Arminia Bielefeld host Wolfsburg in a big Bundesliga clash on Friday night which has implications at both ends of the table.

Arminia had a great result on Monday night, but will feel that it could've been even better. They were 2-0 and then 3-1 up against Bayern Munich, but couldn't hold on for the three points.

That game ended in a 3-3 stalemate, with Arminia remaining in 16th place in the Bundesliga.

Arminia still have a game in hand, after their home game against Werder Bremen a couple of weeks ago was postponed due to inclement weather. With that game in hand, they are level on points with Hertha Berlin, but with a poorer goal difference.

Arminia will be looking to string together a few good results to take them out of the relegation dogfight in the Bundesliga this season.

Wolfsburg, on the other hand, are well in contention to finish in the top four. They are currently fourth with 39 points, and have a three-point lead over Bayer Leverkusen in fifth place.

In their last game, Wolfsburg drew 0-0 with Borussia Monchengladbach at home. That result ended a run of five straight league wins for Oliver Glasner's side.
