Betting Tips for the game
Stuttgart were at a numerical disadvantage against Hoffenheim for a majority of their recent trip to the Rhein Neckar Arena. Markus Weinzierl fell to his second consecutive 4-0 defeat as a manager since coming to the club.
Frankfurt’s three-game winning streak came to an end after a 1-1 draw with Nuremberg last weekend. It was a game that required a late equaliser from Frankfurt in order to stretch their unbeaten run to 4 matches.
Stuttgart had picked up a 1-0 win over Frankfurt when these two teams last met each other at the Mercedes Benz Arena. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Frankfurt.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Frankfurt win at 2.60[/bet_tip_now]
Stuttgart are given a price of 2.70 to win this match. Yet, we would not pick this choice. Markus Weinzierl has not been helped by the form of the opposition and early red cards. However, it is difficult to see the manager picking up his players after these heavy losses. Frankfurt, meanwhile, will be quite pleased with the manner of the points against Nuremberg, as it appeared that Frankfurt were heading for a defeat. In the recent past, Frankfurt have picked up just one win at the Mercedes Benz Arena in five attempts but our preview would go with a win for the away team.

Stuttgart vs Frankfurt draw odds: 3.40
Stuttgart win odds: 2.70
Correct Score odds
The form of players like Luka Jovic has put Frankfurt in a very strong position but the likes of Sebastian Haller have once again proven that they are indispensable. Stuttgart rely heavily on veteran Mario Gomez for goals and the former Bayern Munich forward leads the club’s scoring charts with three league goals. Both clubs have enough defensive lapses to expect a Frankfurt 2-1 win, according to our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The meetings between Frankfurt and Stuttgart at the Mercedes Benz Arena have primarily provided goals at both ends of the pitch. This becomes a greater guarantee for experiencing over 2.5 goals, which is a stronger possibility due to Stuttgart’s poor defensive form.

First Goalscorer odds
Luka Jovic had four shots at goal in the draw with Nuremberg but he failed to score. Yet, the forward attracts interest from top clubs across Europe and he will look to impress as the January transfer window approaches. The 20-year-old has been unable to find the back of the net in his last two games, but our first goalscorer prediction would stick with the seven-goal hero.
