Leipzig vs Stuttgart: prediction for the Bundesliga match
After a dominating victory in Gelsenkirchen, Leipzig will host Stuttgart, who managed to leave the relegation zone. Will the Bulls secure a victory on January 27? The answer is in our prediction.
Leipzig picked four points from first two Bundesliga matches of 2023. Marco Rose's men managed to avoid defeat in a game against Bayern (1:1) and crushed Schalke (6:1) on away in a mid-week match. The Bulls scored four goals in the first half. Andre Silva is showing impressive scoring abilities with Christopher Nkunku injured.
Peter Gulacsi is also unavailable, but backup keeper makes no mistakes so far and team is looking great overall. With 32 points, club is currently at the 3rd position with a good chance of climbing even higher.
Stuttgart managed to avoid defeats in two first matches of 2023, snatching draws from Mainz (1:1) and Hoffenheim (2:2). Bruno Labbadia's men were close to a victory in Sinsheim, but the Villagers scored an equalizer in added time.
However, it was enough for the Swabians to leave the relegation zone, but it is too early to stop. Team is approaching a tough challenge - it will be hard to snatch the points in Leipzig.
Ставка Correct score 3:1
Leipzig secured two of nine latest home victories by that score
Ставка Leipzig to score in the first half
This bet played in four of five home matches of Leipzig
Ставка First half: total over 1.5 goals
This bet played in four of five latest away matches of Stuttgart
Leipzig looked aggressively up front in the match against Schalke, that victory will surely give a confidence boost to the Bulls in their fight for the title. Team is quite successful at home, plus hosts secured clean sheet victories over today's opponent in four latest head-to-head matches.
Stuttgart played well in recent matches, but they are unlikely to stop the Bulls on their way to the top of the standings. The Swabians won't be able to hold such a strong offensive line, so visitors will probably suffer a heavy defeat.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) on Leipzig
However, the Swabians managed to score in each of two previous matches, so they should be able to create some goal-scoring chances. The Bulls will be active on the offense for the whole 90 minutes, so they should be able to score more than two goals. We believe that the hosts will win by a comfortable margin.
Our second bet is on Leipzig to win by two goals
