            Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

            The game of significant importance this weekend in the Bundesliga could have an impact on the European places at the end of the season. Borussia Dortmund host VFB Stuttgart with both sides eager to end the campaign inside the top four. Neither side can afford to lose this game, as it would invite the likes of RB Leipzig into the top-four conversation.

            Date: 06/04/2024

            Location: Signal Iduna Park

            Kick-off: 17:30 pm

            Borussia Dortmund have enjoyed a moderately stable campaign in the Bundesliga this season as they currently sit fourth after 27 games played so far this season. Der BVB as they are known, missed out on the Bundesliga title last season after failing to secure the league at home to Mainz on the final day of the campaign. This allowed Bayern Munich to win their respective game thanks to a late winner from Jamal Musiala. Dortmund are on course at the moment to record another qualification in next year’s UEFA Champions League.

            The Black and Yellows as mentioned are fourth, having obtained 53 points from a possible 81 available to them this season. The hosts have averaged 1.96 points this season, which is a respectable points tally. Despite being cut adrift from the league leaders Bayer Leverkusen, Dortmund still competes in the UEFA Champions League in which a quarter-final clash against Atletico Madrid awaits them.

            Despite speculation regarding Edin Terzic’s future, his side have scored 55 goals in 27 games this season, which gives them a rough average of 2.1 goals scored per game. Defensively, Dortmund have conceded 32 in 27 games – conceding on average 1.18 goals per game.

            The hosts will be eager to repeat their performance from their recent game in Der Klassiker against Bayern Munich. A 2-0 win over Thomas Tuchel’s side effectively ended Bayern’s hopes of the title and provided their first win in this fixture since 2014.

            Borussia Dortmund are four points behind Stuttgart at present. A defeat could see the home side fall behind RB Leipzig in the league table due to Leipzig having a superior goal difference to Borussia Dortmund.

            As for VFB Stuttgart, they are enjoying a brilliant season as they are on course to reach the Champions League for the first time since the 2009/10 season – in which they reached the round of 16. After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, Stuttgart are third after 27 games played following their recent 3-3 draw with Heidenheim. Stuttgart are amongst one of the defensive teams in the league having conceded 34 in 27 as it currently stands. This makes them the fifth-best defence in the league.

            Should Stuttgart win this game over Borussia Dortmund, they could potentially move seven points clear at the end of the weekend should results fall in their favour. A win could draw them level on points with second place should Bayern Munich lose their respective game this weekend.

            The recent head-to-head fixtures between the two teams suggest that the game will be evenly contested between the two sides at Signal Iduna Park. In the last five games between the pair in all competitions, both sides have taken two wins and a draw from each other.

            Stuttgart has the upper hand this season, having won both the league and DFB Pokal games this season. The most recent league game was decided by a Serhou Guirassy penalty late on. Dortmund were last victorious over Stuttgart in 2022, where they ran out 5-0 winners. A certain Jude Bellingham was on hand with a brace that day.

            Borussia Dortmund will be without a few key players for this important clash with Stuttgart. Ramy Bensebaini is out with a ligament injury, and Gregor Kobel has stomach flu, so he remains a doubt. Winger Donyell Malen is suffering from thigh problems.

            Stuttgart are also missing several players ahead of the game against Dortmund. Dan Axel-Zagadou, Nikolas Nartey, Anthony Rouault, Atakan Karazor and Fabian Bredlow all look set to miss the game through injuries. Waldemar Anton and Maximillian Mittelstadt both are at risk of suspension.

            Recent form

            Borussia Dortmund will undoubtedly have great confidence in obtaining a win over Stuttgart based on their recent form. The Black and Yellows are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions – with three clean sheets in those five played.

            The hosts are unbeaten in their last two games at the Signal Iduna Park with their last defeat coming against Hoffenheim in a 3-2 loss. Their last home brought a comfortable 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt thanks to goals from Karim Adeyemi, Mats Hummels and Emre Can.

            In those five games played in all competitions, they have scored 11 goals – averaging 2.1 goals per game. On the defensive side of things, they have been very astute in this period. On average they have conceded only 0.4 goals per game, with three clean sheets as mentioned.

            Jadon Sancho will be eager to impress once again. The on-loan Manchester United midfielder has started to show signs of his former self in recent games. The England international has two goals in his last five games whilst contributing to other areas of the pitch.

            VFB Stuttgart heads into this game on the back of a disappointing 3-3 draw with Heidenheim, but, a successful spell away from home. The away side have won four from their last five away games in all competitions – the only defeat being against Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB Pokal.

            Their most recent away fixture brought home three points at Hoffenheim, thanks to goals from Enzo Millot, Serhou Guirassy and Jamie Leweling. Interestingly, Stuttgart has been unbeaten away from home in the league since January when they lost to VFL Bochum.

            Borussia Dortmund will be eager to keep Serhou Guirassy quiet during this game. The striker is Stuttgart’s top scorer with 22 goals in 20 games. Guirassy has scored in both games against Borussia Dortmund this season.
