Despite finishing the last Bundesliga season in 6th place, Wolfsburg decided to part ways with their coach Bruno Labbadia and brought in 44-year-old Oliver Glasner from LASK Linz. The Austrian already implemented a lot of new tactical ideas, which could be seen in the first friendlies of the new season. In the season preview, we will provide a scout report on Wolfsburg for the 2019/20 season.

This tactical analysis will particularly point out, why Glasner’s team will be an exciting side to watch and how they could finish even higher than last season. To do that, our analysis will break down the tactics Wolfsburg used in the most recent games.

Back three is the way to go for Glasner

Concerning the formation, Oliver Glasner experimented a little in the first games. However, these experiments did not affect the backline, as this was always a back three. It seems almost certain that Glasner will use this throughout the whole season. Against PSV Eindhoven, he tried a 3-4-3 formation with a holding midfield.
