Wolfsburg host Borussia Monchengladbach in a Bundesliga clash at the Volkswagen Arena, with major implications near the top of the table.

Gladbach will be looking to reduce the deficit they have with Wolfsburg to just three points, giving themselves a better chance of finishing in the top four. Their aim is to secure a spot in next season's UEFA Champions League.

Last weekend, they lost an important game against FC Koln. In what is considered a big rivalry in north-western Germany, Gladbach went down 2-1, with Elvis Rexhbecaj emerging as the hero for Koln.

Wolfsburg are sailing smoothly in the Bundesliga, and occupy third spot in the standings. With 38 points from 20 games, Wolfsburg are just three points behind second-placed RB Leipzig.

Last weekend, goals from Wout Weghorst and Ridle Baku gave Wolfsburg a well-deserved 2-0 win over Augsburg.


Wolfsburg vs Borussia Monchengladbach Head-to-Head

It was a late show in the reverse fixture between these two sides. Jonas Hoffman opened the scoring for Gladbach, but Weghorst equalized in the 85th minute, as the game ended 1-1.
