Wolfsburg v Energie Cottbus match preview

Wolfsburg's puts their unbeaten streak in the Rückrunde as they travel to face Energie Cottbus Sunday afternoon. As Felix Magath's side going for their remarkable eleventh successive victory they are also aware that following Schalke's defeat of Bayern could give them a five point lead as the Bundesliga campaign enters its final month.

Die Wölfe are quite obviously going forward in a stunning run and while many will point to the Bosnian connection of Edin Džeko and Zvjezdan Misimović, along with Grafite for their scoring prowess at the root of their improved play is the new found iron-clad defending abilities.

While the Lausitz side have rarely expierienced success against Wolfsburg, Felix Magath is more than aware he must be careful against Cottbus as they are fighting to avoid relegation and will put up a spirited effort. Bojan Prašnikar's side will play a highly physical style and care must be taken to keep Dimitar Rangelov and former Oţelul Galaţi man Emil Jula under-wraps.
