Wolfsburg is hosting Eintracht Frankfurt at Volkswagen Arena in part of round 29 in German Bundesliga. 

Wolfsburg is a really good and talented team that was playing against Leverkusen earlier this week where they showed a lot of character and the talent I mentioned above. Wolfsburg has had only 31% of ball possession in that game, but 9 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 69% of the correct passes. This game was a clear example of how good and composed defense can affect the game in the attacking end. Wolfsburg’s defense was outstanding, and they were able to stop Leverkusen’s atomic offense and leave them on only 1 shot on goal. Another great thing about Wolfsburg in this match was that two of their four scored goals in this game were scored by their central defender Marin Pongracic. Wolfsburg has won this match 1-4 on the road and has gotten one step closer to the Europa League. Wolfsburg is in 6th place in the standings with 42 points, 40 scored goals, and 34 conceded goals. Weghorst is the top goal scorer for Wolfsburg with 11 goals, while Arnold added 7 goals. The injury list for Wolfsburg is so long that I would run out of space if I name all the players, but some of them like Camacho, William, and Guilavogui are important for Wolfsburg and would likely be in the starting lineup. I like Wolfsburg, and I believe they will end in that place that will take them to the Europa League.

Eintracht has been solid over the last few seasons, but they lost a lot of important players since last season, and that is costing Eintracht this season. Eintracht hasn’t won any of their last 5 games while conceding 11 goals in their last three games. The only good thing is that Eintracht was able to score a goal in all three of their last matches. Eintracht is in 14th place with 29 points, and they are in serious danger to enter the relegation zone if Eintracht doesn’t start winning some points. Hinteregger has scored 8 goals for Eintracht, while Paciencia added 7 goals. Cavar, Cetin, Stendera, Wiedwald, and Zimmermann are all injured and will not be playing in this game. Eintracht was facing Freiburg earlier this week, and they were the better team with 62% of ball possession, 16 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 85% of the correct passes. When I say Eintracht was the better team, I mean offensively because their defense was making mistakes left and right, a lot of them. Eintracht was losing 1-3 in 69th minute, but by some miracle, Eintracht was able to score 2 goals until the end of the game, and this match ended in 3-3 draw. Eintracht has conceded massive 52 goals in Bundesliga this season, but if nothing else, Eintracht was consistent offensively where they scored 44 goals. I believe that Eintracht has enough quality in their roster to stay in Bundesliga, but that is about it.

Wolfsburg is in a better form, while Eintracht hasn’t won any of their last 5 away matches. I know that Eintracht will end this bad spell they are in soon, I’m just not sure if they can play against Wolfsburg who are filled with confidence right now. I’ll stick with goals here.
