VfB Stuttgart is welcoming RB Leipzig to Mercedes Benz Arena in round 14 in the German Bundesliga.
Stuttgart keeps playing well this season on both ends, and thanks to that they are in high 7th place with 18 points, 26 scored goals, and 20 conceded goals, on the brink of the Europa League. Stuttgart has lost only 2 of their last 15 games, and they have scored at least 1 goal in 12 of their 13 Bundesliga games. In their latest Bundesliga game, Stuttgart was playing against Wolfsburg on the road, and they were a slightly better team with 53% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. Stuttgart was defending well, and they have created a few good chances, but they weren’t able to score a goal. In the 49th minute, Stuttgart has conceded a goal, and they ended up losing this game 1-0. Wamangituka is the leading goalscorer with 7 goals and 3 assists, while Kalajdzic added 5 goals and 3 assists. Thommy, Awoudja, and Al Ghaddioui are all injured for Stuttgart. Game after game, Stuttgart is proving to be a dangerous team that can score a lot of goals, and I really hope they can keep it up because I love seeing the underdog doing a good job.
Leipzig is a fantastic team, and they are in third place in the Bundesliga table with 28 points, 24 scored goals, and only 9 conceded goals which makes them the best defensive team in Bundesliga. Leipzig hasn’t lost any of their last 8 games, and they have scored 18 goals during that stretch while conceding 9 goals. Poulsen and Angelino have each scored 4 goals and added 2 assists for Leipzig so far this season, while Sabitzer and Forsberg have added 3 goals each. Dani Olmo has 4 assists. Laimer, Henrichs, and Konate are all injured for Leipzig at the moment. Leipzig has also advanced to the next stage in the Champions League, and they will face Liverpool at home in the first leg. In their latest Bundesliga game, Leipzig was hosting Koln, and they were the dominant team with 64% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. Leipzig was creating chance after chance, but they couldn’t find a way to the net, and this game ended in a 0-0 draw. Overall, Leipzig is the best team in Bundesliga so far, and they are only 2 points away from the top, but they will need to keep winning big games, and they can’t be distracted by the Champions League if they want to win Bundesliga.
Stuttgart is actually playing better soccer on the road this season, and they are still without a win this season. Stuttgart has never beaten Leipzig in the past, and Leipzig hasn’t lost any of their last 8 games. We are getting the better team at a great price, and that is Leipzig on the road, and I will take it.
Pick: RB Leipzig
