Stuttgart managed to beat Freiburg in the last round, so with 16 points currently sit on the 8th position.
Before that they lost convincing to Borussia Dortmund and played three consecutive draws. They have scored on all previously games and have an average of 2 goals per match in this season. Vedad Ibisevic is the top scorer in the team with 8 goals so far. The midfielders Sercan Sararer and Daniel Didavi, the defender Arthur Boka, as so the striker Cacau will miss the match due to injuries. The defender Antonio Rudiger is under suspension.
Borussia Moenchengladbach have played solid in the last period and have four wins in the last five matches. They are on the 4th position, 10 points behind the leader Bayern Munich. In the last three rounds they played efficiently and scored 9 goals.Max Kruse is the top scorer in the team with 7 goals. The coach Lucien Favre can not count on injured defenders Roel Brouwers, Alvaro Dominguez, as so the midfielder Havard Nordtveit.
Two of the last three mutual matches ended with Over 2.5 goals. Here are the results:
14.04.2013. Stuttgart – B. Moenchengladbach 2:0
17.11.2012. B. Moenchengladbach – Stuttgart 1:2
29.01.2012. Stuttgart – B. Moenchengladbach 0:3
According to the current scoring form in both teams I expect a high scoring match with at least three goals.
