VfB Stuttgart vs Bayern MunichGerman Bundesliga, KO: 17:30 Dec 14, 2021, Mercedes-Benz Arena
Bayern Munich are aiming to continue their impressive winning run when they travel to Stuttgart for a midweek Bundesliga fixture. Stuttgart have looked revitalised in recent weeks but face a difficult task against the in-form champions.
After a solid 2020/21 campaign, Stuttgart have struggled to recapture that level this term and sit 16th on the table, just one point above the bottom three. They have put together a few positive results in recent weeks and are unbeaten in their last three matches.
Stuttgart head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 2-0 victory over Wolfsburg last time out in the Bundesliga. Kostas Mavropanos opened the scoring midway through the first half while Philipp Forster added the second after the break.
Despite showing signs of life lately, Stuttgart’s home form still needs a bit of work. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men have claimed just one win from their last four matches at the Mercedes-Benz Arena with a 1-0 defeat to struggling Arminia Bielefeld in that run.
Bayern Munich were made to work hard before seeing off Mainz in their previous Bundesliga fixture. Julian Naglesmann’s men fought back from a goal down with second half efforts from Kingsley Coman and Jamal Musiala earning them a 2-1 victory.
That result extended Bayern Munich’s lead at the top of the table to six points as they continue to cruise to a comfortable title defence. The champions are currently on a five-match winning run across all competitions.
Bayern Munich also have a good record on their travels and have lost just one away match all season. Some of their biggest wins have come on the road, including a 5-1 victory at Bayer Leverkusen while they also triumphed 5-2 over Union Berlin.
