Wolfsburg vs Stuttgart Prediction: Ata-kan test the home keeper at least once

Germany, Bundesliga, Saturday, March 2nd, 17:30 (UK)

Wolfsburg remains part of a group of five clubs immediately above the relegation zone that is separated by just one point. They were also another that were holding all three points at the weekend before conceding a late equaliser at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, with former player Omar Marmoush grabbing a dramatic leveller deep into added-on time at the end of the 90.

It shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise to Wolves fans, given they have seen their team share the spoils in six of the last seven league games. They will look to go one better and grab a first win in nine against a Stuttgart side that won the reverse 3-1.

Bundesliga surprise package Serhou Guirassy plundered all three goals on that occasion, and only Harry Kane has more than the Guinea international’s 18 league goals this campaign. However, with the traders now wise to his exploits, I am looking elsewhere on the visitor’s side for some value when it comes to shots.

When available, Atakan Karazor has started every game for the Reds this season. Although primarily selected for his tough tackling, with his 62 won only bettered by one other player in the Bundesliga this term, it is his shot data that catches my eye.

The 27-year-old has had at least one attempt at goal in 12 of his last 15 games across all competitions and also had a shot in the reverse fixture at MHPArena in October. The odds of 2.00 for another effort here look like a touch of value.

  • Best Odds: 2.00

  • Stakes: 8/10

Match OPTA Stats: Guirassy at home against Wolfsburg

  • With 47 points after 23 games, this is VfB Stuttgart’s joint-best record at this stage of a Bundesliga season – the Swabians only previously had as many points at this stage in the 1982-83 campaign (converted to three points per win) and finished in third place back then.
  • VfL Wolfsburg and VfB Stuttgart are the only teams besides TSG Hoffenheim and FC Augsburg yet to keep a clean sheet in the Bundesliga in 2024. Nevertheless, in 2024, only Bayer 04 Leverkusen have faced fewer shots per game (8 on average) than Stuttgart (10) and Wolfsburg (11, as FC Bayern).
  • VfL Wolfsburg’s Kevin Behrens is the only player to score for two different clubs this Bundesliga season: four times for Union Berlin and most recently for Wolfsburg for the first time, ending a drought of 19 goalless Bundesliga appearances last time out in Frankfurt. Behrens has scored all five of his goals this season with his head, with only Harry Kane (6) scoring more headed goals.
  • VfB Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy has scored four goals in two Bundesliga appearances against VfL Wolfsburg – only against 1. FSV Mainz 05 has he netted more often (5 goals in 5 appearances). In the last match against Wolfsburg, he scored all three of Stuttgart’s goals (all three after the half-time break) – indeed this was the first flawless hat-trick (all in one half, with no other goals scored in between) by a VfB player since Cacau in February 2010 against 1. FC Köln (5-1).
