All Hoffenheim v Stuttgart game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below (inc. the best betting odds).
Hoffenheim will be looking for an improved result here following a 3-1 Bundesliga 1 loss in their previous game against Union Berlin.
In that game, Hoffenheim managed 48% possession and 12 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Hoffenheim was Ihlas Bebou (43'). For their opponents, Union Berlin got 22 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Danilho Doekhi (73', 89') and Jamie Leweling (96') scored for Union Berlin.
Fixtures featuring Hoffenheim have tended to be entertaining encounters lately with a lot of goalmouth action being the norm. Over their past 6 clashes alone, a total of 21 goals have been scored for both sides combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 6 of them being chalked up by Hoffenheim. That being said, we’ll just have to find out if the trend might be maintained in this next match.
Going into this contest, Hoffenheim have not won at home in their last 5 league games. Their fans aren't happy.
In their last fixture, Stuttgart drew 1-1 in the Bundesliga 1 match with Mainz.
In that game, Stuttgart managed 56% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 4 on target. The only player to score for Stuttgart was Serhou Guirassy (36'). At the other end, Mainz 05 had 13 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Marcus Ingvartsen (40') was the scorer for Mainz.
The stats tell the story, and Stuttgart have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 13 goals overall. At the back, Stuttgart can certainly do much better.
Leading up to this clash, Stuttgart:
- have not won against Hoffenheim when they have played them away from home in the previous 7 league matches. Not good at all.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 17 league games. They must be getting so desperate.

Team News: Hoffenheim
Grischa Prömel (Ankle Fracture), Kevin Vogt (Muscular problems), Jacob Bruun Larsen (Groin Surgery) and Kevin Akpoguma (Ligament Injury) are unavailable for Hoffenheim gaffer André Breitenreiter. Ozan Kabak will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Stuttgart
Stuttgart manager Bruno Labbadia has to choose a team with limited availability. Dan-Axel Zagadou (Torn Ankle Ligament), Laurin Ulrich (Influenza) and Borna Sosa (Adductor problems) will not be playing here.
Here, we’re thinking that Stuttgart will have a tough ask to put one past this Hoffenheim side who we think will win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We therefore fancy a good tussle with a 1-0 winning score for Hoffenheim at the end of this one.
Should be interesting.
