Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Friday’s football game between Borussia M’gladbach and Wolfsburg will open round 11 of the new Bundesliga campaign. Die Fohlen have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Jordan Siebatcheu has joined the likes of Ko Itakura, Tobias Sippel, Hannes Wolf, Tony Jantschke, Jonas Omlin, and Stefan Lainer in the recovery room, with Robin Hack likely to step up.
The Wolves, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Werder Bremen. As Wolfsburg looked sharp up front in their last league match as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Defender Maxence Lacroix is sidelined through suspension, while all Sebastiaan Bornauw, Patrick Wimmer, Lukas Nmecha, Kilian Fischer, and Felix Lange remain on the sidelines with injuries, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Marvin Friedrich):
Marvin Friedrich is a product of FSC Guxhagen football school. The German footballer played for the likes of OSC Vellmar, Paderborn and Schalke during his youth career as well before making his senior debut with die Knappen.
Marvin Friedrich scored 4 goals in 30 appearances for Schalke B before he started playing for the senior team. The German defender made his Bundesliga debut on September 13, 2014 in a 4-1 loss to Borussia M’gladbach. Nowadays Friedrich plays for Union Berlin as he signed a permanent deal with the Bundesliga side on July 5, 2019. His main position is centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both left and right back as well.
Friedrich’s contract with Union Berlin expires on June 30, 2022. The versatile defender has yet to make his debut with the Germany senior team, but he has four caps with Germany U20 and three with Germany U19 respectively.
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.
