In the 14th round in German Bundesliga VfB Stuttgart host Schalke 04.
VfB Stuttgart play very bad this season and that’s the reason why they are in the relegation zone. The club had decided to make some changes, so last 10 days ago they appointed Huub Stevens as a new coach, who started very good and in his first match VfB Stuttgart smashed Freiburg 1-4.
In the match against Schalke 04, VfB Stuttgart coach Huub Stevens will debut at home field and everyone expect good result.
Niedermeier (5/0 d), Abdellaoue (0/0 f) and Ibisevic (7/0 f) are still out, so other worries about injured and suspended players.
Schalke 04 play very solid this season. They are standing at the 6th position in Bundesliga, while in the Champions league they still have a chance to go through.
The visitors are facing with many problems with injured players from the beginning of the season. The list of injured players is longer now.
Giefer (0/0 gk), Felipe Santana (2/0 d), Kolasinac (1/0 d), Matip (6/1 d), Boateng (7/0 m), Obasi (6/0 m), Sam (7/0 m), Draxler (8/2 m), Goretzka (0/0 m), Höger (11/0 m) and Farfan (0/0 m) are all out.
For four days Schalke 04 will play against Maribor in the last group match in UEFA Champions League and they need three points in that match (in the second match in that group, Chelsea need to beat Sporting!) to go through in the next phase, so they will be more focused on that match.
I believe that home team could make a good result today and take all three points, but I’ll cover this betting tip with an Asian handicap.
VfB Stuttgart vs Schalke 04 Betting Tip: VfB Stuttgart +0 Ah @ 1.57 (Bet365)
