Match Preview

  • Although Borussia Dortmund have scored in their last 11 Bundesliga matches (W6, D1, L4), they start this game two points worse off than their visitors. However, they’ve not conceded in any of the last seven league H2Hs (W6, D1) and are unbeaten in ten such encounters (W9, D1).
  • Interim boss Edin Terzić takes charge at home for the first time, and he’s under pressure to end a run of three straight league defeats here; only once before have Dortmund lost four consecutive Bundesliga matches at home. Starting well might help settle their nerves as they’re yet to score before the 30th minute as league hosts this term, but have only lost once (W3) after netting the opener here.
  • Wolfsburg, meanwhile, will hope to pick up where they left off in 2020 as they have lost just one of their 13 Bundesliga fixtures so far (W6, D6). A solid defence has been their hallmark, and only RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen have conceded fewer than their average of one goal per league game ahead of this round.
  • Impressively, they’ve scored in each away league game this season (W1, D4, L1), and they’ve got out of the blocks well, having scored six (75%) of their eight goals on the road before HT. However, that’s translated to just one lead at the break (HT: W1, D4, L1).
  • Players to watch: Gio Reyna scored Dortmund’s only goal in their last home league game and he’s yet to score a competitive goal before the 35th minute for the senior team. Meanwhile, having registered nine league goals already this term, Wout Weghorst (WOL) must be confident of breaking his duck against Dortmund (four games without scoring).
  • Hot stat: Prior to matchday 14, Dortmund had scored more goals after HT (21) than any other Bundesliga side this term, but only Schalke 04 and Mainz had scored fewer than Wolfsburg (seven).
