  • HSV have recorded three wins and two draws from their five home games under Mirko Slomka. They haven't conceded more than one goal in any of those matches.
  • The Wolves have scored at least once in each of their last 22 Bundesliga games; currently the longest goalscoring run in the league and also a club record. The last time VfL failed to bag a goal was in their 2-0 loss to Braunschweig at the start of October.
  • HSV have failed to win in the late Saturday kick-off in their last 14 attempts (D6 L8). The last time they won in a Saturday evening game was a 1-0 victory at S04 in January 2011 (Ruud van Nistelrooy scored).
  • Never before in their over 50-year Bundesliga history have HSV had only 27 points after 30 games. They have already lost more games this season (17) than in the whole of any other previous campaign.
  • Wolfsburg have conceded the most goals in the second half of the season (26). Only Hoffenheim (63) have conceded more goals across the entire campaign than Hamburg (62).

  • Ivica Olic has scored in four of his last five games and is Wolfsburg's top scorer with 12 goals. He scored 29 goals in 78 Bundesliga games for HSV between January 2007 and summer 2009.
  • With six assists, Kevin De Bruyne is the best assist provider in the second half of the season. However, he has yet to score for Wolfsburg. He netted 10 times in 33 games for Bremen in 2012/13.
  • Mirko Slomka has won his last six Bundesliga games against Dieter Hecking. If he is victorious again this time, it would be his 100th win as a Bundesliga manager.
