VfB Stuttgart is welcoming Borussia Dortmund to Mercedes Benz Arena in round 29 of the German Bundesliga. Stuttgart is now in good form, they are very close to securing their Bundesliga spot, and I think they will. Borussia has lost pretty much every chance of catching up to Bayern, and they will need to wait for next season to give it another shot.
Stuttgart is now undefeated in their last 4 games, and they are in 15th place with 27 points, which is only 1 point more than Arminia has in 16th. Stuttgart has had a lot of injuries this season, and they still do, and honestly, I think that has had a huge part in how their season has turned out. Of the 36 goals Stuttgart has scored this season, Kalajdzic and Mavropanos have scored 4 goals each. Borna Sosa has added 7 assists. Unfortunately for Stuttgart, Kalajdzic is injured, and alongside him a bunch of other players. There are only 6 games left to be played in Bundesliga, and Stuttgart still has to play against Bayern, which means they should secure their Bundesliga spot before that, otherwise it might get tough for them.
Borussia Dortmund is still in 2nd place, but they are now 9 points away from Bayern, and there is no way they can catch up. Offensively, Borussia Dortmund has scored 68 goals in 28 games, but their defense is horrible and has cost them a lot this season. Haaland is still the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 16 goals, but he hasn’t scored in a while which means he is due. Haaland has also added 6 assists, while Bellingham has added 7 assists. There are a few injuries in Borussia, but they are getting some defenders back, and Marco Reus should be healthy. Borussia is also playing against Bayern in a few weeks, and if they win, they might make the end of the season complicated and exciting. Overall, Borussia is a fantastic team, they have a lot of talent, but they always slip up when they shouldn’t, and they just can’t win the title.
Stuttgart is in better form now, but with the number of injuries they have, they will have a hard time here. The trends are on Borussia’s side, but their defense is also terrible. I see goals on both sides, but I think Borussia gets the win.
