The Dortmund vs Wolfsburg match will be played on Saturday, February 18, at the Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund. This is one of the round 21 Bundesliga matches. Borussia Dortmund is currently 4th on the table with 34 points, while Wolfsburg is currently 14th on the table with 22 points.


  • Dortmund was defeated in their last 2 matches, against last placed Darmstadt in the league and against Benfica in Champions League. In addition, they failed to score more than once in their last 5 games.
  • Wolfsburg finally recorded a victory last week, after losing 3 times in a row. Prior to the match against Hoffenheim they won by 2-1, Wolfsburg failed to score more than once in 5 straight games.


In their previous 10 meetings, Dortmund recorded 5 victories, Wolfsburg defeated them 3 times, while 2 matches ended as a draw. It is interesting that in 9 out of those 10 matches we saw over 2.5 goals and both teams scored at least once. In that only match with under 2.5 goals the result was 2-0.


Dortmund is not in a great form at the moment. They failed to score in the first leg against Benfica and they even missed a penalty. They also had a dreadful weekend in Darmstadt and now they simply must win the match against Wolfsburg or they will fall from 4th position. Dortmund wanted to challenge Bayern Munich, but they can even lose the top 4 position if they continue performing like they did in their last two matches.

Latest matches: Borussia Dortmund

29.01.2017 Bund 1 FSV Mainz 05 Borussia Dortmund 1:1 D


Several players with immense quality left Wolfsburg in the year and a half and that immediately affected their position. From the team which is a serious title contender, they became a team which fights against relegation. They won't be relegated, but it is hard to believe they will return in Bundesliga top 4 in the forthcoming season.

Latest matches: VfL Wolfsburg

12.02.2017 Bund VfL Wolfsburg 1899 Hoffenheim 2:1 W
07.02.2017 DFB Bayern Munich VfL Wolfsburg 1:0 L
04.02.2017 Bund 1 FC Cologne VfL Wolfsburg 1:0 L
28.01.2017 Bund VfL Wolfsburg FC Augsburg 1:2 L
21.01.2017 Bund VfL Wolfsburg Hamburger SV 1:0 W


Both teams are in a bad form and their attackers are inefficient. On the other hand, tradition says we will see plenty of goals in the forthcoming match.
