Dortmund needs stabilization – Reus is working on his comeback
BVB was able to pull of two wins out of their last two games before the winter break of the Bundesliga started. Therefore, BVB is currently in 3rd place right behind Schalke 04 and Bayern. Right before each player could enjoy their Christmas they had to take care of business and win against Bayern in the DFB-Cup. Unfortunately for them, Munich was the better team especially in the first half. Due to a loss BVB is not in the Cup anymore and can now focus on their goal: Champions-League places. During the winter-break Stoeger worked hard with his team. Luckily, Piszczek and Goetze are back on the roster. In addition to that, Reus made a significant step forward regarding his comeback. In the betting tip we expect a draw. Rode, Philipp, Reus and Schmelzer are on the injury reserved list for the upcoming clash.
Wolfsburg strengthens their offense – Draw in the betting tip
VfL Wolfsburg can look back to a query first half of the season. The team of Martin Schmidt improved a lot lately and is currently in 12th place. Not to forget is that the gap to the relegation places are only four points away. Wolfsburg tried to improve their offense by welcoming Renato Steffen to the team. He is extremely fast and should assist Origi, who is the substitute for Mario Gomez. The former captain left the team for Stuttgart and will certainly be missed on and off the court. The second half of the Bundesliga starts with a tough task against Dortmund. Wolfsburg, on the other hand, improved a lot lately and therefore we expect a draw. Kuba and Camacho are going to be missed due to injuries.
