One of two Central matches of the 27th round of the Bundesliga will be the match in Wolfsburg, where the local “Wolves” take the second team of the season – Borussia Dortmund. Of special interest this fight causes among Ukrainian football fans, because if anyone has forgotten during the quarantine, “Wolfsburg” is Shakhtar’s rival in Europa League.
A week ago both teams have successfully renewed themselves for the season. Dortmund in the Ruhr Derby defeated Schalke with 4:0, and continued pursuit of Bayern. The gap to Bayern is 4 points, and any loss of points can be a very serious blow to their championship ambitions of the team of Lucien favr.
The “Wolfsburg” a week ago, won “Augsburg” with a score 2:1 and led the peloton the teams that are fighting for the sixth, the last European place. The advantage over the “Freiburg” and Schalke are just two points, and “Hoffenheim” with “Cologne” is also still not dropped out of the fight for sixth place, so to Wolfsburg, and Borussia, there is no margin for error.
Both teams will approach the match not in optimum structures. Wolfsburg will not play the defenders, William and Yannick Gerhardt and midfielder Joshua Guilavogui.
The loss of Borussia Dortmund is even more significant. Lucien Favre will not be able to count on Axel Witsel, Emre Gian, Giovanni Raina and Marco Reus, who may miss the rest of the season.
Despite personnel problems, the “Borussia” is pronounced the favorite of the match. The odds on the away win is 1.85, the “Wolfsburg” – 4,44. The probability of a draw at 4.00.
