Prediction: Bayern Munich to win 5-0

Best Odds35/1


VfB Stuttgart and Bayern Munich will face each other in the Bundesliga this coming weekend. The match between Die Roten and Die Bayern will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Arena and is scheduled to kick off at 5:30pm UK time on Saturday.

VfB Stuttgart

VfB Stuttgart are having a terrible season and could get relegated from the Bundesliga. Die Roten finished as high as ninth in the league table back in the 2020-21 season, but during the 2021-22 campaign, they slipped down to 16th. And now there is a distinct possibility that they will go down to 2. Bundesliga.

Bruno Labbadia’s side are 15th in the Bundesliga table at the moment with 19 points from 22 matches. VfB Stuttgart are level on points with second-from-bottom VfL Bochum and only three points above bottom side FC Schalke 04. They are also just a point behind Hertha Berlin in 14th.

VfB Stuttgart will head into the match against Bayern Munich at home in the Bundesliga on the back of a 2-1 defeat to FC Schalke 04 on the road in the league. It came after a 3-0 victory over FC Koln at home in the Bundesliga and followed a 2-1 loss at the hands of FC Freiburg away.

Team News:

VfB Stuttgart are likely to line up in a 4-3-3 formation. Gil Dias, Katompa Mvumpa and Fuhrich will be three forwards. Bredlow will be in goal.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are the biggest club in Germany and have won the Bundesliga title for the past 10 years. The Bavarian giants have a stranglehold over German football, and things are unlikely to change this year, although there have been one or two signs that they are not infallible.

Der FCB are not running away with the Bundesliga title this season. Bayern are still at the top of the league table, but only on goal difference. Julian Nagelsmann’s side have picked up 46 points from 22 matches, as many as second-placed Borussia Dortmund. FC Union Berlin in third place have bagged 43 points from 22 matches, while RB Leipzig are currently in fourth place with 42 points from 22 matches. Even SC Freiburg could fancy an unlikely challenge for the Bundesliga title. They have picked up 41 points from 22 games.

Bayern will head into the match against VfB Stuttgart away from home on the back of a 3-0 win against FC Union Berlin at the Allianz Arena in the Bundesliga. It came after a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Borussia Mönchengladbach on the road and followed a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain away from home in France in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie.

Team News:

Sadio Mane is back in action for Bayern Munich after a long injury layoff and is set to start for the German powerhouse. Thomas Muller should keep his place in the Bayern team, while Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will lead the line.

Key Factors to Consider

  • VfB Stuttgart have won 4 out of 22 Bundesliga matches so far this season.
  • VfB Stuttgart have scored 27 goals in 22 Bundesliga matches so far this season.
  • Bayern Munich have lost 2 out of 22 Bundesliga games so far this campaign.
  • Bayern Munich have won 3 of their last 5 Bundesliga games.
  • Jamal Musiala has scored 11 goals and given 7 assists in 21 Bundesliga matches for Bayern Munich.


It would be a shock if Bayern Munich slipped up against VfB Stuttgart even away from home. The defending Bundesliga champions have the best squad in Germany, while their hosts are in dire state and could get relegated to the second division of German football at the end of the season. While there is always a chance that Stuttgart could score, Bayern are more than good enough to ease to a comfortable win.

Prediction: Bayern Munich to win 5-0
