Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 8 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena.
Incidentally, the Wolves are the only team yet to suffer a defeat this season in the competition along with Leverkusen, and have posted some impressive defensive stats in the process as well. In fact, only Borussia Dortmund have conceded fewer goals than them.
However, it needs to be mentioned that Oliver Glasner’s men have not made a great start to their season. They have so far won just a single game, and despite their unbeaten status, they have placed themselves just in the mid-table.
Likely, they are desperate for the three points this weekend.
Meanwhile, Die Kraichgauer have been struggling lately to consistently post points on the board, and they have an inferior h2h record against this opponent.
As such, expect Wolfsburg to give their 100% on the pitch, and secure themselves a positive result.
Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns, the Wolves recorded a 2-3 win away from home.
- They had also registered eight of the preceding eleven overall wins.
- In the past eleven years, the guests have posted a single win at this stadium.
- The hosts have scored two or more goals in nine of the former twelve clashes at this venue.
- The latest encounter at this venue had ended in a 1-1 draw.
Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
Glasner’s men recorded a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, against Hertha. In the meantime, Sebastian Hoeneb’s men lost 1-3 at home against Union Berlin.
Going on, the Wolves were invincible in 12 of their preceding 13 overall games and their only defeat in 2020-21 had come in the Europa League.
At home, not only have they remained unbeaten throughout this whole campaign, but have only conceded a single goal.
On the other hand, Die Kraichgauer were winless in four of their last six overall match-ups, and they have kept a single clean sheet in their last 12 games.
On the road, their only league win in 2020-21 had come against Koln (one of the worst teams in the competition), and they have kept clean sheets in just three of their road trips in the whole of 2020. And one of these were against Mainz, possibly the worst squad in the German top flight.
On top of all that, Glasner’s men have a dominating h2h record against this rival over the years.
Taking all these stats into account, expect a great performance this weekend from Wolfsburg.
