Hamburg vs Wolfsburg Predictions

Only one point separates both Hamburger SV and Wolfsburg, who are all but mathematically safe for another season in the top flight. Hamburg have taken four points from their last two matches, with a 0-0 draw against top six side Mainz 05 and a 2-1 win over North-German rivals Werder Bremen in the “Nordderby”, leaving them five points clear above the relegation zone. Once again Hamburg look to add another year onto their beloved “record” of being the only team to be ever-present in the Bundesliga.

Last year’s runners up, Wolfsburg, have had a truly disappointing season. They stand just one point above Hamburger SV coming into this match, with 39 points and placed 10th, and now have no chance to qualify for European football again next year. Wolfsburg seem to have lost their momentum and motivation after their disappointing knock out from the Champions League against Real Madrid, with last Saturday’s 5-1 defeat away to Borussia Dortmund being their third consecutive Bundesliga defeat – the first time ever under coach Dieter Hecking. Wolfsburg are the joint most out-of-form side in the Bundesliga having only taken two points from their last seven matches (D2 L5).

Although Wolfsburg are unbeated against Hamburger SV in nine Bundesliga matches, the team certainly seems far from its former self. Wolfsburg have the worst away record in the Bundesliga this season, taking only ten points from 16 matches on the road (W2 D4 L10). If there were ever a time to favour Hamburg to break the chains on this nine match streak that Wolfsburg holds against them, it would be against this deflated, out-of-form and injury stricken Wolfsburg side. Hamburg have here a decent opportunity to finish as the top North-German side with a win against Wolfsburg this Saturday – the last time they were able to claim so was in the 2012/2013 season. Hamburg have, however, been very prone to errors defensively and have conceded at least one goal in each of their last three home matches in the Bundesliga. Combining this analysis and form trends with the statistics below, we expect Hamburg to win or draw with both teams to score to be the safe bet. We feel that a 1-1 draw at 6/1 (a common result for both sides) is also decent value for this match.
