Wolfsburg v Hoffenheim

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Wolfsburg have kept one clean sheet in their last eight home Bundesliga matches
Expert verdict
Hoffenheim have made a poor start to the Bundesliga season under new coach Alfred Schreuder and have failed to score in three of their opening four games but could still threaten on their trip to Wolfsburg, who have lost just one of their last 13 home matches but kept only one clean sheet in their last eight games on their own patch. Wolfsburg should justify favouritism as Wout Weghorst and Josip Brekalo have both hit the ground running but Hoffenheim scored in all 17 away games last term.
