Nearing club records away from home: VfL have won each of their last three away outings without conceding a single goal. Four consecutive away wins and/or four consecutive clean sheets on the road would both be club records in the Bundesliga.
Perfect record on Fridays: The Wolves have won both of their previous Friday fixtures this season – 5-3 at home to Werder Bremen and 2-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt – with Wout Weghorst scoring four goals across the two games. Bielefeld are playing on a Friday for the first time this term.
Winning run: The Green-and-Whites have won their last five meetings with Arminia in all competitions (four in the Bundesliga and one in the DFB Cup).
Settled side: VfL coach Oliver Glasner has named the same starting line-up for the last five matches in all competitions. The team has not had this much continuity for over eight years, since being unchanged for six games in a row under Lorenz-Günther Köstner in autumn 2012.
Keeping it clean: The Wolves have gone six games in all competitions without conceding a goal, while five consecutive Bundesliga clean sheets is a current club record. VfB Stuttgart hold the all-time Bundesliga record – the Swabians went nine matches without Timo Hildebrand picking the ball out of his net in 2003.
Bielefeld a good omen: Before this season, the last time that Wolfsburg and Bielefeld came up against each other in a Bundesliga campaign was in 2008/09, when VfL became German champions for the only time. Back then, the Wolves won 3-0 at Bielefeld on Matchday 25, which was their seventh straight victory as they marched towards the title.
