In this week’s free VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach preview and betting guide, we analyse an exciting Bundesliga fixture between a club with real relegation worries and a side in the hunt for Champions League qualification. With so much still to play for in what looks a really open German league season, both teams will be desperate to secure the points next week.
Die Roten are keeping their necks just above water at the moment, though having lost six of their last seven matches prior to today’s VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach betting tips, you’d have to ask how? Another defeat next week could see them finally descend into the drop zone and Coach Tayfun Korkut will understandably be fearing the worst. VfB Stuttgart can look to a decent home record for positivity, however, they have lost just three of their ten league matches at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in 2017/18.
Borussia Monchengladbach are straining to find some consistency and their performances since December have been up and down to say the least. The results in their last four fixtures are a perfect example of that inconsistency – Die Fohlen won two and lost two of that particular quartet of Bundesliga contests. Dieter Hecking’s men are still within touching distance of the Champions League qualification places, though they will need to stop dropping silly points to have any chance of getting there. Read below for our free German football predictions.
The head-to-head historical record in the fixture analysed for today’s VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach bets shows us that the away side have heavily dominated this contest over the past few years. Die Fohlen have beaten their counterparts in each of their last five meetings with them since 2015.
A second-half brace from striker Raffael helped to ensure a win for Gladbach when the sides played at the Borussia-Park Stadium on September 19th of last year, and though that result and aforementioned positive record in this fixture make Gladbach our favourites to win next week, Stuttgart’s impressive home record muddies the water a little.
Die Roten are ranked as the 6th best team in the Bundesliga when playing at home. They may be sitting just one place outside the relegation zone, but they have lost just three of their ten fixtures at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Having evaluated that information, we are advising you take the “Gladbach win/draw no bet” option, which will return your stake if the match ends level. Sunbets have the best priced Bundesliga football betting odds for our first pick, so we recommend betting with them.
Die Roten’s lack of cutting edge in forward areas had a major effect on today’s VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach predictions. Tayfun Korkut’s men have failed to register a goal in five of their last seven outings. In three of their last four matches on home soil, they also failed to find the net.
It’s worth pointing out that only bottom club Koln have scored fewer goals in total than Die Schwaben in 2017/18. As we explained above, their overall record at home has been good this term, but it’s also important to note that they have scored just ten times in their ten home fixtures, averaging just one goal per game.
For Gladbach, things have been slightly more positive in front of goal, though four of their last six matches all finished with under 2.5 goals scored. Alarmingly, Dieter Hecking’s attackers have failed to score in three of their last four Bundesliga away contests. With such paltry figures being posted by both clubs, we shouldn’t expect the goals to fly in next week at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Unibet’s odds of evens for there to be under 2.5 goals are too good to miss. You won’t find better value elsewhere.
