The Bundesliga returns this weekend after the festive break and will see Greuther Furth host VfB Stuttgart on Saturday afternoon.

Greuther Furth have struggled to adapt to life in the top-flight and inch closer towards a return to the lower tier with every passing game week. They held on for a goalless draw against Augsburg last time out and benefited massively from the wasteful finishing of their opponents.

Greuther Furth sit bottom in the Bundesliga table with just five points from 17 games. They will be looking to begin picking up points as soon as possible to avoid the drop.

VfB Stuttgart were beaten 1-0 by Koln last time out via a late winner from Anthony Modeste. They have now lost back-to-back games and have failed to score in either game.

VfB Stuttgart sit 16th in the league standings with 17 points from 16 games. Currently occupying the relegation playoff spot, the visitors are one point away from safety. They will now be looking to exit the drop zone with a win at the weekend.

Greuther Furth vs VfB Stuttgart Prediction

Greuther Furth picked up just one win in the first half of the Bundesliga season. They have scored the fewest goals and have also conceded the most goals in the division.

Stuttgart are currently on a run of back-to-back defeats and failed to score any goals in both games. They, however, have the chance to begin their second half of the season with a win against weaker opposition and should do just that.

Prediction: Greuther Furth 0-1 VfB Stuttgart
