Struggling Wolfsburg host league leaders Bayern Munich in this clash that may push them into the relegation zone.

Wolfsburg would prefer to have played against Bayern at a better time.

They are currently 14th in the league table and are gradually sliding towards the relegation zone.

A loss in this game, and a win for Augsburg could see them move down into the relegation playoff zone.

They have won only 2 of their last 6 games, and have lost 4 of those games.

Playing at home does not do them much good – they have won 3 and lost 3 of their last 6 home games and they managed to score 3 in their last home match.

Bayern Munich are still hurting from their Champions League exit by Real Madrid and will look to punish Wolfsburg in this encounter.

They are currently 8 points clear of RB Leipzig after 30 league games and unless a major capitulation occurs, they are on their way to another league title.

Away from home, they have not won any of their last 3 matches in all competitions however those games have been against tougher opponents.

They have failed to score in their last 2 away league games.
