Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund Predictions

VfB Stuttgart, who climbed steadily out and away from the relegation zone with strong form from December through to late February (W5 D3), haven’t been themselves in the last few weeks. Stuttgart lost 1-0 to fellow strugglers FC Augsburg and this result has left Jürgen Kramny’s side just three points above Werder Bremen and the relegation play-off spot. Stuttgart seem unconfident and out-of-form coming into this one, having dropped 13 points in their last five games (D2 L3), and could potentially find themselves in the relegation zone after this weekend.

Borussia Dortmund are certainly not to be the easiest team to rebound off to turn around poor form, though. Dortmund are hoping to keep their diminishing title hopes alive, and to do so they must avoid defeat at the Mercedez-Benz Arena. Following last Sunday’s 3-0 win over Hamburger SV, Dortmund remained seven points behind top of the league Bayern Munich, with twelve points left to play for. So if both Stuttgart win and Bayern Munich win this weekend, the Bavarians will be the league champions and secure their fourth consecutive Bundesliga title, something Dortmund will be actively hoping to avoid.

Stuttgart are, however, the joint weakest team in the Bundesliga over the last five matchdays (D2 L3), alongside deflated Wolfsburg, and they have conceded 11 goals (2.2 goals per game) over the same period. Borussia Dortmund have won each of their last four visits to Stuttgart and are undefeated against Stuttgart in their last eleven meetings – no team has ever waited longer for a win against Dortmund. “Der BVB” remain one of the most in-form sides in the Bundesliga, winning four and drawing one from their last five, scoring at least two goals in each. Given the contrasting league forms and pressures on both sides, we expect Dortmund to take apart a nervous Stuttgart and keep their title chase alive for another matchday. Combining this analysis with the statistics below, both Borussia Dortmund (-1) handicap and Borussia Dortmund to win 3-1 at 11/1 seem like top value bets for this match.
