VfL Wolfsburg – FC Bayern München (17 Feb 2018)

Current Form VFL Wolfsburg
Gone are the days when the VFL Wolfsburg could demand Bayern Munich in the fight for the German championship. Instead, you are dangerously close to the relegation zone this season as well, so on Saturday it can be seen as a blatant underdog. Only 4 points is the Wolfsburg lead on the relegation place, after all, still 7 on a direct relegation rank. The performances in the second half were also not very appealing. Only a victory in 2018, this quite happy thanks to a last-minute goal against Hannover (1: 0). However, you have not celebrated a single victory in this calendar year in front of your home crowd. Instead, there was a draw against VFB Stuttgart (1: 1) and a defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt (1: 3). Last weekend Werder Bremen deserved to be beaten 1-3, losing all their pressure, especially at halftime. In general, the VFL lacks pace, creativity and completion power, especially in the game. Factors that the opponent from Munich all combined in individual players. Speaking of which: Wolfsburg is also enormously dependent on individual players, does not really work as a team. After all: In the last 4 matches you could always score at least one goal. More than a sense of achievement, however, was last on 03. December 2017 in the home game against Gladbach, when you could surprisingly win 3-0. It was one of five games in which Wolfsburg conceded without conceding. No impressive value and yet the men of Martin Schmidt are among the defensively strongest in the entire German Bundesliga, have to concede 28 goals after 22 games. Only Bremen, Stuttgart and the Saturday opponent from Munich have been able to achieve better results in this statistic than the Wolfsburg. However: In the game forward you are currently too dependent on standard situations, so the hit against Werder came from a penalty, you could also book another 5 degrees after dormant balls. Stark: In the first season round with the Bayern could the VFL record a 2-2 draw, making it a 0-2 residue. However, this was the only point win in the last 7 clashes, with not even one goal in four games before the draw. Bitter: With Brooks, Tisserand and Uduokhai Coach Schmidt must pretend important defensive players, also Camacho, Gerhardt and Blaszczykowski will not be available.

Current form Bayern Munich
The form of FC Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga needs no further words. The record champion is unassailable progress, will almost certainly get the championship title. Most recently, Jupp Heynckes’ team celebrated as many as 9 wins in a row. Last weekend saw a 2-1 victory against FC Schalke 04. But the fact that the Bavarians are not untouchable has shown this result – which we had predicted in the form of an over / under bet to more than 2.5 goals. Bayern have conceded at least one goal in 4 out of the last 5 games and have twice conceded twice, although they are particularly susceptible to standard situations. Strong: 5 times in a row Bayern have scored two or more goals in the last few weeks, a bet tip in this direction is therefore also one of our other recommendations for the duel with Wolfsburg. Especially if you once again the last direct clashes with the Lower Saxony in mind, where FC Bayern delivered some peat festivals. The last away game in Wolfsburg was about equal to 6: 0 decided for themselves. The fact that Lewandowski & Co have conceded their two previous defeats here at the start of a match in foreign countries must not be ignored. Meanwhile, the last 4 matches have been won away from home, although they did not always take on a sovereign position with two 1-0 victories against Frankfurt and Stuttgart. In addition, the Munich have certainly the Champions League in mind, but in the coming week is the duel with Besitkas Istanbul and thus the knockout round of the premier class on the program. Accordingly, one or the other star could be spared on Saturday. Strengths we saw against Schalke especially in the game against the ball, also on both wings was provided for tremendous momentum. One should not forget Robert Lewandowski: The Pole scored against the “Knappen” his already 19th goal of the season and is the best scorer in the German Bundesliga. Well possible as I said, however, that against the VFL Sandro Wagner gets his chance from the start. The second best scorer Arturo Vidal (suspended) and the still injured Manuel Neuer will not be involved.

Our Prediction: FC Bayern München win @ 1.43
