Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim Match Prediction

By William Hall

The draw masters Wolfsburg welcome recent strugglers Hoffenheim to the Volkswagen Arena this weekend in a game where both teams will be desperate to get back to winning ways. Wolfsburg come into this game off the back of 2-2 away draw with Bayer Leverkusen which in fairness is a good recent. It was the same scoreline for Hoffenheim last time out also as they drew with Augsburg on home soil. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With both teams struggling to win matches at the moment, it is hard to call an outright winner for the game. In the past, this fixture hasn't been one with many goals involved and with Wolfsburg's home games this season all finishing under 2.5 goals bar one this season I can see it happening again. In fact, all three of Wolfsburg last games at the Volkswagen Arena have ended 1-1, and for me, that could be the case again this weekend. Hoffenheim have been by far the better side in this early stage of the season, but with their goalscoring form drying up in the last couple of weeks I can see them struggling to break down a Wolfsburg defence which has been very stubborn so far this season. Here are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Wolfsburg Preview

Wolfsburg come into this game having drawn all of their last four games which has only been good enough to leave them 14th in the Bundesliga. Although they are doing well not to lose games, they are struggling to see off teams having thrown two leads away to take just a point from games. They will see this as the perfect time to face Hoffenheim as they are also currently struggling to go out and win matches. It's been a lack of goals which has stopped this Wolfsburg sides climbing higher up the league table, having scored just eight in eight matches. Divock Origi can hold his head up high at this stage of the season having scored two goals for the club already. If Wolfsburg are to do well this season, I am sure this player will have a huge part to play.

Wolfsburg Team News

Wolfsburg have three players who look as if they will miss the game this weekend with Gian-Luca Itter (thigh injury), Mario Gomez (ankle injury) and Sebastian Jung (ankle injury) sidelined. Two players in Jeffrey Bruma (knee injury) and John Anthony Brooks (thigh injury) have been in training this week and could make a return to action.

Hoffenheim Preview

Hoffenheim come into this game unable to win a match in their last three in all competitions and two in the Bundesliga. The first came in a 3-2 defeat to struggling Freiburg which was a huge shock before playing out a 2-2 draw with Augsburg. Both of those games are ones they would have been expected to take all three points but to take just one point from a possible six would have been frustrating for everyone at the club. Hoffenheim will still be happy with the start to the season, currently sat 4th. Mark Uth has started the season very well after being called up for the first team this season. The German has scored five goals in just 531 minutes (seven games) for the club which is a great record he will want to keep up.

Hoffenheim Team News

Hoffenheim looks as if they will be without four players this weekend with Adam Szalai (groin injury), Ermin Bicakcic (knee injury), Robin Hack (head injury) and Serge Gnabry (thigh injury) all recovering from injuries. Lukas Rupp has been training with the squad this weekend meaning he could be a back on the teamsheet this weekend.
