Arminia Bielefeld entertain Wolfsburg at Bielefelder Alm on Saturday as Bundesliga action returns after the international break.

The hosts are second-from-the-bottom in the league standings and managed to record their first win of the campaign in their previous outing. They overcame Stuttgart 1-0 in their away fixture.

Wolfsburg had a great start to their Bundesliga campaign but lost steam midway through and lost four games in a row. They have managed to return to winning ways and have two wins in their last two outings, while also managing to keep a clean sheet in both games.

Their home game against Augsburg ended in a 1-0 win on 6 November.

On opponents Arminia: "I see a lot of elements of a style of play that involves quick transitions. What also makes Arminia tough opponents is that they’re constantly changing systems."

Arminia Bielefeld vs Wolfsburg Head-to-Head

Kramer zum Personal: „Schöpf hat das 2. Spiel für 🇦🇹 nicht gemacht und ist topfit wieder in Bielefeld angekommen, er ist ein Kandidat für Samstag. Patrick Wimmer konnte noch nicht voll mittrainieren, aber wir haben ja noch Einheiten. Das wird eine knappe Entscheidung.“#DSCWOB

Arminia Bielefeld vs Wolfsburg Prediction

Arminia's win over Stuttgart was a solid one in which they showed a lot of promise in the final third but they are the lowest-scoring side in the division and could struggle here.

Wolfsburg have a win and clean sheet in their last two games, so despite missing a few key players due to injury, they should be able to eke out a victory here.

Prediction: Arminia Bielefeld 0-1 Wolfsburg.
