RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Match Preview and Predictions

Leipzig vs Wolfsburg-5 May 2018 Bundesliga Predictions by LeagueLane

RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).

RB Leipzig’s form looks to have hit a massive stumbling block over the last couple of weeks as the team will come into the last home game of the season off the back of four defeats and a draw in previous five games across competitions.

The horrific thread of result caused the Europa League elimination to Olympique Marseille as well as the drop to sixth place in the Bundesliga standings. The new Champions League campaign remains only a dream for the Bulls who are five points short of Hoffenheim in fourth with just two games left to play.

Can Ralph Hasenhuttl and his men at least secure the Europa League football next term in the remaining two games of the season? Next up for them are Wolfsburg who have woes of their own, concerned with team’s ambitions of playing the top flight football next term as well.

RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head

Teams have two wins each ahead of their sixth head to head meetings.

None of last four Hw2H contests offered three or more goals.

The two sides shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they met in mid-December last year at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA.

Leipzig lost last two home games to Wolfsburg without scoring a goal in the process.

RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg: Prediction

Wolfsburg dropped down to 1th place (a position leading to the relegation playoffs at the end of the season) after losing back-to-back matches to Borusssia Monchengladbach and Hamburger SV. Bruno Labbadia has reasons to be worried about his side’s defensive displays as the Wolves shipped three goals in each of the mentioned defeats.

Particularly painful was the loss to fellow relegation strugglers HSV last weekend as the Red Shorts are now just two points behind Wolfsburg down in the relegation zone. A loss here at Red Bull Arena could thus likely push Labbadia’s side into the danger area.

Since both teams have really been struggling to keep things quiet at the back lately, the best way to go would be backing a high-scoring contest here on Saturday. The value-seekers will fancy RB Leipzig to win & BTTS at 3.10.
