Former Bundesliga champions Stuttgart will have an uphill battle on their hands when they welcome Bayern Munich to the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Saturday evening. You can watch the Live Match Stream of Stuttgart Vs Bayern via beIN SPORTS connect.
Stuttgart have not made the ideal start to the 2018/2019 season, after being dumped out of the German cup to third division outfit Hansa Rostock. An opening day 1-0 defeat to Mainz didn’t help to address the slump as substitute Anthony Ujah scored in the second half to pile further misery on Die Roten. A heavy defeat by the reigning Bundesliga champions could put Coach Tayfun Korkut under pressure.
Centre back Benjamin Pavard had a summer to remember with France as Les Bleus lifted the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The 21-year old was heavily linked with a move to Bayern in the close season, and so far Stuttgart has resisted the advances from a host of European teams for the versatile defender.
Pavard is likely to start at centre back on Saturday evening, and his battle with Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski will be one to watch out for.

Bayern needed two late goals from Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski to get the better of Hoffenheim with a 3-1 win in the first game of the 2018/2019 season. After picking up the German Super Cup with a 5-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, it seems like it’s business as usual at Bayern after Niko Kovač took charge of the club in the summer.
Arjen Robben will be looking to earn a starting place at the weekend and will have a good case after coming on against Hoffenheim and scoring the decisive goal. The Dutch winger might be coming towards the twilight of his career, but can still be a key player for FCB this season as they look to rule both domestically and in Europe.
Robben signed a one-year extension with Bayern in the summer and has shown little signs of slowing down just yet. His eye for goal will be needed if Bayern is to get the better of Stuttgart away from home.
