VfL Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund

“To prepare for a season-defining clash with Bayern Munich, Dortmund must overcome a tough challenge. They are facing a Wolfsburg side who carried their fine form into the return with a late winner over Augsburg. The Wolves are now seven league games unbeaten after a three-match losing streak and lead the ‘best of the rest’ pack in sixth. However, BVB have a fantastic record recent against Wolfsburg and looked spectacular in the attack against Schalke. They just cannot afford to falter now.”

Wolfsburg to recover early season momentum?

Lets not forget how this side started the season. Wolfsburg secured back-to-back wins and took their unbeaten run to nine league games. Tight games, either drawn or won by the odd goal, saw Wolfsburg around the top of the table with a potential title challenge. Things fell apart during the festive period however, losing seven of 10 games.

Dutch striker Wout Weghorst is the club’s top scorer this season with 11 league goals. Daniel Ginczek is another player who has notched goals this season. He has one of the best goals-to-game ratios in the league with 0.72 and scored last week against Augsburg. They have also kept four home clean sheets and have only failed to score at home twice this season.

Could BVB drop more away points?

What a way to make a return to Bundesliga action. A 4-0 crushing of fierce rivals Schalke has put Dortmund on the right path to catch up with leaders Bayern. BVB have now won eight of their last nine league games, scoring 31 goals and keeping five clean sheets. Goal difference could be crucial at the end of the season for the North Rhine-Westphalia club.

Dortmund have kept Wolfsburg out in their last six meetings, and will need to rely on a strong defence to continue that record. Interestingly, 25% of goals scored or conceded arrive just after half time between 46th and 60th minute. There have been 13 goals in the last 11 league games during this period, with Dortmund scoring eight of those.
