VfL Wolfsburg is welcoming Borussia Dortmund to Volkswagen Arena in round 13 of the German Bundesliga. Wolfsburg is still struggling, they have also lost in the Champions League, and they are very far from the team they were at the start of the season. Borussia Dortmund is doing well in Bundesliga, but they got knocked out of the Champions League earlier this week.
Wolfsburg is now without a win in their last 3 games, including their Champions League match earlier this week. In Bundesliga, Wolfsburg is now in 6th place, which isn’t bad considering how bad their form is. Nmecha has scored 5 goals for Wolfsburg so far this season. Bialek, Schlager, William, and Casteels are all injured, and they will most likely miss this game. Wolfsburg was playing against Sevilla in their last game, and they were a mess in that game. Wolfsburg has had only 39% of ball possession, only 1 shot on goal, 1 corner kick, 0 big chances created, and 73% of the correct passes. Wolfsburg has conceded early, in the 12th minute, and in the 97th minute, and they lost this game 2-0. With this loss, Wolfsburg has probably got knocked out of the Champions League, but they could still qualify for the Europa League, which is unlikely because they are not playing well.
As I’ve mentioned, Borussia is playing well in Bundesliga, and they are on Bayern’s tail with 27 points. Offensively, Borussia has been solid with 30 scored goals, but ever since Haaland got injured Borussia has been struggling a bit. The good news is he is close to being ready, and he even might get a few minutes in this game. Even though he missed a lot of games already this season, Haaland is still the leading goalscorer for Borussia with 9 goals and 4 assists. There are still a lot of other injuries for Borussia Dortmund at the moment. Thanks to that loss to Sporting in the Champions League, Borussia got knocked out from the Champions League despite still being able to have the same number of points as Sporting. The problem for Borussia is they have scored as many goals as Sporting did, and they have conceded more. When healthy, Borussia is the most exciting team in Germany, they are playing the best soccer, but with all the injuries they look just a bit better than an average team.
The trends are heavily on Borussia’s side, while Wolfsburg hasn’t won any of their last 6 games against Borussia. Wolfsburg is struggling, on both ends, and even though they might get on the scoreboard, I see Borussia winning this game.
