Market: Stuttgart win
Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport
With the chance to briefly climb into the top-four, a high-flying Stuttgart will make the trip to a struggling Schalke on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, completely blown away in their derby day matchup against bitter rivals Borussia Dortmund last weekend and hit with a 3-0 drumming on their travels, the mood in Schalke’s camp certainly remains at a worrying low. While the former German giants might just about managed to keep hold of their Bundesliga status last season, they really have the feel of a club in freefall and many have tipped Die Knappen as a leading contender to be hit with the drop this time around. Opening up the 2020/2021 campaign with what was an embarrassing 8-0 hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich last month, Head Coach Manuel Baum has seen his side pick up just a single point from their opening five top-flight appearances.
As for the visitors, while Schalke might find themselves in the midst of a crisis, Stuttgart have shocked many since making their Bundesliga return over the summer. Appearing to only be going from strength to strength, Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men are enjoying what has been a hugely impressive four-match top-flight unbeaten run. Knowing that three points this weekend will see them briefly breaking into the Champions League spots, the Whites have also impressed many across Germany with their recent displays in the final third, partially on their travels. Securing back-to-back 2-0 and 4-1 victories away at Hertha Berlin and Mainz, there is no doubt that Stuggart will make the trip to rural Germany confident of laying down another away day marker.
