VfB Stuttgart are a Bundesliga side based in Baden-Württemberg. Nicknamed Die Roten they play their home matches at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Their traditional kit is a white shirt with a red band, and white shorts.
Founded in 1893, the club were one of the founder members of the Bundesliga in 1963. Their most recent success coming in 2007. They have also won the German Cup on three occasions. They have never won a European trophy, but were runners-up in the European Cup Winners Cup Final of 1998, and the UEFA Cup of 1989.
Their main local rivals are the Stuttgart Kickers, the two sides have not met at a senior level for a number of years.
Since they lost won the Bundesliga, Stuttgart have gradually declined and at the end of the 2015-2016 season they were relegated. They bounced straight back up again, and last season finished seventh. VfB Stuttgart predictions for this season were optimistic, with the side finish in a European place.
However, the season has been a very disappointing one. For now it seems almost inevitable that they will play in the relegation play-off against the third in Bundesliga 2. As there are up to four teams, contesting that spot, then it would be too early to make VfB Stuttgart betting tips for next season, as they could be playing either in the top or second tier of German football.
One VfB Stuttgart tip for next season, and beyond. Sven Mislintat, formerly chief scout at Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal has just been appointed Technical Director. He need to identify new young talent from the Bundesliga and abroad to help boost the side in the future.
