Hamburger SV take on the visitors Wolfsburg at "Volksparkstadion" in the last 34 matchday of the Bundesliga in the season 2016/2017. The game will be played in Hamburg on Saturday, May 20th.
Match for life will take place in Hamburg as the hosting side has failed at the end of the season and its no-win streak has reached five clashes already with only two points taken in it. The team comes up to the closing battle with 35 points earned and 31-60 goal difference resulting in the side’s 16th place in the standings meaning that it will have to participate in the Play Offs with the team taking the third place in the 2. Bundesliga for promotion to the elite division. “Der Dino” picked up most of its points at its home field: 25 points in 16 home encounters. However, the side failed in two recent back-to-back games against its direct rivals: vs. Darmstadt 1:2 and vs. Mainz 0:0.

Wolfsburg occupy the 15th position in the Bundesliga standings with 37 points earned and it will be enough for them not to lose to Hamburger SV to stay in the Bundesliga next season. “Die Wolfe” show suitable results on the road recording 19 points taken in 16 encounters which is more than at their own turf. Wolfsburg recorded two triumphs, one draw and two losses in five recent clashes at away turfs.
Hamburger SV have been failing to defeat Wolfsburg for six years already, namely, since the 11th of February 2011. Since then the teams have met 12 times resulting in six draws and six victories of “Die Wolfe”. Last time Hamburger SV broke Wolfsburg was on the 1st of April 2007 which is almost ten years ago. Taking into consideration the teams competitive form at the moment as well as their head-to-head statistics, I believe that the visiting side will not relegate after this season.
Prediction for the match: Wolfsburg to win with +0.5 Asian handicap (X2).
