On Saturday afternoon, Stuttgart will look to build on their recent good form when they welcome inconsistent Werder Bremen to the Mercedes-Benz Arena.Stuttgart form guide
Die Roten have recorded back-to-back Bundesliga victories over Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt to stay in the mix for the top-four spots in the German top-flight.
Sebastian Hoeness’ team is currently in third place in the table, five points behind second-place Bayern Munich and seven adrift of league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
The home sides' recent Bundesliga games have been highly prolific, as ten of their 12 league games this season have produced over 2.5 goals.
Striker Deniz Undav has certainly contributed to those recent victories, as the Brighton loanee has scored three goals in the wins over BVB and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Stuttgart has a solid recent home record in the Bundesliga, as they have won five of their previous six league games on home soil while also scoring at least two goals in their last six matches at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.Werder Bremen form guide
Die Werderaner are currently in 12th place in the Bundesliga table, having collected just 11 points from their opening 12 league games.
They head to Stuttgart on a run of just one win in their seven games in the German top-flight. However, a 3-0 defeat against league leaders Bayer Leverkusen last time out ended a three-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga.
One positive for Ole Werner’s team is that they have scored at least two goals in three of their last four league games.
What is not positive is Werder’s recent away record, as they are winless in eight away games in the Bundesliga. However, a 2-2 draw at Wolfsburg ended a seven-game losing streak on their league travels.What am I backing?
Stuttgart have looked impressive of late in the Bundesliga, and I am backing Die Roten to record a third straight league victory in this clash.
