Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim play their final games in the Bundesliga before the World Cup break on Saturday. Both sides are just outside the European places coming into this fixture, which means a victory could give them the best chance of getting into the battle when the season resumes.

Hoffenheim has also started the new season relatively well, as they sit tenth in the Bundesliga standings. They have won five from 14 games this season.
