Dortmund Enters the Wolves' Den After Forgettable Match on the RoadPublished December 5, 2015 by Florin P
Wolfsburg seeks to extend dominance over Dortmund (5:30 p.m UK Time).
The German first division is hardly the most competitive one in Europe, with Bayern Munich expected to win the title many rounds before it officially comes to an end. While the defending champions have a significant lead over the pack, the race is very much on between Wolfsburg and Dortmund. As the two teams compete for the second-place, the outcome of the head to head games is particularly important.
Dortmund Drops Valuable Points at Hamburg
It’s been a while since the former Champions League finalists lost a match on the road against any team besides Bayern Munich. That’s why it came as a shock when Hamburg managed to score 3 unanswered goals, with Dortmund’s latest effort being inconsequential.
The defensive was subpar and unless the newly appointed manager Tuchel finds a way to patch the backline, Wolfsburg could strike a deadly blow. In fact, this was the last team to defeat them at home and the fact that they sit just seven points behind them, provides the ideal incentive.
Wolfsburg Set to Defend Flawless Home Record
Wolfsburg is one of the three teams in the German Bundesliga that are yet to lose a match in front of their fans this season. They also have the second-best defensive after Bayern Munich and managed to keep a clean sheet in each of the last three games in all competitions, including two crucial victories.
Despite all these reassuring numbers, the home side needs to take extra precautions when Dortmund come visiting. This is not going to result in the high scoring game that everyone predicts, but a rather dull encounter in which both teams exercise caution. A double chance wager on Wolfsburg to win or draw at odds of 11/10 appears to be the best choice for punters who have an account with bet365 sports.
