Our match prediction:
Andre Schurrle secured Wolfsburg’s pass to the Champions League quarter finals with a late goal against Ghent (1-0), even though the Belgian club pressured Hecking’s defenders for most of the match. Now die Wolfe travel to Hoffenheim, hoping to record a third consecutive triumph in the Bundesliga. Volkswagen Arena outfit have been rather successful against die Kraichgauer in recent matches, but failed to take all three points in their previous two visits to Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena. Julian Nagelsmann’s men suffered a heavy loss against Stuttgart in the previous round (5-1), and are up for a heavy battle in order to avoid relegation, as they stand five points adrift from the safe zone. However, Hoffenheim have been rather successful on home soil of late and will not present an easy meet for the team from Lower Saxony. We predict an interesting clash this Saturday, while giving a slight advantage to the visitors.
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.
