Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 17 April 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena.
The Bavarians were eliminated from the Champions League the last match-day, and they were booted out of the DFB Pokal earlier itself. It goes without saying that they will now turn all their attention to the league.
However, lately they have been dropping points, and the second-placed Leipzig have been catching up. As of now, the Red Bulls need a surplus of just five points to draw level with the toppers, and they are also pitted against the struggling Hoffenheim.
As such, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men are under pressure to deliver a win this weekend, against the Wolves.
Oliver Glasner’s men are placed third in the table, and have been a pretty consistent team all through this campaign. However, they have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years, and have conceded goals in huge numbers in the process.
By the looks of things, expect Bayern Munich to post the three points on the board this Saturday.
Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head (h2h)

- They had also won 12 of the former 13 encounters.
- The combined scorecard for the past 13 clashes is 43-7 in their favor.
- Since 2015, the guests are on a winning streak at this venue.
- The combined scorecard for the last six meetings at this stadium is 3-20, in favor of the visitors.
- In the past 12-year period, the hosts have won just once at this ground.
Wolfsburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction
The Wolves lost 4-3 on the road the last match-day, against Frankfurt. In the meantime, Flick’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Union Berlin.
Going on, the Bavarians are now desperate for the Bundesliga crown now. They have easily been the best team in the German top flight for the past several seasons, and they will count on this experience to record their ninth straight league title in 2020-21.
Note that they have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition – 80, and surprisingly not a single squad has breached the 60-goal mark.
And most importantly, they have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival over the years, and have found the back of the net aggressively against them – be it at home or on the road.
Taking these stats into account, expect a Bayern Munich victory this Saturday.
