Union Berlin began the season by scoring twelve goals in their first three matches. Since then, it has been a succession of defeats, with Urs Fischer’s team being beaten 4-2 by Borussia Dortmund last time out and it’s clear that defensive shortcomings are costing them dear, with the bookies struggling to split them and Stuttgart right now.

The visitors have won six of their seven matches in the German Bundesliga and might end up being a popular bet to claim a victory here. They have scored twenty-two goals domestically and Sehrou Guirassy has been bang in form, with the twenty-seven-year-old currently top of the scoring charts.

Indeed, the Guinea forward has found the net fourteen times and his latest act was to pilfer a hat-trick against Wolfsburg, with plenty of clubs now taking a look at a forward who might not be at his current club after January. Even so, Stuttgart are markedly improved from the team that only narrowly avoided relegation last term.

Sebastian Hoeneß will be confident of another win and perhaps there is merit in backing the visitors and both teams to score in this clash. After all, BTTS Yes is trading at a short price and the combination could end up yielding a nice return. Perhaps Union Berlin would settle for a draw so that the rot is stopped ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Napoli.
