Wolfsburg dropped their form in comparison to a previous season and at this moment are pretty close to a relegation zone, now are only three points above relegation placed Werder and in 22nd round of Bundesliga are welcoming them, this is important match for both sides but they are in pretty bad shape and it will be difficult to achieve positive outcome. In previous round were defeated by Dortmund on the road with convincing result, simple they didn't had solution for great opponents and defeat was inevitable. In match before that managed to defeat Hoffenheim and ended streak of three consecutive defeats, from Cup were eliminated by leaders Bayern Munich after narrow defeat, now must try to retain their position above red zone.
Hosts must show improving especially in attack since so far in 21 round scored only 19 goals while conceded 31, 22 points collected simple can't be enough for some safer spots, they have imperative to celebrate tonight and are favorites but mustn't underestimate opponents. In previous two duels with guests were defeated but both times away from home, now have a chance for revenge and must show some pretty good performances to achieve victory. Last campaign they ended up at 8th position and five points separated them from qualifications for Europa league but now are fighting to avoid dropping under the red line. Midfielders Azzaoui (0/0), Dejagah (0/0) and forward Osimhen (0/0) will all stay out of action due to injuries while defender Rodriguez (20/2), midfielders Didavi (8/3) and Seguin (18/1) are all in doubt due to their injury issues.
Werder on the other hand ended last season at 13th spot at the table, they managed to survive thanks to a good results in second half of the season but now again are in trouble, after 21 round are at 16th spot at the table in relegation zone and must try to change something in their squad to improve form and get out of there. In last round guests managed to achieve victory away from home against 12th placed Mainz, that was their first victory after 11 games including friendly matches during winter break and there had a bit of luck since opponents were better in almost all segments of the game but Werder scored two quick goals on start of the match and until the end managed to keep a clean sheet.
Guests conceded 42 goals in 21 round and have worst defense in entire league, to survive they must show improving, however tonight are facing with side which wasn't so great in attack and have a chance to save their own net. Despite here are underdogs they aren't without chances but must show some quit good performances to overcome hosts. Visitors achieved only five victories in this campaign in Bundesliga and collected 19 points, that simple can't be enough for safe zone and unless don't show some improving won't be able to survive. Goalkeeper Drobny (10/0), midfielders Fritz (17/0) and Hajrovic (10/1) are all injured and will miss this game while midfielders Bargfrede (6/0), Grillitsch (11/1) and Delaney (5/1) are all having problems with injuries and are in doubt.
Wolfsburg must win this match, that is their only option to avoid dropping under the red line, here are favorites but in front of them are guests which are already under the line and this match can be crucial for both teams, still hosts are favorites and i believe that will manage to overcome Werder here.
