After the 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich, it is fair to expect a reaction from Wolfsburg – especially in front of their own supporters. Fortuna Dusseldorf had been quite good in most of the recent matches but the manner of the loss against Frankfurt will be quite disappointing. There are still quite a lot of matches in the remainder of the campaign and Fortuna Dusseldorf can still be sucked back into the relegation battle. Hence, there will be a strong motivation for three points from both teams. Wolfsburg’s desperation to wash away last weekend’s thrashing will ultimately propel them to a win, according to our preview.

Correct Score odds
Wolfsburg have been able to manage less than 1.5 goals per home match this season. Such a record will be quite pleasing for Fortuna Dusseldorf, who have been reasonably solid at the back. The 2-0 loss against Bayer Leverkusen is the only defeat for Fortuna Dusseldorf in the last five away games and it is down to a strong defensive run. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 victory for Wolfsburg.

Bruno Labbadia’s team have been involved in a string of high-scoring matches with the home draw against Werder Bremen being the only game with less than 2.5 goals in the last five matches. Fortuna Dusseldorf conceded three second-half goals against Frankfurt and it is a sign of the team’s ability to collapse. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Wout Weghorst is the top scorer for Wolfsburg with nine goals and three assists this season.
