Dusseldorf vs Wolfsburg Prediction & Match Preview
Friday, September 13 – 14:30 EST – Merkur Spiel-Arena
After winning their opening game against Werder Bremen, Dusseldorf are coming into this one on the back of two defeats. Dusseldorf’s away victory to Werder Bremen was impressive. Unfortunately, they could not keep up the pace against better competition such as Bayer Leverkusen and Frankfurt. They will be hoping to utilize the home crowd to cause an upset against a strong Wolfsburg team. Two important players have stood out for Dusseldorf this season. American keeper Zack Steffen has been fantastic. Despite their losses, he has done his best to keep the ball out of the net. Steffen is on loan from Manchester City and looking to prove that he is capable of playing at an European club. Offensively, Steffen’s fellow American Alfredo Morales has been in fine form. He has looked their biggest threat in all three matches.
Wolfsburg are turning heads with their performances this season. They are 2-1-0 and sit third in the Bundesliga. It is a good sign that they have yet to drop a fixture. They will feel confident going into this one and will look to secure three points against below average competition. Striker Wout Weghorst has been leading the line with success in their first three fixtures. He has been involved in at least one goal across each of their games so far. Wolfsburg play in a 3-4-3 formation. The centre back partnerships between Knoche, Guilavogui and American John Anthony Brooks has been stellar. They have developed an understanding with each other early into the season. Wolfsburg will look to continue their fantastic defensive record as they only allowed two goals in three games.
