VfB Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig Betting Predictions 16/02/2019

VfB Stuttgart is currently in a state of chaos. But that’s not uncommon when a club falls short of expectations. The great last season has aroused desires that the squad can not currently meet. With coach Tayfun Korkut and this week also sports director Michael Reschke have already been hunted down two decision-makers from the farm. Coach Markus Weinzierl has at least received a job guarantee for the match against RB Leipzig. If the Swabians but on Saturday concede another bankruptcy, the short era Weinzierl could perhaps go back as a misunderstanding in the annals of the Stuttgarter.

Today’s Betting Prediction VfB Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig

Thomas Hitzlsperger is the new strong man and should bring peace to the club, so that the sporty descent comes to an end. The VfB is in desperate need of relegation and the cops from Saxony are well on their way to the Champions League. Therefore, before the game between VfB Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig the first tip in the direction of an away win. The Swabians are currently in 16th place and only one point ahead of the direct relegation places. However, VfB also has the worst goal difference in the league. The Bulls, however, have settled in fourth place and are well on the way to fix their comeback in the premier class. There is not much to suggest in the duel between VfB Stuttgart and RB Leipzig to exploit the odds on a threesome of the home side. There are even signs that there is a lot going on for the next debacle for Markus Weinzierl and his kickers. We would be very surprised if the crisis on the Swabians on Saturday would not worsen even further.

VfB Stuttgart – Statistics & Current Form

VfB Stuttgart is currently skating through the Bundesliga. For weeks, nothing fits together. The criticism of the composition of the squad is getting louder. Above all, missing technical qualities and lack of speed seem to be the biggest drawbacks. For this, the team members do not interlock. Overall, there are several people responsible for the crisis in Swabia. Two of them have already been dismissed with Tayfun Korkut and Michael Reschke.

The last numbers are still scary. Stuttgart is the worst defensive in the Bundesliga and conceded 47 goals. In addition, the Swabians have not won in the last six games. Under these conditions, the descent could end in the second Bundesliga. Before the match between VfB Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig, we would not give any prognosis on the relegation of the Stuttgarter. Maybe the knot bursts on Saturday, but the belief in it is missing, because even in the past week, the Swabians presented themselves as a relegated.

In terms of the number of games, VfB in Dusseldorf was even a bit stronger, but due to individual mistakes and inattentiveness, the team of Markus Weinzierl keeps winning over the wages of the job.

“We know that we have to show a different face and present ourselves differently than in Dusseldorf. We need points, but Leipzig is a strong opponent, well structured, very dynamic and with a clear game idea. ” – Markus Weinzierl

At the end there was a sad 0: 3 to book. The circle of relegation candidates is currently getting smaller. The only constant is that the VfB will continue to do so. Markus Weinzierl demands of his team that they appear differently against Leipzig than in the bankruptcy in Dusseldorf. However, he knows about the strengths of the bulls and it becomes a Herculean task to make this match successful.

Stuttgart will have to do without Timo Baumgartl, Dennis Aogo and Nicolas Gonzalez on Saturday. The latter flew against Dusseldorf after an attack on the square. Mario Gomez will be back in the team for this. World Champion Benjamin Pavard could get a break. Since his move to Munich is known, the Frenchman leaves a rather listless impression. Andreas Beck would be his backup in the back four.

Expected formation of VfB Stuttgart:
Zieler – Beck, Kabak, Kempf, Sosa – Ascacibar, Gentner – Esswein, Zuber, Didavi – Gomez – Trainer: Weinzierl

Last matches of VfB Stuttgart:

  • 10.02.2019 – Dusseldorf vs. VfB Stuttgart 3: 0 (Bundesliga)
  • 03.02.2019 – VfB Stuttgart vs. Freiburg 2: 2 (Bundesliga)
  • 27.01.2019 – Bayern vs. Germany VfB Stuttgart 4: 1 (Bundesliga)
  • 19.01.2019 – VfB Stuttgart vs. Mainz 2: 3 (Bundesliga)
  • 11.01.2019 – Cercle Bruges vs. VfB Stuttgart 2: 2 (Friendly Match)

RB Leipzig – Statistics & Current Form

We would already bet that RB Leipzig will play again in the Champions League in the coming season. The Bulls had some problems in the first half of the season because they had to start early in the qualifying for the Europa League. Now they are freed from these tasks and have with DFB Cup and Bundesliga only a double burden. Meanwhile, it is running very well for Ralf Rangnick and his charges. In the last four competitive games, there were three wins and a draw, while conceded Leipzig once again no goal. After all, put the bulls with only 18 cashed matches the most stable defensive of the Bundesliga. On the other hand, a lead could spring out early in Stuttgart, because the Saxons are the league’s fastest starters. In the first quarter of an hour, Ralf Rangnick’s team has already scored nine goals. Given the task on Saturday could be interesting in the duel between VfB Stuttgart and RB Leipzig, the odds on an early leadership of the bulls. A halftime lead and a win for Leipzig (HT 1 / FT 1) we also consider very possible.

Here and there it also hooks up with RB Leipzig. Last weekend, they would have been able to keep a competitor even more clearly in the fight for the premier class, but against Eintracht Frankfurt it was enough only to a goalless draw. The Saxons had some good scoring opportunities, but they could not use.

“The VfB cultivates under Markus Weinzierl the playful approach and tries to come over the own ball possession. At the moment it is not easy for Stuttgart to be in the table – that does not make the opponent any less dangerous. ” – Ralf Rangnick

On Saturday in Stuttgart everything is done for a victory. That does not mean that it will be easy. Ralf Rangnick warns of his ex-club and knows that the Stuttgart quite try to play well-groomed football. That could well play the fast switching game of the bulls in the cards. On Saturday, Kevin Kampl, Dayot Upamecano and Amadou Haidara will be injured. Konrad Laimer also has a yellow card suspension. That could mean that Emil Forsberg will give his start-up comeback.

Expected formation of RB Leipzig:
Gulacsi – Klostermann, Konate, Orban, Halstenberg – Adams, Demme, Sabitzer, Forsberg – Poulsen, Werner – Coach: Rangnick

Last matches of RB Leipzig:

  • 09.02.2019 – RB Leipzig vs. Frankfurt 0: 0 (Bundesliga)
  • 06.02.2019 – RB Leipzig vs. Wolfsburg 1: 0 (DFB Cup)
  • 01.02.2019 – Hannover vs. RB Leipzig 0: 3 (Bundesliga)
  • 27.01.2019 – Dusseldorf vs. RB Leipzig 0: 4 (Bundesliga)
  • 19.01.2019 – RB Leipzig vs. Dortmund 0: 1 (Bundesliga)

EUROPE: Europa League

Galatasaray vs Benfica Lisbon Free Betting Tips 14/02/2019

The Thursday night in the Europa League has some high-profile matches at the start, which would have had the potential to CL pairings in the knockout stage. Among other things, the duel between Galatasaray and Benfica Lisbon stands out. The Turkish record champion was able to maintain the third group place in the Champions League with the help of FC Schalke helpers and continues the season in the Europa League. Benfica Lisbon have not prevailed in a group with Bayern and Ajax, but won easily the third group place in the Champions League. Gala and Benfica were both convincing in their dress rehearsal at the weekend. The Turks prevailed in the top match against Trabzonspor, the Portuguese scored in front of a home crowd Nacional double digits! In the duel between Galatasaray and Benfica Lisbon a prediction in favor of the guests after the recent performance is quite realistic.

Today’s Betting Tips Galatasaray vs Benfica Lisbon

The Türk Telekom Stadium in Istanbul will turn into a real cauldron. Whether the twelfth man in the back is reason enough, at Galatasaray Vs. Benfica Lisbon a tip on the home side to place, is rather questionable. Although the “lions” from Istanbul have presented themselves solidly at home in the season so far, the performances on the international stage were not exactly convincing. However, this should change with the new transfers on board. “Imperator” Fatih Terim looked optimistic before the sixteen-final against Benfica. At the latest after the historic victory of Benfica in the Portuguese league Terim but should be clear that Benfica will demand the “lion” everything. On Thursday evening, the first leg between Galatasaray and Benfica will be at 18:55 CET at the Türk Telekom Stadium in Istanbul.

Galatasaray – Statistics & Current Form

At the beginning of the season, it was lacking in the Turkish record champions especially at the Kaderbreite. The failed transfer policy was felt Galatasaray in full severity. It was not sought after adequate replacement for departures, which ultimately meant that Galatasaray, for example, simply could not compensate for the departure of Bafetimbi Gomis. In the meantime, offensive players like Sinan Gümüs simply slipped into the lead. The formidable Derdiyok was partly also due to injury not available. Now, after being upgraded in the winter, Galatasaray is heading for the title race in the Süper Lig and the knockout stages in the Europa League. In the latter, Benfica Lisbon is a real chunk at Gala. The dress rehearsal before the duel against Benfica succeeded Galatasaray. In the derby of the traditional clubs, the Turkish champions beat against Trabzonspor easily and continue to be close followers of championship leader Basaksehir. As in the previous season, the championship will be held this time as well. In the season so far Galatasaray but mainly a significant away weakness. Again and again unnecessary point losses are plugged in on foreign terrain. In the Champions League, there was not a single point for Galatasaray in three away matches. In five conceded goals against the “lion” away were just a harmless kitten. Galatasaray could not claim a single away goal in the Champions League. So it is all the more important for the team of “Imperator” Terim, in the first leg at home for a good starting position against Benfica to provide Lisbon. In the Süper Lig Galatasaray currently has the best home record (seasonal). No other Süper Lig team could stay unbeaten at home longer than Galatasaray. Can Gala also build on this internationally?

For this, some players have to outgrow themselves. In terms of performance, the recent league game was indeed quite sovereign, but appearances are deceptive with the “lions”. Intimidation of the opponent by powerful attacking game? Rather unwary. So far, Galatasaray could not really play the opponent on the wall, but had to act partly with the handbrake on. Whether the problems in the second half of the season with the newcomers will be solved, will be seen later in the season. The two strikers Mitroglu and Diagne will be like a blessing for the Turkish record champions. By the time the new additions have adapted to the new system under Fatih Terim, it will certainly take a few more games. It is quite possible that the Portuguese will therefore gain an advantage from the first leg and ensure a good starting position. In Galatasaray vs Benfica Lisbon is according to the balanced odds but no clear favorite to identify.

Expected formation of Galatasaray:
Muslera; Nagatomo, Marcao, Luyindama, Linnes; Belhanda, Ndiaye, Fernando; Onyekuru, Diagne, Feghouli

Last games by Galatasaray:

  • 10.02.2019 – Galatasaray Vs. Trabzonspor 3: 1 (Süper Lig)
  • 06.02.2019 – Galatasaray Vs. Hatayspor 2: 0 (Pokal)
  • 02.02.2019 – Alanyaspor vs. Galatasaray 1: 1 (Super League)
  • 29.01.2019 – Galatasaray vs. Boluspor 4: 1 (Pokal)
  • 26.01.2019 – Goztepe etc. Galatasaray 0: 1 (Super League)

Benfica Lisbon – Statistics & Current Form

As second in the table, Benfica are close opponents of FC Porto in the domestic league and will probably deliver an adrenaline-rich title race. With the 10: 0-Erfolg on the last matchday a clear signal was set. Benfica storms into the championship – is it enough in the end? For now, it is now in the Europa League knockout phase against Galatasaray. Since the beginning of the calendar year Benfica Lisbon is traveling with coach Bruno Lage. If the strong performance continues, an extension of the half-year contract would be quite conceivable. The recent game by Benfica shows but one thing in particular: the strong offensive of the Portuguese! With 57 goals Benfica currently represents the strongest offensive of the Portuguese Primera Liga. On location, Lage’s team took a total of 25 points and are the strongest team in the distance. On average, about two goals per game were scored per away match. Most recently, there were three away wins in a row, including a 4-2 win at city rivals Sporting. In addition to the derby success in the league for Benfica but recently also had a home win over the city rivals in the Cup. With the showdown against the city rivals Benfica could prepare well for the duel against Galatasaray. In the games against FC Bayern Munich and Ajax Amsterdam last year, Benfica was certainly not on the best side; nevertheless, the recent increase in performance at Benfica is huge. A single goal in Istanbul would take Benfica one leg to the next round. With the home strength of the Portuguese and the away weakness of the Turks, a progress of Galatasaray in Lisbon would be unthinkable.

Alejandro Grimaldo, Ruben Dias and Gedson Fernandes are among the most valuable players in the squad of Benfica. Especially Grimaldo is already courted by the European top clubs. It is quite possible that the left-back will change in the summer. In the concentrated offensive in the team of Bruno Lage, the defensive of Galatasaray will have much to do. If Benfica can easily shift the offensive play to the wings, an away goal should be only a matter of time. On the last day of the game, the offensive was in good shape. Haris Seferovic raised his account to 13 goals. Pizzi was able to bring his scorer points to 21 and has so far with 13 assists most of the team’s goals. If Benfica can even approximate the performance of the last matchday, should Galatasaray vs. Benfica Lisbon a prediction in favor of the guests true.

Expected formation of Benfica Lisbon:
Vlachodimos; Grimaldo, Dias, Ferro, Almeida; Silva, Samaris, Gabriel, Pizzi; Felix; Seferovic

Last matches of Benfica Lisbon:
