Borussia Dortmund vs. Wolfsburg Match Analysis and Prediction

Borussia Dortmund reckons to start the New Year on a high note as they have a chance to leapfrog their opponents this weekend. The side play host to Wolfsburg at the Signal Iduna Park on Sunday with kickoff at 5:30 pm.

The visitors head into the match occupying a Champions League qualification spot after losing only one of their opening 13 matches. The hosts head into the match, coming off a 2-0 win against Frankfurt.

It proves to a mixed start for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, who recently terminated Lucien Favre’s contract after a string of poor performances. Edin Terzic is currently acting as the interim manager.

A major boost for Terzic will be the return of Golden Boy Erling Haaland from his hamstring injury. The Black and Yellow have won four league games that Haaland missed at the back end of 2020.

16-year-old star Youssoufa Moukoko earned an opportunity in his absence to lead the attacking line. He became the youngest goalscorer in Bundesliga history following their 2-1 defeat to Union Berlin.

Wolfsburg had remained absent in Europe’s elite competition since their 2015-16 campaign when Real Madrid edged them out in the quarter-finals. However, Oliver Glasner looks to have made a strong side capable of returning to the Champions League. The side has only been defeated domestically by Bayern Munich.
