VfB Stuttgart vs Hertha BSC tips and odds

Hertha BSC have taken just one point from their last three Germany. Bundesliga matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Hertha BSC are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions VfB Stuttgart should prove no easy feat either – Hertha BSC haven’t won against any Germany. Bundesliga leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

VfB Stuttgart have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. VfB Stuttgart dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Germany. Bundesliga’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

VfB Stuttgart are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about VfB Stuttgart and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in VfB Stuttgart’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Hertha BSC are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Hertha BSC took a point away from VfB Stuttgart (1-1 draw).

Notably, VfB Stuttgart’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. VfB Stuttgart have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Germany. Bundesliga away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Hertha BSC, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Hertha BSC getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Hertha BSC are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), VfB Stuttgart hold the best away record in the Germany. Bundesliga (W8 D2 L1). Hertha BSC’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with VfB Stuttgart’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the VfB Stuttgartns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 VfB Stuttgart win at 15/2 with bet365.
