Wolfsburg were able to produce a stunning win over Fortuna Dusseldorf but the club’s away form has not been outstanding to expect a positive result in this encounter. Apart from shock wins over the likes of Hertha Berlin and Borussia Mönchengladbach, Wolfsburg have generally been poor on the road.

Correct Score odds
Dortmund have been able to show a lot of spirit in recent weeks and they have been among the goals. Wolfsburg have scored more (15) than Dortmund (13) in the last six games, but it is difficult to separate both teams on this front. After the recent hat-trick, Weghorst will be in a mood to get more goals. Even though Wolfsburg have been unable to score in the last two trips to Signal Iduna Park, our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Dortmund.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Dortmund and Wolfsburg are two prolific teams in terms of scoring goals over the last few weeks. This is even the case when it comes to the overall course of the campaign. Dortmund are in fact the second highest scorers in the division – only behind Bayern Munich. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marco Reus came up with a solid performance in the recent win over Hertha Berlin and he scored the winner late in the match. This has taken him beyond Paco Alcacer as the top scorer at Dortmund with 15 league goals. Reus has now scored in back-to-back games for Dortmund and our first goalscorer prediction would pick the German international.
