Bayern Munich is hosting VfL Wolfsburg at Allianz Arena in round 17 of the German Bundesliga. Bayern is scoring a lot, they are winning games, and they are still at the top of the table in Bundesliga. Wolfsburg is not scoring, they are losing games, and they are sinking deeper and deeper in the standings.
Bayern is on a 6-game winning streak right now, and their latest win was against Stuttgart on the road, 0-5. During this winning streak, Bayern has scored 16 goals, while they conceded only 4 goals. With 40 points, Bayern is now at the top of the table, and they have a 6-point advantage over Borussia Dortmund. As usual, Bayern is also the best offensive team in the league with 52 scored goals, and Lewandowski is their leading goalscorer, as usual. Lewandowski has 18 goals to his name so far in Bundesliga. Gnabry has added 9 goals. There are still a few injuries in Bayern, and a few covid cases, but they are a deep team who can beat anyone on their worst day, but they can also concede a lot because of their sloppy defense, especially on the road.
I honestly can’t imagine Wolfsburg having a good time in this game. Wolfsburg is on a losing streak, they haven’t won any of their last 8 games, and they are not looking well at the moment. Wolfsburg has conceded 16 goals in their last 6 games, and they have lost all 6 of those games if that wasn’t clear. In their last game against Koln, Wolfsburg wasn’t bad, they scored 2 goals, but it simply wasn’t enough for a positive result because their defense is just terrible. Wolfsburg is in 11th place in the standings, and their chances of seeing Europe next season are slim to none. Wolfsburg also has a lot of injuries right now, and that is a big problem for them as they don’t have a lot of depth. Weghorst and Nmecha are leading goalscorers for Wolfsburg with 6 goals each. There is a lot of work to be done by Wolfsburg, especially during the winter break, but they are good enough to turn this around, at least somewhat around.
These are two teams in completely opposite forms, and with Bayern scoring as much as they are, Wolfsburg will suffer here. Nothing is working out for Wolfsburg right now, they are not scoring a lot, but they are conceding a ton. I’m going with Bayern, all the way.
