• Borussia have lost 19 of their 33 Bundesliga matches against Wolfsburg (58% - W10, D4). They’ve not lost over half of their top-fight games against any other side.
  • Gladbach’s last win in Wolfsburg came over 13 years ago (3-1 on 22nd November 2003). The Foals have earned just one point from 11 trips to the Volkswagen Arena since then.
  • Just seven points separate the sides, but Wolfsburg are fighting to avoid relegation (3 points ahead of 16th place), while Gladbach are aiming for a European place (3 points off 6th).
  • None of the eight sides in the last 13 seasons with 36 points from 32 games (like Wolfsburg currently) have been relegated. The Wolves beat both of their upcoming opponents earlier this season.
  • Wolfsburg suffered their heaviest Bundesliga home defeat in their most recent game in the city (6-0 vs FCB). They’ve alternated between wins and losses in their last eight home games.
  • The Foals have seven points from their last four games on the road, losing just once (5-3 to TSG, who are unbeaten at home). Under Dieter Hecking, Borussia have picked up 0.5 more points per game on average on their travels (1.9) than they do at home (1.4).
  • While Wolfsburg have the league’s worst chance conversion rate (10%) and the second-worst clear-cut chance conversion rate (38%), two of their three shots on target in their 2-0 win over Frankfurt resulted in goals.
  • Only Bayern and Dortmund win a higher percentage of duels than Gladbach and Wolfsburg. Two of the top 10 players for challenges won this season play for the Foals (Christensen and Vestergaard).
  • Mario Gomez has been directly involved in 10 of Wolfsburg’s 12 goals under Andries Jonker (nine goals, one assist). Gomez’s assist for Daniel Didavi in the win over Frankfurt was his first for the Wolves.
  • Dieter Hecking will return to Wolfsburg for the first time since he was sacked by the Wolves on 17th October 2016. Hecking led them to second place in 2015 and won the DFB Cup the same year, beating Dortmund 3-1 in the final.
