Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg face each other at Signal Iduna Park in what is expected one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Yellow-Blacks proved their worth in a come-from-behind 4-2 win over Freiburg and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. Barring any fresh injury worries, Edin Terzic is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Christian Streich’s troops. All Julien Duranville, Mateu Morey, and Thomas Meunier are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Wolves, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim, with the team beating Union Berlin on home soil. Wolfsburg, though, are not regarded as good travellers and given their negative record at Signal-Iduna-Park, home win should be considered. All Maxence Lacroix, Lukas Nmecha, Kilian Fisher, and Felix Lange are out of contention with injuries, speaking of the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Marco Reus):
Marco Reus is a German football player who was born on 31 May, 1989. The pacey attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, started his senior career at Rot Weiss Ahlen and it has to be noted that he made 43 league appearances for the club in lower leagues.
In 2009 he signed a four-year contract with Borussia M’gladbach and he scored his first Bundesliga goal against Mainz on 28 August, 2009. After impressing with the Fohlen in the 2011/2012 Bundesliga campaign, he joined Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. He has been playing for the Millionaires ever since and he represents Germany on the international stage as well.
However, he was more than unfortunate to miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup with injury when Joachim Low’s team lifted the prestigious trophy. To make things even worse for Marco Reus, he was forced to withdraw from the Germany Euro 2016 squad as well (injury). The German ace has a contract with Borussia Dortmund which expires on 30 June, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsburg):
Wolfsburg are a German football club founded in the aftermath of the World War II (1945). Die Wolfe (The Wolves) wear green and white shirts and they play their home games at Volkswagen Arena. The capacity of the stadium is 30,000 and it was opened on 13 December, 2002.
It is well known that German car manufacturer Volkswagen are the club’s main sponsors. Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga trophy in 2009 and the likes of Edin Dzeko, Grafite and Zvjezdan Misimovic were part of the club’s golden generation.
You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football.
