Hamburg vs Wolfsburg Prediction and Betting Tips: The Hosts Need to Win, the Visitors Need a Draw

14:30 Saturday 20 May 2017

Match Preview

This is the most important game on the last matchday in the Bundesliga, and it is quite exciting to write up the Hamburg vs Wolfsburg preview. Hamburg are currently in 16th place which leads to relegation playoffs against Eintracht Braunschweig who are about to finish third in the second division. Hamburg have 35 points, two less than Wolfsburg in 15th place. The script is simple – Hamburg must win to leapfrog the opponents and avoid the drop. Wolfsburg need a draw to be safe. It's a textbook relegation battle – a game everyone wants to witness.

Hamburg vs Wolfsburg predictions are not obvious. Hamburg are winless in five games, but they are spirited, and the injury time equalizer at Schalke on Saturday gives them a reason for optimism. Wolfsburg are a better team, but they have been erratic and inconsistent in a disastrous season, losing four out of the last seven games in Bundesliga.

  • Hamburg 1-2 Darmstadt

Hamburg vs Wolfsburg Picks and Betting Advice

The Hamburg vs Wolfsburg betting tips are rather difficult to make because both teams are inconsistent and both desperately need to get a good result to stay up. It is logical to assume, though, that Wolfsburg are simply too good to fail. History has always been on Wolfsburg's side in the past, and they never finished in the relegation zone. On the other hand, Hamburg ended up 16th both in 2014 and 2015, and they survived in relegation playoffs on both occasions. A draw will be enough for Wolfsburg to keep that tradition alive, and the odds are interesting at 3.50. With so much at stake, we shouldn't expect a lot of goals – the odds on under 2.5 goals are curious at 1.85.
