Will Bruno Labbadia be the new coach of Schalke 04? This rumor haunted the media during the week after it became known that VfL Wolfsburg’s coach would not renew his expiring contract in the Autostadt. Since Domenico Tedesco was dismissed at the Royal Blues on Thursday and Mike Büskens and Huub Stevens are intended only as an interim solution, at least the basic conditions would be given to start talks for the new season. The fact is that the often ridiculed Labbadia has done very good work with the wolves or is still doing it. Because it is also clear that the coaching team with the former national striker at the top will do everything to lead the Green-Whites back to Europe until the end.
Football Betting Prediction Wolfsburg vs Dusseldorf
On Saturday afternoon is for Wolfsburg vs Dusseldorf, according to the odds, a mandatory task on the program. The fact that the venture against the newcomer, however, could be more complicated than expected, is made clear by the fact that the current table player in the season so far made only four of the twelve home games victorious. To make matters worse, the Funkel-Eleven is an extremely uncomfortable opponent, who lost away only one of the youngest five matches in the Bundesliga. For this reason, it should be clear even before a detailed analysis that between Wolfsburg and Dusseldorf the value will be found on a tip on the fact that the Rhinelanders kidnap at least one point from the Volkswagen Arena. Will the imminent departure of Labbadia, which is very popular among gamers, bring new unrest to the VfL team?
Wolfsburg – Statistics & Current Form
That at VfL Wolfsburg, the gap between reality and claim often gap far apart, we have already noticed several times in recent years. In the current season, however, Bruno Labbadia and his coaching team have impressively managed not only to meet the expectations of the Green-Whites, but even to surpass them. With only a few changes, the former HSV coach led the team, which in the previous year was often still labeled as a “mercenary troupe” and only in the relegation fixed the league, to today in seventh place and continues to dream of returning to the European business realize. The gap to sixth place is currently three points, although with the Hertha, Werder Bremen and Hoffenheim three more ambitious teams lurk on a slip-up of the wolves. The car drivers made such a slip-up in the previous week, when they were shown the limits at FC Bayern’s 0: 6 in the Allianz Arena and offered one of the weakest performances of the season. Perhaps the catastrophic appearance had something to do with the ongoing discussions about Bruno Labbadia, because at least after the controversial interview of Jörg Schmadtke two weeks ago, in which the sports chief admitted to have no good relationship with his coach, the focus is on the sporty visibly lost.
On Tuesday it was finally confirmed that Labbadia will leave the former German champions at the end of the season. This at this time quite surprising message – actually club and coach wanted to put together in April – leaves on the one hand, of course, and on the other hand, an insecure team, probably only in the coming weeks learns who will train them in the future. The hottest candidates are currently Marco Rose and Oliver Glasner and are both active in the Austrian Bundesliga.
“I’ve been thinking about the future over the past few weeks and have now come to the conclusion that I will not be available to VfL Wolfsburg as of this summer.” – Bruno Labbadia
The mentioned uncertainty is an aspect that makes a prediction in favor of the guests on Saturday between Wolfsburg and Dusseldorf more likely. Also should be noted the home record of the Green-Whites, which by no means corresponds to a European Cup contender. Only four of the twelve matches so far in the Volkswagen Arena were won by VfL. In particular, when the wolves were forced to take the initiative themselves and find creative solutions to a good defensive alliance, they were having a hard time benefiting, over the course of the season, time and again from the typical little bit of luck that one can count on by no means should leave. The bottom line is the overrated by the bookmakers a bit over, which is why the duel Wolfsburg vs.. Dusseldorf the odds on the supposed outsider in any case should be kept in view. With the exception of the three long-term injured Camacho, Azzaoui and Ginczek, all men are on board. Only Willian and Steffen were beaten a bit during the week.
Expected formation of Wolfsburg:
↪ Casteels – William, Knoche, Brooks, Roussillon – Guilavogui – Gerhardt, Arnold – Mehmedi – Klaus, Weghorst
Last matches of Wolfsburg:
⚽ 09.03.2019 – Bayern vs. Wolfsburg 6: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 03.03.2019 – Wolfsburg vs. Werder Bremen 1: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 23.02.2019 – Gladbach vs. Wolfsburg 0: 3 (Bundesliga)

Dusseldorf – Statistics & Current Form
Hardly anyone would have thought before the start of this Bundesliga season that the Fortuna from Dusseldorf before matchday 26 has already made the league perfect with one and a half legs. In fact, before the guest appearance in the Autostadt the Rhinelander have twelve points ahead of the relegation place and therefore no longer need to worry about staying in the upper house. On the one hand, this comfortable starting position naturally gives you a good mood around the Merkur Spiel-Arena, but on the other hand it also creates a certain amount of looseness, which could have a positive effect on the rest of the season. Before the last match on Monday evening against Eintracht Frankfurt, which was lost in the end unfortunately 0-3, the newcomer had collected from ten Bundesliga matches outstanding 22 points. In the so-called Pfannenstiel table, which aims at the re-installation of Globetrotters Lutz Pfannenstiel on 16 December, the Fortuna was with this sensational yield in second place behind FC Bayern Munich. In this respect, it is somewhat unusual that even on Saturday afternoon at the game Wolfsburg vs Dusseldorf a tip on the red-whites is offered with such high prices.
The last away game of the Flingeraner should also be in good memory, because almost exactly two weeks abducted all three points in the small West Derby on Schalke thanks to a 4-0 victory -> you can watch the goals in the Bundesliga highlights on NowGoal.eu. In the away table, the climber improved to a solid eleventh place. Interesting here is the fact that only five clashes were lost in the foreign. From the youngest five away games, there was even only one defeat, with the form-strong Leverkusen.
“We know that we are far from safe and have not yet been saved. We are realists. ” – Friedhelm Funkel
It is therefore not to be ruled out that the red-whites traded on the paper as outsiders in the eighth competitive match for the first time get a threesome against VfL. For the longest-serving coach of the highest German league, Friedhelm Funkel, it would be an additional satisfaction, because neither as a coach nor as a player, the today 65-year-old could win against his twelve years younger colleague, Bruno Labbadia. The failures of Contento, Drobny, Zimmer, Ducksch and Kownacki ensure that the starting eleven, despite the aforementioned bankruptcy against the SGE, will not change much. Karaman is the first option for Kownacki. Barkok or Bodzek would join the team should Kevin Stöger not be fit in time.
Expected formation of Dusseldorf:
↪ Rensing – M. Zimmermann, Ayhan, M. Kaminski, Gießelmann – Sobottka, Stoeger – Lukebakio, O. Fink, Raman – Karaman
Last matches from Dusseldorf:
⚽ 11.03.2019 – Dusseldorf vs. Frankfurt 0: 3 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 02.03.2019 – Schalke Vs. Dusseldorf 0: 4 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 23.02.2019 – Dusseldorf vs. Nuremberg 2: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 17.02.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Dusseldorf 2: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽ 10.02.2019 – Dusseldorf vs. VfB Stuttgart 3: 0 (Bundesliga)
