Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg – Bundesliga : On one of the most interesting matches of this 8th round of the Bundesliga…
We will have a match at the BayArena, in Leverkusen, between the local side Bayer Leverkusen, managed by Heiko Herrlich and Wolfsburg, managed by Martin Schimdt.
This match will be a clash between two of the most historical clubs of the Bundesliga.
The hosts might not be able to count with Thomas Jedvaj and Aranguiz, while the visitors will not be able use Jung, Bruma and Brooks, who are injured, and Ntep, who is suspended.
I will now leave here the probable starting XI’s:
Bayer Leverkusen: Leno – Retsos, Tah, S. Bender, Wendell – L. Bender, Volland, Kohr – Bailey, Alario, Brandt
Wolfsburg: Casteels – Verhaegh, Tisserand, Uduokhai, Itter – Guilavogui, Camacho – Arnold – Didavi, Origi, Malli
The home side goes into this match on a miserable 12th place after 7 rounds of this German league, having one of the best attacks of the competition but also one of the worst defences.
They have a great balance in terms of results obtained so far, despite the fact that they’ve faced some of the stronger Bundesliga’s teams like Bayern, Hoffenheim or Schalke 04.
On the home matches, the team has 2 wins and 1 draw in 3 matches.
As for the visitors, they are just behind Bayer Leverkusen in 13th place, having one of the worst attacks on the competition and also one of the worst defences,
averaging less than 1 goal scored per season on the Bundesliga and only winning 1 match so far on this beginning of the season, which was on the 2nd round, going on a 5-match winless streak after that.
Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Schmidt’s team hasn’t had, in fact, a very easy task on this beginning of the season and not even their manager swap changed that; in any way,
Bayer itself is not in great form, since they are far from the objectives they have set for this season, although I must highlight that they have already faced several teams who are fighting for the top spots on this Bundesliga.
I still believe that the hosts might get the win on this match, given the bad form of their opponents
and the fact that they are typically very strong at home (like I’ve said, they scored 7 out of 9 possible points on home matches), which makes me believe they will win again.
Besides that, and considering the offensive and defensive records, especially Bayer’s, I believe we will have some goals on this match.
