History

  • VfL’s 6-0 defeat to Bayern last weekend was their heaviest in the top flight to date. They are now 15th, level on points with HSV. This is their worst ranking at least this far into a season since 2010/11 (15th after matchday 34).
  • Jonker’s men have 33 points after 31 matchdays (same as 2005/06) – their worst tally at this stage since 2010/11 (32; survived on the final day).

Season

  • SGE have been breached 6 times in the final 15 minutes – only FCB fewer (1).
  • The Wolves have lost four of their last five matches (W1 – 3-0 v FCI). They have lost 16 times in 2016/17 – their worst tally after 31 matchdays since 2003/04 (17).
  • Wolfsburg have claimed just five points on the road in 2017 (W1, D2, L4) – the solitary victory came in Leipzig on matchday 24 (1-0).
