Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Saturday, 29th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg).
Wolfsburg were not expecting such a horrific start to their 2016/17 Bundesliga campaign despite missing a number of key players through injuries. Now they long serving manager Dieter Hecking is sacked, they are in for a tough outing as Bayer Leverkusen come to visit on matchday 9.
The Wolves started their 2016/17 league campaign with a 2-0 away win at Augsburg. But since then, they have failed to win in their 7 matches so far. With 6 points to their name, Wolfsburg currently occupy the last relegation spot. They are one of the worst scoring sides in the league so far after managing just 5 goals and failing to score in half of the games this season.
Bayer Leverkusen on the other hand are also not in best of the shapes. They suffered back-to-back defeats, the latest came against an unlikely candidate Hoffenheim. And that too by a heavy 3-0 margin in front of their home fans. In all honesty, Leverkusen’s season never really took off as expected. They have already lost 4 matches this season, with 3 of them coming away from home. They are currently 11th in the league table with 10 points, just 4 points above Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
On current form, it look like Bayer Leverkusen have a better edge going into this fixture. However, they have a poor record at the Volkswagen Arena. Also Wolfsburg are coming in with a new manager and the morale is expected to be a bit better. As a result, this looks like a fixture where the underdog trumps the favourites.
