Stuttgart vs Borussia Dortmund
KICK OFF: Saturday 20th Oct 2018 | 15:30 CET
BUNDESLIGA WK8 | Mercedes-Benz Arena
The hosts are at the foot with high-flying visitors leading the charts. Stuttgart has no chance against Dortmund
Stuttgart have won just once this season (versus 10-man Bremen), and there’s a little to suggest they can pick the second win against the league leaders. They have only kept one clean sheet against newly promoted Dusseldorf, conceding in all the other six games so far. Can they stop Dortmund in this one? Unlikely!
Borussia Dortmund will be looking to extend their lead at the top by brushing aside the visitors in style. Paco Alcacer is expected to spearhead their attack and continue his magnificent goal-scoring form. Forwards Marco Reus, Phillip, Pulisic, and Sancho have all made positive starts this season. Englishman Sancho, in particular, has taken Bundesliga by storm with his six assists in just seven games.
Goals are a certainty for Dortmund, though they haven’t kept a clean sheet in 71% of their games. The visitors will be too strong for Stuttgart on this occasion and backing another high-scoring Dortmund win looks a sure bet.
