Wolfsburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Predictions and Match Preview

Wolfsburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).

For Wolfsburg a win is mandatory, considering their proximity to the playoff positions to Europa League, and the fact that just nine more rounds remain in the competition. They are just below Leverkusen, who currently is in possession of the last European spot, and has a three-point deficit. Considering they don’t have to worry about their future in the league, it’s imperative they go in for the win.

Same is the case for Duesseldorf. For them actually, things are little less complicated. They are not in danger of getting relegated, which is the first point.

Additionally, and importantly, they don’t realistically stand a chance to gain much either, since the team has to make up an 11-point gap to take a shot at the top-six positions. All that remains is punter’s luck, and with their nothing-to-lose attitude, the team will try for the win.

Wolfsburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Prediction

Either team will give all they have on the pitch to secure the win. With no relegation fight to look over their heads, the teams have nothing to lose, and a lot to gain. A loss will not matter to them much, whereas a win will mean a great deal. A perfect setting for a fierce set of ninety minutes filled with goals.

Moreover, excluding just one h2h game, the remaining had goals from both teams as well as three or more goals. Also, take into account that Wolfsburg recorded two or more goals in five of their last seven home ties, while Fortuna managed to find the back of the net in nine of their last ten away ties.
