Hamburg vs. Wolfsburg: Bundesliga – Match Preview

One of Hamburg or Wolfsburg will be in the Bundesliga relegation play-off and the pair meet in a deciding fixture on Saturday.

Wolfsburg need to avoid defeat to ensure they are safe, whilst a Hamburg win will see them move above their opponents who would drop into the play-off.

Hamburg have ended the season poorly, claiming just two points from their last five games.

Wolfsburg were held to a 1-1 draw by Borussia Monchengladbach last time out, requiring a Mario Gomez equaliser.
