Wolfsburg – RB Leipzig Match Prediction | 29-10-2019 12:00

Wolfsburg went into the international break on a low after consecutive defeats to league leaders Borussia Dortmund (0-1 defeat at home) and North German neighbours Hannover 96 (2-1 defeat away). Coach Bruno Labbadias change of formula, moving away from a tried and tested 4-3-3 for an alternate take on a 4-4-2, has brought around some positives though. Daniel Ginczek is developing a solid partnership up front with summer signing Wout Weghorst, and the latters numbers involvement in five of their last six Bundesliga goals (4 goals and 1 assist) is even more impressive when you look at some of the opponents Wolfsburg have faced over the past weeks (Bayern Munich among them).

The Red Bulls offensive style of the past been at the expense of their defence, but now theres a defensive solidarity which sees them head into this with five consecutive clean sheets and holding the best defensive record in the Bundesliga (9 goals conceded). A 3-0 win at home to Leverkusen last time out, a that result extended their unbeaten streak in the Bundesliga to ten consecutive matches (W6 D4), was a welcome result after a small hiccup away to Celtic in the Europa League. RB Leipzig are a side that look much more stable though. Were seeing a Leipzig side very much near the top of their game, but in a different respect to usual.

However, he made no more than five league appearances for Lyngby in the 2011/2012 season. At the age of 14 he joined Lyngby and he made his debut for the first team on 4 December, 2011. Yussuf Poulsen is a Danish footballer who started his youth career at BK Skjold. He came as a substitute in a match against Horsens after 84 minutes, substituting Mathias Tauber.

League Table

Leipzig themselves, meanwhile, haveconceded a league-low five goals over the same number. It will be very tough for a hit or miss Wolfsburg offence to do too much damage. Only six sides have conceded more goals than the Wolves (20) in the eleven Bundesliga matches so far in 2019, an average of around two goals conceded per game, so the Red Bulls should be able to maintain their two-goalper game scoring average against them. Leipzigs attacking recordcombined with Wolfsburgs lack of defensive form is the perfect mix for that bet. And backing the hosts to do just that looks a good option here.

Ultimately though, even without play-maker Emil Forsberg (see team news) youd fancy RB Leipzigs chances of coming out of this one ahead historically, this match-up has favoured the travelling side after all, with the home side winning just one of the last four league meetings between them. Wolfsburg have, however, failed to score in just one of their six Bundesliga outings at the Volkswagen Arena this term, and that was against league leaders Borussia Dortmund. Our prediction: 2-1 RB Leipzig. Bruno Labbadias men had their fair share of chances in that match too, and with a forward like Wout Weghorst brimming in confidence he even managed to score against Bayern you cant write off the home side for a goal of their own.

Yet another man to watch in the home team will be Austria international Sabitzer, who produced a thrilling performance in the 3-0 win over Hannover at the weekend. Leipzig play host to Wolfsburg at their Red Bull Arena in the German Cup third round. Timo Werner remains on the sidelines with injury, but Poulsen is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Red Bulls are eyeing their third consecutive win in all competitions and seeing that they rolled over the likes of Fortuna Dusseldorf and Hannover in previous two league fixtures, it is no surprise the hosts are seen as hot favourites to win Wednesdays football game. The Wolves have been having their ups and downs of late, but we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Leipzigs party at Red Bull Arena.

Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:

Ralf Rangnicks men ended their run of four games without scoring multiple goals with a massive 5-0 win at home toHertha Berlin and followed that up with a 4-2 win in Leverkusen last Saturday, meaning theyre unbeaten in twelve across all competitions (W9 D3) going into the weekend. This doesnt bode well against a Leipzig outfit that isnot only looking to home in on a return to the UEFA Champions League, but also seems to have refound their trademark attacking flair over the last few weeks. Such a run has put them seven points inside the top four, and a win here would all but secure that target.

Leipzig are simply too organised and lethal, while Wolfsburg too inconsistent against sides within the top four. He is Leipzigs top scorer with 15 goals so far this season six short of the Bundesligas leading scorer Robert Lewandowski and he also bagged a hat-trick last time out at the Red Bull Arena. Our prediction: 2-0 Leipzig. Danish forward Yussuf Poulsen is the player to keep an eye on going forward. Leipzig have won each of the last two meetings at home to Wolfsburg too, and its tough to see the visitors stopping this from being three in a row.
