Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg – Bundesliga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction
Bundesliga action will continue on Tuesday when Match Day 28 gets underway. Last weekend saw a number of matches take place successfully once more despite the safety and health concerns in Germany.

It will be Bayer Leverkusen’s 28th league appearance of the season when they take on Wolfsburg on Tuesday. They have earned all victories except for one in their last six Bundesliga matches; WWDWWW. They are 3rd on the league table with 53 points after scoring 52 times. Leverkusen has conceded 32 goals this season and have 16W, 5D and 6L after 27 games. Peter Bosz, coach of Bayer Leverkusen will probably use his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. Bayer’s prolific goal scorer, Kai Havertz who scored a brace for Bayer over the weekend now has 10 goals. He will be something to think about for Wolfsburg when they meet on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg will be coming off a 0-2 defeat to Dortmund. That game was their first loss in six Bundesliga matches; WWDDWL. Now, they will be looking to overturn that loss on Tuesday at the BayArena. Wolfsburg are 6th place on the Bundesliga table after that loss and now have 10W, 9D and 8L. So far, they have earned 39 points from 27 league appearances. So far, they have scored 36 goals this season thanks to a goal ratio of 1.4. Oliver Glasner is will likely use a conventional 4-4-2 formation as he did against Dortmund. The duo of Daniel Ginczek and Wout Weghorst (11 goals and 3 assists) will be leading the attack for Wolfsburg when both sides clash on Tuesday.

The first leg in November, 2019 ended 0-2 in Bayer Leverkusen’s favor. Bayer’s Karim Bellarabi (25′) and Paulinho (90′) scored both goals to help their side secure the victory. Before then, they met in January, 2019 and that game ended 3-0 with Leverkusen taking all three points once again.

Both sides remain in commendable form but Wolfsburg has failed to defeat Bayer Leverkusen in their last two meetings. It looks very unlikely they will do so when they meet Bayer on Tuesday.

A victory is expected for Bayer Leverkusen considering their remarkable performances ever since the return of Bundesliga from the long break.

A 2-1 victory for Bayer Leverkusen is predicted at the end of the game.
