Prediction: Stuttgart vs Freiburg – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

The first Baden-Schwaben derby of the season will take place on the third day of the Bundesliga season on Saturday afternoon Stuttgart welcome rivals Freiburg to the Mercedes-Benz-Arena.

The two teams experienced mixed fates last weekend, but all of this is being put aside to earn the surrender rights in the Baden-Württemberg region.


Prediction for this match

After the highlights of Greuther Fürth with 5: 1 in the opening game of the new Bundesliga season, the Stuttgart were brought back to the ground with a crash last weekend, as this time they were the opposite side of a hammer – a 4-0 away defeat at RB Leipzig.

Manager Pellegrino Matarazzo will want to quickly erase memories of last week and this weekend he has the perfect opportunity to do so by beating local rivals.

Matarazzo only seems to have had success with his team during his tenure so far. After leading Stuttgart to promotion to the Bundesliga in 2019-20, he followed in the first season last season with an impressive ninth place.

Before Greuther Fürth hit in the first league game of the season, Stuttgart had defeated BFC Dynamo 6-0 in the first round of the DFB Cup.

Therefore, Matarazzo’s men surely already know how to find the net this season and hope that the defeat against title challenger Leipzig was only a minor slip in their season.

Now they want to return the favor on Saturday against their rivals who were beaten in both league games last season but won the DFB Cup 1-0.

Jonathan Schmid from SC Freiburg will celebrate his first goal with his teammates on August 8, 2021

While the hosts come to the derby after a massive defeat, Freiburg comes to the Mercedes-Benz Arena in a good mood on Saturday after defeating title hopefuls Borussia Dortmund.

Despite very little possession of the ball, Freiburg remained calm in front of goal and scored thanks to goals from a 2-1 victory Vincenzo Grifo and Roland Salla.

A strong, low defensive bloc working collectively as a unit was key to this win and the impressive defensive performance could sometimes be needed against the offensive line-up of rivals on Saturday.

Before last week’s victory, Freiburg opened the new Bundesliga season with a 0-0 draw at Arminia Bielefeld.

Together with the 1-0 win in the DFB Cup at the beginning of the month, these results mean that the guests started the season with an unbeaten run and only conceded one goal.

Christian Streich‘s men will now view the weekend as an opportunity to continue their unbeaten start and possibly replay double what they achieved over their rivals last season.

Sasa Kalajdzic will celebrate his goal for Stuttgart in February 2021

Although Pellegrino Matarazzo might try to turn his team around a bit after such a heavy loss last weekend, he will find it difficult to do so with a large number of players unavailable to choose from.

Main striker Sasa Kalajdzic is her biggest miss, the Austrian will be out until next month due to a shoulder injury. Hamadi Al Ghaddioui will be in charge even in his absence.

In addition to Kalajdzic, Stuttgart remains without Naouirou Ahamada (Ankle), Momo Cisse (Foot), Lilian Egloff (Foot), Chris Fuhrich (Collarbone), Atakan Karazor (Leg), Mohamed Sankoh (Knee) and Silas Katompa Mvumpa, while Orel Mangala is doubtful due to a thigh injury.

A nearly full selection of players is now available to visitors for the short trip.

Nishan Burkart carries a knock and Nils Petersen has a knee problem that makes them doubtful while facing their rivals Jonathan Schmid must not be included.

Therefore, Christian Streich should stay with the same starting line-up that won the impressive victory over Dortmund last weekend.

Stuttgart possible starting line-up:
Miller; Mavropanos, Anton, Kempf; Massimo, Klement, Endo, Sosa; Forster, Klimowicz; Al Ghaddioui

Freiburg possible starting line-up:
Stains; Kübler, Lienhart, N. Schlotterbeck, Gunter; Sallai, Keitel, Höfler, Grifo; Holer, Jeong

Probability: Stuttgart 2-1 Freiburg

We believe this could be a close match that was very difficult to call between two rivals with different fortunes last week. The teams are pretty even, but with the home advantage and the fans coming back in the derby, we say Stuttgart will narrowly beat Freiburg in this game.
