Match Result Prediction: Stuttgart to win
Stuttgart has gone undefeated in the last five H2Hs against Bochum at Mercedes Benz Arena while winning three of them. The Swabians are also without a loss in the last six competitive games, getting four victories. However, Bochum stands on the other end of the spectrum, featuring only three draws and two defeats in the last five competitive fixtures away from Vonovia Ruhrstadion. Considering these facts, we set Stuttgart as our favourites to take three points in this game.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
The last two H2Hs of these teams have been high-scoring affairs and witnessed a total of ten goals. Stuttgart has also notched 12 goals in the previous five fixtures in the first division and Bundesliga play-offs. On the other hand, Bochum rattled the net eight times in the same number of games. Additionally, both teams have claimed only one clean sheet in their respective aforestated durations. Hence, we predict this game to feature a total of Over 2.5 Goals.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Stuttgart
Stuttgart has found the back of the net more than once in three of the previous five competitive fixtures at Mercedes Benz Arena. Defensively, the Swabians have leaked an average of just one goal in that duration. On the other hand, Bochum has been limited to only one goal in three of the last four league outings away from Vonovia Ruhrstadion. The Blues have also scored only one goal in each of the previous four H2Hs against Stuttgart at Mercedes Benz Arena. Therefore, we believe to see a 2-1 lead for Stuttgart at the end of the ninety minutes in this encounter.
