Stuttgart vs Schalke 04
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 27 February 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena.
The Miners are easily the worst team in the whole competition. They are placed dead last in the table, and have conceded the most number of goals as well as have scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the Bundesliga.
In fact, they have conceded a total of 56 goals till now, and only one other team in the German top flight have let in more than 40 goals (43 by Mainz).
Moreover, Christian Gross’s men have won just once all through this campaign, and are the prime contender to get relegated at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, the Swabians have carved a spot for themselves in the mid-table, and are trying their best to extend their stay there by performing well against weak oppositions.
In fact, they have developed a habit of making up for their dropped points against the in-form teams in the league, by exploiting the minnows.
And for sure, the Miners are the weakest of the lot. By all means, expect Stuttgart to deliver a winning performance this weekend at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Stuttgart vs Schalke: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse match-up had ended in a 1-1 draw.

Stuttgart vs Schalke Prediction
Pellegrino Matarazzo’s men won 0-1 on the road the last match-day, against Koln. In the meantime, Gross’s men lost 0-4 at home the past game week, against Dortmund.
Going on, the Miners were winless in 22 of their past 26 overall fixtures, and two of the total four wins during the stretch had come in the DFB Pokal, against teams from lower divisions. One other win had come in a friendly, and only one had come in the Bundesliga.
Moreover, since February of 2020, they have not won a single league fixture on the road as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 22 of their preceding 30 overall matches, and they have lost just four times this whole season at home. These four defeats had come against Monchengladbach, Leipzig, Bayern, and Freiburg.
Note that these are amongst the best in the German Bundesliga.
Taking into account these observations, expect Stuttgart to dominate proceedings this Saturday.
