Market: Wolfsburg win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Looking to shore up their Champions League spot on Saturday afternoon, Wolfsburg will welcome away day strugglers Koln to The Volkswagen Arena.
Starting with the hosts, while Wolfsburg might have suffered back-to-back defeats when opening March, they have bounced back in an eye-catching fashion. Heading into the international break with a 2-1 win away at Werder Bremen, The Greens managed to kick on from their thumping 5-0 romp against Schalke. Still sat in pole position to secure themselves a Champions League spot for next season, Oliver Glasner’s side have gained plenty of plaudits from across Germany this year. With leading marksman Wout Weghorst now finding the net in his last three contests on the spin, Wolfsburg have also gained a reputation for their success on home soil. Including that 5-0 drumming against Schalke earlier in the month, Saturday’s hosts have remarkably not lost a single fixture at The Volkswagen Arena throughout the whole 2020/21 campaign.
As for the visitors, after being left heartbroken thanks to a last-gasp equalizer from Borussia Dortmund in their action-packed 2-2 draw earlier in the month, Koln have continued on a real worrying run of form. Enduring what many have billed as their worst run of the season so far, The Billy Goats find themselves at the heart of a real relegation scrap. Managing to muster themselves just a pair of points from their last six Bundesliga matchups and sat in the relegation play-off spot, Markus Gisdol’s side have also continued to show a string of issues on their travels. Last seen away from The RheinEnergieStadion getting hit with a 2-1 defeat against Union Berlin, Koln have lost each of their last three fixtures on the road and have also lost five of their last six away day contests. Given the huge gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home win on Saturday afternoon.
