Stuttgart – Borussia Dortmund – Bundesliga – Prediction and Preview: 18th November 2017
Stuttgart, although it is the host team and benefits from its own ground, starts with the second chance this evening, which does not surprise anyone, yet to face one of the most powerful teams of German football. The Swabians did not have a great track this season, being at this point in the second half of the standings, being at five points in the relegation zone. In the 11 stages so far, Hannes Wolf’s team has accumulated 13 points, winning four wins and a draw, suffering six defeats, matches in which he scored ten goals, winning four more. It should be noted that Stuttgart is unbeaten on its own in this edition of the championship, in five games spanning four wins, drawing once, games in which received one goal, marking seven.
• PROBABILA TEAM: Zieler – Pavard, Badstuber, Baumgartl – Insua, Ascacibar, Gentner, Beck – Akolo, Asano – Ginczek
Borussia Dortmund on the other side is seen as a favorite in bookmakers, as it was normal, as being the most valuable team, having the resources to make it even if it evolves away. “Yellow-Black” lost ground in the championship, falling to third place in the standings, going to six points by Bayern Munich and two by RB Leipzig, occupying the second position. Borussia Dortmund was in a very weak form, in the last seven games, winning one victory, against modest Magdeburg. Durm, Reus, Rode and Piszczek will miss today because of injuries, while Aubameyang will not play because of disciplinary problems.
• PROBABIL TEAM: Burki – Guerreiro, Zagadou, Sokratis, Bartra – Gotze, Weigl, Kagawa – Pulisic, Isak, Yarmolenko
Generally, most direct duels ended with success at both gates, and today it is not excluded to have a similar outcome.
