Two sides with relegation worries will face off in this round 32 encounter. While Wolfsburg are fighting in the pack on 30 points just above the drop zone, Hamburg really are drinking at the ‘last chance saloon’, five points further back in 17th.
Wolfsburg have been in and around the relegation zone all season, hampered to a major degree by their habit of drawing. Their 15 Bundesliga draws this season is the second highest in Europe’s top five leagues after Montpellier’s 16.
Formwise, Wolfsburg come into this game with just one win in five (W1, D2, L2) and without a win in their last six home league games (D2, L4).
After winning their first two games of the season, Hamburg have struggled pretty much ever since - continuing the theme from the previous season. That said, they have shown some spirit recently, winning two of their last three. However, they have not won away in 14 - the worst away run of any BL side this season. Their solitary away win this season is the joint worst in the league.
With time running out this season, every game from now on is a ‘must win’ for Hamburg. A loss here could see them relegated come Sunday.
Players to watch: Daniel Didavi has scored eight goals for Wolfsburg this season, including two in his last three.
Lewis Holtby and Filip Kostic have scored a combined total of nine goals between them, accounting for over a third of the league low of 24 Hamburg have scored to date.
Stat attack: This is the 43rd meeting between these two sides. Wolfsburg have won 17 games to their opponents’ ten.
Additionally, the hosts have won five of their last eight games against Wolfsburg, who in turn have not recorded any victory here in their last seven (D3, L4).
