Hoffenheim were swept aside in a 3-1 reverse by Eintracht Frankfurt last week and it’s no surprise to see them priced as underdogs against highflying Stuttgart ahead of the weekend. The visitors strengthened their position in third with a routine 2-0 win over Union Berlin last time out and the bookies have given Stuttgart a 54.1% chance of winning again on Saturday.

Our latest predictions for Saturday’s clash also favour Stuttgart in the main, however, there are alternative German football tips and angles weigh up over on our betting insights page.

Player to watch – Serhou Guirassy

Serhou Guirassy is enjoying a career-best season for Stuttgart in 2023/24 and the prolific frontman managed to bag his 21st Bundesliga goal of the season in last weekend’s 2-0 win over Union Berlin.

Guirassy to strike again

Guirassy’s deadly finishing skills have been a major part of Stuttgart’s revival this season and the 28-year-old, who has been heavily linked with a move to Bayern Munich, found the net twice in his team’s last away match at Wolfsburg. Guirassy has scored eight times in seven away starts in the Bundesliga overall this term and he is likely to carry significant threat again on Saturday.
