Oliver Glasner’s side face a difficult trip to Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday night (20:30 CEST) in their first match after the international break. Here are all the key facts and figures on the game:

  • The Wolves have impressed away from home recently, winning six of their previous nine Bundesliga matches on the road. Their only defeat in that time came at Mönchengladbach (3-0) on Matchday 32 of last season.

  • Borussia were a formidable force on home soil last term, picking up more points in front of their own fans (38) than any other Bundesliga side apart from Bayern Munich (41). The Foals won 12, drew two and lost three of their 17 home league matches in 2019/20.

  • New VfL signing Maximilian Philipp could make his Bundesliga comeback against one of his favourite opponents on Saturday. Two of Philipp’s three Bundesliga braces have come against Gladbach – for Freiburg in a 3-1 home win in September 2016 and for Dortmund in a 6-1 home victory 12 months later.

  • Eight current Switzerland internationals play their trade at either VfL or Gladbach. The Wolves have Admir Mehmedi, Renato Steffen and Kevin Mbabu in their ranks, while Yann Sommer, Nico Elvedi, Breel Embolo, Denis Zakaria and Michael Lang all play for Borussia.

  • Josip Brekalo’s last four Bundesliga goals have all come from long range.

  • Wolfsburg have registered more Bundesliga victories against Gladbach (22) than against any other club.
