All you need to know ahead of the Wolves’ trip to Berlin to face Hertha BSC.
Matchday 6 sees the Wolves travel to Hertha BSC, who they have faced more times in competitive matches than any other current Bundesliga team. The club from the capital currently have their noses in front in the head-to-head stakes, with 21 wins to VfL’s 18, plus 14 draws. Here are some more facts and figures ahead of the match at the Olympiastadion on Sunday 1 November (kick-off 18:00 CET):
This is the first time that VfL will cross swords with former coach Bruno Labbadia since he left the club. The last time the Green-and-Whites faced Hertha, Jürgen Klinsmann was in charge.
VfL have emerged victorious on their last two visits to the Olympiastadion (winning 1-0 and 3-0).
In the last nine meetings between the two teams, the home side have only won once.
The last time the Wolves won at Hertha was back on the final day of the 1994/95 Bundesliga 2 season, when Siggi Reich (2) and Jacek Frackiewicz gave them a 3-1 win.
Peter Pekarik, now on the books at Berlin, is one of the last remaining members of the VfL title-winning squad still playing. The Slovak, who turned 34 on Friday, made 55 Bundesliga appearances for Wolfsburg between 2009 and 2012
