Wolfsberg enjoyed a fantastic domestic season last term after managing a commendable 5th place finish and the Austrian side were handed a great opportunity to make their first ever European appearance.

Dietmar Kuhbauer’s men performed wonderfully well in the Second Round qualifiers to see off the challenge posed by Shakhtyor and the Austrian side have now arguably been handed the biggest game in their history as they prepare to square off against German giants Borussia Dortmund.

Wolfsberg clearly head into the game as underdogs but one can be sure that they will not look to go down without putting up a proper fight. Brazilian star Silvio and new signing Philip Hellquist will be the key men for Wolfsberg for the clash.

It will be a dawn of a new era at Borussia Dortmund under new manager Thomas Ttuchel and there is a sense of quiet optimism surrounding the club at the moment following their difficult campaign last term.

Despite the widely reported summer exodus, Dortmund have been able to keep hold of most of their star players so far and there is no reason why the German giants cannot once again stake a claim for honours this term.

Following their 7th placed finish in the Bundesliga, Dortmund now have to participate in the Europa League and Ttuchel will surely be looking to go all out to win the tournament. First Dortmund have to qualify for the competition though and while the clash against Wolfsberg looks straightforward on paper, the German side most certainly cannot underestimate their opponents.

Gonzalo Castro and Julian Weigl are the exciting acquisitions Dortmund have made this summer and the duo are sure to feature in some capacity during the clash.

Wolfsberg vs Borussia Dortmund Match Prediction

Dortmund are clearly the overwhelming favourites to win the clash and while one can expect Wolfsberg to put up a fight, the away side should claim a comfortable victory.
