Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg
2018/19 German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 1st September 2018
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Bay Arena (Leverkusen).
Bayer Leverkusen who usually do their best to finish in the top 6 of the Bundesliga are in unfamiliar territory when they head into this game in 16th position. This is because they went to Borussia Monchengladbach on the opening day of the season and lost 2-0. Now they are at home they will want to rectify this and start their league campaign properly.
Wolfsburg will be the visitors on Saturday and they are in 5th place after they beat Schalke 2-1. This was a thrilling game that was locked at 1-1 and it took a goal in the 94th minute to seal it and all three points for Wolfsburg.
The bookmakers by the look of the opening prices are not giving Wolfsburg much hope and Leverkusen have been installed as the odds on favourites.
Indeed we can back Wolfsburg at such prices of 5.00 (4/1) to win which says all we need to know about the thinking behind this game. Leverkusen will have extra motivation to get the win given that they lost their first game of the season also.
