Tip Reasoning

  • Stuttgart have lost two of their last three home Bundesliga games to teams just above Union Berlin in the table.
  • Union Berlin have scored exactly two goals in each of their three away Bundesliga games this season.

Berlin too crafty for juvenile hosts

Stuttgart are a young team that are clearly going places, but Union Berlin should have too much nous for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team on Sunday.

The capital club head south on the back of three straight league wins that culminated in a fine 2-0 success over Champions League outfit Wolfsburg and was arguably their most complete performance of the season.

The Iron Ones have got some silky players, such as veteran workhorse Max Kruse and fellow striker Taiwo Awoniyi. The ex-Liverpool starlet will be hoping to keep up his hot streak in front of goal, having scored five goals in his last four club appearances.

His tussles with on-loan Arsenal centre-back Kostas Mavropanos will be an interesting sub-plot to this game and could go some way to deciding it.

Stuttgart defence isn’t watertight

Stuttgart are not watertight at the back and are yet to keep a home clean sheet in four games, during which they have conceded eight times. That is a concern for any home backers because Stuttgart’s opposition at Mercedes-Benz Arena has not been the strongest.

We’re inclined to go the other way and support an away win because Union have only had one away blip this season – against Borussia Dortmund. Urs Fischer’s side are scoring goals on the road, notching six in three games against teams that are all currently higher than Stuttgart in the table.

Die Roten’s two home defeats this season came against teams that are both only one point above Union in the standings, so it would not be a huge shock if the visitors followed suit and sank Stuttgart.

Our correct score selection is for a 2-1 away win as Union have scored no more or less than two goals in each of their away Bundesliga trips so far and both teams have scored in all of Stuttgart’s home matches.
