Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Schalke will be looking to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the Ruhr derby when they welcome Stuttgart at their Veltins Arena on day 6 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Die Knappen have been struggling in the German top flight ever since the club suffered a financial crisis, and it is no wonder they sit in the penultimate place in the standings ahead of the visit of Stuttgart.
The hosts are desperate to grab something from Friday’s match, and, one thing is for sure, they are going to leave their hearts on the field. Die Schwaben, on the other hand, have been in fine form in the Bundesliga of late. The newcomers are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, and given Schalke’s shaky defence, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visitors.
