Defensive weaknesses have been a problem for both clubs this season, with 25 goals conceded in only their first five games.
VfL Bochum has to adjust to life in the Bundesliga for the first time in 11 years and certainly got a football lesson last weekend when the league leaders Bayern Munich condemned Thomas ReisThe men suffered a 7-0 defeat at the Allianz Arena, their worst defeat in the top division.
Both Bochum and Stuttgart have struggled defensively so far this season and we can see that the strikers on both sides are enjoying a productive afternoon in front of goal.
The guests are the easy favorites for the clash on Sunday and can experience a close victory in an entertaining competition in the Vonovia Ruhrstadion.
Probability: VfL Bochum 2-3 Stuttgart.
