Insights:

Stuttgart form and stats

Stuttgart's results here at Mercedes-Benz-Arena in the Bundesliga have been very modest with 1 victory, 6 draws and 3 defeats.

Happy days for Stuttgart in their previous game, a Bundesliga match away at Köln (placed 14th) that ended with a 1-0 victory. Before that, Stuttgart drew at home versus Hertha BSC.

Stuttgart are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 14 goals in 10 games. Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 16 goals have been conceded.

Schalke 04 form and stats

There's been little loot from Schalke 04's travels as they have only collected 4 points from 10 away games in the Bundesliga. Schalke 04, who have the fewest scored goals (15) in Bundesliga, only have 0 wins to counter their 6 defeats and 4 draws. Travelling has not been lucrative for the away team as they have returned home without a win in ten away games in a row.

The attacking players of Schalke have been feeble for some time now, the team not scoring a league goal in the last 322 minutes.

Home advantage was not enough for Schalke in their previous game, as they lost their Bundesliga-match, hosting Borussia Dortmund, 0-4. Before that, Schalke travelled to Union Berlin and returned home with a draw after the game finished 0-0.

Schalke lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Schalke as they have only managed to score 7 times from 10 away games in the league. Schalke can't defend away. 30 goals have been scored by the opposition in 10 matches, an average of more than three per game. You might want to look at the total goal statistics, which can be found on the Statistics tab above.
