Stuttgart – Freiburg : Preview & Prediction
Stuttgart return to the Bundesliga this weekend. A second division resident in 2019-2020, the former club of Benjamin Pavard won the right to come back up by finishing second, after a season of calm. For their first of the season, the Matarazzo men host Freiburg, a solid eighth behind BuLi last year and narrowly falling short of a Europa League qualification.
A game between two teams with good dynamics, which however lost a number of key elements in the transfer window. On the Stuttgart side, for example, Kobel (starting goalkeeper last year), Stenzel (defensive pillar) and Endo (midfielder in 21 appearances) have left, when legend Mario Gomez retires well deserved. Similar situation in Freiburg, where titular goalkeeper Schwolow also left, as did striker Waldschmidt (7 goals last year).
A meeting between two teams who are still looking for each other, and which should, once is not customary, offer us a duel that is slightly less fluid than usual.
Stuttgart and Freiburg have lost many managerial players last year
In DFB Pokal a few days ago, the two clubs had less than 2 goals at the break.
Stuttgart are aiming for maintenance this season. Few risks will be taken in the first few moments.
With 5 changes allowed, the two coaches could focus on a first act under the sign of observation.
In this meeting between two teams lacking benchmarks, the first half should long remain in the observation phase on the lawn of the Mercedes-Benz Arena. -1.5 goals in the first period therefore, for this Bundesliga forecast.
