Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Stuttgart win

Odds: 8/15 @ Pribet

Looking to extend on their Champions League charge on Friday night, Stuttgart will welcome Union Berlin to the MHPArena.

Starting with the hosts, while Stuttgart might have found themselves at the heart of a Bundesliga relegation scrap last season, Die Roten are enjoying a real domestic fairytale this time around. Continuing to receive a string of plaudits from across Germany’s elite and with the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, Sebastian Hoeneß’s men will be looking to make another statement here. Remarkably battling it out in the top-four chase and with a famous Champions League ticket at the top of their agenda in 2024, the former Hoffenheim boss has seen his squad pick up an astonishing 16 points from their previous six Bundesliga appearances. Last seen putting in another action-packed display as they secured a 3-2 victory away at Wolfsburg, Stuttgart have continued to shine with their clinical performances in the final third. With their stellar purple patch underlined by a 5-2 romp against RB Leipzig back on January 27th, it should also be highlighted that Hoeneß’s side have suffered just a single defeat at the MHPArena so far this season.

As for the visitors, while Union Berlin might have made real history last season as they secured a Champions League spot, Nenad Bjelica’s men have endured a public domestic struggle this time around. Last seen putting in a toothless display on home soil as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund, the Iron Ones almost find themselves sat in Bundesliga limbo. Appearing destined to settle for a bottom-half finish in 2024, the Reds have claimed just a pair of victories from any of their previous nine top-flight appearances. Facing what will be a heavyweight challenge on Friday night, Union Berlin should also be worried by a downbeat record against Stuttgart. Hit with a 1-0 loss when they travelled to the MHPArena while in DFP Pokal action on October 31st, Bjelica’s side have lost back-to-back meetings by an aggregate score of 4-0. Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Bundesliga table, we are predicting a home victory here.
