Wolfsburg vs Werder Bremen 28/11/20
Volkswagen Arena is the venue as Wolfsburg look to bring a four-game winless home Bundesliga run against Werder Bremen to a halt (D2, L2).
A comfortable 2-0 away win at Schalke 04 last time out means Wolfsburg enter this round as one of just two Bundesliga teams yet to taste defeat this season (W3, D5). Oliver Glasner has based his side’s success on a rock-solid backline that has conceded a league-low five goals in the opening eight fixtures. But, ‘Die Wolfe’ have failed to impress at the other end of the pitch, netting an average of 1.12 goals per Bundesliga match so far. Notably, though, 88.89% (eight) of their nine league goals scored so far arrived in the first half of play. Indeed, they have yet to find the net after half-time at home, registering each of their four goals scored in such contests in the first half.
Meanwhile, Werder must be kicking themselves to know they have opened the scoring in three of their last four league outings only to drop that lead later on. Indeed, the visitors have gone from back-to-back Bundesliga victories to five consecutive draws, all of which yielded the identical 1-1 scoreline. Interestingly, ‘Die Werderaner’ have conceded precisely once per game in each of their four top-flight trips this season, with three of their four goals shipped arriving in the second half of play. It will be a daunting prospect for Werder to keep a clean sheet here, as they’ve failed to shut out Wolfsburg in each of their last nine Bundesliga H2Hs held at this venue, conceding an average of 2.11 goals across those trips.
