Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund – Match Preview

With the coronavirus pandemic gently easing its grip on football around the world, the Bundesliga was one the few leagues that has managed a restart and after last weekend’s events, it is fair to say there was an increased global audience.

An audience that had undoubtedly been starved for anything resembling top level football over the past couple of months and although the product on show was a little rough around the edges, no one can argue that it’s good to be back.

Whether the same level of global audience tunes in this weekend, is something remains to be seen and with some viewers already being put off by the prospect of closed doors fixtures, viewing figures may end up being a little more modest.

However, for those who do stick around, they will be in for another treat as Wolfsburg play host to title chasing Borussia Dortmund and although both outfits picked up a win last Saturday, it is the latter that impressed the most. The bookmakers pointed out Dortmund as a favourite to win the game, but definitely, Wolfsburg has enough team's quality to turn the odds into their side.

Borussia Dortmund Interesting Facts

Lucien Favre’s young guns went up against local rivals Schalke and after an impressive 4-0 win at Signal-Iduna Park, the Black and Yellow of Dortmund will have an undisputed claim to regional bragging rights over the next few months. Dortmund may not have had Jadon Sancho in the starting eleven, but the absence of the England international was no problem whatsoever and especially, as Erling Haaland showed no signs of shooting ring rust.

The Norwegian teenager has been nothing short of a sensation since his move from Red Bull Salzburg and after opening the scoring against David Wagner’s Schalke, he takes his Bundesliga tally to ten goals in just nine matches. After such an impressive performance, Dortmund did temporarily close the gap at the top to just a solitary point and although the gap after Bayern Munich’s win on Sunday has restored it to four, you cannot rule Lucien Favre’s men out of the Bundesliga title race.

If they are to win a first championship since 2012, then fixtures such as this weekend’s trip to Wolfsburg are the meetings that they must win – in fairness, they will probably have to win every game in order to wrestle the German domestic crown from Bayern.

The visit to the home of the Volkswagen will not be an easy one and with this weekend’s hosts currently lying in sixth and hoping for a place in next season’s Europa League, they would love nothing more than to claim a major scalp.

Wolfsburg Interesting Facts

It was certainly a good returning weekend for Wolfsburg, as not only did they manage to get the better of Augsburg, but they also pounced on slips ups from both Freiburg and Schalke and now move into the box seat for the final Europa League berth.

Wolfsburg are unbeaten in their last six and although the form guide does look good, one does have to take into account the prolonged rest break that each of the clubs have had to deal with and therefore, form itself may be a difficult metric to use when betting this week.
