Since 2015, Borussia Dortmund have won every single one of their away games in Wolfsburg. A sixth consecutive victory would set a new club record. What is more, a new Bundesliga record beckons if the Black & Yellows are able to keep a clean sheet. Here are the match facts.
The scenario: Wolfsburg are in third place with 57 points, while Borussia - five points behind with 52 points - sit in fifth place. A win would see the Black & Yellows pull to within two points of their opponents. Recent history speaks in favour of the visitors: BVB have won on each of their last five road trips to Wolfsburg (scoring 13 goals and conceding just two).
Home/away: Only two teams have won more home games than Wolfsburg this season (nine). The Wolves' only home defeat came in a 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich on 17 April. Borussia Dortmund have lost just one of their last four away games. Only two teams have picked up more away wins than BVB (seven).
Head-to-head record: Borussia Dortmund have won each of their last five games against Wolfsburg; against no other current Bundesliga club do the Black & Yellows have a longer active winning streak. BVB have managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last eight meetings with Wolfsburg, meaning they are on the cusp of a historic record: never before have a Bundesliga club managed to go nine consecutive games against a single team without conceding a goal. The last Wolfsburg goal against BVB was scored by Daniel Didavi on 20 September 2016. The last time BVB dropped points away to VfL was on 16 May 2015, when Jürgen Klopp's Black & Yellows went down 2-1 to Dieter Hecking's Wolves.
Statistics: Only two teams have won more games than Wolfsburg and Dortmund this season (16 wins). Only Bayern and Eintracht have lost fewer games than VfL (five defeats). The team from Lower Saxony have only failed to find the back of the net in one of their last 16 games. Only Leipzig (10) have gone a goal down in fewer matches than Wolfsburg (13). BVB have managed to score at least once in each of their last 28 games; the last time they went on a longer scoring streak was over seven years ago.
Personal: Raphael Guerreiro has won each of his six Bundesliga games against VfL, scoring three goals in the process. Manuel Akanji has been on the winning side in all five of his Bundesliga appearances against Wolfsburg. Marco Reus has scored ten goals in his last 13 games against the Wolves. (br)
