Dortmund headed into the winter break with back-to-back wins in manager Peter Stöger’s first two Bundesliga games in charge. Despite a very poor run of form under former manager Peter Bosz, they sit in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League again and boast the league’s most prolific attack.
Wolfsburg has suffered one defeat less than Dortmund this season, but 10 draws from their first 17 matches has cost them a higher position in the table. They need to distance themselves from the relegation zone now, rather than thinking about the European places.
Expect Dortmund to try to put pressure on the visitors from the outset.
