VfB Stuttgart is welcoming Borussia M’gladbach to Mercedes Benz Arena in round 16 in the German Bundesliga.
Stuttgart has been a little hot and cold as of late, and because of that they are now in 10th place with 21 points, 30 scored goals, and 22 conceded goals. Stuttgart has one win and one loss in their last 2 games, and they have scored 4 goals while conceding 2 goals. Wamangituka is the leading goalscorer for Stuttgart with 8 goals and 3 assists, while Gonzalez and Kalajdzic have each added 5 goals. Kalajdzic also has 3 assists. Awoudja, Mola, Al Ghaddioui, and Egloff are all injured for Stuttgart. In their last game, Stuttgart was playing against Augsburg on the road, and they have been fantastic with 57% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a solid 85% of the correct passes. Stuttgart scored 2 goals in each half, and their defense was solid. Stuttgart was the better team here, and they have deservedly won this match 1-4. This has been a great season for Stuttgart so far, and they can still reach the Europa League spot, but Stuttgart must stay consistent, and they need to start playing better soccer at home.
Borussia has been struggling in Bundesliga this season, and they are only in 7th place with 24 points, 28 scored goals, and 24 conceded goals. M’gladbach is now on a 3-game winning streak, and they have scored 9 goals while doing it and conceding only 2 goals.

Stindl is the leading goalscorer for Borussia M’gladbach with 8 goals, while Hofmann added 4 goals and 6 assists. Lazaro, Quizera, Reitz, and Scally are injured, while Thuram is still suspended because of the red card. The next few games will be crucial for Borussia M’gladbach in their Champions League spot run, and they better stay consistent because the Champions League will be back, and Borussia will be facing one of the favorites, Manchester City.
Stuttgart still hasn’t won a home game this season, but the trends are on their side in this matchup. The home team has dominated this series, but I can’t side with Stuttgart here because of their terrible form at home. Borussia M’gladbach is a small favorite here, and because they are on a 3-game winning streak, I will take it.
