Visitors Dusseldorf have completely exceeded expectations this season. Dusseldorf have all but guaranteed survival likely their target for the season now standing twelve points above the relegation zone. As such, recent defeats to teams like Leipzig, Leverkusen and Frankfurt can be forgiven. Not only have Friedhelm Funkels side beaten title chasers Borussia Dortmund and drawn away to Bayern Munich, but theyve been doing exactly what they need to do as a promoted side: getting results in favourable fixtureslike theyre supposed to.

Wolfsburg vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Stats

Dusseldorf themselves have also been firing well enough, with nine goals in their last five in the Bundesliga. Bar their blank away to Bayern last weekend one that can be taken with a pinch of salt Wolfsburg are in reasonable scoring form, having found the back of the net ten times in their four league outings prior. Whether they can cause another upset here is another question. All but one of Wolfsburgs home defeats this season have been against sides within the top six, while all of Dusseldorfs away wins have been against sides below them in the table.Going off that, were thinking that a bet on over 2.5 goals is the way to go here.

So where does that leave us ahead of this game? However, defence is not their strong point, and even with Wolfsburg relatively out of shape in terms of form, youd have to fancy them for at least one goal against the second worst defense in the German top flight only Nurnberg (19) have conceded more than Dusseldorf (18). Well, after looking over everything, there looks to be some value in backing goals at both ends on Saturday for the following reasons: Fortuna Dusseldorfs poor form and failure to score goals has largely been in matches on the road in fact, Dusseldorf have failed to score in just one home match this season, and that came against strong opposition in Schalke 04. And with four goals scored in four home matches so far, the West Germans are trucking along with a one goal per game average at the ESPIRIT arena.

The pacey left-back won three Bundesliga trophies with the Allianz Arena outfit and in 2013 he lifted the Champions League trophy with FCB. Contento, who was born in Munich on May 1, 1990, is well known for playing for Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich defeated fellow Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the title game and that is considered the biggest success of Diego Contentos career. Diego Contento is a German footballer of Italian descent.

Wolfsburg will be looking to make amends for a heavy 6-0 loss to Bayern Munchen when they welcome Fortuna Dusseldorf at their Volkswagen Arena on Matchday 26. You should bear in mind that Wolfsburg are eyeing their fifth home win of the season. In the first half of the season the Wolves defeated the newcomers 3-0 in Dusseldorf, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on Bruno Labbadias men. Wolfsburg are considered favourites to win Saturdays football game and seeing that Fortuna Dusseldorf often struggle on the travels, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. A man to watch in the home side will be Dutch attacker Wout Weghorst, who has netted nine goals in the Bundesliga so far this term. The Wolves are having a successful season and they are still in the race for a place in European competitions.

Head To Head

Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009.

Fortuna strung together some positive results in the earlier matches draws away to RB Leipzig (1-1) and Stuttgart (0-0) stand out but a huge slump in form has drawn some serious question marks around their ability as a top flight side. Four consecutive league defeats has given Fortuna Dusseldorf a harsh taste of reality after a comfortable enough start to the season. Last weekends 7-1 hammering away to Eintracht Frankfurt was their heaviest Bundesliga defeat since March 1986 and a less than impressive 2-0 defeat against Nurnberg in the away game prior to that, the other newly promoted side, highlights our concerns. Coach Friedhelm Funkel has some thinking to do ahead of this match with his side managing just two goals over their last five league outings too.

Our prediction: 2-1 Wolfsburg. Going off respective home and away forms, Wolfsburgs overall record at the Volkswagen Arena just about trumps Dusseldorfs recent record the quality of opposition in Dusseldorfs recent wins is the deciding factor and so we like Wolfsburg to clinch what should bean entertaining game. Wolfsburgs league matches in 2019 have also seen a massive 27 goals scored, anaverage of 3.4 goals per game the sixth highest number in the league.And with over 2.5 goals scored in 68% of both Wolfsburgs and Dusseldorfs matches this season too, there has to be some value in that market.

Highlighted Player (Admir Mehmedi):

Last weekends 3-1 defeat at home to Bayern Munich means that theyrewinless in six Bundesliga games (D3 L3) the worst ongoing run in the league ahead of this match, so coach Bruno Labbadia may experiment away from his tried and tested 4-3-3 formation thats the least he could do in one of the more favourable fixtures of the season. The Dutchman hasbeen directly involved in three of their last four Bundesliga goals (two goals and one assist) and has been preferred to impact sub Daniel Ginczek as a lone striker. Wolfsburgs surprisingly good start to the 18/19 campaign has also taken a turn for the worse. He is, however, likely to stick with new signing Wout Weghorst(27 goals in all competitions for AZ last term) as the main man up front.

Bruno Labaddias men should like their chances of getting back on track against Fortuna Dusseldorf this weekend theyve never lost against them competitively and they won 3-0 in the reverse leg but their opponents havent been without their surprises. Wolfsburgs progress towards European qualification took an expected hiatus in last weekends trip to Bayern Munich. A 6-0 thrashing away to the reigning champs brought their five-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga to an end (W3 D2) and has left them three points behind sixth-placedBayer Leverkusen.

Wolfsburgs recent form might look poor on paper, but draws against an 2nd placed Borussia Monchengladbach and a stubborn Mainz 05 and defeats against 3rd place Werder Bremen and reigning champions Bayern Munich are not too out of the ordinary. Following that up with the fact that Wolves do have the best offensive record in the bottom half of the table (11 goals scored, an average of round 1.4 goals per game scored)then you begin to fancy them for a result here, especially withDusseldorf losing in three of their four home matches so far. Our prediction: 2-1 Wolfsburg. However, with Wolfsburg keeping just one clean sheet this season, against the Bundesligas weakest offense (Mainz) at that, we dont see it being a clean win in fact, both teams have scored in 8 of Dusseldorfs last 10 competitive league home matches (80%).
