Wolfsburg are struggling for form at the moment and could soon resume their battle for survival. They were beaten 3-0 by Augsburg in their last game and were fortunate not to have lost by a bigger margin.
The Wolves are 13th in the league table, with 31 points from 28 games. They will now look to return to winning ways this weekend as they look to pull clear of the drop zone.
Arminia Bielefeld are floundering in their race for survival. They held on for a 1-1 draw against Stuttgart in their last game, profiting massively from the wasteful finishing of their opponents to pick up a point.
The visitors sit 16th in the league with just 26 points from 28 games. They will now look to begin picking up points as soon as possible to avoid an impending return to the bottom tier.
