Raphael Honigstein's Bundesliga Betting: Stuttgart To Show Their Sunday Best

FC Köln - TSG Hoffenheim

Neither Cologne or Hoffenheim are in good form prior to their clash on Sunday. The hosts have just one win in nine and have only won twice at home this season , yet Peter Stöger's side still look likely to survive. 

Hoffenheim are poor on the road having only been victorious in one of their last eleven away from home. They have the incisiveness going forward with Roberto Firmino and Kevin Volland but Cologne are likely to match them defensively on Sunday, making a draw likely at 3.30.


VfB Stuttgart - SV Werder Bremen

Stuttgart have the chance to put Hamburg bottom of the Bundesliga if they can overcome the northerners' arch rivals Werder Bremen. Huub Stevens has the luxury of choosing from a fully fit squad on Sunday as his side look to replicate the resilience shown in their last home game, a 3-1 victory over Eintracht.

While Werder have just one win in six and are slinking away from a European challenge, Viktor Skripnik's team are unbeaten away from home in 2015. Stuttgart's last home display showed enough to suggest they may be able to break that run here with VfB at 2.10 to win.
