Wolfsburg v Borussia Dortmund betting preview
Wolfsburg haken only one point from their last nine league meetings against DortmundWolfsburg are sitting in sixth place and extended their unbeaten league streak to seven matches courtesy of their last-gasp 2-1 win at Augsburg last weekend. Freiburg and Schalke are within two points of them and Hoffenheim are a further two points adrift. Anyway, their recent form at the Volkswagen Arena is not the best. They have won only two of their last nine league meetings on their own pitch. Direct encounters against Dortmund are not pretty reading either as Wolfsburg have failed to score in the last six with BVB and have recorded four home losses in a row.
The hosts will be without William, who has suffered an ACL tear, and Ignacio Camacho, who has an ankle injury. Both are out for the rest of this season. Yannick Gerhardt and club captain Josuha Guilavogui also remain absent through injury. Daniel Ginczek scored the winning goal last weekend, but he may start this one on the bench as Wout Weghorst is back from suspension. Admir Mehmedi, Renato Steffen and Josip Brekalo are expected to start as offensive midfielders, with Xaver Schlager and Maximilian Arnold anchoring the midfield. Croatian defender Marin Pongracic may play alongside John Brooks in defence.
Dortmund have won eight of their last nine Bundesliga matchesBorussia Dortmund returned to action in ominous form last weekend with a 4-0 rout of Schalke and would love to warm up for next Tuesday's Klassiker against Bayern Munich with another easy win. The Schwarzgelben are unbeaten at fortress Signal Iduna Park this season, but they do suffer from travel sickness having won only 6 of their 13 away matches. This is clearly costing them top spot and has costed them also a spot in the top 8 in Europe. Lucien Favre’s side were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League after a 2-0 defeat at PSG before the break.
The visitors look likely to be without captain Marco Reus again with the winger still struggling with the abductor strain that has kept him out since February. Dan-Axel Zagadou will also play no part for the foreseeable future as well as Axel Witsel, while Emre Can is back in contention after sitting out last time. Nico Schulz all missed the derby win and remain doubts with muscle injuries. Erling Haaland will continue up front after a sizzling start to life in Germany, supported by Jadon Sancho and Thorgan Hazard.
