101 Great Goals score prediction: Wolfsburg 1 – Borussia Dortmund 3

The Bundesliga returned with perfect German efficiency last weekend following football’s hiatus during the coronavirus pandemic.

Borussia Dortmund looked sharp and focused as they beat Schalke 4-0 in the Revierderby.

However, BVB remain four points behind Bayern Munich in the title race after the Bavarians beat Union Berlin 2-0.

Wolfsburg, who are chasing a spot in next season’s Europa League, also returned to action with a fine 2-1 win away at Augsburg.

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Who will win?

Despite Wolfsburg’s win last weekend, the bookies are firmly behind Borussia Dortmund in this one.

Borussia Dortmund are 7/10 to win on the road, while Wolfsburg can be backed at a chunky 7/2.

When it comes to the first scorer in the game, Erling Haaland is the favourite at 20/21.

Haaland has scored 13 goals in 12 matches for Dortmund since his move from Salzburg in January. He has 41 goals in all competitions this season.

Jadon Sancho is priced at 5/2 to be the first scorer, and 6/5 to score anytime.

As for Wolfsburg, Admir Mehmedi is available at 7/2 to score the opener and 5/2 to score in the match.

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund match preview

Wolfsburg come into Saturday’s match on a 7-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga.

Daniel Ginczek was the hero for Wolfsburg at Augsburg last weekend when he scored an injury-time winner for the visitors.

Renato Steffen opened for Die Wolves, however Tin Jedvaj levelled for the hosts.

That win left Wolfsburg in 6th spot, and at the head of the pack featuring Freiburg, Schalke, and Hoffenheim for a Europa League spot next season.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund, hyped after winning the derby against Schalke, are still trying to hunt down Bayern Munich with their fresh-faced side of superstars.

Manager Lucien Favre is blessed with one of the best collection of young talent seen for some time.

Dortmund are motoring in the Bundesliga following five wins in a row.

Will they blaze a trial with another away win at the Volkswagen Arena?


Who will score for Wolfsburg?

Wolfsburg’s big problem this season has been goals. They’ve only scored 36 in 26 games.

Dutch striker Wout Weghorst has 11 goals, while Steffen is second with 5.

However, Wolfsburg have one of the meanest defences in the Bundesliga having conceded only 31 times.

So can the hosts frustrate in-form Dortmund? Well, Wolfsburg have held RB Leipzig at home, while they’ve beaten Borussia Monchengladbach on home soil too this season.

On the other hand, Wolfsburg’s recent home form is patchy. They only have two wins in their last nine home games.

Also, Wolfsburg’s head-to-head record with Dortmund is lousy.

Dortmund have won eight of the last nine match-ups, while Wolfsburg haven’t scored against BVB in their last six encounters.


Can Borussia Dortmund win the Bundesliga?

Every game is a must-win match for Borussia Dortmund if they hope to pip Bayern to the Bundesliga.

And, if there’s been any chink in BVB’s performances this season, that’s been their away form.

Dortmund have only picked up 6 away wins in 13 attempts. By contrast, Bayern have 9 away wins and only 2 defeats.

However, considering Dortmund’s current form, it seems difficult to predict anything but an away win on Saturday.


Wolfsburg team news vs Borussia Dortmund

Wolfsburg have three long-term absentees in their squad.

Josuha Guilavogui (knee), William (ACL) and Yannick Gerhardt (broken nose) will all miss the Dortmund game.

In more positive news, Ignacio Camacho could feature after a recent ankle problem.


Borussia Dortmund team news vs Wolfsburg

Dortmund’s win against Schalke came despite a long injury list at the club.

Indeed, in the warm-up before the Schalke game, 17-year-old Gio Reyna picked up a knock which forced him to miss the match and possibly his first start for the club.

Jadon Sancho also missed the Schalke game, and could return against Wolfburg.

Elsewhere, midfielders Axel Witsel and Emre Can are unlikely to return this weekend.

Marco Reus has a groin problem, Dan-Axel Zagadou is out with a knee issue and Nico Schulz has a muscle injury.
