The last match: The two sides last met in March 2021 at the wohninvest WESERSTADION, when Wolfsburg ran away 2-1 winners. Josh Sargent scored an own goal to give the guests the lead, before Wout Wegshorst extended the Wolves’ advantage in the 42nd minute. Kevin Möhwald pulled a goal back for Werder just three minutes later, but the score remained the same. Wolfsburg were also victorious earlier in the season, winning an eight goal thriller 5-3.
Bundesliga stalwarts: The 2022/23 season will be the 60th edition of the Bundesliga. Werder Bremen have so far embarked on 58 Bundesliga campaigns, which is the joint-highest of any side. Only Bayern Munich can boast as many seasons in Germany’s elite competition.
A tight head-to-head record: The sides have met on 48 occasions in the league and the overall record is tight. SVW have been victorious 19 times, whereas VfL have got the better of the Green-Whites on 20 occasions. Ten of the matches have been draws.
High-scoring affairs: There have been an average of 3.56 goals per game between the two sides. Since Wolfsburg’s promotion to the Bundesliga in 1997, Werder have scored more goals against the Wolves than they have against any other opponent (85 goals). Werder have beaten Wolfsburg 19 times during this period, and have only celebrated more wins against one other side (Hertha BSC, 23 wins.)
Werder’s goal machines: Niclas Füllkrug (19 goals) and Marvin Ducksch (20 goals) both broke the 19 goal mark for Werder last season, and it was the first time that two Werder players have done so in the same campaign. Füllkrug was also the last player to score for Werder in the Bundesliga, when he netted against Gladbach on the final day of the 2020/21 season. The Foals, however, went on to win the game 4-2.
