After a disappointing exit from the DFB Pokal, Bayer Leverkusen suffered another shameful defeat against PSG in the Champions League last 16, and are now returning back to Bundesliga action to secure their second place in the match against Wolfsburg, with the odds we’ll take from bet365.
Even though the visitors are on the second place in the Bundesliga table, the form they display is in contrast with what the hosts have. Wolfsburg can show off with three wins, in contrast with Leverkusen’s three losses. We are thinking for this particular match Leverkusen might play it defensively as to not concede any more goals, because while they played way better in Champions League than DFP Pokal, nobody can dispute Ibrahimovic’s greatness.
Wolfsburg comes from a win against Hertha, which saw them score two goals after being led, where Kevin De Bruyne’s genius got to shine again. This marks the Belgian’s second match in a row where he acts as the winning chip for his side, and it’s rather obvious where the goals will come from. Vieirinha was back in training, even if just with the fitness coach and Olic with Malanda were absent from Wolfsburgs’ training session because of some muscle problems.
One can’t really predict an outcome for this match, as odds are both teams will struggle to get the three points so vital for the European dreams. There will be goals though, and bet365 offers 1.70 odds for over 2.5 goals, and both teams to score is priced up at 1.57. We are going to bet 7 units on the second half having the majority of goals with 2.00 odds from the same bookie.
Wolfsburg: Team’s Formation
Bayer Leverkusen: Team’s Formation
End prediction for the match:
Second half with the majority of goals
