Wolfsburg will look to close the gap at the top of the Bundesliga when they host bottom club Stuttgart at the Volkswagon Arena. Wolfsburg are a terrific side led by the brilliant Kevin De Bruyne and dutch striker Dost. Wolfsburg will be looking to take advantage of any slips by Bayern Munich and with Munich travelling to Dortmund in the evening game Wolfsburg will be hoping to apply some pressure with a win here. Wolfsburg are one of the favourites for the Europa League and should definitely finish in the top two in the Bundesliga to give themselves a shot at the Champions League next season.
Stuttgart are anchored to the bottom of the league but they managed their first win in ten last time out and are now only three points from safety. This season has been a disaster for Stuttgart but if they can get out of it still in the Bundesliga that will be a remarkable turn around. With Harnik top scorer with five goals it is pretty obvious that Stuttgart's main problems have been putting the ball in the net. They do face a Wolfsburg defence that have been anything but solid. In fact Wolfsburg have had just one clean sheet in their last twelve Bundesliga games.
I am taking the overs here, as all season the Overs have been a solid play in Wolfsburg games. Stuttgart dont score alot but I think they can cause Wolfsburg some problems and with Wolfsburg quality strikers and midfielders I think Wolfsburg will get two or three. This is a big opportunity for Wolfsburg to put some pressure on Munich before Bayern travel to Dortmund, I think Wolfsburg will take that chance with a big performance here.
