VfB Stuttgart are looking to boost their survival hopes when they host Borussia Dortmund in a Friday night Bundesliga fixture. They face a Dortmund side, who are seeking to avoid a third successive match without a win and have impressed on the road in recent weeks.

After a woeful run of nine matches without a win between December and February, Stuttgart are beginning to show signs of improvement. Peter Matarazzo’s men have claimed two wins and two draws from their last four Bundesliga matches.

Stuttgart head into Friday’s clash off the back of a 1-1 draw with Armenia Bielefeld in their previous Bundesliga fixture with Sasa Kalajdzic getting their goal. That string of recent results has seen them climb out of the relegation zone, although they are still only one point above the bottom three.

One problem for Stuttgart has been their defensive record as three of their last four matches have seen them come from behind to earn the result. Another problem is their record at home where they are winless in their last seven matches, suffering four defeats in that run.

Borussia Dortmund suffered a major blow to their slim hopes of winning the Bundesliga title as they went down 4-1 at home to RB Leipzig last time out. They were second best for much of the contest and fell three goals down before Donyell Malen struck a consolation late in the second half.

That result means Dortmund are now winless in their last two matches having been held to a 1-1 draw by Cologne in their previous fixture. Marco Rose’s men are now nine points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

Despite the results in their last two matches, Dortmund still travel to Stuttgart with a good record away from home. They are unbeaten in their last six Bundesliga matches on the road, claiming four wins in that run.

How the bookies view it

Borussia Dortmund have the upper hand among the bookies with an away win priced at 6/7 by SBK. A victory for Stuttgart is valued at 16/5 by Coral while a draw is set at odds of 3/1 by Paddy Power.

Recent head to head

Another reason for Dortmund to feel confident ahead of Friday's clash is that they have won five of the last six meetings with Stuttgart. They claimed a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture in November and have triumphed on their last two visits to Stuttgart.

Players to watch

Sasa Kalajdzic provided a timely boost for Stuttgart with his return from injury and has scored in three of his last four matches. The striker is priced at 21/10 by bet365 to get on the score sheet on Friday.

Erling Haaland is also working his way to full fitness for Dortmund following a spell on the sidelines with injury. The striker remains their top scorer with 16 goals and is priced at 7/10 by Betfred to find the net on Friday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Goals are to be expected on Friday as there has been over 3.5 goals in four of the last five matches between Stuttgart and Dortmund. A repeat is priced at 6/4 by SBK while the visitors could also be tipped to score in both halves at 6/4 with bet365.

Given Stuttgart’s penchant for going behind, Dortmund are likely to get the opener on Friday which means Erling Haaland could be tipped to be the first goalscorer at 12/5 with Betfred.
