Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After holding Hoffenheim to a goalless draw, Arminia Bielefeld will be looking to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga when they host Stuttgart at their Schuco Arena. Arminia Bielefeld have been impressive at the back of late, and you should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last six league fixtures. Uwe Neuhaus’ troops are likely to rely on their solid defence against Stuttgart, meaning that yet another low-scoring affair is on the horizon.
The likes of Niemann, Prietl, and Voglasmmer are all likely to miss the game through injuries. Die Schwaben, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Borussia M’gladbach in their last league match. Stuttgart have been impressive on the road of late, with the team recording three wins in the previous four away games, and, no doubt, they are capable of grabbing something from the Arminia game. Thommy, Mola, Egloff, Awoudja, and Al Ghaddioui are all out of contention with injuries.
