VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Betting Tips for the game
Stuttgart were unable to extend their good form against Frankfurt after losing 2-1 before the international break. This was the second defeat in the last three games for the club.
Koln fell to a 2-1 home loss against RB Leipzig and this was the club’s fourth defeat in the last five competitive matches. So far, Peter Stoger has seen his team manage just two goals this season.
The recent game between these two teams was at the RheinEnergieStadion with Stuttgart getting a 3-1 win. Incredibly, Koln were able to get a similar victory in their last visit to the Mercedes Benz Arena. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Stuttgart.
Prediction and betting tip: Stuttgart win at 21/20 with Sportingbet
VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Match odds
Koln have been one of the poorest teams in the division so far, and the club have only managed one point. The away team can be backed at 3/1 for a victory, but we will not choose this selection. The poor start made by Koln has shown no signs of improving, while Stuttgart will have home support behind them. One of the disadvantages for Stuttgart is a weak offence but this is unlikely to help the away team get anything out of the game. Our preview is confident of backing a Stuttgart win at 21/20 with Sportingbet.

VfB Stuttgart vs 1. FC Köln – Correct Score odds
The lack of goals from Stuttgart have been a major factor behind the club struggling to rise up the table. After having scored 50 goals in 34 matches in their previous Bundesliga season, Stuttgart were always going to find this 2017-18 season tough due to the jump in quality from the second division. They are up against a Koln team that has picked up just two goals in seven games, while they have conceded 15 in the process. The opponent’s poor defence is likely to cause a Stuttgart 2-0 win, which is priced at 8/1 with Sky Bet.
