VfB Stuttgart vs FC Koln Prediction & Betting tips
The lyrics “Everything has an end, only the sausage has two. Yes, my darling, it’s over “by Stephan Remmler the fans of the Effzeh would probably best be on the Friday evening in Stuttgart to give the best after the start of the 1.FC Cologne to the current season was worse than anyone else before. The chances are quite good, as the VfB Stuttgart also looks for its form after the direct resurgence. The Swabians could score points only in front of their own audience. The fact that the match will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart will certainly reduce the chances of the first victory of the Rhinelanders. However, the VfB won no home game against the Cologne since 1999. We believe that this series will not break even this year, the Stöger elf with at least one point the journey home and in the Cologne pubs perhaps even the classic from the headline is sung. Our bets are bets on double chance X / 2, for which interesting odds up to 1.85 are offered.
VfB Stuttgart :
The VfB Stuttgart has probably hoped for a little more than the fourteenth place the Swabian side will be able to score after the seventh day of the match with a goal difference of 4: 9 and 7 points. The reason for the moderate start is certainly in the away games to look for. There, the balance is a veritable one. All four matches were lost, making the VfB the worst away team in the Bundesliga. However, the home strength is to be emphasized positively. In the Mercedes-Benz Arena, Hannes Wolf’s team remained undefeated throughout the season since December 2016, winning seven of the possible nine points against Mainz and Wolfsburg as well as a goalless draw on the penultimate day.
The current form of the Stuttgarter underscores Michael Reschke’s statement. Because from the last five games, the Swabians won only three points more than the upcoming opponent. A victory against the Effzeh would therefore be important not only for one’s morality but also for the points account. Finally, the lead to the Cologne could be expanded to nine points, in the case of a defeat, however, he halved. Hannes Wolf and his team wanted to finish the last defeat against the Frankfurt side in the national league. However, the absence of a total of twelve professionals, which had led him to the national team, proved a problem.
FC Koln :
After one of the best seasons in the history of the club and the first qualifying for the Europa League for twenty-five years, the FC also wanted to fully attack this season and build on the latest achievements. However, the 1. FC Cologne put a catastrophic failure, which was like a red thread to the national pause. Of the seven previously played games in the Bundesliga, six were lost and only one ended with a draw. The guilt – if one wants to call it – is to be found in all the team parts. Thus, with only two goals scored, the goat bobs represent the worst offensive in the league. The defensive, however, does not lag much behind. With fifteen contenders, the Cologne has been the shooting gallery in the German Oberhaus.
Alone with the departure of goalmaker Anthony Modeste, the bad performance can certainly not be justified. Nevertheless, the 1.FC Cologne set up just before the two-week break in the offensive once again and committed the somewhat more mature, but very experienced striker Claudio Pizarro. He has already made his debut against Leipzig (1: 2) in the last game before the international league, and has a good share in the second season. On the next day, however, the players are hoping that Pizarro will score their eleventh goal against VfB and extend their record of five wins from six matches against the Swabians. Whether he is in the starting line will be waiting.
