VfL Wolfsburg

German Bundesliga

12 Feb 2017 | 08:00 PM
Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim





TSG have only won one Bundesliga game in Wolfsburg (2-1 in February 2012, otherwise D2, L5). Their last three visits to the Volkswagen Arena have ended in defeat.
There have been 62 goals in the 17 Bundesliga matches between these sides to date (3.65 per game) – more than in any other top-flight match up featuring either of these two clubs. However, the reverse fixture saw a clash end goalless for the first time ever.
Wolfsburg have claimed 19 points from their 19 games this term – their worst-ever tally at this stage of a season. TSG, meanwhile, currently have 34 – their second-most at this stage of a Bundesliga campaign (after 39 in 2008/09).
TSG Hoffenheim, Real Madrid and FC Bayern are the only three sides in Europe’s top five leagues to have lost just one league game this season.
The Wolves have claimed eight points from their 10 home games in 2016/17 – a league-low and club record. They have scored just seven times in front of their own fans this term – also a league-low and club record.
Hoffenheim have accumulated 14 points from their nine away games in 2016/17 – their best-ever tally at this stage of a season. However, their only defeat of the campaign came in their most recent match on the road (2-1 in Leipzig).
Wolfsburg are without a win in five games on a Sunday (D3, L2) – their last win on the final day of the weekend dates back to the first weekend of last season (2-1 vs. Frankfurt).
A goal for the Wolves this weekend would be their 600th at home in the top flight.
VfL’s Mario Gomez has scored seven goals in nine Bundesliga matches against TSG. The German has never lost a top-flight game against them (W4, D5); his joint-longest unbeaten streak against a Bundesliga side (along with Bochum).
Julian Nagelsmann celebrated his 12-month anniversary in charge of TSG the day before the match. They’ve averaged 1.73 points per Bundesliga game under the youngster, the most of any boss in the competition in their history.
