Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Mercedes-Benz Arena will host Friday’s Bundesliga game between Stuttgart and Mainz. Die Schwaben suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Arminia Bielefeld and Freiburg in the previous two league fixtures. Stuttgart have been struggling on home soil this term, and they have yet to record a win at their Mercedes-Benz Arena in the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign. The likes of Egloff, Mola, Awoudja, and Al Ghaddioui are all out of contention with injuries.
Die Nullfunfer, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Wolfsburg, with the team shocking Leipzig (3-2) in their last league fixture. The relegation strugglers are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and given Stuttgart’s current form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. Both Brosinski and Kunde Malong are sidelined with injuries.
