previous seven Bundesliga appearances – a run that stems all the way back September 23rd – Ole Werner’s side have come tumbling out the top-half of the table. Likewise, mustering just a single point from any of their last four showdowns on the road, Werder Bremen will be more than aware that they face another huge challenge here. Already shipping 25 Bundesliga strikes this season and gaining a reputation for their extended defensive issues, we are backing what could be an enjoyable home victory on Saturday evening.
