📏 Form Guide

VfL Wolfsburg WWDDLW

Wolfsburg will be looking for another win after the 1-2 Bundesliga 1 victory versus FC Augsburg 1907. In that game, VfL Wolfsburg had 60% possession and 15 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. For VfL Wolfsburg, the goals were scored by Renato Steffen (43') and Daniel Ginczek (91'). At the other end, FC Augsburg 1907 had 8 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.

At least three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Wolfsburg have participated. Their opponents scored 5 of them in this period whereas Die Wölfe managed a tally of 12. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend can be continued on into this next match.

Pre-game facts show that Wolfsburg:

  • have not beaten Borussia Dortmund in their last 9 matches in the league.
  • are undefeated in their last 3 home league matches.

Borussia Dortmund WWWWLW

Borussia Dortmund will come into the clash following on from a 4-0 Bundesliga 1 win in the defeat of FC Schalke 04 in their most recent outing. In that match, Borussia Dortmund managed 59% possession and 11 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. For Borussia Dortmund, goals were scored by Erling Håland (29'), Raphaël Guerreiro (45', 63') and Thorgan Hazard (48'). On the other side, FC Schalke 04 got 10 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.

A series of outstanding showings by the Borussia Dortmund defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their previous 6 fixtures in total. During the same time, their forwards have scored 11. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, though.

Their previous form shows that Borussia Dortmund:

  • have not emerged victorious against Borussia Dortmund in their previous 9 matches in the league.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
  • have not lost to VfL Wolfsburg when they've played them away from home in the last 4 league matches. A very decent away record against them.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A study of past results between these clubs going back to 18/02/2017 tells us that these fixtures have been miserable for Wolfsburg. They have not been able to get any victories at all while Borussia Dortmund have been superior, finishing as winners in 83 per cent of those games played.

A combined total of 12 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 0 from Die Wölfe and 12 being from Die Borussen. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.

🗞️ Team News: VfL Wolfsburg

William (Cruciate ligament injury), Ignacio Camacho (Ankle injury) and Josuha Guilavogui (Knee injury) are unavailable for Wolfsburg boss Oliver Glasner. Wouter Weghorst will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

We are thinking that Die Wölfe will probably make use of the 4-4-1-1 system in the match and select Koen Casteels, Kevin Mbabu, John Anthony Brooks, Marin Pongračić, Paulo Otavio, Josip Brekalo, Xaver Schlager, Maximilian Arnold, Renato Steffen, Admir Mehmedi and Wouter Weghorst.

📰 Team News: Borussia Dortmund

Thanks to a mainly full-strength group of players, there is just a single fitness problem for the Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre to be concerned with. Marco Reus (Groin injury) won’t be playing here.

We are inclined to think that Die Borussen appear most likely to make use of a 3-4-2-1 lineup, choosing Roman Bürki, Lukasz Piszczek, Mats Hummels, Manuel Akanji, Achraf Hakimi, Julian Brandt, Thomas Delaney, Raphael Guerreiro, Thorgan Hazard, Jadon Sancho and Erling Braut Haland.

🧠 Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Wolfsburg are capable enough to score against this Borussia Dortmund side, but a single goal isn’t likely to be enough to avoid a loss. We’ve gone for a 1-2 winning score for Borussia Dortmund when all is said and done. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
