After a difficult start to Niko Kovac, who joined the club in the summer after being sacked by Monaco in early 2022, Wolfsburg has kept seven clean sheets in all competitions since returning from the international break in September. Defeat, and restore health.
With four wins and three draws in that match, Wolves moved up to 11th in the standings while also reaching the third round of the German Cup – Pocar, which Kovac’s side beat 3-0 away on Saturday. An impressive victory for the Mainz 05 team.
Dortmund’s form has also improved significantly in recent weeks, with a three-game winning streak helping them sit alongside Bayern at the top of the table.
Edin Terzic’s side eased to a 3-0 win over struggling VfL Bochum at the Westfalenstadion on Saturday, with goals from teenagers Giovanni Reyna and Youssoufa Moukoko (two points) ensuring half-time. The former got all three points.
A bitter spat is expected between the two in-form teams in Lower Saxony on their match.
Wolfsburg has been in good form lately and should be able to continue that form against Borussia Dortmund, but we expect the visitors to take the lead.
