Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Volkswagen Arena.
The Company’s Eleven narrowly missed out on a ticket to the Champions League the last season, after finishing two points below Monchengladbach.
After inspiring performances all through their campaign, this was obviously a tough miss, and they would be determined to give an even better shot this time around.
However, they are taking on an opponent who have given them plenty of problems recently. The Wolves had defeated them 1-4 on the road the last time these two met on the pitch, and that was three months back.
Oliver Glasner’s men are also dead-set to have a much better campaign this time around, after having had to settle for a mere seventh-place finish in 2019-20.
Likely, we are in line for a fierce encounter, and considering the offensive potential on either side, and the holes in defense lately – expect a goal-fest.
Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head (h2h)
- 16 of the former 19 overall clashes had goals from both teams.
- 13 of the previous 14 match-ups had three or more goals.
- At this stadium, the guests are on a four-game winning run.
- The last the visitors failed to find the back of the net at this ground was back in 2002.
- Meanwhile, since 1998, the hosts have failed to score just thrice at this venue.
Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction
The Wolves have scored a total of eight goals from their last two match-ups alone, and they are also on a five-game winning run. They had also defeated this same opponent with a 1-4 scorecard on the road just three months back.
In addition, they are determined to finish in the top-most tier this season, and a win in the opener, that too against a formidable side will be a huge confidence-booster.
Meanwhile, their counterparts had won their latest fixture (which was in the DFB Pokal), with a 0-7 win on the road, and the game had taken place just a week back.
They were also unbeaten in ten of their former twelve fixtures away from home, and in the process they had gone through a five-match winning run as well.
On top of that, they also are on a four-game winning run at this venue in h2h encounters, and the last they failed to score at this venue was 18 years back.
Taking into account these stats, expect either team to show up with an intent to win. A win in this opening game could set the tone for the rest of the season, and we can surely count on attacking football all through the ninety minutes.
Considering these factors, expect a high-scoring game this Sunday.
