Wolfsburg vs Hamburger SV Prediction, Preview, Lineups & Betting Tips
Both sides have failed to score in the last six matches of Wolfsburg. Now The Wolves from Wolfsburg (14th) are set for a decisive meeting against another relegation pretender in the face of Hamburger SV (17th). Distance between both sides is 5 points (Wolfsburg – 30, HSV – 25) so a draw, three rounds before end of the season, would be an acceptable result for the hosts, although they still need the three points if they want to finish above the 16th position (relegation playoff).
HSV won three of its last five Bundesliga fixtures and “The Red Shorts” must play for a mandatory success in Wolfsburg, if they want to keep their Bundesliga hope alive. Nevertheless, HSV have failed to win their last 14 away matches in the Bundesliga – 3 draws, 11 defeats. Moreover, Wolfsburg is unbeaten in 14 of its last 15 matches against Hamburg SV in all competitions. This forms an extremely tough challenge for the away side.
Wolfsburg have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 encounters, while Hamburger SV have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 away games. Anyway, it’s time to end that bad streak when both sides are facing each other. They have enough serious arguments to play for the three points on Saturday afternoon. Our betting prediction recommends: “Both teams to score – Yes“. A decent value on this betting market for a Bundesliga match.
