    On Saturday afternoon, Dortmund host Wolfsburg at the Signal Iduna Park, as BVB look to return to the top of the Bundesliga.

    Dortmund are currently second in the German top-flight table, trailing champions Bayer Munich by virtue of an inferior goal difference of seven. BVB look to be back on form, though, having recorded two consecutive league wins.

    Last time out, Lucien Favre’s team recorded a 3-2 victory at Hertha Berlin, which was the fourth straight BVB game in the Bundesliga to produce over 2.5 goals. The fact that Dortmund have scored at least two goals in three of their last four league matches has contributed to those recent high scoring games.

    Dortmund are formidable opponents on home soil, as BVB are unbeaten in 13 Bundesliga games at home, having recorded 11 wins. Favre’s side has been prolific at home in the German top-flight, scoring at least twice in 15 of their last 16 matches at the Signal Iduna Park.

    VfL Wolfsburg have played themselves into contention for European football next season. In fact, the Wolves are only outside the top-six by virtue of an inferior goal difference of two to Bayer Leverkusen.

    The Wolves recent form has not been that consistent in the Bundesliga, although they have won three times in their last five league outings. Last time out, the visitors recorded a 5-2 home win over Fortuna Dusseldorf.

    The visitors recent Bundesliga games have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six league games. The Wolves have scored at least two goals in four of their last six Bundesliga matches.

    Wolfsburg’s recent away form has been highly inconsistent. Their recent away matches in the German top-flight have been high scoring, as five of their last six matches have produced over 2.5 goals.

    Forebet predicts that Dortmund will record a third straight league win in a high scoring game to maintain their title challenge.
