Bundesliga action continues with Wolfsburg taking on Borussia Monchengladbach at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday.

The visitors are 11th in the Bundesliga table, with seven points from six matches played so far. They have a record of two wins, a draw and three losses. They are coming off a shock 1-0 win against Borussia Dortmund in the league and will now be looking to build on that victory.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg have been excellent in the league, maintaining third position in the standings courtesy of a tally of 13 points from six matches.

However, their form has been jittery lately, with a 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim followed by a midweek 1-1 draw with Sevilla in the Champions League.

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Monchengladbach Prediction

Wolfsburg go into Saturday's game as favorites but will have to be wary of a talented Borussia Monchengladbach side who will be in high spirits after their win against Dortmund. The lack of creativity has been a concerning factor for Wolfsburg in recent games, and it will be intriguing to see how they bounce back from poor performances.

We foresee Wolfsburg grinding out a narrow win on Saturday.

Prediction: Wolfsburg 1-0 Borussia Monchengladbach
