Our football match prediction:
Eintracht-Stadion will host Monday’s football game between Eintracht Braunschweig and Wolfsburg. A place in the German top flight is at stake and, no doubt, there will be fireworks when the two teams face each other in the return leg of the Bundesliga play-offs. Torsten Lieberknecht’s men were more than unfortunate not to grab something from a 1-0 loss to Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena, but they are definitely capable of making life difficult for the Wolves in front of home fans. Eintracht Braunschweig are eyeing their sixth consecutive win on home soil and we predict that they will emerge triumphant in the second leg. Mario Gomez scored the winner for Wolfsburg from a suspicious penalty, but it is well known that the Wolves often struggle on the travels and that is yet another reason why away win should not be considered. In their last meeting at Eintracht-Stadion the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
Highligted Player (Vieirinha):
Better known as Vieirinha, Adelino Andre Vieira de Freitas originates from Guimaraes, and it was at Vitoria Guimaraes that he spent seven years before joining FC Porto academy in 2002. Despite getting promoted to the senior side in 2005, the winger was never given a chance to impress at Estadio do Dragao and following several loan spells, he opted to sign for Greek giants PAOK. Vieirinha clearly profited from exposure to first team football, scoring 18 goals in 78 league matches for the club. His impressive displays did not go unnoticed and Wolfsburg soon came calling. Despite arriving at the club as a right winger, the Portuguese footballer was eventually converted to right-back near the end of the 2014/2015 season and has since impressed in his new position. After representing his country at various youth levels, Vieirinha received his first call-up to the senior squad in November 2011, but he had to wait until March 2013 to be handed his debut. The experienced footballer, nonetheless, secured his place in the 2014 World Cup squad, making one appearance at the tournament finals.
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.
