Wounded Wolfsburg could be set for more misery
Bundesliga playoff first leg BT Sport 3, 7.30pm Thursday
The fact that six of the last seven Bundesliga relegation playoffs have gone the way of the higher-ranked team will give Wolfsburg heart ahead of a visit from Lower Saxony neighbours Braunschweig.
They are, however, devastated to be even involved after Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Hamburg and coach Andries Jonker has another injury headache with Jakub Blaszczykowski set to miss out.
Braunschweig’s away record in Bundesliga 2 was modest but they are capable of avoiding defeat.
