Fine record in Frankfurt

Key facts and figures on VfL’s trip to top-four rivals Eintracht Frankfurt.

With seven rounds of fixtures left to play, VfL Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt are on course to qualify for the Champions League. Both clubs have suffered just three league defeats this season and have yet to lose on home soil – although Frankfurt has been a very happy hunting ground for the Green-and-Whites in recent years. VfL have won on each of their last four visits to Eintracht (2-0, 2-1, 1-0, 2-0) and will be confident of claiming another three points on Saturday 10 April (kick-off 15:30 CEST).

More facts and figures

  • Strong on the road: The Wolves have won five of their last six away games – their only defeat coming at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim (1-2) on Matchday 24. Only Bayern Munich (31) and Leipzig (25) have registered more points on their travels than VfL (23) this season.

  • Advantage Wolfsburg: Eintracht have won only seven of the 37 Bundesliga meetings between these two clubs, with the Wolves emerging victorious on 19 occasions (11 draws). VfL also won the reverse fixture 2-1, Wout Weghorst’s brace (76’, 88’) turning the game around after Bas Dost’s opener (63’).

  • Happy hunting ground: The Wolves have won on each of their last four visits to Frankfurt – currently their longest winning run away from home against Bundesliga opposition.

  • Brekalo equals personal best: Josip Brekalo scored the only goal in a 1-0 win against 1. FC Köln last time out. It was the 22-year-old Croatia international’s fourth league goal of the campaign, equalling his best goals tally from the 2017/18 season (three for Wolfsburg, one for VfB Stuttgart).

  • VfL much stronger in defence: Eintracht may have scored nine more league goals (55) than the Green-and-Whites (46) this season, but the Wolves are much more solid than the Eagles at the back. Oliver Glasner’s side have conceded just 22 goals compared to Frankfurt’s 37, and have already kept 13 clean sheets.

  • Fast out of the blocks: Only Bayern have scored more first-half goals (38) than Eintracht and Wolfsburg (both 26) in the Bundesliga this season.
