Borussia Dortmund are desperate to get back to winning ways when they take on Stuttgart at the Signal Iduna Park this weekend. Dortmund are only ahead of Bayern Munich on goal difference as an incredible lead over with the defending champions has all but vanished in the last few weeks. Meanwhile, Stuttgart remain in relegation trouble with the team stuck in the bottom three places for quite a while. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Borussia Dortmund now have just the league to concentrate on after an exit from the Champions League in the midweek action. A 1-0 defeat against Spurs led to a 4-0 aggregate defeat for Dortmund, who lost 2-1 against Augsburg during the weekend.
Stuttgart were able to make the most of a six-pointer at home by getting a 5-1 success over Hannover last weekend. This was the first win for Stuttgart in 2019.
The reverse fixture witnessed Dortmund ripping apart Stuttgart with a 4-0 score at the Mercedes Benz Arena. The last meeting between these two clubs at the Signal Iduna Park just under a year ago when the hosts enjoyed a 3-0 home win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Borussia Dortmund.

Stuttgart enter into the match on the back of a huge sigh of relief, as the win over Hannover has given hope about avoiding relegation. The club are now just two points away from catching Augsburg in the safety places. Borussia Dortmund have experienced a major setback in the title race with the defeat against Augsburg allowing Bayern Munich to move level on points. Dortmund could potentially fall to the second spot by the end of this weekend, but manager Lucien Favre will be keen to avoid such a situation. Our preview would pick a win for Dortmund largely due to the gap in quality between the two teams.

Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart draw odds: 5.50
Stuttgart win odds: 11.00
Correct Score odds
Dortmund have been struggling for form but the team has returned a respectable 13 goals in the last six matches. It is down to players like Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus still providing a decent rate for the team. Even Stuttgart have been able to come up with 10 goals – albeit largely helped by the recent win over Hannover – in the last six games. Our correct score prediction identifies the struggles faced by Stuttgart at the back with the team conceding over two goals on average of late. As a result, a 2-1 win for Dortmund is a great pick.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The plenty of goals conceded by Stuttgart has been a defining factor in the club’s relegation battle the season, while Dortmund have also been slipping fast in the league table owing to a poor defensive. Dortmund have scored 18 goals past Stuttgart in the last six matches and this one is a major factor behind our total goals prediction going with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marco Reus came up with mediocre performances in the last two games, while Paco Alcacer scored the only goal for Dortmund in the loss against Augsburg. This goal has helped the Spaniard move level with Marco Reus, who has 13 league goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Paco Alcacer.
