Our football match prediction:
Stuttgart continue to struggle on the travels in the 2017/2018 Bundesliga campaign. Die Schwaben have collected no more than one point on the road from possible 24, but they have been impressive at their Mercedes-Benz-Arena this term. Stuttgart are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home in the German elite division and have yet to suffer a loss in front of home fans this term. Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, are on a nine-game unbeaten run in Bundesliga ahead of Friday’s football game and they played out a 1-1 draw with Borussia Dortmund in their last league fixture. However, it has to be noted that Wendell was sent off in the 41st minute of the match. With only one point separating the two teams in the standings, a close encounter is on the horizon and we predict the two teams will share the spoils at Mercedes-Benz-Arena.
