Leipzig have slipped to six points behind the league leaders in recent weeks, as they have gone two without a victory. They will be looking to get back on track this weekend, as they come up against a Wolfsburg side that has gone three without a victory.
RB Leipzig now sit six points off the top of the standings in the Bundesliga, as they have gone two games without a victory. However, they could still play a key part in the race for a Champions League spot. They come into this round of fixtures sitting fifth in the standings, but they could move back up to third with a victory this weekend should results go their way.
However, they will likely need to be more professional than they were last weekend, as they were edged out by title-chasing Union Berlin. Leipzig took the lead in the 24th minute through Benjamin Henrichs, but they squandered that advantage by conceded twice in the final half an hour of play.
Wolfsburg will have the home advantage this weekend, as they also look to get themselves back into the race for a European finish this term. The German side currently sits seventh in the overall standings, but they are just five points off the Europa League spots and seven points adrift of the Champions League positions.
However, their recent form has been very damaging to their chances of a European finish, as they have gone three without a win. Over that period, they have suffered two defeats. But, they were able to avoid a third straight loss last weekend, as they picked up a draw against Schalke. Still, their performance in that game wasn’t the most productive, as they managed just two shots on target.
Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig Head to Head
Leipzig has picked up victories in each of their previous two fixtures against Wolfsburg. Both of their wins were recorded by 2-0 scorelines. However, they have been without a victory away from home against Wolfsburg since March 2017. In fact, three of the five previous meetings between the sides at Volkswagen Arena have ended in draws.
Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction
Wolfsburg’s recent run of form is a concern for this fixture on Saturday. Therefore, we expect Leipzig to get back to winning ways and re-enter the conversation for a Champions League spot with a comfortable 2-0 win.
