• Dortmund have only collected one point from their last three Bundesliga games against Wolfsburg – the only other Bundesliga sides BVB have currently gone as many games without winning against are FC Bayern and Gladbach.
  • Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg will meet again 10 days after Saturday’s Bundesliga encounter – BVB host the Wolves in the semi-finals of the German Cup.
  • BVB have collected more points away (29) than they have at home (26). Dortmund have won just two of their last eight Bundesliga matches in their own stadium (D2, L4).
  • Wolfsburg have won each of their last six matches on a Saturday evening – that is a record since the 18:30 CET Saturday kick-off time was introduced in 2009/10.
  • The Wolves have scored at least one goal in each of their last 20 Bundesliga games – the last time they failed to score was on October 5th 2013 (2-0 loss to Braunschweig). Only Bayern are currently on a longer goalscoring run (65 games).
  • Wolfsburg have won five times after going behind – a league best together with Bayern. Their tally of 18 points collected from losing positions is an outright league-high.
  • With 47 points after 28 games, VfL are having the second-best Bundesliga season in their history. The only time they have had more points at this stage of the campaign was when they won the title in 2008/90 (57 points after 28 games).
  • Wolfsburg have the best tackle success rate in the league (53.1%). Dortmund are only in joint seventh with 50.0% of their challenges won.
  • Christian Träsch could make his 150th Bundesliga appearance.
  • Marco Reus has been involved in 99 goals in his 153 Bundesliga appearances (62 goals, 37 assists). He scored his third hat-trick in the top flight in BVB’s 3-2 win in Stuttgart last weekend.
