Wolfsburg v Hamburg Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 29th November 2013

Wolfsburg head into this game friday night having had a decent enough start to their new campaign so far and currently occupy 5th place in the league table and are well within contention of qualification to Europe next season and Dieter Hecking and his side will be confident of obtaining the right result in this one having been in excellent form of late.

Hamburg head into the game having had a much tougher time than their hosts in their opening 13 matches of the new season and currently occupy 11th position in the league table. Bert van Marwijk’s side have only managed two victories away from home this season and going up against a side that has a very strong record at home, this is certainly going to be a very tough game for Hamburg to come away from with anything on friday night.

106 goals have been scored during the previous 86 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.11 which strongly suggests that we should see at least a few goals scored during this game on friday night.

Wolfsburg: W W W W D

Hamburg: D W L L W

Woflsburg have the clear advantage heading into this game on the recent form stats having won 4 of their previous 5 matches played. Hamburg have found things more difficult than their hosts having managed just 2 wins from their last 5 games played of which they have lost 2.

Wolfsburg v Hamburg Match Betting Odds Market.

Wolfsburg have definitely enjoyed the better results this season and now with home advantage where they have only been beaten once all season they certainly look the more likely to win this game on friday night so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers making the hosts the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price of 17/20 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has a strong chance of happening in this game as both games between the two clubs finished 1-1 last season, so probably sensible to get your cover bets on the draw here at decent odds of 29/10 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Hamburg have not managed to beat Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena since the 12th February 2011 and with them having not had the greatest form away from home this season it does look unlikely that Bert van Marwijk’s side will win this game and their current odds of 17/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) certainly highlight this.

Wolfsburg v Hamburg Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I really like the home side here as they head into this game with not only having home advantage where they have only been beaten once all season, but also have by far the better recent form which has seen them win 5 of their last 6 matches played at the Volkswagen Arena.

Hamburg do seem to struggle on their travels this season and with a couple of key players missing from their squad they are going to find this game extremely difficult to get something from on friday night and I just can’t see a shock result happening here, despite the last two games between the clubs last season both having finished 1-1.

The goal stats suggest we should see at least a few goals scored in this game so other markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Total Match Goals 2 or 3, Over 2.5 Goals and Anytime Goalscorer could also provide plenty of value, but for me I am going for Wolfsburg to win this game and add another important 3pts to their tally.
