Stuttgart take on the visitors RB Leipzig in the round 1 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Sunday, August 7th at Mercedes-Benz Arena (Stuttgart).
Stuttgart managed to survive in the last championship in the Bundesliga. "Schwab" in 2021/2022 spent a fairly classic "2nd season" in the elite division of the country. It turned out to be difficult for a beginner, but, most importantly, the board retained confidence in the mentor, Pellegrino Matarazzo, and he was able to collect enough points to take the “saving” 15th place. True, this was achieved by defeating Cologne in the last round. Moreover, Endo scored the decisive ball in the 2nd added minute. Since then, several important players have left the squad, including defender Mangala who moved to Nottingham Forest a week ago. He was not really replaced directly, although there are good newcomers - defender Vanoman and striker Juan José Pereira.

RB Leipzig starts first full season under Domenico Tedesco. The "Bulls" released or rather sold Nagelsmann to Bayern a year ago. The coach also took Zabitzer and Upamecano with him. Julian was replaced by Jesse Marsh - and the American failed. And only then did the ex-mentor of Moscow Spartak appear in Leipzig. And he coped not only with the main task, finishing with his wards in the “League Champion zone” of the Bundesliga, but also managed to win the cup, the first significant trophy for an ambitious project. A slightly renewed team (sold Adams and Mukiel, not to mention Brobby and Hwan, who did not play in Germany, acquired Schlager and Raum) began the new season with a confrontation with Bayern for the Super Cup. And in a very bright duel, they still lost to the champion 3-5.
In total, 8 matches were played between the clubs. And in them, Stuttgart was able to take only 1 draw, keeping 0-0 in March 2018. All other games ended in RB Leipzig victories, including 4-0 and 2-0 in the previous Bundesliga season. It is unlikely that Stuttgart are now ready to reverse the trend - it is clearly weaker than the opponents. We recommend betting on what ambitious visitors will win.
Prediction for the match: RB Leipzig to win.
