Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Match Preview

Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena.

RB Leipzig ended the year in excellent form, winning six and drawing two of their last eight games in all competitions and keeping clean sheets in each of the last four.

Their overall form in 2020 was equally impressive, with just three Bundesliga defeats in the past 12 months. A tough task, therefore, for Stuttgart, who have impressed since their return to the top flight.

That said, the Swabians have collected the majority of their points away from home this season and are still without a league win at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, so this one should go the way of the visitors.

Sasa Kalajdzic, who has scored five league goals this season, will be hoping for a start, having mainly been utilised from the bench prior to the winter break.

Leipzig, meanwhile, remain without long-term absentees Fabrice Hartmann, Konrad Laimer and Benjamin Henrichs, but Lukas Klostermann could be available once again after recovering from a knee injury.

Justin Kluivert and Nkunku are doubts due to calf and ankle problems respectively.
