On Friday night, Stuttgart will be looking to extend their recent solid Bundesliga record when they welcome Darmstadt to the Mercedes-Benz Arena.Stuttgart form guide
Die Roten have made a solid start to the new Bundesliga campaign, winning three of their last four matches, having scored at least two goals in all three of the four victories.
A key factor in their good start to the Bundesliga campaign has been the goalscoring form of Guinea forward Sehrou Guirassy, as the former Rennes star has scored eight goals in four matches this season in the German top-flight.
Stuttgart are unbeaten in their last six home matches in the Bundesliga, having recorded three wins and three draws in front of their own supporters. A significant factor in VFB’s recent good league form has been their attacking play, as they have scored at least two goals in four of their last six Bundesliga games on home soil.Darmstadt form guide
The visitors ended a three-game losing run in the Bundesliga by recording a 3-3 home draw against Monchengladbach. The game saw Darmstadt concede at least two goals for the third straight match in the German top-flight.
In fact, they have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six Bundesliga games dating back to their previous spell in the top flight in season 2016/17.
Darmstadt have a poor recent away record in the Bundesliga, as they have failed to win in their last four league matches on their travels, having suffered three defeats and picked up just one draw.
Their recent away games in the German top flight have been relatively high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven league matches on their travels.What am I backing?
Stuttgart have looked explosive of late in the Bundesliga, while Darmstadt has been poor this season. I can’t see anything other than a home victory in this clash.
