VFB Stuttgart v FC Nuremberg Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 25th October 2013

Stuttgart head into this game having had a very topsy turvey start to their opening nine games of the Bundesliga season which has seen them win 3, lose 3 and draw 3 and Thomas Schneider’s side currently occupy 8th position in the league table.

However, their form in recent weeks has been more consistent as you have to go back to the 25th August to find their last defeat and with home advantage in this game on Friday night the players and fans will be confident of keeping their current unbeaten run going.

FC Nuremberg head into the match having had a very disappointing to start to their new campaign and are yet to win any of their opening nine games which have consisted of 6 draws and 3 defeats and with Gertjan Verbeek’s side only having won 2 games in the whole of 2013 it looks unlikely that statistic will change on Friday night at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena.

Antonio Rudiger is unavailable as he serves a 3 match suspension for being sent off in the 3-3 draw against Hamburger SV last time out. Daniel Didavi and Moritz Leitner continue to recover from respective injuries and also remain unavailable for the hosts.

4-2-3-1 looks the likely formation that manager Thomas Schneider will start the game with, which will see Ibisevic leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Harnik, Maxim and Taore. Striker Vedad Ibisevic is the clubs current top goalscorer so far this season with 6.

VFB Stuttgart have a slight advantage on the recent form stats having won 1 of their last 5 matches played, where as FC Nuremberg have not managed a single victory in their last 5 played.

VFB Stuttgart v FC Nuremberg Match Betting Odds Market.

VFB Stuttgart have started to become a lot more consistent with their results in recent weeks and with home advantage in this game they do look the more likely winners and can be backed at a current best price of 4/6 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) which for me looks very short indeed and doesn’t offer any real value in my opinion.

The Draw does however represent value at a current best price of 16/5 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) as with both sides having drawn a large number of their games already this season this could turn out to be the sensible play.

FC Nuremberg have only managed 2 victories since January 2013 and it really would come as a bit of a shock to see them add to that on friday night, however they have been tough to beat this season and will obviously give a good account of themselves in this game as well, but for me their current price of 9/2 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) doesn’t look like attracting much interest from punters with their poor record of winning games.

VFB Stuttgart v FC Nuremberg Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Everything suggests a home win here as FC Nuremberg do seem to have forgotten how to win games having secured just two victories in the last 10 months, but with the online bookmakers offering such a short price on the hosts that for me offer no value at all we are forced to look elsewhere.

The Draw could be worth a small interest as at a decent price and the amount of games both sides have drawn so far this season, this would not come as a much of a surprise to me for this game to finish all square on Friday night and could well be worth getting on as a saver.

However, I am going to go for VFB Stuttgart striker Vedad Ibisevic to continue his good form in front of goal and grab his 7th goal of the season in what could turn out to be a very close match.
