GERMANY: Bundesliga

VfB Stuttgart vs. Mainz Betting Predictions 19/01/2019

The fans of VfB Stuttgart are happy to come up with memories of the past second half of the season. With ten wins in 17 games, the team of former coach Tayfun Korkut advanced to the second-best second round team in the entire Bundesliga and also set the best defensive of all 18 clubs.

Football Betting Prediction VfB Stuttgart vs. Mainz

Thanks to this outstanding second half series, the Swabians improved from the table cellar to seventh position and could have even in the event of a success of FC Bayern in the DFB Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt even solve the ticket for the international competition. In the current season, the Stuttgart would need a similarly strong back series, because with only 14 points after 17 matchdays, the VfB is again in the midst of the relegation battle. A positive kick-off should now succeed in the first competitive game of the new year 2019 at home against Mainz 05.
The fact that VfB Stuttgart against Mainz according to the odds is traded as a favorite, is primarily due to the expandable away balance of the Rheinhessen, which introduced in eight matches in foreign countries just as many points. In addition, it can be assumed that VfB coach Markus Weinzierl will have used the winter intensively to initiate the necessary changes. The quality on the part of the home side is definitely there, also designed the Swabians two of the youngest three home games in the highest German league victorious. Among other things, VfB Stuttgart vs. VfB vs. VfB Stuttgart is one of them. Mainz’s forecast is more towards a home threesome.

VfB Stuttgart – Statistics & Current Form

With great ambitions, VfB Stuttgart started in the Bundesliga season 2018/2019. Both the supporters and those responsible hoped that the high level of the previous second half could be conserved. It quickly became clear, however, that the Swabians in the second half of the last season under Tayfun Korkut on the one hand far exceeded their own circumstances and on the other hand profited from a lot of luck in the game. Exactly that “Fortune” has meanwhile been lost to the South Germans. From the first 17 games of the current Bundesliga season, the Stuttgart collected only a meager 14 points and also achieved by far the fewest goals of all first division (twelve). The defense, which last year was still the guarantor of success, is one of the most vulnerable defensive forces in the German upper house. Based on these numbers, it is therefore not surprising that VfB is in the middle of the relegation battle and as Table 16. currently has only three points ahead of the first direct relegation place. On the other hand, it is positive that only one point is missing on the rescue bank.

Markus Weinzierl, who followed the luckless Tayfun Korkut at the end of October, has not been able to initiate the turnaround so far and has only won three times out of the ten matches under his leadership. The remaining seven matches were lost. Nonetheless, a minimal ascending shape curve was evident, although it was canceled out by the two bitter failures in Wolfsburg (0: 2) and at home against Schalke (1: 3). In front of a home crowd, Mario Gomez and Co. presented themselves absolutely competitive, which underpinned the eminently important successes against Hertha (2: 1) and Augsburg (1: 0). Because the experienced coach had time over the winter break to implement his own ideas better in the minds of the players and physically are also quite some progress can be seen, the Swabians is a home win against outwardly weak Mainz in any case daring.
The quality in the squad exists and thanks to the injected self-confidence as well as the home advantage, a tip for proper odds on the home win could pay off between VfB Stuttgart and Mainz. French World Champion Benjamin Pavard, whose move to FC Bayern will take place next summer, is still in the build-up after losing his ribbeam and will miss it. Andreas Beck and newcomer Steven Zuber are questionable. Should the former Hoffenheim fail, Alexander Esswein would be the only new player in the starting eleven.

Expected formation of VfB Stuttgart:
Zieler – Ascacibar, Baumgartl, Kempf, Sosa – Gentner, Aogo – Esswein, Thommy – Zuber – M. Gomez

Last matches of VfB Stuttgart:
11.01.2019 – Cercle Bruges vs. VfB Stuttgart 2: 2 (friendly)
06.01.2019 – VfB Stuttgart vs. Germany Utrecht 2: 3 (friendly)
22.12.2018 – VfB Stuttgart vs. Germany Schalke 1: 3 (Bundesliga)

15.12.2018 – VfB Stuttgart vs. Germany Hertha 2: 1 (Bundesliga)

Mainz – Statistics & Current Form

Probably only a few experts would have given the FSV Mainz 05 such a satisfying first round. The Rheinhessen, who were still deep in the relegation battle in the previous year, not only collected solid 21 points, but also built a seven-counter pad on the relegation place. If the team of coach Sandro Schwarz on Saturday afternoon in the Mercedes-Benz Arena even retract a threesome, the issue of ‘relegation’ could initially be shelved. In the case of a defeat, however, the supposedly comfortable lead shrinks together. Before the winter break, the FSV presented itself as a very uncomfortable opponent, who drew considerable draws against Eintracht Frankfurt (2: 2) or TSG Hoffenheim (1: 1). Nonetheless, the Red and Whites of the past six Bundesliga games have just cheered on a single threesome. Nevertheless, it was clear to those responsible for Sport Director Rouven Schröder at an early stage that the existing squad did not have to be thinned out in the winter or had to be supplemented selectively. There is thus satisfaction around the old Bruchweg. Exactly this first approach of a certain well-being could unconsciously lead to the fact that on Saturday in the duel VfB Stuttgart against Mainz the prognosis contrary to the previous results, in favor of the worse-placed Swabians, fails.

As already mentioned, the Mainz were primarily in the stranger many points. In eight away games hailed it for the 05er four defeats. Two guest performances each ended with a full sense of achievement or a division of points. Particularly interesting is the fact that the Rheinhessen always conceded at least one goal and were generally stable at home and scoring more goals. Small Fun-Fact on the edge: In eleven Bundesliga away games in Stuttgart Mainz has never conceded without conceding. In this respect, the trend-setting encounter between VfB Stuttgart and Mainz would have been an appropriate tip on the “Both Teams to Score” an alternative, although the odds here promise a lower subjective value. Rene Adler, Karim Onisiwo, Danny Latza, Emil Berggreen and youngster Jonathan Burkhardt have to pass due to injury. It does not seem unlikely that the almost euphoric Mainzians are going to be too confident (offensive) in this match and therefore allow the home side rooms, which will exploit these in front of home scenery.

Expected formation of Mainz:

F. Müller – Brosinski, Bell, Niakhaté, Aaron – Customer – Gbamin, Ri. Baku – Boetius – Mateta, Quaison

Last matches of Mainz:
12.01.2019 – Mainz vs. Germany Freiburg 2: 2 (friendly)

VfB Stuttgart vs. Mainz Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights

23 matches were delivered to the two clubs in the highest German league. The Swabians are still leading the direct comparison with nine wins. Mainz could, however, equalize with an away three at the weekend. In front of their own fans, the Swabians have hardly lost out to the Rheinhessen, as seven of the eleven home matches have been won (two draws, two defeats). However, the youngest two direct duels, including the first leg, went to the FSV. However, three wins in a row against VfB Mainz never get.

VfB Stuttgart vs. Mainz Tips & Prediction

Although the guest from Rheinhessen is placed better in the ranking and mediated the better impression over the Swabians throughout the first half of the season, on Saturday VfB Stuttgart against Mainz is according to the odds as a favorite in the direct duel on the 18th matchday. The pure numbers offer no real incentive to place bets in the direction of the hosts. Of course, other, more subjective factors also play a role in our VfB Stuttgart – Mainz prediction.

Key facts – VfB Stuttgart vs. Mainz tip

Stuttgart won two of the last three home games
Mainz conceded in all eleven appearances in Stuttgart always at least one goal
Does FSV satisfaction lead to stagnation of performance?

For example, we assume that the Stuttgart meticulously worked on the weaknesses in the winter break and therefore come back stronger. In front of home crowd celebrated the table-16. two wins in the last three games. In addition, the Mainz could only win two of their eight away games this season. The FSV caught at least one goal in all eleven appearances in the Bundesliga in the former Gottlieb Daimler stadium and will probably also get problems on Saturday. We decide between VfB Stuttgart and Mainz for a tip on home win and risk four units.

Umraniyespor vs Fenerbahce Betting Tips & Predictions 17 Jan 2019

Umraniyespor vs Fenerbahce Football Betting Predictions

A rather mixed calendar year ended recently for the “canaries” from Istanbul. After a, according to the performance, downright roller coaster ride was sensationally secured in the last season, the second place in the table and elected a new club president with Ali Koc, the whole euphoria but already fizzled at the beginning of the new competitive season. Fenerbahce could not really get into this season and played the worst part of the club’s history. It would never be possible for the traditional club from Istanbul to spend the winter in a relegation zone – but now Fener is in 17th place. The only hope? The new coach Ersun Yanal, who should bring the team back on track. If Fenerbahce should get the Turkish Cup, but the miserable season could be ended at least with a title and a Europa League start right. In a still long cup way is the round of 16 round against Ümraniyespor on Thursday night.
Paying off with Ümraniyespor against Fenerbahce could be a tip on the away win with odds of 1.50. The “canaries” had enough time to prepare for the upcoming second half of the winter break. Before the first round of the first leg, the course for the quarter-finals will be set in the first leg. Second division Ümraniyespor meanwhile struggles in the league for promotion to the Süper Lig. The team of Ahmet Tasyürek can certainly be classified as home strong. Unfortunately, the Pokalhinspiel does not take place in Ümraniye, but in Esenyurt, as the hosts can not play the match at home due to lack of floodlights. Whether the second division in the cup first leg can surprise the “canaries”? On Thursday evening, the first knockout round first leg between Ümraniyespor and Fenerbahce in the “Türkiye Kupasi”!

Ümraniyespor – Statistics & Current Form

Ümraniyespor enters the new calendar year with coach Ahmet Tasyürek, after the paths of Ümraniye split up with coach Ismet Tasdemir shortly before the end of the year. As the fourth in the table, Ümraniyespor will once again be promoted to the Süper Lig this season. Already last year the promotion to the TFF 1st Lig Playoffs was missed. Whether this year under Tasyürek for promotion to the highest Turkish league will be enough, shows in the course of the second half. Ümraniyespor was the second strongest home team of the second Turkish league in the last season. This season Ümraniye is well in front of home crowd, the more it Tasyürek on the move to move the cup first leg to another stadium. Because Ümraniyespor does not have enough floodlights at home, the game had to be relocated to another stadium, the Esenyurt Necmi Kadioglu Stadium. Whether or not Ümraniyespor vs. Fenerbahce will pay off for a surprise home win by home side hosts remains somewhat questionable under the current circumstances, especially as it will be an away game for both sides.
Since Tasyürek coach at Ümraniye, the currently fourth in the table of the second Turkish league, drew, a victory and a significant cup slag in the third division 1461 Trabzon. At home win over Afyonspor to the first round end of the performance of the Tasyürek-Elf against the table penultimate was not very good. A similar performance against Fenerbahce could cost Umraniye dearly, especially since the starting leg should ensure a good starting position. Leandrinho is the top scorer in Ümraniyespor’s current squad. The Brazilian made seven goals in his 18 appearances. Previously active with Sivasspor and Karabükspor, the 32-year-old arrives at his third stop in Turkey. Offensively, there were no outstanding performances this season. In 17 league games Ümraniye scored 20 goals, 13 of them in front of home crowd. Away, Ümraniyespor have already scored points this season, considering how weak the team was on unfamiliar terrain last season. In the end, however, Ümraniyespor is to be rated weaker than in the previous year and will at least be felt during the course of the season. Ümraniyespor has conceded at least one goal for six matches (cross-competition). Most recently, there was a 1: 3 defeat in the Cup against Trabzon, which was not expensive due to the clear home victory of the Tasyürek-Elf. In Ümraniyespor against Fenerbahce a tip on the home side to place, would be ventured after recent performances well.

Expected formation of Ümraniyespor:
Ogur; Albayrak, Appindangoye, Tekdal, Ceylan; Altintas, Goksu; Temeltas, Vasilogiannis, Madinda; Leandrinho

Last Games of Umraniyespor:
22.12.2018 – Ümraniyespor Vs. Afyonspor 2: 1 (1st Lig)
18.12.2018 – 1461 Trabzon Vs. Ümraniyespor 3: 1 (Cup)
14.12.2018 – Istanbul vs. Ümraniyespor 1: 1 (1st Lig)
09.12.2018 – Ümraniyespor Vs. Elazigspor 2: 1 (1st Lig)

Fenerbahce – Statistics & Current Form

New year, new luck – Fenerbahce wants to regain its old strength and secured the services of former coach Yanal shortly before the end of the year. Ersun Yanal is now to bring his team back on the victory track and leave a relegated rank as quickly as possible. After the misunderstanding with Cocu the championship is over this season, also a starting place for the European competition is far away. But Fenerbahce can at least secure the Turkish Cup as a consolation prize. In the round of 16, Fenerbahce will face second division side Ümraniyespor and will make their first move towards the quarter-finals in the first leg. Before the Süper Lig starts again at the weekend, Ersun Yanal wants to celebrate his first victory of the new year. In the Süper Lig, Bursaspor is not a pleasant opponent to the “canaries”. In the cup debut in this year’s Türkiye Kupasi traditional club Fener continued without major problems against second division Giresunspor on. Ersun Yanal will certainly give some youngsters the chance to prove themselves in the cup, but in the end Fenerbahce are under pressure and could possibly only secure a starting right for the European competition via the Turkish Cup. Accordingly, the “canaries” will also want to present in the cup first leg.
In the winter break Fenerbahce has not strengthened much. The transfers are still pending, and many followers are waiting for new entries. So far, Fenerbahce could only secure the services of Sadik Ciftpinar, who should provide on the defensive in a duo with Skrtel for more stability. Ciftpinar is a significant reinforcer on the defensive with his strength in the head and will probably always be in the lead with standards. Ersun Yanal prefers an offensive style of play and will adjust his team accordingly in the new calendar year. Even in his first games as a Fenerbahce coach, the “canaries” had shown good results. In the duel against Antalyaspor, the offensive dominance of Fenerbahce was rewarded with no goal, accordingly, there was “only” a draw. In the friendly against AZ Alkmaar, Fenerbahce secured a victory after a peat festival and start the euphoric New Year. It remains to be seen, however, how the system has changed under Yanal and whether the players in the squad can adapt quickly to it. The manuscript of Yanal could already be read in the first three games. With the winter break in the back there was enough time for regeneration. There is probably nothing in Ümraniyespor against Fenerbahce against a tip on the guests.

Expected formation of Fenerbahce:
Tekin; Isla, Ciftpinar, Skrtel, Kaldirim; Topal; Benzia, Elmas, Kadioglu, Valbuena; Frey

Last matches of Fenerbahce:
11.01.2019 – Fenerbahce vs. AZ Alkmaar 3: 2 (Club Friendlies)
24.12.2018 – Antalyaspor Vs. Fenerbahce 0: 0 (Süper Lig)
20.12.2018 – Giresunspor Vs. Fenerbahce 2: 5 (Cup)
17.12.2018 – Fenerbahce vs. BB Erzurum 2: 2 (Süper Lig)
13.12.2018 – Spartak Trnava vs. Fenerbahce 1: 0 (Europa League)

Ümraniyespor Vs. Fenerbahce Turkey Direct Comparison

Ümraniyespor and Fenerbahce will meet for the first time in their club history in a competitive match. Previously, in 2016/17 there was a friendly match between the two clubs, in which Fenerbahce secured a 4-2 victory.

Our Betting Prediction Analyzed Ümraniyespor vs Fenerbahce

In Ümraniyespor against Fenerbahce a prognosis in favor of the hosts is probably rather a wishful thinking. Ümraniye is a strong home team and nobody questions that. In this case, Tasyürek’s team will not be able to play at home. Thus, it is for Ümraniyespor and Fenerbahce in a way an away game. Although the away team is on solid territory this season, that does not mean that the team is even as strong as it was at home. The main focus of Tasyürek is on the rise in the Süper Lig. What can be taken in the cup everything in prestige successes, is good for the self-confidence, on the big coup thinks in the team but no one.

Key Facts – Ümraniyespor Vs. Fenerbahce predictions

Ümraniye had due to lack of floodlights the game relocated to another stadium (other city).
Both teams will thus play the cup first leg on foreign territory.
Fenerbahces possibly the only chance to secure a right to start the European competition, is to win the Turkish Cup or at least to reach the Cup final.

In Ümraniyespor against Fenerbahce, the odds for an away win seem promising. Fenerbahce is catastrophic in the Süper Lig and wants to compensate for the bad season at national level, at least with a cup success. Ersun Yanal exudes optimism and was able to convince in his first games as a Fenerbahce coach. The results were not very good, but the performance on the pitch was right. After the winter break Fenerbahce should not give up in the cup first leg against Ümraniyespor and win. We would recommend Ümraniyespor against Fenerbahce a tip on the guests, in which we choose – including, inter alia, the transfer of the game to another stadium – a use of eight units.
