VfB Stuttgart

VfB Stuttgart vs Bayern Munich

, KO: 14:30 May 4, 2024, MPHArena
Bayern Munich

It is third against second in the Bundesliga as VfB Stuttgart welcome Bayern Munich to MHPArena on Saturday. It is also a battle between the leading scorers in the league and with neither team looking particularly solid at the back, goals could be expected here.

Stuttgart have plenty of reasons to be pleased with their campaign this season and they are set to secure a Champions League finish. They played out a 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen in their previous Bundesliga fixture, throwing away a two-goal lead from Chris Fuhrich and Deniz Undav.

Having been on the road in the last two weeks, Stuttgart are returning to MPHArena which has tasted just one defeat all season. However, Sebastian Hoeness’ men are often unconvincing at the back, conceding in five of their last eight home matches.

Bayern Munich may have lost their Bundesliga title but are still showing some good form, winning their last three matches. They claimed a 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt last time out, with Harry Kane netting a brace.

The Bavarians have been a bit erratic on their travels lately but have won two of their last three away matches. Those two wins have been one-sided results as Thomas Tuchel’s men claimed a 5-2 victory at Darmstadt and a 5-1 win at Union Berlin.

How the bookies view it: Bavarians considered outsiders

VfB Stuttgart have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 11/10 by William Hill to claim the win. A victory for Bayern Munich is valued at 21/10 by BetVictor while BoyleSports is offering 3/1 for a draw.

Head to head: Bayern generally come out on top in this fixture

Bayern Munich have a 74-19 advantage with 22 draws from 115 previous matches against Stuttgart. The Bavarians have also won the last two meetings and claimed a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December with Harry Kane netting a brace.

Players to watch: Undav and Guirassy to trouble Bayern defence

Serhou Guirassy and Deniz Undav have formed a potent attacking partnership for Stuttgart, scoring 25 and 18 goals respectively. Guirassy is priced at 19/20 by William Hill to score anytime while Undav, who has found the net in four of the last five matches, is priced at 5/4 by Unibet in the same market.

As Always Harry Kane will be the one to watch for Stuttgart and looks to add to his 35 Bundesliga goals this season. The striker netted a brace in the reverse fixture and is priced at 5/4 by bet365 to get on the score sheet once again.

Probable lineups

Stuttgart are not expected to make too many changes and may stick with the same team that faced Bayer Leverkusen. Given his injury problems, Leroy Sane may be rested for the Champions League second leg at Real Madrid, although Harry Kane may retain his place as he chases the Bundesliga scoring record.

VfB Stuttgart: Nobel, Stergiou, Ito, Mittelstadt, Anton, Karazor, Millot, Llewelling, Fuhrich, Guirassy, Undav
Bayern Munich: Neuer, Davies, Dier, Upamecano, Kimmich, Pavlovic, Laimer, Gnabry, Musiala, Tel, Kane

Anything else catch the eye? Attacks to shine in open encounter

There is plenty of attacking quality on both sides and given their vulnerable backline, goals could be expected here. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 5/2 by BetVictor, who is also offering 21/20 for over 2.5 goals.

A fast start is expected on Saturday, so both teams could be backed to score in the first half at 9/4 with William Hill.
