Wolfsburg take on the visitors Koln in the round 5 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, September 3rd at Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).
Wolfsburg are not shining yet in the new season. The Wolves in the 2020/2021 draw, under Oliver Glassner, were able to climb to 4th place. By the way, in the Champions League, they showed themselves well in the end. But at the same time, they failed in the domestic arena, gaining only 42 points, on a par with newcomer Bochum, and finishing as much as 12th position. Niko Kovac was called to correct the situation. But so far, the Croatian can only boast of a victory over Carl Zeiss in the national cup. Within the framework of the Bundesliga, it turns out only to cling to a draw at home, with Werder Bremen (2-2) and Schalke (0-0). Away, there were “dry”, 0-2 defeats, however, from the giants, Bayern and RB Leipzig.

Koln will play on a difficult schedule this season. The Goats did a great job last season. Steffen Baumgart, accepting a team that was saved from relegation to the 2nd division only in play-offs, finished with her in the spring in 7th position. This gave them a pass to the Conference League, where in the qualification the Germans passed, albeit not without problems, Fehervar (first it was 1-2 in Hungary, and only then 3-0 at home), and proved the right to play in the group round of the Conference League. In the German championship, even despite the departure of the striker, Modest, to Borussia Dortmund, it turns out not to lose. True, they only won against the newcomer, Schalke (3-1 in the 1st round). Then there were already three draws - with RB Leipzig (2-2), Frankfurt Eintracht (1-1) and Stuttgart (0-0). But, of course, we would need to score points more actively in order to remain in the European Cup zone this season as well.
Wolfsburg and Koln have fairly equal statistics in head-to-head confrontations. This also manifested itself in the last Bundesliga season, when the teams exchanged away victories. Wolfsburg as a team that plays at home is considered as the favorite of the confrontation. But Koln started the season strongly, so it's worth betting that the Goats won't lose.
Prediction for the match: Koln to win with +0.5 handicap (X2).
