2011-2012 Bundesliga Match Day 12 Borussia Dortmund Versus VfL Wolfsburg Saturday, November 5, 2011 3:30 PM (CET) Westfalenstadion, Dortmund Borussia Dortmund enters this match having had their three-match winning streak in the Bundesliga snapped by a draw at VfB Stuttgart last weekend. However, BVB is also coming off a hard-fought Champions’ League victory over Olympiakos Piräus. In their last five Bundesliga matches, VfL Wolfsburg has two victories (both at home against 1. FC Kaiserslautern & 1. FC Nürnberg), one draw (at HSV) and two defeats. The defeats came on the road at Bayer Leverkusen and in their last Bundesliga match, at home against Hertha BSC Berlin. Personnel-wise, BVB is quite possibly better off than we have been for awhile. Lucas Barrios is apparently100%, but it is not known whether he will start against Wolfsburg. Honestly, I would move Lewandowski to Kagawa’s spot and move Barrios in at striker. But we will see what Jürgen Klopp chooses to do on Saturday. Sven Bender is once again a match-day decision. My opinion is if Bender isn’t 100%, he should not play. Start the match with Sebastian Kehl and Moritz Leitner at the double-six. I really don’t have any real information on Wolfsburg’s personnel situation. “Bild” reported earlier in the week that Wolfsburg’s top goal-scorer this season, Mario Mandzukic, was sick. However, it has been reported that Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath has stated Mandzukic will be able to play on Saturday. In the last six meetings in Dortmund between these two clubs, BVB has won three, drawn two and lost one. BVB won the meeting in Dortmund over Wolfsburg last season 2-0 behind goals from Sahin and Kagawa. In the last ten meetings between the two clubs overall, BVB has won five, drawn two and lost three. BVB swept VfL Wolfsburg last season winning 3-0 in Wolfsburg along with the aforementioned 2-0 victory in Dortmund. The last time the clubs met in November was a goalless draw in Wolfsburg on November 30, 2008. For those here in the USA, the match will be shown live on GolTV starting at 10:30 AM Eastern time.
