Foot Predictions shows the Bundesliga clash on Sunday between Wolfsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Wolfsburg host Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Sunday, in a potentially crucial clash in terms of the race to finish in the Champions League qualifying positions.
The Wolves have a six point advantage over their next opponents on the table, so a fifth consecutive league win for Oliver Glasneron the outside can make that leadership unassailable.
Having won each of the last four league matches without conceding a goal, Wolfsburg looks like one of the top contenders to finish in the top four this season and seal qualification for the Champions League for the first time since reaching the quarterfinals. final in 2015- 16 seasons.
Glasner’s team started quietly in the 2-0 win in Augsburg last weekend, but wolves always have a deadly bite with Wout Weghorst in attack. The Netherlands striker scored his fifth goal in six games after a devastating counterattack, with Renato Steffen finding Yannick Gerhardt between the lines, whose clever ball across the ball found Weghorst to gently throw the ball Rafal Gikiewicz.
Gerhardt was once again the provider when shooting a peach ball in the large Augsburg area to Ridle Baku to score close, but the winger was judged to have been barely stopped. However, Baku could not be denied, taking advantage of a lost ball on the second post to double his team’s lead and end another comfortable victory.
Wolfsburg’s defensive unit should be tested much more against Gladbach on Sunday than in recent weeks, but given the shape of the two teams, Glasner is confident of extending his team’s winning streak.
In fact, after adding 13 points from five games after the winter break – including impressive wins against Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich – Gladbach scored just one point in two games against Union Berlin and FC Köln.
Last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at home to Cologne was a serious blow in terms of Marco RoseThe team’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League for the second consecutive season, but only had to blame themselves after a lukewarm performance.
Gladbach’s lack of defensive organization and pressure on the ball were clear from the first minute, with passes and Cologne interaction helping Elvis Rexhbecaj lots of space on the edge of the big area of the house, with the attacking midfielder punishing them relentlessly. Florian NeuhausKöln’s deflected effort leveled the proceedings 13 minutes later, but Köln was surprisingly the strongest side from start to finish, with Rexhbecaj taking advantage of the sloppy passage from the back before Yann Sommer excellently denied Ondrej Duda to make the result even worse.
Rose would certainly be relieved to witness Elvis leaving the building full time, but things shouldn’t be any easier on a Wolfsburg team that hasn’t conceded a goal in almost 500 minutes of football in all competitions. However, a positive result will put a totally different glimpse into the season leading up to the exciting Champions League two-game draw against Manchester City.
