Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stuttgart play host to Koln at their Mercedes-Benz Arena on day 21 of the 2022/2023 Bundesliga campaign. Die Schwaben aim to put an end to their three-game losing run, but given their shaky defence, home win should not be considered. Important forward Serhou Guirassy misses out with injury, as well as Tiago Tomas, who has been struggling with an abdominal problem.
The Billy Goats, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, and given Stuttgart’s shaky defence, we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s encounter. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Tunisia international Ellyes Skhiri, who scored a brace at the weekend, whilst Timo Hubers is banned for the match. All Florian Dietz, Sebastian Andersson, Dejan Ljubicic, Luca Kilian, and Davie Selke miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Waldemar Anton):
The Uzbekistan-born central defender plays at the heart of Hannover’s defense. His idol was Roy Maakay, so he started his career as a striker, but he soon turned to defense. Anton Waldemar was a mere teenager when he made his first appearance for Die Roten in February 2016 against VfB Stuttgart.
Waldemar only had to wait for two months to net his first goal against Borussia Monchengladbach. The following season he commanded Hannover’s defense in Bundesliga 2, making 31 appearances, helping his team to return to the top flight immediately after the relegation.
Even though he was born in Olmaliq, Uzbekistan, Waldemar decided to pledge allegiance to Germany, debuting for the U21 squad in September 2016, making 7 appearances so far. The press in Germany compare him to Javi Martinez from Bayern Munich, because Anton Waldemar can play in the heart of defense, as well as a defensive midfielder and a right-back.
