Wolfsburg vs Dortmund: Preview and Prediction
Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Monday, 20th September 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).
Vfl Wolfsburg played out the second consecutive 0-0 draw in Bundesliga in their weekend trip to Hoffenheim. They were easily the better side on the evening, but the misfiring forward line is a huge worry for head-coach Dieter Hecking. One cannot doubt the quality in the squad and they must be really fighting for a Champions League spot this term. But their performance last season was also below par and paid the price after finishing 8th in the league table.
Borussia Dortmund were on fire when they hosted Darmstadt last Saturday. They put 6 goals in the opposition goal and conceded none to bounce back from a disappointing 1-0 loss to the newly promoted RB Leipzig. They also thrashed Legia Warsaw by the same margin and will be high on confidence in their mid-week trip to Volkswagen Arena.
Wolfsburg vs Dortmund: Head-to-Head Stats
Dortmund were 2-1 winners in the corresponding fixture last season, which was their first win in four visits to the VW Arena. Wolfsburg were unbeaten in the previous three with back-to-back wins and a draw.
Both teams have scored in Wolfsburg’s last five home games against Dortmund. And all the five matches have seen over 2.5 goals.
Wolfsburg vs Dortmund: Prediction
Dortmund are coming here with some major injury crisis. Thomas Tuchel will be without Subotic, Bender, Schurrle and Drum, while Reus is sidelined since the last season. So this is a mini opportunity for Wolfsburg to get back to winning ways against Dortmund, which makes this match extremely difficult to predict.
At the same time, there will be no shortage of goals in this match as seen in the past five meetings between these two sides. So it is better to avoid betting on full time result and focus on the goal markets instead for this particular match.
