Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg Match Preview
The Bavarians usually have had to deal with the enthusiastic Dortmund in search for the title, but this season has so far proved to be following a different script. The likes of Monchengladbach, Leipzig, Schalke etc have raised their levels to make Bayern’s life tough.
The Munich outfit need to get back to their menacing best as soon as they could, if they are not to be challenged mercilessly in the final weeks for the Bundesliga crown.
Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Bayern were almost held to a draw the last match-day on the road, by Freiburg. The score was tied at 1-1 even into the injury time, but the vast experience the Bavarians have had in dealing with crunch situations came to their aid, as they scored twice in the space of 180 seconds, after 90+2 minutes had passed on the game clock.
Meanwhile, Wolfsburg had to dig deep to find the equalizer at home, against Schalke the last match-day. The hosts were trailing 0-1 even with just ten minutes left till final whistle, but Kevin Mbabu appeared savior for Wolfsburg in the 82nd minute, as he helped the home team to salvage a point.
This weekend, logic dictates that Bayern hold the upper hand. The prime reason for the deduction will be the frightening superiority they hold in h2h clashes over this opponent.
To quote some stats – Bayern have won nine of the previous ten such games, and drew the tenth. They had also recorded 30 of the preceding 33 wins, and had won the latest such fixture with a 6-0 scoreline.
Going on, the Bavarians have scored a total of 35 goals from the past ten h2h meetings, and have lost just once against this opponent since 2009.
In addition, at this venue, Bayern have been the top dog by a mile, over Wolfsburg. The former have not lost a single h2h clash at home in the past two decades, and frighteningly, won 24 of the previous 26 meetings here, while drawing the remaining two.
Moreover, the Munich outfit had managed to score a total of 50 goals from the previous 17 face-to-face meetings at this stadium, while keeping clean sheets in 12 of the last 21 such encounters.
Coming to recent form, Bayern are on a three-game winning streak, and Robert Lewandowski still is on a mission to break Gerd Muller’s record for most goals in a Bundesliga season.
The team has also won seven of the previous nine overall games, and have won 17 of the former 20 in front of the home crowd.
On the other hand, Wolfsburg were winless in 11 of their last 15 overall fixtures, and remained so in five of their preceding seven on the road.
Considering all these factors together, the defending champions Bayern Munich are rightfully on course to register another massive win against Wolfsburg this weekend.
