FC Bayern München v VfL Wolfsburg - Bundesliga
VfL Wolfsburg will host Koln on Saturday - Bundesliga

Wolfsburg will host Koln at the Volkswagen Arena on Saturday afternoon in the fifth gameweek of the German Bundesliga.

The hosts have endured a poor start to their league campaign and are winless in four games. They were beaten 2-0 by RB Leipzig last time out and were fortunate not to have lost by a bigger margin. Wolfsburg are 15th in the league table with just two points.

Koln, meanwhile, have had mixed results this season and have seemingly slowed down since their opening day win over Schalke. They played out a goalless draw against ten-man Stuttgart in their last game and had the heroics of goalkeeper Marvin Schwabe to thank for picking up a point.

The Billy Goats are eighth in the Bundesliga standings with six points from four games. They will enter the continental spots with maximum points this weekend.

Wolfsburg vs Koln Prediction

The Wolves are on a four-game winless run and haven't scored in their last three. They have, however, lost just one of their last seven home league games and will look to continue that form.

Koln, meanwhile, are undefeated in their last three games across competitions and have lost just one of their last six. They are, however, winless on the road in the Bundesliga this season and might settle for a point here.

Prediction: Wolfsburg 1-1 Koln
