bayernLatest Bayern Munich v Stuttgart live stream news, plus team news and match preview from Bundesliga tonight.

Bayern find themselves as overwhelming ¼ favourites to beat Stuttgart in the Bundesliga whilst Marseille to look keep themselves in European contention with victory against Valenciennes in Ligue 1.

It seems that no-one in the Bundesliga is capable of stopping Bayern Munich this season and the defending champions will look to extend their streak to 18 games with a win at Stuttgart.

Having yet to lose this season, Bayern have opened up a big lead over Bayer Leverkusen in second place and could extend the points gap to thirteen if they pick up the victory at the Mercedes Benz Arena.

The remarkable fact is that Bayern are still picking up wins even without the creative duo of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery who have been on the injured list since before the New Year.

Having scored and set-up a goal on Saturday, Mario Gotze is likely to retain his place in attack but is likely to be joined by their top scorer Mario Mandzukic who was rested for the victory against Borussia Monchengladbach.

This season has been a bit topsy-turvy for Stuttgart and their inconsistent form has meant that VFB are currently sitting quite comfortably in 12th place.

Having shown some good form in recent matches, Norwegian international Mohamed Abdellaoue is expected to start upfront alongside Vedad Ibisevic.

With Marco Rojas still struggling with his match fitness, it means that young playmaker Timo Werner will be given the task of trying to carve upon the infamous Bayern defence.

Elsewhere in Europe, Marseille will look to bounce back from their loss against Monaco by getting victory against Valenciennes and get their Ligue 1 season back on track.

After their loss on Sunday, L’OM dropped down to ninth in the table but they could reclaim their fifth spot from Lyon with a win at the Stade Velodrome.

Marseille aren’t expected to make any changes to the side that appeared on Sunday meaning that the likes of Mathieu Valbuena and Dimitri Payet will be looking to carve open Valenciennes multiple times in order to get the three points.

Life certainly won’t be easy for the visitors as Valenciennes are currently stuck in the relegation zone and a win could take them out of the bottom three at the expense of Evian.

The problem for the visitors though is that they are without many of their top attackers as both Jean-Louis Bahebeck and Anthony Le Tallec are still injured meaning that options are limited for the trip to the Velodrome.

No matter what Marseille does, all eyes will no doubt fall on Germany as everyone looks to see if there is anything that can stop the Bayern express from conquering the Bundesliga for the second straight year.
