WOL vs DOR Dream11 Match Preview: Borussia Dortmund hit the road this week as they play Wolfsburg in a key away game in Bundesliga at Volkswagen Arena on Saturday evening (IST).
Dortmund opened the post-COVID-19 campaign with a 4-0 hammering of eternal rivals Schalke last week. In fact, the game was so easy for them that they hardly shifted into their top gears. But the Yellow Army neither have luxury nor time to rest on their last week’s laurels, for they are in the midst of an intense title race, and know when the challenger is as mighty as reigning champions Bayern Munich, no team, not even Dortmund, can take anything for granted. This is a must-win game for them, as Bayern are expected to win against a struggling Eintracht Frankfurt.
As for Wolfsburg, the Sun seems to be suing on them as they are coming into this game on a seven-game unbeaten run, their best such streak this season. They stated a 1-2 away win at Augsburg last week, and improved their season record to 10 wins, 9 draws and 7 defeats from 26 games. That said, the early season’s woes and a bad run of results, pushed them too far behind in the race for European places, and despite on such a good run, they are still 11 points behind 5th placed Bayer Leverkusen.
