Borussia Dortmund is welcoming VfL Wolfsburg to Signal Iduna Park in round 14 in the German Bundesliga.
Not even after firing their head coach is Borussia playing better, but maybe this Christmas break has done them some good. Borussia has 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5 games, and they are now in 6th place with 22 points, 26 scored goals, and 18 conceded goals. Borussia’s latest win was in the DFB Pokal against the lower division team, and it was a nice confidence boost. In their latest Bundesliga game, Borussia was playing against Union Berlin on the road, and they have had 71% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a decent 84% of the correct passes. The first half of this game was rough and goalless, but the second half was fantastic. Borussia has conceded a goal in the 57th minute, but they tied the score in the 60th minute. In the 78th minute, Borussia has conceded another goal, and they ended up losing this match 2-1. The good news for Borussia is that they are getting Haaland back, and he is their leading goalscorer with 10 goals. Guerreiro and Sancho have each added 5 assists. Schmelzer, Hazard, and Moukoko are all injured for Borussia Dortmund. Maybe now that Borussia got their best striker back, they will start playing better and get close to the top where they belong.
Wolfsburg is in great form, and they have lost only 1 of their last 13 games. With 24 points, 20 scored goals, and 13 conceded goals, Wolfsburg is now in 5th place, and they are on the verge of the Champions League spot. In their DFB Pokal match last week, Wolfsburg was dominant, and they have won that game 4-0. In their last 6 Bundesliga games, Wolfsburg has scored 13 goals while conceding 8 goals. Wolfsburg was hosting Stuttgart in their latest Bundesliga game, and they have had 47% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 76% of accurate passes. Wolfsburg was defending well, and they were able to score a goal in the 49th minute. Stuttgart was dangerous in the second half, but Wolfsburg was great on the defensive end, and they ended up winning this game 1-0. Weghorst is having a fantastic season for Wolfsburg, and he has scored 9 goals so far, while Arnold, Baku, and Brekalo added 2 goals each. Lacroix and Pervan are the only two injured players for Wolfsburg. With almost half a season gone, Wolfsburg is in a good position, and they have only 1 loss so far, and I believe they will end up at least in the Europa League spot.
The trends are on Borussia’s side in this matchup, while Wolfsburg hasn’t won any of their last 4 games against Dortmund. When playing at home, Borussia has not lost to Wolfsburg in their last 8 games. I think this will be a great game, and until I see Borussia is back on the winning track, I would give the advantage to Wolfsburg, but I will stick with goals here.
