Competition: German Bundesliga
Date: 7th August 2022
Kickoff: 13:30 UTC
Venue: Mercedes Benz Arena

After putting up a massive fight against their ex-manager Julian Nagelsmann's Bayern Munich in the Super Cup, Leipzig will take a trip to the Mercedes Benz Arena for their first Bundesliga tie on Sunday. Stuttgart awaits their arrival after one of the poorest seasons in their top-flight history recently, despite boasting a young and upcoming squad which consists of players who are wanted keenly by Europe's elite. Nevertheless, it is expected that this Bundesliga opener for both clubs will be a very exciting game to watch sheerly because of the umpteen number of Bundesliga prospects that are on show under one roof.

VfB Stuttgart vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips

Leipzig are not only without a clean sheet in their last 5 games, but they have also conceded 10 (!) goals in their last two games alone. But, they have also kept 4 clean sheets against Stuttgart in recent times. This makes it a very difficult tie to bet on. Nevertheless, we believe that the current numbers do hold more power than the past, and so, we will be betting on both sides scoring solely due to the shambolic defending done by Leipzig in recent times (12 goals conceded in last 5 games). On the other hand, Stuttgart has been relishing its newfound emergence this summer. They have beaten the likes of Valencia, and Brentford, also ending the last season with a draw against Bayern in the last two games. We have to count on the home side disrupting the Red Bull party.

VfB Stuttgart Team News

“The team are on the right track. They’re difficult opponents to start with but we’ll try everything to win the match,” said Mohamed Silas, speaking ahead of Stuttgart's opener against Leipzig earlier this week. The 23-year-old was one of the goal-scorers against Valencia in the massive 5-2 win and hopes that the club will play such an attacking game again this Sunday against their Bundesliga counterparts. Waldemar Anton was sent off against Dynamo Dresden in the DFB Pokal, and thus is highly likely to miss this tie due to suspension. Captain Wataru Endo should fall back to the back-three in Anton's absence and make space for a single pivot to come into the system. Silas and Endo are our two players to watch.

RB Leipzig Team News

The Red Bull-owned club managed to hold onto the likes of Christopher Nkunku this summer despite heavy interest from the likes of Chelsea FC and PSG. The versatile and disruptive striker, who was the closest to Robert Lewandowski in the Bundesliga last season, will surely start this season opener and will be one of the players to watch. Another player to observe closely is Nkunku's compatriot on the left wing, Dominik Szoboszlai. The Austrian has been taking the Red Bull Arena by storm since his arrival to the Bundesliga last season, and he will be as important to the side this season, as Nkunku is.
