Stats

Possession

Wolfsburg 33% - 67% BVB

Shots

Wolfsburg 1 - 3 BVB

Shots on Target

Wolfsburg 0 - 1 BVB

Hazard on Fire

Only Jadon Sancho (15) and Thomas Müller (16) have registered more assists than Hazard (12) this season.

BVB lead 1-0 in a game that has not had many talking points. It was clear than Wolfsburg plan was to hold a solid shape and press whenever possible and counter attack. Whereas, Dortmund have had to be patient but at times have been sloppy with the ball in the final third. Haaland has not seen much of the ball at all and will be looking to be more involved in the second half.

Watch Dortmund's Goal

Half Time

Wolfsburg 0-1 Borussia Dortmund 

43'

Dortmund with a quick play which sees them move into the Wolfsburg half with two or three passes. The ball falls for Hazard on the edge of the box but he drags his shot just wide. A good chance for BVB.

42'

It has been a frustrating first half for Wolfsburg striker, Weghorst who has not had the service he would have liked so far. The ball by Steffan over the top was well over hit.

Arnold takes the free kick but the ball is hit straight into Burki's hands. BVB held their line very well and the ball was overhit. A missed opportunity for Wolfsburg.

38'

A free kick for Wolfsburg just inside the BVB half 

37'

Dortmund have slowed the game back down and begun to pass the ball very nicely.

36'

Wolfsburg left-back, Roussillion has picked up a knock and is limping. We will see if he runs it off but if he goes off he will be a big loss for The Wolves.

33'

Wolfsburg had been very solid in defence so far but BVB would not lay off the pressure and found themselves 1-0 up!

Dortmund have finally found the back of the net in this game. A quick build up play on the right hand side sees a lovely piece of skill by Brandt. The ball is then crossed along the floor into the box and Guerreiro is at the back post by himself and taps the ball into the back of the net! 

31| GOAAALLLLLLL Dortmund

Guerreiro taps the ball in at the back post to make it 1-0 Dortmund 

30'

Another frustrating end to BVB's attack. Dortmund need one of their players to make the magic happen because they have been very quiet. As soon as Dortmund win the ball, the Wolfsburg players all drop into a solid shape.

28'

Wolfsburg are doing very well defensively so far in the game and are stopping Dortmund from creating anything decent. Haaland has been very quite so far.

24'

Another poor ball by BVB is intercepted and Mehmedi crosses the ball deep into the Dortmund box but the Wolfsburg striker goes for goal and heads wide but should have headed the ball back across the box.

22'

Haaland almost found himself through on goal but Delaney's pass was just over hit and the Wolfsburg keeper, Casteels is quick off his line to stop the danger.

19'

Wolfsburg main threat is coming down the right-hand side from Mbabu. He has already put a number of good crosses into the Dortmund box but has not been able to find anyone yet. Dortmund will need to close the crosses down as Weghorst will find himself on the end of one soon.

7'

A poor clearance by Burki is intercepted on the wing, which leads to a cross by Mbabu but it is well defended by Hummels and the keeper collects the ball.

Dortmund can't afford to slip up

Every game is a must win for Dortmund especially today's and their next game. Dortmund face league leaders Bayern Munich on Tuesday night and will want to go into that game knowing if they win, the gap will close to 1 point. However, they must ensure they win today in order to put the pressure on Bayern.

"Head and shoulders above everyone else in the league, apart from Bayern"

German journalist Raphael Honigstein's thought on how good BVB have been this season... Do you agree?

Can the Wolves stop Dortmund?

Dortmund have won their last four in Wolfsburg, whilst the Wolves have never lost five in a row to one opposition.

Borussia Dortmund Team News

Jadon Sancho and Emre Can are both expected to return back to the starting line-up this week with Delaney and Dahoud dropping to the bench. Dortmund will once again be without captain Marco Reus, who is rumoured to be out for the rest of the season, struggling with an adductor injury. Youngster Giovanni Reyna will probably be on the bench again this week but is rumoured to be fit, after pulling up in the warm up before last week’s game. Reyna was back fully training today.

Wolfsburg Team News

Top goalscorer Wout Weghorst will return to the starting XI, following a one-game suspension. Wolfsburg will once again be without captain, Joshua Guilavogui who is still side-lined with knee problems. Midfielder Yannick Gerhardt is also missing for this game, as he is still recovering from a facial fracture.


Erling Haaland

Haaland continued his tremendous form last week when he opened the scoring against Schalke. The Norwegian striker now has 10 goals for Dortmund this season in nine games, scoring a goal in the league every 60 minutes. Despite only making his debut in the Bundesliga in January, only ten players have scored more goals than the striker. Haaland will more than likely continue his goal scoring form against Wolfsburg this Saturday.

History not on Wolfsburg's side

The previous meeting between the two sides this season ended in a dominating 3-0 victory for Dortmund; with Hazard, Guerreiro and Götze grabbing the goals that day. Dortmund have won eight out of the last nine meetings between the teams, with the other being a 0-0 draw. You have to go back to September 2016 for the last time Wolfsburg scored in the league against Dortmund and even further back to May 2015, for the last time Wolfsburg beat Dortmund in the league. In the last nine league meetings Dortmund have scored 24 goals and only conceded 3.

Dortmund win Revierderby in Style

Dortmund returned to football in style with a dominating 4-0 victory over Revier rivals Schalke. Erling Haaland once again found himself on the scoresheet, with his tenth goal in nine games; whilst Raphaël Guerreiro scored a brace and Thorgan Hazard also got himself on the scoresheet. Dortmund managed to embarrass their rivals without the help of Marco Reus, Axel Witsel and Emre Can who were all side-lined and wonder kid Jadon Sancho also started on the bench.

Wolfsburg Return in Dramatic Fashion

Wolfsburg made a dramatic return to the Bundesliga last week after scoring a 91st minute winner against Augsburg. Wolfsburg were in control for the majority of the game with Mbabu and Otavio continually causing problems down the flanks. Both full-backs registered assists in the win against Augsburg, providing crosses which were turned in.

Kick-off Time

VfL Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund will be played at the Volkswagen Arena, in Wolfsburg, Germany. The kick-off is scheduled at 14:30 GMT.
