Tuesday's Bundesliga Pick: Patrick Kearns sees Stuttgart vs Union Berlin as a goal-scoring match
After a thrilling 5-1 win at Borussia Dortmund, Stuttgart looks to continue to build their momentum when they host Union Berlin. The result on the weekend made it back-to-back victories for the hosts and pushed them up to 7th in the table. Stuttgart produced their best display of the season and should be brimming with confidence ahead of the midweek clash.
Likewise, Union Berlin did well to hold reigning champions Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw and are currently enjoying their best ever start to a top-flight campaign. This has them level with points with the hosts, after losing just two of their opening 11 matches.
For this fixture, we can expect goals from both ends on the pitch. Stuttgart have seen both teams to score in ten of their last 11 matches, while Union Berlin have in nine of their last 11 matches. With both teams attacking fronts producing goals, I see a 2-1 or 2-2 result.
