Borussia Dortmund v VFB Stuttgart Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 1st November 2013

Borussia Dortmund are having a good start to their new campaign and sit just 1 point behind current league leaders Bayern Munich and the manager and players will be fully aware that if they can continue putting in the performances on the pitch then they will still be in with a big chance of winning their 9th Bundesliga Title.

VFB Stuttgart are having an average start to their new season and it does seem that Thomas Schneider’s side are finding it very difficult to win games recently having managed just one victory in their last five played. However, they do remain unbeaten during those matches and although this is a huge test for them, they will be confident of returning home with at least something from this game on friday night.

Borussia Dortmund Team News:

Ilkay Gundogan and Lukasz Grobkruetz are still recovering from respective injuries and remain unavailable for the hosts along with defender Koray Gunter who is serving a suspension. 4-2-3-1 is the likely formation that manager Jürgen Klopp will deploy that will see Robert Lewandowski leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Aubameyang, Reus and Mkhitaryan.

Lewandowski and Aubameyang are the clubs current top goalscorers so far this season with 6 each.

Friday night’s game from the Signal-Iduna-Park will become the 91st meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Borussia Dortmund have won 29 times, VFB Stuttgart have won 38 times and there has been 23 draws.

The head to head statistics table below shows the last 5 matches played between the two sides and as you can see from the data below there really has not been much to seperate them with Borussia Dortmund having won 1 and the other 4 matches having all ended all square.

Average Goals Per Game?

290 goals have been scored during the previous 90 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.22 which suggests we should see at least a few goals bulge the back of the nets on friday night.

Borussia Dortmund v VFB Stuttgart Recent Form (Last 5 Games – Left to Right)

Borussia Dortmund: W L W W W

VFB Stuttgart: L W D D D

Borussia Dortmund have the clear advantage on the recent form stats having managed to win 4 of their previous 5 matches played. VFB Stuttgart have struggled during their last 5 games managing to win just 1, although they have only been defeated once during this period the same as their hosts.

Borussia Dortmund v VFB Stuttgart Match Betting Odds Market.

Borussia Dortmund have only lost one game so far this season and remain unbeaten at Signal-Iduna-Park, so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts priced up as the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 2/7 with Ladbrokes (£30 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw might be worth covering with a small wager at a current best price of 11/2 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) as VFB Stuttgart do seem to be the ‘Draw Specialists’ in the league at the moment.

VFB Stuttgart would have to have their best performance of the season so far to stand any chance of winning this game and with a few of their top players still out with injury I just can’t see it happening just yet, so I can’t see much interest from punters on their current odds of 11/1 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Borussia Dortmund v VFB Stuttgart Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This should be another straight forward victory for Borussia Dortmund here and with Lewandowski and Aubameyang having scored 12 times between them so for this season I am expecting both of these players to possibly add to their tally on friday night in front of their home fans.

VFB Stuttgart could get something from the game if they had their full squad available, but with a few key players still out with injury I can’t honestly see them troubling Dortmund in this one and I am expecting the hosts to win this game by at least a couple of clear goals on the night.

The goal stats suggest a few goals to grace the nets, so betting markets like Anytime Goalscorer, Over 2.5 Goals and Half Time/Full Time all look tempting propositions depending on the odds.
