Stuttgart vs FC Koln: Preview and Predictions
The derby of the lower part of the table will feature Stuttgart and FC Koln. The latter are rock-bottom after the horrendous start of the season, while Stuttgart were in the negative form prior to the international break and they will hope to turn the season around starting Friday.
Stuttgart have collected only seven points from the same number of matches so far. They are winless in the last three matches despite meeting with the average Bundesliga teams.
The lack of cutting edge remains Stuttgart’s main problem. Only seven goals added do not fulfill their aspirations and improving in the attack is Stuttgart’s primary goal.
The visitors reinforced their struggling attack with the veteran Claudio Pizarro. He scored has 430 Bundesliga appearances and 191 goals scored, which is the most goals scored out of all active players in the German top flight. The Peruvian is also the highest scoring foreign player in Bundesliga ever.
Koln are still glued to the bottom in both Bundesliga and UEFA Europa League. Next week, they will face BATE Borisov and will be looking for their first points in the second-best club competition this season.
VfB Stuttgart vs FC Koln: Head-to-head
The two sides share an extremely odd tradition. Ever since the 2000 season, neither of the two sides have managed to win a home match in the domestic league.
VfB Stuttgart vs FC Koln: Prediction
As previously mentioned, the visitors have reacquired the experienced striker, but it is questionable whether Pizarro is able to perform on the Bundesliga level. Both sides are in the dire need of points so we will most likely witness a cautious in the first half with both teams risking in the second period.
