Wolfsburg form and stats

Wolfsburg have collected 18 points from their Bundesliga home games so far after 4-6-3.

Wolfsburg enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Augsburg's place. The match ended 2-1 with Daniel Ginczek and Renato Steffen scoring. Preceding that match was the home Europa League game against Shakhtar Donetsk that was lost 1-2.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of O. Glasner when Daniel Ginczek scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 61st minute. A late climax in the match against Augsburg as the winning goal came one minutes into overtime; scored by Daniel Ginczek.

Wolfsburg are traveling soon after this match as the Bundesliga match at Bayer Leverkusen awaits in three days.

The Wolfsburg fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 16 in 13 matches. On the other hand, Wolfsburg have conceded 13 goals.

Borussia Dortmund form and stats

The visitors are W6-D3-L4 on the road this term. That's in the Bundesliga. Impressively, the visitors are on a five-match winning run which they hope continue versus Wolfsburg. Winning streaks in away matches are not that common, but Borussia are close to a proper streak after winning their two previous away games.

Erling Braut Haaland, Thorgan Hazard and Raphaël Guerreiro (2) scored in Borussia Dortmund's previous match, the home game against Schalke 04 that ended 4-0. A 0-2 defeat away at PSG before that.

As mentioned above, Borussia was the only team on the pitch versus Schalke 04 in their previous game, winning 4-0. This could be a tougher task.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Bayern München in just three days.

With an average of more than two away goals per league game away, Borussia Dortmund are regular goalscorers on their travels. In the opposite end, Borussia Dortmund have conceded 23 goals in their away games.
