Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA (Wolfsburg).
Wolfsburg climbed up to 8th place in the Bundesliga standings after back-to-back wins over Leipzig and Frankfurt. Not many experts could have predicted such return from these two outings for the Wolves who were previously on a run of two straight defeats in the competition. A series of challenging fixtures is about to be continued for the Wolves on Saturday afternoon when they play host to Hoffenheim in one of the most interesting games of the Matchday No 14.
A win here could move Bruno Labbadia’s men lock on points with Die Kraichgauer in sixth. It would be all but a shocking scenario if we know the visitors won’t come into the match in the highest of spirits. Julian Nagelsmann’s men are winless in last three games in all competitions (two draws and a defeat). They were close to snatching the spoils last weekend when Andrej Kramaric converted the penalty to push them in front against Schalke just before the hour-mark. However, the visitors were also given a penalty as Nabil Bentaleb brought them back on level terms.
Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head
Wolfsburg have a positive record in head to head games with Die Kraichgauer.
The Wolves won 10, drew 5 and lost 6 of 21 meetings with Hoffenheim.
Die Kraichgauer have always found it tough to grab results at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA where they lost 6, drew 3 and won only 1 of 10 games against Wolfsburg.
Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim: Prediction
Admir Mehmedi, Daniel Ginczek and Wout Weghorst make a dangerous attacking line-up for Wolfsburg. This trio functioned great in the 1-2 victory over the red-hot Eintracht Frankfurt side on Sunday. Knowing they will be up against a vulnerable defensive line of Hoffenheim, we’d not be surprised to see the hosts bagging two or more goals with ease on the occasion.
To make things worse for Nagelsmann, he could easily be without his main striker Andrej Kramaric who had to be subbed five minutes after scoring a goal against Schalke last weekend. The BTTS is a banker bet at 1.50, while we will alternatively back Wolfsburg to net two or more goals in the match at the 2.10 odds.
