Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 23.01.2021
Bayer Leverkusen will be looking for a huge win this weekend, as they look to put pressure on Bayern Munich at the top of the league table. Wolfsburg are a side in decent form, which means that they will face a stern challenge to achieve that.
Bayer Leverkusen brought an end to their inconsistent form in midweek, as they were able to claim a huge three points against Borussia Dortmund. That instantly increased their chances of finishing in a Champions League spot this season, but they may still have hopes of the title on their mind. They are seven points behind Bayern Munich at present, but the Bundesliga’s unpredictability this season means that they could have a chance of taking top spot if they can piece together a run of victories. Leverkusen were excellent in that win against Dortmund, as they took control of the game early on through a Moussa Diaby goal. Dortmund did find an equaliser midway through the second period, but Florian Wirtz netted the winner for Leverkusen with ten minutes remaining.
Wolfsburg look to be a team that are in great form at present, and a win this weekend could take them into the top four of the Bundesliga. They are sitting just one place behind Dortmund at present, but they are level on points with them. Wolfsburg have enjoyed excellent recent form, as they have gone three without defeat. They managed to pick up a win in their most recent fixture against Mainz. Both of the goals that they scored in that win came in the second half. Bartosz Bialek scored the opener in the 65th minute, before Wout Weghorst scored his 12th goal of the season to wrap up the points with ten minutes remaining in the match.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg Head To Head
Despite being one of the leading sides in the Bundesliga, Leverkusen haven’t beaten Wolfsburg in their last two fixtures. Their last win against their opponents this weekend came in November 2019. The sides played out a goalless draw the last time that they met.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Leverkusen looked very impressive in their recent win against Dortmund. If they are able to reach those levels again against Wolfsburg, then they should have any trouble getting the three points from the fixture. However, Wolfsburg will not make it easy for them.
