Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 29th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET
Venue: Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena (Sinsheim).
Wolfsburg is giving some serious headaches for Leverkusen, with their valiant pursuit of the last available European spot. Both teams have posted the same number of points so far, and with the former going against Borussia Dortmund this match-day, it’s a great opportunity for Leverkusen to surge ahead in the table.
Hoffenheim will have to deal with the mental block of having lost the majority of their head-to-head games against this team, and that too at home. With the opponents under great pressure to perform, the hosts’ problems are about to be compounded. They have a good frontline that consistently provides goals, but curiously, they perform well on the road than at home.
