Weinzierl will be looking to make the most of a home match against a relegation rival, as it gives them a great opportunity to pull away from the automatic relegation spots.

Stuttgart, meanwhile, have lost only once – against Champions League chasing RB Leipzig – in the recent four encounters at the Red Bull Arena. Our preview would go with a win for Stuttgart, who are aiming for a fourth successive victory over this opponent.

First Goalscorer odds
Steven Zuber is the second top scorer at Stuttgart with five goals in 10 matches. He has been a decisive player for Stuttgart since making the loan switch from Hoffenheim in January. The midfielder has been unable to score in his last two games, but he had previously managed six goals in as many games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Steven Zuber.
