Dortmund set to return to winning ways at Wolfsburg


On Saturday afternoon, Dortmund look to maintain top spot in the Bundesliga when they travel to face Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena.

Wolfsburg have picked up 12 points from their opening nine Bundesliga games and sit tenth place in the league table. The Wolves ended a six-game run without a win in the German top-flight last time out by recording a 3-0 win at Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The home side’s recent league games have been relatively high scoring, with 11 of their last 13 games in the Bundesliga producing over 2.5 goals, including their last two outings.

The Wolves have failed to win in their last four home games in the Bundesliga, picking up two draws and suffering two defeats. Their recent home games in the league have been high scoring with over 2.5 goals scored in their last seven matches, while both teams have also scored in the same run of games.

Dortmund have made a strong start to their Bundesliga campaign and currently sit top of the table, leading champions Bayern Munich by two points. A 2-2 draw at Hertha Berlin last time out in the league ended a four-game winning run. The game was BVB’s fifth straight match in the German top-flight that has produced over 2.5 goals.

The visitors are now four games unbeaten on their travels in the Bundesliga, having recorded two wins and two draws. Dortmund have only failed to score in one of their last five league games on their travels.

A big positive for the visitors heading into this game is that they have won five of their last six meetings with the Wolves in all competitions while scoring at least two goals in the process.

Sportseconds predicts that Dortmund will return to winning ways in the Bundesliga by recording a victory in a high scoring clash.
