Goals expected between Bayer Leverkusen & Stuttgart
A year ago Stuttgart were celebrating after holding the mighty Barcelona to a draw in the Champions League last 16. Forward on 12 months and Die Roten are staring relegation in the face after a dismal run of form.
Strangely enough Bruno Labbadia’s side remain in Europe but their rotten luck has followed them in the Europa League. After taking the lead against Benfica the Bundesliga strugglers conceded two in the last 20 minutes to end up losing 2-1.
Survival in the German top flight is very much Stuttgart’s objective for the rest of the season.
Bayer Leverkusen, dubbed ‘Neverkusen’ for the ability to choke at the last minute, are at the opposite end of the spectrum. Currently second in the division, Leverkusen are in fine form, winning four of their last five.
Like their opponents on Sunday, Leverkusen were in Europa League action in midweek, romping to a 4-0 away win over Metalist Kharkiv. Their last three victories have been to nil which makes the Champions League hopefuls very much favourites for the Stuttgart game.
