Oliver Glasner’s Wolfsburg welcomed Florian Kohfeldt’s Werder Bremen on the 13th Bundesliga match-day. While Wolfsburg ended their losing streak a week ago in Frankfurt, Werder Bremen were without a win in the last six Bundesliga games before this game. Nevertheless, both sides are interesting to watch under their current head-coaches and could both be ranked higher in the league according to their xPoints values.
Lineups and formations
Wolfsburg deployed their typical 3-4-3 system under Glasner. With their narrow wingers occupying the half-spaces and being positioned between the opposition midfield and defence they enabled the wing-backs to push high up the pitch.
