Wolfsburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf: Match Preview
VfL Wolfsburg snapped out of their poor run and secured their first three points of the calendar year after beating ten-man SC Paderborn 4-2 in a breathtakingly hectic encounter at the Benteler-Arena last Sunday.
Getting to Europa League for second year in a row might be a too much to ask of Oliver Glasner and his side but with them sitting at 9th, seven points off Schalke, all cards remain still on the table.
After an impeccable opening period, the Wolves seems to struggle at Volkswagen Arena from November onward, getting just four points since; they were really close against Hertha two weeks ago but lack of concentration and fortitude was their undoing as Berliners came to win after being behind.
Uwe Rosler’s Bundesliga debut ended in huge frustration as a last-second equalizer by Eintracht Frankfurt’s American midfielder Timothy Chandler denied Fortuna Düsseldorf and gave the teams a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
That made for first point for unfortunate Rheinlander side in the New Year and just about enough to rise above Paderborn to 17th place, two points off Mainz and extending their Bundesliga stay.
To this day, Fortuna remains the most ineffective team on the road, tied with Union Berlin with just five points collected but with bit worse goal difference, without a win since August 17th and snatch and run they’ve pulled at Bremen.
Niklas Klinger and Ignacio Camacho won’t be ready to face Fortuna whilst Rosler have bunch of players unavailable or unfit to play, among others Matthias Zimmermann, Dawid Kownacki, Tim Wiesner, Kenan Karaman, Valon Berisha and Zackary Thomas Steffen.

Wolfsburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Prediction
Having watched them in the last couple of games, improvements are visible for Oliver Glasner’s side though their wastefulness and lack of concentration in deciding moments has costs them lots of points. Still, I believe they have enough about themselves to get one off the worst away team in the league.
As I said previously, Wolfsburg at home equals bore-ish games and lack of goals. They’re yet to let me down whenever I put my money on this, and it is very unlikely they’ll do so against side like Fortuna.
