There is plenty of room for improvement as far as VfL’s overall head-to-head record against Borussia Dortmund is concerned – from a Wolves perspective at least. The Green-and-Whites have won only 11 of the teams’ 56 meetings compared to BVB’s 33, with 12 games ending in draws. Read on for more facts and figures on VfL’s third Bundesliga away game of the campaign:

  • Dortmund last failed to find the net in a 2-0 defeat at the Volkswagen Arena on 8 November 2022. They have scored in all 24 Bundesliga outings since.

  • The Black-and-Yellows are also unbeaten in 17 Bundesliga home games, winning 14 and drawing three.

  • The Wolves are the only Bundesliga side yet to concede from a set play this season.

  • Dortmund’s 6-0 victory in the teams’ last encounter was Edin Terzic’s biggest win as a Bundesliga coach. It was also Niko Kovac’s heaviest-ever defeat in Germany’s top flight (as a player and coach).

  • Tiago Tomas has faced Dortmund more often than any other side in his career. The VfL attacker has played three Bundesliga games against BVB as a Stuttgart player, as well as two for Sporting CP in the Champions League.

  • Only once before have the Green-and-Whites collected more than nine points from their opening four league games: They had 12 points on the board at the same stage of the 2021/22 campaign.
