On Friday night, Bayern Munich have the chance to retain their spot at the top of the Bundesliga when they host Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.
The reigning German champions have kicked off their title defence with four wins out of their five games so far. Carlo Ancelotti’s team have been on fire in front of goal so far in the German top-flight, scoring two or more goals in four of their last five league games.
In fact, they have scored two or more goals in six of their last seven Bundesliga games stretching back to last season. Die Bayern have not only been potent in attack but have also kept clean sheets in three of their last four Bundesliga outings.
Bayern are formidable foes on home soil and are unbeaten in their last 24 home games in the Bundesliga. Ancelotti’s side have also won eight of their last nine league games at the Allianz Arena.
The champions are currently top of the German top-flight table and can extend their lead at the top with a victory in this clash.
Wolfsburg have enjoyed mixed fortunes so far this season in the Bundesliga, picking just five points from their first five league outings. Martin Schmidt’s side have failed to win any of their last three games in the German top-flight.
In fact, the Wolves record stretching back to last season has been poor, as the visitors have won just once in their last seven games in the German top-flight.
The Wolves recent Bundesliga games have been low scoring, with four out of their last five games in the German top-flight producing under 2.5 goals.
The visitor’s recent away record in the Bundesliga has been poor, as they have won just two of their last seven games on their travels in the German top-flight.
It is hard to see past a Bayern Munich victory in this clash and it could be high scoring too, as the home side’s games on home soil are usually goal-filled.
