Bayern Leverkusen – Wolfsburg Match Preview
Leverkusen will want to return to winning ways after suffering a disappointing loss at Bremen last weekend. They need to improve creativity in attack, while suspensions and injuries in defence continue to cost them stability. Kyriakos Papadopoulos will replace the suspended Ömer Toprak at centre-back and Sebastian Boenisch should replace Wendell who is suspended at left-back. On the left wing, Heung-Min Son is fully fit again and should return to the starting XI, with Julian Brandt and Josip Drmic starting on the bench. Wolfsburg are unbeaten in their last 8 matches and are lying 8 points behind Bayern in the league table. They will want to continue this impressive run to secure Champions League qualification next season and maybe something more. Maximilian Arnold and Josuha Guilavogui compete for a spot alongside Luiz Gustavo in midfield as will Vierinha and Sebastian Jung for the role of right-back, with Daniel Caligiuri will most likely keep his spot on the right wing, as Ivan Perisic is still out injured. This clash should be a very interesting one and the best Bundesliga predictions would suggest a few goals and anything but a boring draw.
