Despite their unconvincing form, VfB Stuttgart stand a good chance of adding three more points to their account in round 10. They face Bochum this coming Saturday, and they'll be disappointed to miss out on a win at Mercedes-Benz Arena. The match ended in a 1-1 draw in the previous outing between VfB Stuttgart and Bochum and should we get another draw, the bookies best price are at 3.80.

The current difference in the Bundesliga standings between the two teams clashing at Mercedes-Benz Arena this coming Saturday is just a single point.

Bochum will not be short on motivation for their clash with the match favourites VfB Stuttgart. Although the odds are against them, a narrow win this coming Saturday will see them move ahead of their upcoming opponents in the table.

VfB Stuttgart only average a modest 1.1 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 11 goals. They also conceded 15 for an average of 1.5 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring one times.

Bochum travel to their next Bundesliga match, averaging a lowly one goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of ten goals, while also conceding 26 goals. That amounts to an average of 2.6 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring one times.

VfB Stuttgart vs Bochum Prediction

VfB Stuttgart form

In their last three matches, VfB Stuttgart lost 1-3 against Eintracht, 3-2 against Wolfsburg and 0-1 against Union Berlin. VfB Stuttgart claimed just a single measly home win from a possible six in the Bundesliga, which also saw them drawing two and losing three matches, in which they scored five and conceded eight goals.

A mid-table finish seemed likely for VfB Stuttgart but in current form they could be dragged into a relegation battle.

Bochum Form

In their last three matches, Bochum drew 1-1 with FC Koln, lost 4-0 against RB Leipzig and beat Eintracht 3-0. Bochum claimed just one win from the last six away games in the Bundesliga. They also drew zero and were defeated five times, as they were outscored by 17 goals to nine.

Bochum were hoping to avoid relegation this season, but their current dismal form has them on course for going down.

VfB Stuttgart disappointingly lost their last two matches, but in front of their supporters at Mercedes-Benz Arena, they will kick back and book a much-needed win.

VfB Stuttgart won one points from their last two encounters with teams from the bottom six, like their upcoming opponent. They won zero, scored three and let in four goals. Bochum claimed zero wins from one goals scored and three conceded from their past one matches against teams placed in the bottom six. This handed them zero points to their account.
