Despite the disparities in rank, expect a down the wire match from Stuttgart and Wolfsburg.

 

Stuttgart is rallying for survival while Wolfsburg is keen on keeping their Champions League berth.

 

Sitting on the 15th spot of the table, Die Roten maintains a 5-point lead against the relegated Hamburger SV. Although there are only 2 matches left, Stuttgart is somehow anticipating an upset between Hamburger SV and the Bavarians. Should this happen, their lead will be cut down to 2 and in one wrong move, they shall immediately lose their Bundesliga status.

 

Just recently, Stuttgart forced a crucial draw against Hannover 96. It marked its 4th undefeated streak in the competition and they can use this to generate positive results. Giving them more confidence is the fact that they have managed to score an average of 2 goals in their last 3 matches at home.

 

In as far as Wolfsburg is concerned, surely, they will not let such precious moment to slip. Bayer Leverkusen’s lead is easy to address. Their 2-point advantage means nothing to a determined soul such as Wolfsburg. Should they win and outrank Bayer, this does not only translate to a stronger finish, but also a guaranteed appearance in the Champions League next season.

 

On a closer look, Wolfsburg’s ambition is not impossible. A closer look into its current team form shows that they have been scoring an average of 2 goals in 5 of its last 6 matches. The club has also won in all the matches in which they have scored. In terms of their losses, the online betting favorite has only lost once in their recent encounters.

 

Prediction:  Wolfsburg
