Borussia Dortmund will be looking to keep their Bundesliga dreams alive this weekend when they return to action against Wolfsburg. However, it could be a tricky test against the visitors, who have won each of their previous two matches in the Bundesliga.
Last week, the destination of the Bundesliga title was firmly in the hands of Borussia Dortmund. However, they relinquished control in stuttering fashion on the road to Bochum, as they could only play out a 1-1 draw. That result allowed Bayern Munich to move back to the top of the standings, and the defending champions will now be aware that victories in all remaining four matches would seal the title.
But, Dortmund could continue to put pressure on Bayern this weekend, if they are able to pick up a huge win against Wolfsburg. Dortmund comes into the game having gone four without a loss, but they have won just twice over that period. Last weekend’s draw against Bochum was their second draw in three matches.
Wolfsburg still have their own battle over the final month of the season, as they are bidding to secure a finish in the top six places. They currently sit seventh in the standings, but they could move above Bayer Leverkusen will maximum points this weekend. Wolfsburg will certainly be confident of achieving that target, as they have picked up wins in each of their last two.
That is an excellent return to form for Wolfsburg, as they had previously gone three without a win. Wolfsburg were excellent last weekend, as they landed a 3-0 home win against Mainz. Jonas Wind scored twice in that success, while Sebastiaan Bornauw also found the net.
