VfB Stuttgart vs. Freiburg Betting Prediction

Both VfB Stuttgart and SC Freiburg started the new year weakly. Similar to the beginning of the season, the Swabians and the Breisgauer conceded two defeats right at the start and are therefore under pressure next Sunday in the last match of the 19th matchday. While the team of Christian Streich but has 21 points on the account, the situation at VfB is still much tense. With only 14 points, the Weinzierl-Elf still ranks on the relegation place and has really only the 1. FC Nuremberg and Hannover 96 to thank that one has not slipped on a direct relegation place.

Bundesliga VfB Stuttgart vs. Freiburg

Whether just in the small South Derby against the sports club of the proverbial buck can be reversed at the Stuttgart, may be doubted after the recent appearances, although the men of the Dreisam are a kind of favorite opponent for the Swabians.

VfB Stuttgart – Statistics & Current Form

Seldom is it experienced in this day and age that a professional has so much backbone to say that he voluntarily sits on the bench to help the team with it. This is exactly what Mario Gomez did last weekend. The former international suggested his coach prefer to set up two quick points in the away game in Munich, as he could no longer compete with the fast center-backs of the record champions anyway. In fact, Markus Weinzierl confided on Donis and Gonzalez in the front line, but was ultimately not rewarded. Although the Swabians presented themselves in comparison to the 2: 3 defeat to Mainz at the beginning of the year improved in all respects, but more than the interim equalizer by a worth seeing goal from Donis was not in it. Finally, it was called 1: 4 from VfB’s point of view, whose decline is continuing uninterrupted. With only four wins, two draws and already 13 defeats, the South Germans have a meager 14 points left. This almost embarrassing yield corresponds to the worst interim result after 19 matchdays in the long club history.

It could be a small glimmer of hope in the fight for the league, that the team of coach Markus Weinzierl on Sunday at home against the favorite opponent from Freiburg ran. As already mentioned, the VfB has been unbeaten for eight Bundesliga games against the Sport Club. In addition, the previous year seventh collected ten of the previous 14 counters in front of a home crowd. Although the record with three successes, a draw and five bankruptcy at home negative and the 18 conceded goals an indication that the necessary defensive stability has not yet been found, yet loyal supporters could support their protégés in this important South Derby crucial , The Stuttgart were particularly vulnerable in the second half of the season, in which keeper Ron-Robert Zieler already had 25 times behind him (17 goals in the first 45 minutes).
In five of the last six encounters with Swabian participation fell more goals after the break than in front of the cabin. A better statistical basis to justify between VfB Stuttgart and Freiburg a corresponding tip, there is virtually no. To finally return the attention to “team player” Mario Gomez, it should be said that the former Bayern professional particularly likes to run up against Freiburg. Nine of his twelve private duels against the Breisgauer has won Gomez. He scored twelve goals. It is quite possible that Weinzierl ordered his best scorer back to the starting eleven. Baumgartl, Maffeo, Aogo, Kliment and Meyer are injured due to injury.

Expected formation of VfB Stuttgart:
Zieler – Pavard, Kabak, Kempf, Insua – Gentner, Ascacibar – Esswein, Zuber – Donis – M. Gomez

Freiburg – Statistics & Current Form

The SC Freiburg is lucky that the team led by top scorer Nils Petersen on the first 17 matchdays this season very solid 21 points. If one evaluates the two appearances for the second half of the season, presumably the conclusion would be drawn that the protégés of Christian Streich again face a hard relegation battle. The Sport Club, on the other hand, benefits from a rather comfortable cushion and does not need to panic at currently seven points ahead of VfB Stuttgart. However, that could change abruptly, should the Breisgauer draw on Sunday evening in the Mercedes-Benz Arena the short straw. As a result, cult coach Streich would not be dissatisfied if his team returned with a point from Swabia.

Among others, a rather tentative start is to be expected, as the Freiburg this time probably want to prevent a goal in the first half. Goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow had to fish at least one ball from his own net in the first 45 minutes of the match, against Eintracht Frankfurt they were even three.
Because the defensive in the new calendar year with seven goals in 180 minutes still did not work at all, the football teacher will start here primarily, which in turn should lead to the fact that between VfB Stuttgart and Freiburg, the odds to pay more hits in the second round do. By the way, the Streich-Elf also conceded more goals after the break (18) than before the half-time whistle (14). The balance in the foreign is expandable with two wins, two draws and five defeats, although the Freiburg among other things at the 1: 1 in Munich, the 3: 1 victory in Wolfsburg or at 1: 1 in Berlin, what they in the You can do it when most of the collective has a good day. Okoroji, Höfler, Kath, Borello, Kleindienst and Sallai must fit for injury reasons.

Expected formation of Freiburg:
Schwolow – Gulde, R. Koch, Heintz – Kübler, Frantz, Haberer, C. Gunter – Höler, Grifo – Niederlechner
