At first glance, it may seem obvious when a first division club, who also represented the top floor of German football in the group phase of the 2019/20 Champions League, meets a second division team at home in the round of 16 of the DFB Cup.
Leverkusen vs VfB Stuttgart Free Betting Tips
In fact, the Werkself’s only overall victory in this competition has already been matched by three Swabian cup victories, who are also third in the 2nd soccer Bundesliga on course towards returning to the top level of German football.
Nevertheless, at Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart, the odds of the bookmakers are of course fully in the direction of the home side, who prevailed in the BayArena in the previous round against SC Paderborn.
A match in which the tendency from the Bundesliga was confirmed, where only two games were lost in front of their own fans. Conversely, Baden-Württemberg shone with two away wins in the cup and beat two strong teams with Rostock and Hamburg. In Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart, the prediction must also include their league balance.
This in turn speaks clearly against the Swabians, who could only convert two of the ten games in foreign places in the 2nd Bundesliga into a three. Accordingly, we already trust them to score in the BayArena, but not the cup sensation. At Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart we therefore rely on tip 1 in connection with “Both teams to score/ Yes”.
Leverkusen – Statistics & current form
Overall, the Werkself are well on track. One or two more points on the account would still be better suited to North Rhine-Westphalia, who have licked blood again this season.
The finalist of the year 2002 returned to the Champions League as fourth of the pre-season – a position Leverkusen held for the first and only time in the entire season on match day 34. In the group with Juventus, Atlético Madrid and Lokomotiv Moscow, however, was the end of the preliminary round.
The men of Peter Bosz were still ranked third in the Europa League, but there is a real hammer lot with FC Porto at the end of February. The claim of the Werkself has shifted anyway. In order to keep talents like Kai Havertz, Jonathan Tah or Leon Bailey in the club, it should go back to the premier class if possible.
In fourth place, which would be needed for this, the fifth in the current table of the Bundesliga already lacks five points. A gap for which results such as the recent 1-2 defeat at TSG Hoffenheim were responsible. At the end of December, the Bosz squad had also lost at home to Hertha BSC 0-1 at home.
At the end of the day, it could be the points left behind that are the decisive factor for the fact that it is not enough this year on the 34th matchday. So it could be all the more important to have at least the DFB Cup in hand.
After all, the Werkself won their last title so far in 1993, which in the not too crowded showcases of the clubhouse is alone with the overall victory in the 1988 UEFA Cup. So Leverkusen has so far mainly won second places and has never won the championship or even supposedly insignificant titles like the Super Cup or the DFL League Cup played before in club history.
Of course, there is still a long way to go to the final, which also requires a bit of luck. But that was exactly what the Bosz team had for this round of 16, where there was home right against a second division team at home.
Not least because of this advantage, the bookmakers’ odds at Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart are very clear towards the Werkself. After all, the North Rhine-Westphalia got solid 16 out of 30 possible points in the Bundesliga at home and only had to surrender twice before their own fans.
Probable lineup of Leverkusen:
↪ Hradecky – Sinkgraven – S. Bender – Tah – L. Bender – Demirbay – Baumgartlinger – Diaby – Havertz – Bellarabi – Volland

VfB Stuttgart – Statistics & current form
As 16th of the pre-season, VfB Stuttgart had to compete and go into relegation against the third in the 2nd Bundesliga, 1.FC Union Berlin. Although there was neither a defeat in the first leg nor in the second leg, the Swabians ultimately relegated due to the away goals regulation.
The five-time German champion had to spend a year in the second-highest German league three years earlier, but at that time managed to make a direct ascent.
The Swabians are now aiming for that direct return, although the season has been rather bumpy so far. That is exactly why the responsible people made adjustments again on the coach market and installed Pellegrino Matarazzo as the new head coach shortly before the end of the year on December 30, 2019.
A decision that should pay off, because VfB is still completely unbeaten in the new year. Not only did the Baden-Württemberg team win all three friendly matches under the leadership of their new coach, they also got a three in league games against strong local rivals FC Heidenheim before scoring away at 1. FC St. Pauli at the weekend.
The Swabians thus secured third place in the table of the 2nd Bundesliga and are currently only three points behind the first place. The goal, of course, is to land in one of the two front positions to avoid the uncomfortable relegation. However, it is important to get a shortcoming under control so slowly but surely.
We are talking about the Swabians’ weakness away, which does not make a tip for the three-time cup winner at Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart any more likely.
After all, the white-red have won only two of their ten away games in the 2nd Bundesliga so far, which gives the club eighth place in the away table for exercise games. Merely because of the fact that the Swabians are the undisputed number one in the home table, there is currently a potential place of promotion.
If victory in the DFB Cup is certainly not planned, the second division team can certainly take at least one thing from the game in the BayArena: self-confidence. At least when the Swabians can stand up to the favorites for as long as possible.
The away goal should always be trusted the Stuttgart. After all, VfB has already scored 13 goals in the distance and is in an offensive position with well-known players such as Mario Gómez and Daniel Didavi. In addition, there are the three center-forward Nicólas González, Silas Wamangituka and Hamadi Al Ghaddioui, who have already scored 16 goals in second division operations.
If VfB also keeps the game in the BayArena exciting for as long as possible, anything can happen in the cup anyway. The victory in the previous round at Hamburger SV also showed that the Swabians certainly have the potential for a surprise. So it certainly won’t be a sure-fire success for the Werkself.
Probable lineup of VfB Stuttgart:
↪ Kobel – Sosa – Kempf – Karazor – Phillips – Massimo – Mangala – Endo – Förster – Klement – Gómez

At Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart, according to the prediction, everything really speaks for the Werkself to progress. The “head to head” comparison points out that practically nothing has been available for the Swabians in the past decade alone. Leverkusen are also strong at home, while VfB won only two of their ten games in the distance in the 2nd Bundesliga.
So the only question that remains is how the low odds for tip 1 can be boosted accordingly so that enough value is added to this bet.
Key facts – Leverkusen vs VfB Stuttgart tips
💫 Leverkusen have lost only one of their last 16 games against Stuttgart (twelve wins, three draws)
💫 Stuttgart won only two of the ten games away in the 2nd Bundesliga
💫 Leverkusen have lost only two of their ten home games in the Bundesliga
We decide to combine tip 1 with “Both teams to score/ Yes” at Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart. In the last five clashes between the two teams, there was only one goal scored by both teams. Nevertheless, the starting point is different today.
The VfB will ultimately hardly stand in the back, but will try to escape in the BayArena, especially since the second division team has nothing to lose and can only benefit from a strong appearance. Although we believe that the Bundesliga side’s playing class is too big in the end, the Swabian away goal is quite realistic.
For Leverkusen against VfB Stuttgart, odds are up to 2.75 that the Werkself will buy the ticket to the quarter-finals in regular time but have to accept a goal. We invest three units in this bet.
