Stuttgart are at the Mercedes Benz Arena to host a game against Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday night. Tayfun Korkut’s men picked up their first points of the season during the weekend but they still await their first league win of the 2018-19 Bundesliga campaign. Düsseldorf have done extremely well to pick up four points already in the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Stuttgart were involved in a rollercoaster 3-3 draw with Freiburg away from home. After losing the first two games of the campaign, Korkut will be disappointed to see his team show a lot of spirit in an away match.
Düsseldorf were able to register a first league win since 2013 after beating Hoffenheim 2-1 at home during the weekend. This was the second consecutive result in which Düsseldorf have created a flutter in the Bundesliga after picking up a point against RB Leipzig in the previous match.

Stuttgart came in with a strong performance against Freiburg but there are still several issues within the team. Hence, they are not attract a choice even while playing at home. Fortuna Düsseldorf’s form at the start of the campaign is one of the reasons not to consider a Stuttgart win. The newly promoted outfit have looked impressive – even when pitted against much better teams. After having secured a draw and a win over RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim respectively, Fortuna Düsseldorf have done enough to expect a point from this match.

Stuttgart win odds: 1.65
Fortuna Düsseldorf win odds: 5.50
Correct Score odds
The defensive performances of Stuttgart have been a major let down for Korkut, as he has seen his team already concede seven goals from just three matches. Düsseldorf have been much more compact and disciplined at the back, but they are susceptible to the threat from Mario Gomez. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Historically, meetings between Düsseldorf and Stuttgart have been tight games with little joy for teams in terms of goals. It is explained by the aggregate score of 3-4 over the last four meetings. Even though a lot has changed in the two teams since then, Düsseldorf’s discipline is likely to result in under 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Mario Gomez is back on form after managing a brace against Freiburg. Even at 33 years of age, Gomez has the potential to be a key player for Stuttgart. Our first goalscorer prediction would back the veteran.
