Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
There will be fireworks when Stuttgart and Bochum take on each other in the relegation six-pointer at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Die Schwaben do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team extending their losing run to three matches against Union Berlin, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Both Atakan Karazor and Serhou Guirassy are banned for the match, while Hiroki Ito and Josha Vagnoman are sidelined with injuries.
Thomas Letsch’s charges, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Eintracht Frankfurt, and they managed to get one in style (3-0), but given their poor away record (0-0-4), we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts, who sacked head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo at the weekend. Both Takuma Asano and Paul Grave are injured for the visiting side.
