• Wolfsburg have lost one of their last eight games vs. Eintracht (3-2 in Frankfurt in January 2016, otherwise W4, D3).
  • VfL’s 6-0 defeat to Bayern last weekend was their heaviest in the top flight to date. They are now 15th, level on points with HSV. This is their worst ranking at least this far into a season since 2010/11 (15th after matchday 34).
  • The Wolves have lost four of their last five matches (W1 – 3-0 vs. FCI). They have lost 16 times in 2016/17 – their worst tally after 31 matchdays since 2003/04 (17).
  • Frankfurt have claimed 12 points in their 14 matches in the second half of the campaign – fewer than any other Bundesliga side. They were shut out eight times in that period, bagging a league-low 10 goals during that timeframe.
  • Jonker’s men have 33 points after 31 matchdays (same as 2005/06) – their worst tally at this stage since 2010/11 (32; survived on the final day).
  • Wolfsburg have claimed just five points on the road in 2017 (W1, D2, L4) – the solitary victory came in Leipzig on matchday 24 (1-0).
  • The Eagles have been kept at bay 14 times this term – only Darmstadt can top this (16). They have never been shut out more often at this stage of a Bundesliga season.
  • Both sides have converted just 37% of their clear-cut chances this term – a joint league low.
  • The Wolves have won 52% of their challenges since Andries Jonker took over – only Bayern (54%) can top this. SGE won just 45% in the same period – a league low.
  • Luiz Gustavo will miss the game having been sent off vs. Bayern. He has received eight Bundesliga red cards (same as Jens Nowotny) – more than any other player.
