          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.

          Wolfsburg will have a few players missing for this fixture. Lukas Nmecha has a knee injury which will sideline him until the end of this month. Aster Vranckx and Rogerio will be absent until early March with thigh and hip injuries respectively. Patrick Wimmer has been out with a knock but will be hoping to return.

          Form Guide


          In their last five games, Wolfsburg have lost one and drawn four. Their winless streak actually stretches further back to six games, dating back to December. Last time out at relegation-battling Union Berlin, they fell to a 1-0 defeat with the goal coming in the 25th minute of first-half stoppage time. The game was delayed due to fan protests. They had more possession and far more shot attempts, but Wolfsburg could not find the back of the net.

          This result followed four straight draws. The first of which came against Mainz in mid-January. They took the lead through Vaclav Cerny, but could not hold on. Once again, they opened the scoring against Heidenheim with a goal from Cerny, but similarly relinquished their advantage just before half-time.

          Their third straight 1-1 draw was at home to Koln. This time they had to come from behind, but were only down for two minutes before Kevin Paredes levelled the score. Another comeback was needed to pick up a point against eight place Hoffenheim, as they drew 2-2. The visitors struck first in the sixth minute thanks to Maximilian Beier, though Lovro Majer hit back 13 minutes into the second half. Grischa Promel restored the lead for Hoffenheim, but Majer came to the rescue once more to salvage yet another point.

          Borussia Dortmund

          In their last five games, Borussia Dortmund have won four and drawn one. They have entered a good run of form at a crucial part of the season. This stretch of games began with a 3-0 win at bottom-side Darmstadt. Second-half goals from Marco Reus and Youssoufa Moukoko added to Julian Brandt’s opener. They followed this up with another dominant win, putting four past Koln. Donyell Malen bagged a brace, whilst Niclas Fullkrug converted from the spot. Moukoko scored his second in as many games.

          A return home against Bochum also produced a comfortable victory, as they won 3-1. This was the only goal they conceded in this five-game period. Fullkrug scored a hat-trick, which included two penalties. Their only dropped points came away at Heidenheim, who held them to a goalless draw. The most recent fixture was last weekend’s game against Freiburg. It was another three goals and clean sheet as Malen and Fullkrug got on the scoresheet once again.
