RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Prediction: Bundesliga Match on 16.05.2021
RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg will meet in the Bundesliga this weekend, with the runners-up spot being the position that both clubs are fighting for. Wolfsburg will still need the points, as they look to finish in the Champions League places.
RB Leipzig’s feint hopes of winning the Bundesliga were ended last weekend, as Bayern Munich were crowned champions. Leipzig’s form over recent weeks has been extremely disappointing, as they have failed to get on the same run as they were in the first half of the season. They have won just twice in their last six, while they have been beaten three times during that run. Leipzig have also been beaten in two of their three most recent fixtures.
The German giants were beaten at the death by Borussia Dortmund last time out, as Jadon Sancho scored the winner three minutes from time. Leipzig would have been extremely disappointed not to have come away from the game with a point, as they fought back from 2-0 down after goals from Lukas Klostermann and Dani Olmo. Finishing second in the league will be their aim now.
Wolfsburg are still in control of their own destiny when it comes to a Champions League finish this season. They will not be able to drop out of the top-four this weekend even if they are beaten by Leipzig. However, defeat could see Frankfurt move level on points with them ahead of the final game of the season. Victory in Leipzig would effectively mean Champions League football next season due to their superior goal difference compared to Frankfurt. Their recent form has seen them lose three in five, but they did get an important win last weekend against Union Berlin. Josip Brekalo was in excellent form, as he scored a stunning hat-trick.
RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Head To Head
The last three league meetings between Wolfsburg and Leipzig have ended in draws. However, Leipzig did win the last competitive meeting between the clubs, as they claimed a 2-0 win in the DFB Pokal back in March. Wolfsburg’s last win of any description against Leipzig came back in November 2018.
RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Prediction
A win this weekend would seal second-place in the Bundesliga for Leipzig, while three points is also vital for Wolfsburg. However, both sides will be keen to not lose the game, which means a draw could be the most likely result.
