Title challengers Borussia Dortmund welcome Wolfsburg to the Signal Iduna Park in the Bundesliga this weekend. The match will kick-off at 3:30pm local time, on Saturday.

Home Team: Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund’s 2019 has seen them drop out of the German Cup, humbled in the Champions League, and see them give away a 9-point lead in the title race. Perhaps their performance at the beginning of the season lifted expectations to a new high level, in which the team have failed to deliver on. Nonetheless, Dortmund would have welcomed the opportunity to be in the title race as we enter April next week, and have a fantastic chance to topple Bayern Munich with just 8 games to go.

Dortmund travel to Bayern Munich next weekend, so they’ll hope that they are at least level on points going into that match, which means they cannot make a mess of this fixture with Wolfsburg. Prior to the international break, Dortmund managed to win their game at Hertha Berlin in the 90th minute, via a late Marco Reus goal, in an enthralling 3-2 victory. That type of win was the hallmark of champions, and that drive and spirit may take them very close to their first title since 2012.

Away Team: Wolfsburg

Aside from their annual demolition by the hands of Bayern Munich, which saw them lose 6-0, Wolfsburg have had a decent second half of the season, as they push for European qualification places. Last season, they were almost relegated, and were saved by winning their play-off against the 3rd best team in the 2nd tier.

Wolfsburg have improved significantly this season, and they bounced back from that 6-0 loss three weeks ago, with a thumping 5-2 home victory against Fortuna, as top goal scorer Wout Weghorst scored a hat-trick. Wolfsburg have the 4th best away record in the division, as they have only collected two points less than Dortmund on the road all season. Can they give Dortmund a dagger to their title hopes?

Head to Head

Wolfsburg have had a torrid record against Borussia Dortmund in recent seasons, with their last victory coming in 2015, which was at home. On their travels to Dortmund, Wolfsburg haven’t won a league game since 2012, but they did manage to draw 0-0 last season. Wolfsburg have been shy in front of goal in recent meetings, as they have gone almost 400 minutes without scoring against Dortmund, which stretches to almost 4 and a half matches. In the reverse fixture, Dortmund edged out a 1-0 victory – with Marco Reus scoring the solitary goal. Dortmund did fail to beat Wolfsburg last season in this fixture, but did win the two seasons before that in comfortable fashion, winning 5-1 and 3-0.

Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on footballDortmund are strong favourites at 1/2 to win the match, with a draw at 10/3, and a Wolfsburg win priced at 11/2. Dortmund have been fantastic at home all season, and remain undefeated in the Bundesliga, so I expect them to get a victory here, so my prediction is a 4-2 win at 28/1. Wolfsburg lost 6-0 in their most recent away match, and for them to succumb to the same score line is priced at 66/1. All the 6’s suggest it’ll be bad luck though.

 

Jadon Sancho should return for Dortmund despite fitness issues, and I’d tip him to score at any time, priced at 11/5. Wolfsburg have scored many goals of late, which is why I see them scoring some goals here, so backing them to score 2+ goals is at a generous 5/2. Dortmund have made it a habit to win games late, or from behind, so my final tip would be to back a Wolfsburg/Dortmund HT/FT bet at 16/1.
