Stuttgart begin the weekend in third spot and can narrow the gap between themselves and second-placed Bayern Munich to a solitary point with victory, while a win for Union would move them closer to the top half of the table.

Stuttgart to win and both teams to score @ 11/5

Stuttgart have been the surprise package in the Bundesliga this campaign and they have shown they will not go down without a fight as the season enters its final stretch.

With 16 wins from 24 games, Stuttgart are in prime position to make the Champions League places with a six-point advantage over Borussia Dortmund in fourth.

They were impressive 3-2 winners away to Wolfsburg last time out and have won five of their last six games in the German top flight, beating Freiburg and Leipzig as part of that run.

Their 3-2 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB Pokal last month could be a blessing in disguise with the club now able to focus solely on finishing as high as possible in the Bundesliga.

They should be far too strong for Union Berlin but the visitors could at least get on the scoresheet.

Union have started to pull away from the relegation zone in the Bundesliga and have found the net in four of their last five matches.

Stuttgart, meanwhile, are without a clean sheet in their last nine assignments in all competitions and a bet on them to win and both teams to score is the way to go.

Serhou Guirassy to score first @ 11/4

Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy has been one of the standout players in the Bundesliga this season and he shows no signs of slowing down, having bagged a brace against Wolfsburg last time out.

That took his league tally to 20 goals in 18 matches, meaning he is averaging a goal every 66 minutes.

Also on penalty duty, he looks a worthwhile bet at 11/4 to find the net first.
