RB Leipzig have fallen below the standards which they had initially set, and are without a taste of success for the past two Game-weeks.

RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Prediction

Wolfsburg are unbeaten in their campaign so far and are currently a point behind Borussia Monchengladbach, who established themselves as table toppers prior to the international break. Be that as it may, it needs saying that the visitors have been fortunate in their fixtures so far and are yet to face a team that finished inside the top five last time around.

Their previous clash at home saw them take down Union Berlin by 1-0 scorecard. While on the road, they pulled off the same result against Mainz.

On the other hand, Leipzig have been hit by a sharp decline in form. The hosts have transitioned from being on a winning streak to sporting a dismal three-match winless run. That too, in all competitions.

Despite the dismal form that Leipzig are on, it needs saying that the home team have been faring well against this foe in their previous clashes. Julian Nagelsmann’s men have been securing the bragging rights in their last three meetings with Wolfsburg here. And, have been doing so with a clean sheet intact in their past two in a running.

To make matters worse for the traveling faithful, Leipzig have been at the losing end just once in their home clashes so far. Given the dominant h2h statistics at hand for the hosts, the chances of Wolfsburg salvaging even a point from this tie are certainly looking bleak.

Additionally, the home team have keen on bagging early goals and have found the back of the net, prior to the restart, in two of their last three clashes here. Taking into account that the hosts have also managed to breach this foe before the break, in each of their previous three head to head matchups, count on Leipzig to slot the ball home in the first half without fail.
