Wolfsburg is welcoming Freiburg to Volkswagen Arena in part of round 31 of German Bundesliga.
Wolfsburg has been playing hot and cold since the season has started again and they won 3 of their last 5 games while losing 2. During that stretch, Wolfsburg has scored 8 goals and conceded 6 goals. With 45 points, Wolfsburg is in 6th place in the standings, the Europa League spot, but Hoffenheim is right behind Wolfsburg with only 2 points less. Overall, Wolfsburg is playing solid soccer this season and they have scored 42 goals and conceded 36 goals. Weghorst is the top goal scorer for Wolfsburg with 12 goals, while Arnold added 4 goals and 8 assists. Camacho, Karamoko, Otavio, and William are all injured and will skip this game. In their latest Bundesliga game against Werder on the road, Wolfsburg has had 47% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 77% of the correct passes. A decent match for Wolfsburg which they won 0-1. With 4 games left in the season, Wolfsburg has a few more tough games left, and they need every point they can win if they want to keep their Europa League spot. The form has been shaky and inconsistent for Wolfsburg so far, but hopefully, they can improve in these last few weeks.
Freiburg has won only 1 of their last 5 games, and that was in their most recent match in Bundesliga against Borussia M’gladbach. Freiburg was the weaker team in that match with only 35% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and only 74% of the correct passes, but Freiburg was still able to score 1 goal and has won this match 1-0. Freiburg is also in the hunt for the Europa League, they are now in 8th place with 41 points, just 4 points behind Wolfsburg, their direct competitor who Freiburg is facing in this game. With 39 scored goals in 30 games, Freiburg is a solid offensive team in Bundesliga, but that is not enough to compensate for 41 conceded goals this season. Nils Petersen has scored 10 goals for Freiburg this season, while Waldschmidt and Holer added 5 goals each. Kath, Ravet, and Gulde are injured and will skip this game. Freiburg still has a decent chance to get to the Europa League, and their journey begins against their direct competitor. In their last three games of the season, Freiburg still has to play against Bayern Munich, but the other two games are against the team that Freiburg can compete against and win all three points.
In my opinion, Wolfsburg is the better team here, and Freiburg hasn’t won any of their last 5 away games. Wolfsburg’s home record this season is 4-6-5, while Freiburg is 4-6-5 on the road. Wolfsburg is in the better form, but Freiburg has been known to surprise this season. Taking everything into consideration, I will side with Wolfsburg because they are the better team and they need this win more.
