Bayern Munich vs WolfsburgGerman Bundesliga, KO: 19:30 Dec 17, 2021, Allianz Arena
Bayern Munich will be aiming to strengthen their grip at the top of the German Bundesliga when they host Wolfsburg in a Friday night fixture. The visitors are in the middle of an abysmal run at the moment and should be in for a rough time at the home of the champions.
It has been a generally smooth campaign for Bayern Munich, who hold a comfortable lead at the top of the Bundesliga having suffered just one League defeat this season. They also qualified for the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League after ending the group stage with a 100% record.
Bayern Munich showed the full strength of their quality in their midweek Bundesliga fixture as they eased to a 5-0 victory at Stuttgart. Serge Gnabry netted a hat-trick while top scorer Robert Lewandowski added a brace.
That result means Bayern Munich head into Friday’s clash with nine wins from their last 10 matches across all competitions. Julian Naglesmann’s men are also on a six-match winning run at home with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Hoffenheim among their results in that run.
While Bayern Munich appear to be getting better as the season progresses, Wolfsburg are heading in the opposite direction. The visitors have been on a steady decline in recent weeks and are now down in the bottom half of the table.
Things are getting worse for Wolfsburg with their new manager bounce under Florian Kohfeldt only lasting a couple of weeks. They finished bottom of their group in the Champions League and are winless in their last eight matches, suffering seven defeats in that run.
Wolfsburg have lost their last four matches in the Bundesliga and were beaten 3-2 by FC Cologne despite taking the lead twice through Lucas Nmecha and Wout Weghorst. They also suffered a 3-0 defeat to Mainz in their previous away fixture.
