Eager to experience the sweet flavor of victory for the first time in 2024, Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim clash at the Volkswagen Arena in an enticing Bundesliga contest this Sunday.

After sharing points only once in 16 top-tier fixtures during the first half of the domestic campaign, Wolfsburg's return from the winter break has seen them transform into draw specialists, securing ties in all three of their initial league outings in 2024. During the last-time-out, Niko Kovac's squad couldn't convert their dominance on the field and the home advantage into a victory, ending up with a frustrating 1-1 draw against the relegation-battling Koln. Holding the 11th place with a respectable 22 points in their pocket, the Wolves from Lower Saxony will strive to regain their winning rhythm to rejuvenate their chances for a European stage entry.

As they carry a comparable weight of frustration alongside their Sunday counterpart, both going through the initial three league fixtures in the new calendar year without a taste of victory, Hoffenheim has withstood the tougher blows in terms of results compared to Wolfsburg. Having come away with nothing in their first two post-winter break assessments, experiencing a 0-3 setback against Bayern Munich and falling in a 2-3 defeat to Freiburg, Die Kraichgauer secured their inaugural point in 2024 by playing to a 1-1 stalemate against the tenacious Heidenheim. With that outcome, the Sinsheim-based club extended their unwanted winless streak to five matches, picking up a paltry two points in the process, which has hampered their pursuit of European berths.

Wolfsburg vs Hoffenheim Betting Tips: BTTS

As it's not easy to identify a clear favorite in this one between two out-of-form sides, and considering both are defensively unstable, our prediction leans towards an exhilarating contest with goals on the score sheet for both sides. Despite Die Wolfe's ability to establish an early lead in their recent outings, their defensive susceptibility has been a hindrance, causing them to lose valuable points, with just one clean sheet in their last 13 Bundesliga rounds. 

Volkswagen Arena faithful can anticipate another fixture where their beloved club finds the back of the net effortlessly, considering they host Hoffenheim, a team that, following Borussia Monchengladbach (38) and relegation-bound Darmstadt (47), ranks as the most porous in defense, having conceded an astonishing 37 goals in 19 matches. Bizarrely, Pellegrino Matarazzo has watched discontentedly as his team managed to keep the opposition off the scoresheet only once this term in 19 Bundesliga outings, indicating rather explicitly that Hoffenheim's defense resembles a Swiss cheese—full of holes. Given the remarkable 14 out of the last 15 H2H's between these rivals featured BTTS, with only Bayern Munich thwarting Die Kraichgauer's prolific offense from netting, we are assured of an exhilarating 90 minutes with goals on both ends at the Volkswagen Arena.

Wolfsburg team news

The pivotal center-back Maxence Lacroix is grappling with a groin injury, but he is expected to be in contention for the Sunday clash, including captain Maximilian Arnold, who returned to training after missing the 1-1 draw with Koln due to illness.

For the same reason as Max, 29-year-old midfielder Yannick Gerhardt sat out the last Bundesliga action, but he should be good to go for the match against Hoffenheim, while the striking duo of Patrick Wimmer and Lukas Nmecha remain sidelined due to injuries.
