Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Saturday, 26 January 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA (Wolfsburg).
Both Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen lost the winning momentum with their respective defeats to the likes of Schalke 04 and Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend. Which of these two sides will find the way to rebound from such failures and return to winning ways on Saturday when they take on each other in one of the most interesting fixtures of the Matchday No 19 in Bundesliga?
The Wolves did not quite deserve to lose at VELTINS-Arena, but they allowed a 78th-minute goal from Daniel Caligiuri which left them empty-handed. Bruno Labbadia’s men thus ended a three-game winning streak. They fell down to 6th place in the ladder. A win here would be of a massive importance for Wolfsburg who are still only three point short of 4th-placed RB Leipzig.
Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head
Bayer Leverkusen lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into their 45th meeting with the Wolves.
However, trips to VOLKSWAGEN ARENA have never been a pleasant experience for Die Werkself who have a dreadful record in away games against Wolfsburg.
Bayer Leverkusen lost 15, drew 1 and won only 6 of 22 away matches against the Wolves.
All of last 11 H2H matches between these two sides saw three or more goals scored.
Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
Leverkusen could not find the back of the net past the stern defense of Monchengladbach’s last weekend at BayArena. They thus ruined a fine finish to the previous year which saw impressive back-to-back wins over Schalke 04 and Hertha BSC.
Nonetheless, Peter Bosz has a strong firepower on display in the final third and we would be surprised to see Bayer failing to convert up front for the second time in a row. As all of past 11 H2H ties produced at least three goals, backing a high-scoring contest looks to be just the way to go here.
