Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
All eyes will be on Allianz Arena when Bayern Munich and Stuttgart square off against each other in the Bundesliga derby. The Bavarians suffered an embarrassing 5-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend and, no doubt, Thomas Tuchel is under big pressure ahead of Sunday’s showdown. Fit-again midfielder Jamal Musiala is pushing for a start, while Serge Gnabry has joined the likes of Sven Ulreich, Matthijs de Ligt, Bouna Sarr, and Gabriel Marusic in the recovery room.
Die Schwaben, on the other hand, are enjoying a very successful season, with the team eyeing a spot in the Champions League. As Stuttgart have been in a much better form of late than Bayern Munich, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The likes of Luca Raimund, Lilian Egloff, Hiroki Ito, Roberto Massimo, and Nikolas Nartey are injured for the visiting team. In their last meeting at the venue the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
Highlighted Player (Harry Kane):
Widely regarded as one of England’s best strikers at the moment, Harry Kane enjoyed a meteoric rise at Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 Premier League goals during the 2014/2015 campaign to be voted PFA Young Player of the Year.
The highly rated striker went on to surpass that achievement the following season as he helped Tottenham Hotspur mount a serious title challenge for the first time in club’s recent history and he made seamless transition to international football. Kane scored four goals in his first ten appearances for England to prove he was here to stay and at the same time established himself as a first choice striker in Roy Hodgson’s squad ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
Kane is a modern striker, who is extremely dangerous in the opposition box, but it was some outstanding goals from distance as well as link-up play with teammates that earned him an excellent reputation in world football. Kane is expected to lead both Tottenham and England in years to come, that is if he can resist the lure of top European clubs that continue to cast admiring glances his way.
