Bayern Munich’s advantage at the top of the standings was extended to six points over the weekend, and they will be looking to turn the screw further this week as they travel to Stuttgart on Tuesday evening.
It has been a strong start to the Bundesliga season by Bayern Munich, and they already look to have a huge advantage in the title race. The Bavarian giants lead by six points after 15 rounds of fixtures, and that advantage could be increased yet again with a victory on Tuesday evening. Bayern won for the third game running at the weekend to extend their advantage over Borussia Dortmund, who could only play out a draw.
Dortmund’s two-game winless run, coupled with back-to-back wins for Bayern has seen the gap extended at the top two. Bayern are also currently ten clear of third-placed Bayer Leverkusen. The Bavarians were made to work hard to extend their title lead, as they came up against a resilient Mainz on Saturday. The visitors took the lead, but eventually Bayern were able to snatch maximum points with two goals in the second half. Jamal Musiala eventually scored the winning goal with just over 15 minutes of the 90 remaining.
It has been a tough start to the season for Stuttgart, as they currently find themselves towards the bottom of the standings. They have won four times this season.
Only the teams in the bottom two places have picked up fewer wins at present. They are just a point outside of the relegation playoff spot, but six from the automatic spots in the league. However, they come into this fixture having gone three without a defeat, as they picked up a second win in three games at the weekend against Wolfsburg.
Stuttgart vs Bayern Munich Head to Head
Bayern have picked up four straight wins against Stuttgart, while the hosts in this fixture have won just once in the last 18 meetings between the sides. Bayern have scored at least three gals in each of the last four meetings, which includes the 4-0 win that they recorded back in March.
Stuttgart vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Bayern Munich should take the points in this fixture on Tuesday evening, as they have been in fine form at both ends of the field in recent weeks. Stuttgart have been in decent form themselves, but this is a much more difficult assignment.
