Stuttgart hosts RB Leipzig in round 19 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, January 15th at Mercedes-Benz Arena (Stuttgart)
It looks like Stuttgart did not benefit from the winter break. Such a conclusion suggests itself from what the team showed in the last round. I remind you that the Swabians failed to beat Greuther Furth away (0-0). Thus, they failed to score a single goal in the third match in a row. During this period, they managed to earn only one point. Now Stuttgart is in 15th place in the standings, with only 18 points scored. It is noteworthy that Augsburg from the relegation zone also has 18 points. However, the Fuggers have worse additional indicators. Stuttgart has earned 11 points in nine home matches of the current season. All home results of Pellegrino Matarazzo's men look like this: three victories, two draws, and four defeats with a goal difference of 16-18. Seven out of nine games ended with Over 2.5 goals scored.

On January 8, RB Leipzig was stronger than Mainz at home (4-1). We can say that 2022 started well for the Red Bulls. However, one victory was not enough to radically change their position in the standings. I remind you that now RB Leipzig has 25 points and takes 9th place. The gap to the Champions League zone is five points. Andre Silva showed himself well in the last game, scoring two goals. The Portuguese has already upset the opponents’ goalkeepers seven times in the current Bundesliga. RB Leipzig can boast of high production. The team has already scored 34 goals (23 goals conceded). Only Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, and Hoffenheim scored more. Matches on foreign pitches are hard for the Red Bulls. They have not gained a single victory so far: four draws and four defeats with a goal difference of 5-10.
In the first round, RB Leipzig did not leave any chances for Stuttgart at home (4-0). Seven out of nine previous home matches of the Swabians ended with an exchange of goals scored. Stuttgart cannot boast of good statistics in the current season. But the team shows a fairly high level of football at the home stadium. After all, the Swabians earned most of their points on the home pitch. I think they can claim at least a draw this weekend. What about the visitors? Previously, they looked very bad at foreign stadiums (four draws and four defeats). It is difficult to even imagine what they will show now.
Prediction for the match: Stuttgart to win with +0.5 handicap
