Our football match prediction:
Stuttgart will be aiming to put an end to their four-match losing run in the Bundesliga when they welcome Hertha at their Mercedes-Benz-Arena. Die Schwaben are eager to escape the danger zone in the Bundesliga standings and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s football match against Pal Dardai’s troops. Stuttgart have been struggling in front of goal of late, but the game against Hertha could be the turning point for the hosts. The capital club, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late and they head into the Mercedes-Benz-Arena clash following back-to-back wins over the likes of Hannover and Leipzig. A close encounter is on the horizon and we predict the two teams are going to share the spoils on Matchday 18. Under 2.5 goals were scored in three of their last four meetings in the Bundesliga and we are about to witness yet another low-scoring affair.
