The Stuttgart vs Dortmund match will be played on Friday, November 17, at the Mercedes Benz Arena, Stuttgart. Stuttgart is currently 12th on the table with 13 points, while Borussia Dortmund is  3rd on the table with 20 points at the moment. This is one of the Bundesliga round 12 matches.


  • Stuttgart recorded three defeats and two victories in their last five Bundesliga matches. They are still undefeated at home in the league, with four wins and one draw.
  • Borussia Dortmund failed to win in four straight matches in the league. They were defeated at home against Leipzig and Bayern Munich, their biggest rivals in the race for the title.


In their previous ten meetings, Borussia recorded seven victories, while three matches ended in a draw. Stuttgart defeated Borussia Dortmund for the last time in 2009/10 season. The result was 4:1 at Mercedes Benz Arena.


Stuttgart is one of the most successful hosts and the worst visitor in the league. They lost all matches outside Mercedes Benz Arena, and the game against Borussia Dortmund is even more significant because of that fact. Stuttgart just can't find the rhythm outside the home field, but at least they are winning matches at home, so they are currently outside the danger zone.

Borussia Dortmund took advantage of Bayern Munich's lousy start of the season, and after seven round they were on the top of the table. However, in the last four matches, they proved that the fight for the title would probably be out of their reach - they were defeated against Leipzig and after that their game ultimately fell apart. At the moment, Borussia Dortmund is six points behind Bayern Munich.

Borussia Dortmund is a favorite to win this match, but if we look at their recent performances, it won't be surprising if Stuttgart gets their first victory over Dortmund in the last seven years.
