Borussia Dortmund – Only way is up with Haaland back in the fold?

Unavailable for selection throughout the packed December schedule, during which time The Black and Yellows (W7 D1 L5) failed to win four of their seven competitive matches, it will be of huge relief therefore for the club to have its most reliable and deadly marksman back training ahead of the Bundesliga resumption. The question now, then, is whether Erling Haaland is unleashed from the start on Sunday?

There can be no denying the impact Haaland’s prolonged absence has had on this team, particularly in the Bundesliga. Since featuring in the shock home loss to FC Koln at the end of November, Dortmund have collected four of a possible twelve points (W1 D1 L2), averaged 1.25 goals – considerably down on their season average (2) – and were humiliated in their only home encounter without the Norwegian in the side.

Before the winter break meanwhile, BVB slumped to their fifth league defeat of the campaign when losing 2-1 at Union Berlin, dropping to fifth, some eight points back from the summit. That a fourth defeat in seven Bundesliga matches having failed to keep a single clean sheet. For context, Dortmund opened their league accounts for 2020/21 with five wins to nil from their opening six assignments.


Draw & Both Teams to Score



Wolfsburg – Strong season thus far but unreliable on their travels?

Despite sustaining a first Bundesliga defeat of the season in their penultimate fixture of 2020, an undeterred Wolfsburg (W6 D6 L1) delivered the perfect riposte to their narrow – and some might argue harsh – loss away to champions Bayern Munich by producing a clinical performance in their final encounter. A 1-0 home win over Stuttgart ensuring The Wolves begin the New Year above Dortmund in fourth.

The last time the club had negotiated their first thirteen games of a Bundesliga season having lost only once was, well, never! Such has been the impressive nature of their performance thus far that no previous side in the club’s history, not even the great side of 2008/09 which went on to lift the title, has bettered their start to 2020/21. Their goal now is maintaining these standards through the Ruckrunde.

The Ruckrunde in Germany meaning second half of the season, which is when Wolfsburg struggled to get going this time last season, returning to action with successive defeats. Coach Oliver Glasner must guard against similar complacency, though it won’t be easy. His team have laboured on their travels this season, winning only once (W1 D4 L1), while the club’s record in Dortmund is horrendous: D2 L5 since last win in 2012.

Borussia Dortmund Vs Wolfsburg Betting Advice

The winter break favoured one of these teams more than the other. That being Borussia Dortmund, whose two wins across the last seven Bundesliga rounds compares unfavourably to the five accrued by Wolfsburg. The former have therefore been able to regroup and, more importantly, get star man Erling Haaland back to something close to full fitness with the Norwegian set to feature for the first time since November.


Borussia Dortmund Vs Wolfsburg – Key Facts:

  • Dortmund have lost their last three Bundesliga home games – the most recent a crushing 5-1 scoreline against Stuttgart – last losing four on the spin in 2013.
  • Wolfsburg have netted in ten consecutive Bundesliga matches, while all but one of their six away matches this season featured both both teams finding the back of the net.
  • Across the last ten Bundesliga meetings, Dortmund have failed to beat Wolfsburg only once – a 0-0 draw here at Signal Iduna Park in January 2018.


Despite boasting vastly superior form, the record Wolfsburg possess here at Signal Iduna Park is honorifically bad. Since a 4-2 triumph in 2012, the visitors have tasted defeat in five of seven subsequent league meetings between the sides. In fact, Wolfsburg wouldn’t even manage a goal in each of the last four. Having scored in ten consecutive Bundesliga games though, and all six away this season, I expect that to change if nothing else.
