Stuttgart vs Mönchengladbach Preview
Stuttgart earned a point in a 1-1 draw away to Wolfsburg last weekend. Ex-Wolfsburg striker Mario Gomez rescued a point for his current club after Divock Origi gave the hosts the lead midway through the first half. That point is only their second point collected on the road this season and puts Stuttgart firmly at the bottom of the table on away form. Thankfully, they meet Mönchengladbach at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Sunday where they have picked up 19 points from a possible 30 and conceded just 7 goals all season. Their defensive record at home is currently the joint-best in the Bundesliga with Freiburg and is what has ultimately kept them out of the relegation zone. However, new Stuttgart manager Tayfun Korkut knows that the drop zone is just one point beneath them and will be desperate to pick up his first win in charge of the club and move them closer to safety.
Stuttgart’s defence should be given a boost with the return of Holger Badstuber from injury and Korkut is expected to field a more attacking side with the addition of Chadrac Akolo in midfield. He may also opt to play two up front, moving Daniel Ginczek alongside last weeks savior, Mario Gomez.
After a good start to the season, Mönchengladbach have hit a bad patch of form and have only managed to win once in 2018. While Stuttgart have managed good form at home recently, Mönchengladbach last lost their last four league games on the road, conceding eight and scoring just once. With Korkut expected to line his team up with attacking in mind, Mönchengladbach are going to have to find a solution to their goal drought if they aim to take home points from Sunday’s fixture.
It is unsure whether Raffael will recover from his calf injury in time for Sunday’s clash. If he doesn’t, Thorgan Hazard is expected to start up front again alongside German forward, Lars Stindl. Oscar Wendt is still injured and will miss the game which will give Nico Elvedi another start at left-back.

Stuttgart vs Mönchengladbach Prediction
This is a very tough game to call with both teams needing points for different reasons. Stuttgart’s home form will play a huge part on Sunday and the result may depend if Mönchengladbach can improve on their away goal record. We expect a battle at the Mercedes-Benz Arena and despite their positions in the league table, we wouldn’t be surprised to see an even game ending in a draw.
