Bundesliga Preview: Wolfsburg vs DortmundBy: Clarissa | April 6th, 2012
Now, the draw against Stuttgart last weekend means that Bayern are closing in on our lead. It’s just three points seperating us and the Bavarians, plus they have a better goal- difference.
That means that now we cannot allow ourselfs any slip- ups anymore, especially with the difficult games against Schalke and Munich still to come. However, first we have to go up against a resurgent Wolfsburg. The Wolves have been playing a strong second half of the season, and are now in contention for an Europaleague place. Particularly at home Wolfsburg have shown some very strong performances recently. Meanwhile our guys need to get the 4 goals conceded against Stuttgart out of their system.
Coming to the players, Dortmund will be able to use pretty much the full contingent. The interesting question is if Gündogan, who has finally been playing very well in the last few weeks, will start, or whether we’ll see Lars Bender.
Wolfsburg might be missing Patrick Helmes, who is currently on a goal- scoring streak. This could be an advantage for us, if he really has to miss the game. Coming to Götze, he is back in training, and will perhaps get a few minutes with the second team. Should be soon though, when he can return to the senior side.
Possible line- ups:
