VFL Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt square off in German Bundesliga soccer action from the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday morning.
VFL Wolfsburg come into this match clutching onto the 6th position in the Bundesliga standings, sitting on 42 points with a record of 11 wins, 9 draws and 8 losses after a sound 4-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen in their last match. In the game against Bayer Leverkusen, Marin Pongracic headed home the opener to give Wolfsburg the lead right before halftime and it didn’t stop there as Maximilian Arnold and Renato Steffen pushed Wolfsburg’s lead to 3-0 with goals four minutes apart. Pongracic added a 2nd goal in the 75th minute to make it three goals in 11 minutes to push the lead to 4-0. Leverkusen got on the board to break up the clean sheet, but that’s all they had going for them in this one as Wolfsburg picked up a win that left no doubt. Wout Weghorst leads Woflsburg in scoring with 11 goals while Steffen has 6 goals and Arnold has a team-high 7 assists this season.
Eintracht Frankfurt on the other hand, come into this match sitting in 14th place on 29 points after salvaging a 3-3 draw with Freiburg in their last league match. The tie pushed Eintracht Frankfurt’s record to 8 wins, 5 draws and 14 losses on the year. In the game against Freiburg, Frankfurt went down 1-0 just before the half hour mark, but Andre Silva tied the game at one just seven minutes later. The score was tied at the half and for a good chunk of the second half before Freiburg struck twice in a span of two minutes to take a 3-1 lead just past the midway point of the second frame. However, Daichi Kamada and Timothy Chandler would score three minutes apart themselves to tie the game up at three with less than ten minutes of regular time to play, eventually forcing both sides to settle for the draw. Martin Hinteregger leads Frankfurt in scoring with 8 goals while Goncalo Paciencia has 7 goals and the aforementioned Silva has 6 goals. Filip Kostic also has a team-high 9 assists for Eintracht Frankfurt this season.
Frankfurt battling back to salvage the draw against Freiburg was a nice sign for them down the stretch, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m not trying to put my hard-earned money anywhere near Eintracht in their current form. Wolfsburg looked absolutely dominant against a top-tier team like Leverkusen, and while their home form leaves a bit to be desired, especially without fans to cheer them on, I still think Wolfsburg’s the better option here, so I’ll side with the home team in this one.
