In what is surely going to be a tight affair, Wolfsburg host league leaders, Gladbach, at the Volkswagen Arena on the 15th of December 2019. While Wolfsburg will enjoy home advantage, Gladbach will be coming into this game with a lot of confidence as league leaders, and off the back of a win over the defending champions. Despite the Die Fohlen leading the league table, the bookies reckon this would be a close encounter, evidenced by the odds available.
Wolfsburg currently occupies the 9th position in the Bundesliga, 11 points behind Gladbach. They will be hoping to cut the gap to 8, or at the very least maintain the 11-points gap. In 14 games, Oliver Glasner’s men have five wins, five draws, and four losses. Wolfsburg have struggled for goals this season, with only 15 goals all season – barely one goal per game. The Die Wölfe have also conceded 14 goals in 14 matches, which is not entirely bad, but not enough to offset their attacking deficiency. Despite their struggles in front of goal, W. Weghorst has seven goals this season.
Wolfsburg home form is also average at best: two wins, three stalemates and two defeats. Matches at Wolfsburg’s home stadium average about 2.14 goals, with the away side contributing about 1.14 of the goals. The Die Wölfe lost their last game 1-0 away at Freiburg, which underlines the lack of goals from this side, especially away from home. Wolfsburg also lost their last home game against Werder Bremen. In the last 20 matches, Oliver Glasner’s men have won about 45% of their matches at home. Within that same 20-game span, Wolfsburg have only kept a clean sheet six times.
After a come from behind win over Bayern at the Borussia-Park stadium, Borussia Monchengladbach travel to Wolfsburg as league leaders – one point ahead of Leipzig, five points ahead of Dortmund and 7 points ahead of the defending champions, Bayern. Suffice to say that Marco Rose’s side will be buzzing. Although failure to qualify from group J of the Europa League after a home defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir might affect morale just a little bit.
On their travels this season, the Die Fohlen have won four out of six matches and lost two. They’ve also scored nine goals at an average of 1.54 goals and conceded just five. In away matches involving Gladbach, the average goals per match is 2.33 goals. The team from Mönchengladbach will be relying on the likes of M. Thuram and P. Herrmann who have scored six and five goals, respectively.
In the last 10 meetings between the two clubs, the Die Fohlen have won 3, lost 5 and drawn 2. In those 10 matches, there have been more than 2.5 goals in 6 of those matches.
Both sides have a few players missing; Tisserand will be missing for Wolfsburg due to a suspension, while Zakaria will also be missing for a similar reason for Gladbach. Of the two sides, Gladbach is more likely to repeat the same starting eleven from their last Bundesliga match.
Wolfsburg have won or lost all of their last five matches, while Gladbach have equally the same stats. As some of the stats we’ve reeled out indicate, both teams rarely do draws. They either win or the opposition wins. No wonder, a home or away win double chance scores highly on our betting index. In terms of goals, the encounter has all the look and feel of just a few goals. There have been less than 2.5 goals in Wolfsburg’s last five matches, and two of Gladbach’s last five matches.
