It’s the return of the Bundesliga this weekend, and we have several interesting matches in this league of goals.
Wolfsburg will start their season at home, against title contenders Borussia Dortmund.
On the last 4 matches between these two teams, Dortmund won every time, but we need to be realistic here.
We know that Wolfsburg has been struggling in the last few years, dropping in quality, as a result of their main sponsor’s problems as well.
Last year, their results at home were terrible, having 9 losses in total, and this season things aren’t looking too bright as well.
On their pre-season friendlies, they have beaten Fulham and Kassel, and then they lost to Fiorentina (0-2) and Newcastle (1-3).
On their first official match, they have struggled to beat lower tier Norderstedt, with the cup match ending in a 1-0 victory.
Dortmund was able to keep the team’s core, but until the end of this transfer window, a lot can still change.
Because we all know that Aubameyang and Dembelé can still be heading out, especially Dembelé, who is pointed at Barcelona.
For this match, the team has several absences, such as: Durm, Raphael Guerreiro, Dembelé, Reus, Rode, Schurrle and Weigl.
But the good news is that Gotze is back, after several months out with an injury.
He is fully recovered now and he should start this match, alongside with Aubameyang, creating a deadly attacking partnership. We all know how capable this team is offensively.

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund Pick:
I believe that Dortmund has a slight edge in this encounter, but with so many absences.
I’m still unsure about how safe the team will be, considering these two teams are both attack-minded who are always trying to score.
Just like in their last encounters, I fancy a match with goals from both sides, so I’m going with the Over in this one.
