Betting tip 1st German Bundesliga: VfL Wolfsburg - Borussia Dortmund
Tuesday, 20.09.2016 at 20:00
Start into the English week
German Bundesliga already continues this Tuesday. This round’s top match is Vfl Wolfsburg versus Borussia Dortmund. Both teams want to stay close to record champion Bayern Munich. Kick-off is September 20 at 8 PM.
Current form Vfl Wolfsburg
The financially strong club from the hometown of VW is currently not performing as well as they hoped for. Their start into the season was okay, after all they are still undefeated after three rounds, but they only won one of these games. They beat Augsburg in their season opener 2:0. That was two weeks ago. After that victory the team from Lower Saxony started to struggle on offense despite the fact that they have great offensive players like Mario Gomez or Jakub Blszzcykowski on their team. The only drew 0:0 against 1. FC Cologne as well as against TSG Hoffenheim. Against Cologne Wolfsburg can consider them lucky that they didn’t lose, because Cologne had far better chances to score, but weren’t able to use them. Wolfsburg currently isn’t able to convert their ball possession into goals. So it’s very bitter that new signee Daniel Didavi might miss the game against Dortmund. He has been one of the few players who performed well so far, but the offensive midfielder has knee problems. Defensively Vfl is very strong right now. Especially new inside defender Jeffrey Bruma has been outstanding lately.
Current form Borussia Dortmund
No signs of lack of offensive power in Dortmund. Just the opposite is the case. Thomas Tuchel’s team scored an unbelievable 12 (!) goals in their last two games. First they beat Legia Warsaw away 6:0 at the start of Champions League groupe phase and last weekend they won again 6:0 against SV Darmstadt at Signal Iduna Parc, even though Tuchel rested quite a lot of his key players. So young players like Pulisic or jokers like Ramos got the chance to be in the starting eleven. And they didn’t disappoint at all. Now BVB can count on a well-rested team against Wolfsburg. Tuchel’s team has picked up speed after a mediocre start into the season, when they played 2:1 against Mainz and 0:1 against Leipzig. The only area that is troublesome for coach tuchel is defense. Subotic and Durm will be out for sure against Wolfsburg and Sven Bender is questionable. Marc Batra, Sokratis and world champion Matthias Ginter should be adequate alternatives though. Additionally Dortmund’s defensive line-up should have enough self-confidence, after all they only received one goal in the last three games.
Both teams are playing great defense at the moment. Wolfsburg hasn’t received a single goal yet. Additionally it’s a home game for the “Wolves”. Because of Dortmund’s offensive power we believe that the Tuchel-Eleven will be able to win this close game. Our recommendation: Tipp 2.
