Borussia Dortmund will edge closer to the 12th place in Bundesliga should they win against Wolfsburg on Wednesday. The only problem is that Wolfsburg at this moment are on the second place in Bundesliga, 9 points behind the leaders, while Borussia Dortmund are on the 16th, 25 points behind Bayern Munich. This match will be Borussia Dortmund’s last one played at home, and Jürgen Klopp wants to reward the loyal fans with a win.
The hosts suffered their ninth defeat in this first half of the campaign after they went down with 1-0 against Hertha Berlin. The only goal of the match came after once again Dortmund lost the ball in their own midfield area, since Marco Reus is still out with injury. In the match against Wolfsburg, Dortmund will be without Mkhitaryan, sidelined for six weeks, which leaves much more space for Wolfsburg to take advantage of.
The Wolves are currently on an unbeaten run of four matches, and their last week result is an unexpected 1-1 draw against Paderborn. This draw positioned them six points ahead of Bayer Leverkusen and so far they have scored29 goals in 15 matches and conceded 14, which has them on the third place defensive wise. De Bruyne is the best for goal assists in Bundesliga and Olic has scored five goals so far. Their away form in this Bundesliga edition suggests they are able to walk away with at least one point seeing as they won three out of their last four away clashes.
Considering Jürgen Klopp is not one for changing the formation, expect Kehl to start as a lone defensive midfielder while Gundogan and Kagawa will have to make up for the lack of Reus and Mkhitaryan. The last six games between two teams provided at least two goals which is why over 2.5 goals has 1.53 odds. BVB create a lot of chances to score, but almost nothing translates into a goal even if both Aumbameyang and Immobile have 2.20 odds to score anytime.
