VfB Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund (Bundesliga, 20.02.2015)

It’s Bundesliga redemption time for Borusia Dortmund who travel to Stuttgart, to face the last placed team, which is not them anymore. There’s a four points gap between the two teams, with the only difference being the fact that BVB are now on the 15th place. Speculations have been swimming around the fact that Klopp might want to rest his most important players prior to Champions League, but would that be the wisest choice when you face a team desperate for the three points?

During yesterday’s press conference Klopp put these rumours to rest: “We will field the best team against Stuttgart – I won’t rest anyone for the Juve match.” Stuttgart are unable to win against Dortmund in nine Bundesliga matches, the last one dating back to 2010. Moritz Leitner picked up an injury during training and is yet to be submitted to tests, while Gruezo returned yesterday to training with the team. Stuttgart were heading for a well-deserved draw against Hoffenheim only to see all crumbling down when Rudy scored a 93 minute winner. This result marked their second loss in a row after the 0-2 one against Bayern Munich.
Stuttgart-vs-Borussia-Dortmund-20-February-2015-prediction
Last season when the two teams met, Borussia Dortmund came from behind two goals to win with 3-2 and Marco Reus scored a hat-trick. This time around half the BVB team was hit with the flu virus, and Jürgen Klopp is unsure on which players he will be able to count for tomorrow’s match, with Durm, Hummels and Błaszczykowski being affected the hardest. Their most recent result is a 4-2 win over Mainz which gives the team confidence for the Stuttgart game even if Dortmund always saw it hard to win when playing at Mercedes Benz Arena.

Stuttgart have nothing to lose which means Harnik and Werner will be up against Aubameyang and Reus for the goals, all while starting with a four man defensive line and four midfielders with one player to make the connection between the two parts of the field. The bookmakers favor the visitors to win, mainly due to the fact that they are a Champions League team, a finalist while at that and need to win back the confidence. Unibet gives them 1.65 odds to win, Stuttgart got 5.30 and a draw has 3.90 odds. Both teams to score have 1.76 odds, over 2.5 goals has 1.75 odds, a Sokratis booking has 2.80 odds, a Romeu one 2.60 and a Moritz booking has 3.00 odds. We are going to bet 7 units on Marco Reus to score with 2.38 odds from Unibet.
