Wolfsburg currently sit in 12th place, in no imminent danger of being dragged into a relegation battle but are also a win away from nudging their way into the fight for European football. Seven points separate Wolfsburg and the bottom three, whilst they are nine points off sixth place Eintracht Frankfurt. A win could move them into the top half depending on other results, but a defeat may leave them cautiously looking over their shoulders at the teams below them. A cause for concern for the hosts would be their significant downturn in form in recent weeks. They are winless in six with four draws and two defeats. They are in desperate need of a victory to gain some momentum.
Dortmund, in contrast, are flying with four wins in their last five. Prior to the winter break, they had gone six games without a win in all competitions, but have since returned in excellent form. They now occupy fourth place, three points ahead of RB Leipzig in fifth and three behind Stuttgart in third. It will be a tight battle for the last two Champions League places, but a victory over Wolfsburg would strengthen Dortmund’s position.
Edin Terzic’s side are strong in both attack and defence, especially in recent weeks. Their last five games has seen them score 13 goals and concede just one. Niclas Fullkrug has scored five goals in this period. Donyell Malen has also contributed greatly with nine goals across the season. Wolfsburg will look to Jonas Wind to provide a spark for a team that struggles to put other sides away.
The last five meetings between the two sides have been dominated by Borussia Dortmund, with the club winning four and losing just once. The one Wolfsburg win came in November 2022, with Micky van de Ven and Lukas Nmecha goals securing a 2-0 victory.
Earlier this season, the pair met in the reverse fixture, which was narrowly won by the hosts, Dortmund. In what was a cagey affair for the most part, Marco Reus stepped up to score the decisive goal midway through the second half. Last season, Dortmund crushed their opponents 6-0 at home, with Karim Adeyemi and Jude Bellingham scoring a brace each, adding to further strikes from Sebastian Haller and Malen.
