In Bundesliga action this weekend, Stuttgart will host Koln at the Mercedes Benz Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Stuttgart have struggled for form of late but picked up a valuable point against Bayern Munich last weekend. Goals from Tiago Tomas and Sasa Kalajdzic were enough to earn Pellegrino Matarazzo's men a 2-2 draw against the champions.

Stuttgart have picked up 30 points from 33 games this season and sit 16th in the league standings. They are almost assured of safety but have to rely on results elsewhere to guarantee it outright.

Meanwhile, Koln's pursuit of UEFA Europa League football took a hit last weekend, as they were beaten 1-0 by Wolfsburg. The Billy Goats were by far the more adventurous side offensively but could not beat an inspired Pavao Pervan in the opposition goal.

Koln are seventh in the league standings with 52 points from 33 games. They have qualified for the UEFA Europa Conference League qualifiers and could achieve UEFA Europa League football if results go their way.

Stuttgart vs Koln Prediction

Both teams are fighting for something ahead of their weekend clash. The hosts, who are on a six-game winless run, need a win on Saturday to secure outright safety, although they need Hertha Berlin to lose, for that to happen.

Koln, meanwhile, will miss out on UEFA Champions League football after their loss last time out but can still qualify for the UEFA Europa League. They have won four of their last five games and should win again.

Prediction: Stuttgart 1-2 Koln.
