Betting Tips for the game
Hoffenheim picked up their first success after three consecutive losses, as the team beat Nuremberg 3-1 away from home. This was followed up with a 3-3 draw with Lyon in the Champions League.
Stuttgart woeful campaign continues to hit new lows with the team losing 4-0 against Borussia Dortmund, although many teams would have suffered the same fate. This was the third defeat in four matches for the club, who brought in Markus Weinzierl as the new boss after the loss against Hannover.
The recent game between these two teams took place at the Mercedes Benz Arena back in May. Stuttgart were able to get a 2-0 victory in that match and it was a revenge for Hoffenheim’s 1-0 victory in the reverse game at Rhein Neckar Arena. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Hoffenheim.

Stuttgart are at a price of 5.50 to win the match. However, the team began Markus Weinzierl’s reign in disappointing fashion with a defeat against Dortmund, although it was probably the toughest opponent for Weinzierl at this time. Hoffenheim have home advantage coming into the game and Stuttgart primary focus will be to pick up points at home. Weinzierl’s record against Hoffenheim is not great with only three victories in 10 games against the team. Our preview would go with the win for Hoffenheim.
