Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munich will be aiming to build on a 3-0 win over Union Berlin when they face Stuttgart in the Bundesliga round 23. The Bavarians quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Borussia M’gladbach, with the team retaining top position, and the bookies see them as hot favourites to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash as well. The league leaders have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Dayot Upamecano is back from suspension, while all Noussair Mazraoui, Manuel Neuer, and Lucas Hernandez remain in the recovery room.
Die Schwaben, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Schalke, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the reigning champions. Croatia international Borna Sosa is banned for the match, while both Serghou Guirassy and Pascal Stenzel miss out with injuries.
