Borussia Dortmund vs Stuttgart Prediction

Borussia Dortmund are 2nd in the Bundesliga, four points behind league leaders Bayern Munich. Despite their fairly comfortable position, Marco Rose's men have struggled in recent weeks, with injuries to key players not helping their cause.

Stuttgart, too, have had to deal with injury issues. They are 15th in the league table, just one point ahead of 16th-placed Augsburg. Having finished 9th last season, Pellegrino Matarazzo has found the going tough this time around.

Borussia Dortmund should win here.

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Stuttgart
