Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview
Two teams that experienced failure in their first Bundesliga fixture of 2019 face each other at the Volkswagen Arena, as Wolfsburg take Bayer Leverkusen with both sides defending European place hopes.
A 2-1 defeat at Schalke finished a six-game unbeaten run for Wolfsburg (W5, D1), a period that had moved ‘Die Wölfe’ from 12th to fifth. The hosts scored exactly two goals in four of those games, just as they have in five of their nine Bundesliga home encounters so far (W3, D3, L3)
The visitors are unbeaten in five of their nine away league trips (W3, D2, L4), but having lost three of those four losses by a two-goal margin or higher, Leverkusen will understand there’s lots of place for improvement.

- However, trips to the VOLKSWAGEN ARENA have never occurred a fun adventure for Die Werkself who have a poor record in away matches versus Wolfsburg.
Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Wolfsburg have to improve from a 2-1 defeat at Schalke last weekend. They were unbeaten in six continuous league matches prior to that and will desire to take advantage of the visitors still having to get used to their new manager’s strategy.
Leverkusen played pretty well for times in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Gladbach and were spurned several good chances by Borussia goalkeeper Yann Sommer. Manager Peter Bosz is supposed to start very attack-minded over here and beliefs for his new side to convert their opportunities better.
Assume this to be an emotional and open match with many chances at both ends of the pitch.
