Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Stuttgart quickly bounced back from a 4-1 loss to Mainz, with the team outclassing Mainz on the road on Matchday 2. Die Schwaben impressed in their first away game of the season, but the bad news for boss Pellegrino Matarazzo is that important defender Pascal Stenzel was sent off in the dying minutes of Saturday’s clash. The 24-year-old is out of contention for the Bayer Leverkusen game, as well as Argentine attacker Nicolas Gonzalez (hip injury).
The BayArena outfit, on the other hand, shared the spoils with the likes of Wolfsburg and Leipzig in the previous two league fixtures. Bayer Leverkusen are eager to record their first victory of the season, and given Stuttgart’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Paulinho is likely to miss the match through injury for the visiting team.
