This week’s second round of Bundesliga fixtures will be played over the weekend as the top tier of German football races towards the finish line. In this article, our team focuses on Wolfsburg’s home match against Borussia Dortmund that you can follow live on TV from Saturday 14:30 GMT.
Wolves hungry for a Champions League finish
Wolfsburg entered the week in third place in Bundesliga and closing in on a Champions League place for next season. Most of the home team fans would have considered that beyond their wildest dreams back in the summer, but the club is fully deserving of their chance to mix it with Europe’s elite. It’s not often Wolfsburg supporters view a Europa League finish as a disappointment, but that’s the case this term.
Despite sitting third in the table and moving closer to the top-four, the home team were rocked by a sudden dip in form when losing back-to-back league matches. They were beaten 4-3 on the road by Eintracht Frankfurt before losing 3-2 at home to Bayern Munich last weekend. Scoring five goals in two games would often see Wolfsburg claim at least one win, but they left empty-handed.
Dortmund remains in the running
Borussia Dortmund was fifth in the league following last weekend’s results, but they remain in the hunt for a top-four finish and could join their hosts in the Champions League next term. To give themselves the best chance of breaking into UEFA’s premier competition, they must collect three points from this match.
Dortmund bolstered their chances by winning back-to-back games recently, beating Stuttgart 3-2 on the road before hammering Werder Bremen 4-1 at home last weekend. Scoring seven goals in two games would have done wonders for the confidence of Dortmund’s attacking players, and they’ll aim to build on that in this match.
Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund prediction
