Our football match prediction:
Hamburger desperately needed a win against Schalke at the weekend, but they failed to get one. Die Rothosen are on a five-game winless run in Bundesliga ahead of the last match of the season, but a victory over Wolfsburg in Saturday’s football match would see them move away from bottom three. The hosts are likely to leave their hearts on the field in the game against Wolfsburg, but the Wolves are only two points clear of Hamburg in the Bundesliga standings and we predict that fans are going to see a close encounter at Volksparkstadion. Wolfsburg played out a 1-1 draw with Borussia M’gladbach at the weekend and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s game. Die Rothosen do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to pick up all three points from the decider.

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.
