Wolfsburg is playing very well lately and they can complain about the last round game at Nuremberg, where they leading the result, but had they had to divide the points. Previously won four consecutive wins, two of them away and one against Borussia Dortmund in front of their fan . In that game they played without their playmaker Diego, but they did not bother to win 2-1 and after being losing the game 0-1. In Nuremberg Diego returned to the lineup, but despite he was brilliant he got the fifth yellow card, so he will not be in this game. The rest of the team iss exactly the same and it does not change for several rounds, which is really worth mentioning .
Now the coach Hecking will repeat it again and just throw D.Caligiuria to replace Diego, as was the case against Borussia. They also use to play great in front of their fans and the home record would have been perfect if it wasn’t a defeat against Braunschweig. Besides Diego, due to injuries are still out of action Trasch , Koo and Vierinha .
HSV has a problem with his first midfielder and one of the best players, Van der Vaart, who is injured again, but HSV didn’t missed him in the last home game where they defated Hannover. It can be said that they had no difficult task, due to the desperate opponents situation, however, was not what it looked like after the Hannover took the lead. HSV has showed strength and turn the score to 3-1, and the greatest merit belong to Badelj and Beister. It was just another conceded goal by the worst dfense of the Bundesliga despite that in the last games they significantly improved. Ili?evi? replaced van der Vaart and he played very well.
Wolfsburg plays better, and even more as hosts, already showing in this season they can defeat any team even Borussia. They should not feel too much the absence of Diego, especially because HSV is also without van der Vaart, so i prefer back the hosts here.
