On the eve of the final stretch of the season, the fight for the Champions League places is becoming one of the main topics for most teams in the upper half of the Bundesliga. Stuttgart and Leipzig go hand in hand in 3rd and 4th place respectively, with a difference of only one point. It is extremely important for both teams to take points in face-to-face meetings, given that Borussia Dortmund is breathing down their backs.

Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig Preview 

Stuttgart Preview

Stuttgart did not start the new calendar year too confidently, losing two rounds in a row to Monchengladbach and Bochum. It is significant that the main scorer of the team and one of the main discoveries of this season - Serhou Guirassy, who has already scored 17 goals, which is almost half of all goals scored by the Swabians this season, left for the Africa Cup. Given that the Guinean national team has reached the playoffs, Stuttgart needs to survive without its main striker for at least a few more matches. In this match, Stuttgart will have to prove that the current third position in the championship is not an accident, but a bid for club ambitions at the end of the season.

RB Leipzig Preview

Leipzig, despite the unfortunate recent results - defeats by Leverkusen 3-2 and Eintracht 1-0 - are not so dependent on any specific players. Of course, Marco Rose will miss Javi Simons and, possibly, Willy Orban, but even without these players, the roster of the team in the form of Dani Olmo, Benjamin Šeško, and Loïs Openda allows the coach to approach the match in optimal conditions. Leipzig has never lost to Stuttgart in its history and perhaps this match will return the red bulls to the winning path.

Betting Tips for Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig

Both Teams to Score and Leipzig to Win

Traditionally, the Bundesliga is one of the most exciting European championships, where many goals are scored. The last three head-to-head matches between the teams ended with an exchange of goals, but still Leipzig looks like a more coherent team at the moment and has a better chance of winning. This Stuttgart vs. RB Leipzig tip can be picked at William Hill with the odds of 3.80.

Stuttgart Total Goals Under 1.5

Despite the fact that the match promises to have goals from both sides, there is one important aspect, namely the absence of one of the main sensations of this season - Guirassy. Without their top scorer, Stuttgart is not as impressive with their attacking play. Of course, the Swabians will certainly have moments at Leipzig’s side, but given the absence of the top striker, it is unlikely that Stuttgart will be able to score more than one goal. William Hill gives 1.90 for this Stuttgart vs. RB Leipzig prediction.

Penalty - Yes

Given the intensity of the match and the density of the standings, there is no doubt that there will be a lot of violations in the match. Of interest is the fact that Stuttgart is the most frequent team to receive penalties this season (6 penalties), and Leipzig is in second place with five 11-meter shots. In addition, the referee of the match, Daniel Schlager, awarded 7 penalties for 8 Bundesliga matches that he refereed. Parimatch evaluates these Stuttgart vs. RB Leipzig odds as 2.90.
