• Gladbach have won just two of their last 12 Bundesliga games against Wolfsburg (D3 L7). In total, Borussia have lost 56% of their matches against VfL (15 of 27) – that percentage isn't as high against any other Bundesliga club.
  • Wolfsburg have won seven of their last eight home matches against Gladbach – otherwise, one draw (0-0 in February 2012). VfL's last home defeat to Borussia was over 10 years ago (3-1 in November 2003).
  • Gladbach have to win in Wolfsburg if they want to finish fifth. A win coupled with a defeat for Leverkusen would even see Borussia climb to fourth place.
  • Only Dortmund have managed to win against Wolfsburg in the last nine Bundesliga games (2-1 on matchday 29). Otherwise, VfL have recorded five wins and three draws in that timeframe.
  • Wolfsburg have scored at least one goal in each of their last 25 Bundesliga games – currently the longest goalscoring run in the league.
  • With 19 points to their name, Gladbach sit ninth in the away table. However, they have won three of their last five away matches (two defeats).
  • Gladbach's goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen will play his last game for Borussia this weekend against Wolfsburg. He has started on each of the last 107 matchdays since making his Bundesliga debut in a 5-1 win over Köln in April 2011.
  • Dieter Hecking took over at Wolfsburg in December 2012 with the club 15th in the table. Now they have confirmed European football for the first time since winning the league title in 2009.
  • Hecking's professional playing career started at Borussia Mönchengladbach. He only played six Bundesliga games for them though between 1983 and 1985 under then manager Jupp Heynckes.
  • After scoring his 14th goal of the season, Ivica Olic equalled his personal Bundesliga goalscoring record from the 2007/08 campaign (in HSV colours). The Croat has been involved in seven goals in his last six Bundesliga appearances (5 goals, 2 assists).
  • Ricardo Rodriguez is one of just two outfield players, alongside Augsburg's Daniel Baier, yet to have missed a minute of Bundesliga football this season.
