Our match prediction:
After a furious start of 2016 in the Bundesliga, the Schwaben have been suffering from a dip in form of recent. Didavi, Rupp and Kostic are doing their part of the job, but the problem lies in the back, since the defense became rather leaky. Such run of results got Stuttgart down to the 12th position in the overall standings, but could move back up if they arrest the negative trend. Sadly, Jurgen Kramny’s side will probably have to wait a little longer for the start of their winning run, since Bayern are coming to town. The Bavarians are on a fourteen-game winning streak against Mercedes-Benz Arena outfit, they did not concede a single goal in their last four matches with Stuttgart, and the prediction is they will achieve their fifteenth victory in a row, especially bearing in mind the fact that Pep Guardiola’s charges cannot afford a slip-up this late in the season.
