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

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)
