❌ Arminia - Wolfsburg [Bundesliga]

Match starts: Saturday, 20.11.2021 at 15:30 (GMT+1)

A match between Arminia Bielefeld and Wolfsburg, which will be the first Bundesliga match played on Saturday. We should see an interesting match, where Wolfsburg should attack more and Arminia will probably just try to defend for most of the game. Wolfsburg is definitely the stronger side in this game and they are clear favourites to take the win.

 

Arminia is looking very bad so far this season. They are currently 17th and 2 points away from no-relegation zone. They have the worst attack in the Bundesliga, scoring just 7 goals in 11 matches and never scoring more than 1 goal in a single match. They are coming into this match after an away win against Stuttgart, which was actually their first win this season. Considering Stuttgart is also in terrible form, it is not even that big of an achievement, even though every single point is important to them. They have lost ''just'' 5 matches, which is actually not that much when you take into account that Wolfsburg, which is currently 4th, has lost 4 matches. They took a draw in 5 games, with only Eintracht Frankfurt drawing more (6 draws). Season 2020/2021 was their first season in Bundesliga after they were promoted from Bundesliga 2 and last season they barely escaped relegation thanks to their win in the last round. They are not a strong team and this season they will probably be fighting for survival again.


Missing players: P. Wimmer (injury)

 

Wolfsburg is currently at 4th place on the table and they're looking pretty good so far this season. They're arriving to Bielefeld on the winning momentum as they have won their last 3 matches, 1 in Champions League and 2 in Bundesliga. They are a high quality team, but can be fairly inconsistant and that is their major problem. They are missing Lacroix who is their starting defender, but I believe they have more than enough power to take 3 points from Arminia. Wolfsburg has a bit tougher schedule than previous season, as they are also competing in the Champions League. There, they are currently 3rd, but they have a very even group and nothing is decided yet. They are playing their next Champions League match on Tuesday, but I believe that will not be a negative factor on Saturday.


Missing players: B. Bialek (injury), S. Bornauw (injury), X. Schlager (injury), A. Vranckx (injury), G. Waldschmidt (injury), M. Van de Ven (injury), N. Klinger (illness), M. Lacroix (red card)

 

I think Wolfsburg should take the win here as long as they play in a way they usually do. They will definitely have Sevilla already on their mind, as they are playing against them on Tuesday. But I believe that they are too strong for Arminia and they will try to keep the winning streak alive and with a decent effort they should succeed in doing that.


Best of luck!
