Wolfsburg vs Koln
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA, Wolfsburg.
Wolfsburg need a point against the already-relegated Koln to be mathematically safe, at least when it comes to the battle for avoiding the automatic relegation and bottom two spots. They could also move out of the relegation playoffs position with a win here and Freiburg’s loss at home to Augsburg given they have a superior goal-difference on Fuggerstadter.
Nevertheless, Wolfsburg’s form suggests anything but a pleasant afternoon for the local fans at VW Arena since Bruno Labbadia’s men lost three on the bounce conceding three or more goals in each of games in the process. The good news for the German manager is the return of Paul Verhaegh who could force Labbadia to shift to 4-3-3 formation with him on the right-back.
Wolfsburg vs Koln: Head-to-head
Wolves will rely on the head to head stats which reveal they have a five-win lead on Koln after 26 matches.
Wolfsburg lost just 1 of 12 home encounters with the Billy Goats, with 7 wins in the bag at the same time.
Interestingly, none of last five head to head meetings produced three or more goals.
Wolfsburg failed to score at all in last three meetings with the Billy Goats.
Wolfsburg vs Koln: Prediction
Koln conceded two or more goals in each of last four league ties, they have nothing to play for here, and we believe the time has come for Wolfsburg to finally score in matches against the Billy Goats.
The hosts will be desperate to grab the spoils here and we believe they’ll go strong from the very first whistle which makes the HT/FT Wolfsburg/Wolfsburg bet look good at the odds of 2.50.
Nevertheless, Stephan Ruthenbeck’s men scored at least once in six of last seven games on the road in Bundesliga. You can have Wolfsburg to win & BTTS at 3.00. The BTTS bet is paid at 1.57.
