Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stuttgart and Greuther Furth face each other in a highly-anticipated Bundesliga game at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Die Schwaben kicked off their German Cup campaign with a thrilling 6-0 win over Dynamo, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to pick up all three points from the Bundesliga opener. Keep in mind, though, that all Orel Mangala, Momo Cisse, Lilian Egloff, and Silas Katomba Mvumpa are likely to miss the game through injuries.
The newcomers, on the other hand, are eager to impress on their return to the German top flight. The club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer, but seeing that new signings will need time to adapt to the new surroundings, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the hosts. A man to watch in the away team will be Sweden international Branimir Hrgota, who found the net in the German Cup defeat to Babelsberg.
