Our football match prediction:
As expected, Stuttgart failed to grab something from Saturday’s football game against last season’s runners-up Leipzig. Die Schwaben have been struggling on the travels this season, but they are tough to beat at home and the newcomers have conceded no more than one goal in four home fixtures. Stuttgart aim to escape the danger zone in the Bundesliga standings and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against Freiburg. Christian Streich’s charges are not regarded as good travelers and seeing that they failed to score in their last three away games in the national championship, we do not believe that they are capable of shocking die Roten at Mercedes-Benz-Arena. It has to be noted that Stuttgart emerged triumphant in four of their last five meetings with Freiburg in the German top flight and we believe that Hannes Wolf’s men are going to record their fourth home win of the season.
