Joint-best defence visit the Rhine

A look at the facts and stats ahead of the clash with Fortuna Düsseldorf.

VfL Wolfsburg open Matchday 4 of the Bundesliga with an away match against Fortuna Düsseldorf this evening (kick-off 20:30 CEST). Here are the key facts on the game:

  • Seven points from their first three Bundesliga matches of the season is VfL’s joint-best haul. That’s as many as they managed in the 2015/16 and 2018/19 campaigns.

  • With that, head coach Oliver Glasner has become the first VfL boss since Holger Fach at the start of the 2005/06 season to register three wins and one draw from his first four competitive matches in charge.

  • Wout Weghorst has been involved in at least one goal in each of his last four Bundesliga appearances (five goals, two assists) – a new personal record for the Dutchman.

  • Fortuna are winless in eight previous competitive meetings with the Wolves (three draws, five defeats).

  • Together with RB Leipzig, the Green-and-Whites boast the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just two goals so far.
