Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig - 16/02/2019

Stuttgart will face RB Leipzig at Mercedes-Benz Arena at German Bundesliga 22nd Round. Stuttgart against RB Leipzig is the match with big interest after their previous matches at German Bundesliga. Review our thoughts on this match here below. 

 

Stuttgart

Stuttgart this season is trying to reach the place over relegation zone, as now they are at a very risky position. The Reds already lost 14 matches and won only 4 matches. They are the team with the worst defense in Bundesliga, with 47 conceded goals, moreover, they also scored the least goals in the league. They are 3 points behind the 15 place and could probably be relegated to Bundesliga 2.

Some of the main players at Stuttgart will miss next match due to injuries, some young players were sent to other clubs by loan to gain experience and get more playing time.

This season Stuttgart has much more weaknesses than strengths. They are looking great at protecting the lead. However, they are very weak at finishing scoring chances, avoiding individual errors, defending against skillful players and stopping opponents from creating chances. Very likely that they will attempt crosses often, play width and take long shots.

 

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig now stands at 4th position in Bundesliga and have 11 wins out of 21 games. They are playing very stable football and are planning to save Champions League position this year, as they did not leave the group in the Europa League. Leipzig now can concentrate on reaching his maximum in Bundesliga and even go further.

In order to achieve the goal, this team has talented players, great form and tactics. Yussuf Poulsen and Tipo Werner are two young and skillful players with over 10 scored goals this season. They can even play against the strongest defense and score goals from different positions. Unfortunately, some of the main squad players will miss the next match. Most of all sorry for young talent central defender Dayot Upamecano.

This season RB Leipzig is great at creating chances through individual skill, creating scoring chances, aerial duels and stealing the ball from the opposition. Very likely that they will control the games, take a lot of shots, play width and aggressively.

 

H2H

During the last two season, teams met 3 times. At home, RB Leipzig won all two matches and did not concede. However, in last season they played in Stuttgart and had a draw without scoring goals.
