Our football match prediction:
Borussia Dortmund suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to relegation strugglers Darmstadt at the weekend. The Millionaires were totally outplayed by the rock-bottom side at Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion am Bollenfalltor and, as things stand now, they are unlikely to put an end to Bayern Munich’s dominance in the German top flight. Thomas Tuchel’s men sit in fourth place in the Bundesliga standings ahead of Matchday 21 and they face a must-win situation in Saturday’s football match against Wolfsburg. Borussia Dortmund are eager to get back on course and seeing that Wolfsburg chiefs sold key players in the January transfer window, we predict that the Millionaires will return to winning ways in the national championship. The Wolves came from behind to beat Hoffenheim in their last league match, but it is well known that they struggle on the road and the visitors are unlikely to grab something from Saturday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang):
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the most famous Gabonese player and he is the first footballer from Gabon to appear in Bundesliga. Aubameyang played for the likes of Dijon, Lille, Monaco and St. Etienne in the past before joining Borussia Dortmund on July, 2013. The pacey attacker signed a five-year contract with the Millionaires and he has been producing outstanding performances with the Signal-Iduna-Park outfit ever since. Aubameyang impressed in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign, scoring 25 goals in 31 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, but that did not help Thomas Tuchel’s men win the domestic trophy. Speaking of his international career, the 187-cm-tall striker made his Gabon debut on 25 March, 2009 and he scored his first goal for the national team in a 3-2 win over Morocco. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang helped Gabon make it to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals. It has to be noted, though, that he played for France U-21 team in the past. Aubameyang was born in Laval, France on 18 June, 1989.
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.
