Tip Reasoning

  • Each of the last four H2H meetings produced under 2.5 total goals.
  • Both sides need to win for very different reasons, which may affect the match flow.
  • Four of Stuttgart’s last five league games produced under 2.5 total goals.

A nervy encounter could ensue

With Stuttgart three points shy of safety, they know only a win will do here while also hoping for Hertha to lose in their game with Dortmund. Such a necessity to win often affects the way teams play, and with four of Stuttgart’s last five games seeing two or fewer goals, it is foreseeable that they will try to keep it tight yet again.

Recent history in this fixture also suggests that this could be a low-scoring affair, with each of the last four iterations producing two or fewer total goals. Both teams scored in just one of those games, a 1-1 draw in a season that Cologne finished in the relegation play-off spot… now the boot is on the other foot!

Cologne have their own need to win, as while a top-seven place is assured, they could yet oust Union Berlin from their position in sixth and thus qualify for the Europa League instead of the Conference League. However, a draw will do them no favours on that front, so it looks like it is win or bust.

Going against the grain

Stuttgart’s home league games have typically been very entertaining affairs, averaging 3.6 total goals per-game. That just serves to increase the price on under 2.5 goals in this game, which looks a very attractive proposition given what is on the line for these sides.

As for the correct score, we are going for a 1-1 draw, a result that would ensure that both sides remain in their current positions come the final whistle.
