All you need to know about VfL’s home game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
Just before the next international break begins, the Wolves have the chance to extend their unbeaten start to the Bundesliga season to seven games when they take on Hoffenheim on Sunday 8 November (kick-off 15:30 CET).
The outlook is rather different for the visitors. Sebastian Hoeneß’s side have been unable to build on victories in their first two league outings, and they travel to Wolfsburg with just one point from their last four Bundesliga matches. We round up the rest of the standout facts and figures ahead of Matchday 7:
The Wolves have only lost one of their last eight matches against Hoffenheim (with three wins and four draws), and are unbeaten in the last four (two wins, two draws). The last time the Green-and-Whites lost this fixture was in Sinsheim in March 2018.
Hoffenheim have only won one of their 12 Bundesliga trips to Wolfsburg (with five draws and six defeats, and a lone 2-1 victory in February 2012). They are currently on an eight-game winless streak away to VfL.
Oliver Glasner’s side also went undefeated in their first six Bundesliga matches last season. Glasner is the only VfL coach ever to have enjoyed such a start to a league campaign – and he has now done so twice. The Green-and-Whites had four more points on the board by this stage in 2019/20 however.
Wout Weghorst has caused Hoffenheim plenty of problems in the past, racking up five goals and two assists in four previous meetings.
Andrej Kramaric, who has been absent recently after testing positive for COVID-19, is currently second in the top scorer’s chart, having found the net six times in just three matches. Robert Lewandowski (10 goals) leads the way, while Lucas Alario and Erling Haaland have each scored five.
