While the majority of the major sports leagues around the word are still either cancelling or looking at plans to make a return, there are a couple that have decided that the time is right to get back to business. It is the European soccer leagues who are leading the way, with the German Bundesliga the first to open back up. Serie A in Italy will be next, while the English Premier League has players back in training ahead of a June return to action. There are, though, still some serious restrictions in place, the most important of which is that all games will be played in empty stadiums until further notice. When that is remains very much to be seen, but at least we are getting some meaningful games to watch and wager on for the time being. Let’s take a closer look at the two teams so you can place your bets against their Bundesliga odds.
Wolfsburg Vs Borussia Dortmund Game Info
The Bundesliga will have its second full weekend of action starting this coming Saturday, and we will do out best to cover all the action. We are going to get the ball rolling with a Saturday game that sees title hopefuls Borussia Dortmund hit the road to face Wolfsburg. This is a match-up that has been dominated by Dortmund, so expect them to be a rather heavy favorite for this one.When?: Saturday, May 23 at 9:30 AM EST Where?: Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg Wolfsburg Vs Dortmund Live: ESPN
Why bet on Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg are well and truly out of the title race, but that does not mean that they have nothing to play for in this late stage of the season. Currently sitting in 7th place in the Bundesliga standings, Wolfsburg are clinging to the final Europa League qualification spot, although it is going to be interested to see how UEFA deals with those places, as a few leagues have already cancelled their seasons. They certainly helped their cause in their first game back last weekend, going on the road and getting a 2-1 win over Augsburg. Wolfsburg are now on 39 points, just 2 points clear of the chasing pack, so they may not hold onto that spot for long. In home games this season, Wolfsburg are 4-6-3, scoring 16 and surrendering 13.
Why bet on Borussia Dortmund
While this is a game that you would certainly expect Borussia Dortmund to win, we have to remember that they are under some pressure to keep the pace with Bayern Munich, who lead the Bundesliga. As it stands now, Dortmund are in second, 4 points back of the leaders, so there really is no room for any kind of slip-up here. The chances of that happening do seem rather unlikely, though, as this is a fixture that Dortmund have totally dominated. You have to go back to the 2016/17 season to find the last time that Dortmund even surrendered a goal to Wolfsburg. In the last 17 league meetings between these two, Dortmund has outscored Wolfsburg 17-1. On the road this season, Dortmund are 6-3-4, scoring 27 goals and surrendering 23.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
It would be a very brave person who would bet against Dortmund getting the win this weekend. They won the earlier meeting this season by a score of 3-0, and I am looking for a similar type of result on the road.
Prediction: Wolfsburg 0 Borussia Dortmund 2
