- Wolfsburg v RB Leipzig (Both Teams To Score - Yes)
- Wolfsburg v RB Leipzig (Anytime Goalscorer - Angelino, J)
Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig meet in a massive Bundesliga fixture on Saturday afternoon at the VW Arena. It is a top-six showdown with both clubs seeking to take huge steps in the title race. RB Leipzig are coming off of a 3-1 loss at home to Borussia Dortmund. The loss was made worse by Bayern Munich losing to Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2. The Red Bulls were unable to take advantage of Bayern Munich’s slip up. A win versus Borussia Dortmund would have taken Julian Nagelsmann’s team to the top of the Bundesliga table.
Instead of being in first place going into the weekend, RB Leipzig are still in second and two points off of Bayern Munich. Meanwhile, Wolfsburg are sixth on 25 points from 45 possible. Just six points separate Wolfsburg from RB Leipzig and eight from league leaders Bayern Munich.
The Wolves are winless in back-to-back games. After suffering a 2-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg fell to a 2-2 draw versus Union Berlin last weekend. These clubs met three times last season in all competitions with Wolfsburg gaining a draw in two of those games. RB Leipzig’s only win against Wolfsburg last term came in the German Cup. That game ended 6-1 in favour of the Red Bulls.
RB Leipzig will fancy their chances against Wolfsburg as they attempt to keep pace with Bayern Munich, who play at home versus Freiburg.
Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig Betting Odds
RB Leipzig are unbeaten in four straight matches on the road in the Bundesliga. Two of those games ended in wins while two were draws. The good news for Nagelsmann is that his team are on a two-match away winning streak. Goal scoring has been an issue for the club away from the Red Bull Arena in the post-Timo Werner age. The Red Bulls have bagged just nine away goals in seven matches.
In spite of their goal scoring issues, leading sportsbooks have RB Leipzig as the favourite to win away at the VW Arena on Saturday. RB Leipzig are at odds of 11/10 to win at full-time against the Wolves. The VW Arena has been a struggle for RB Leipzig since joining the Bundesliga in 2016. Just two wins in five trips to the VW Arena have been recorded by RB Leipzig. One of those wins was their 6-1 German Cup victory last term.
Wolfsburg have won just once at home in five attempts versus RB Leipzig since 2016. Two of those five games ended in draws, including last season’s nil-nil draw at the VW Arena. Wolfsburg are at odds of 27/10 to win at full-time on Saturday. The Wolves have the league’s second-best home points total in the Bundesliga with 17 from 21 possible. Coach Oliver Glasner’s team are on a five-match winning streak at home. Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig are at odds of 47/18 to draw.
Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig Team News
Glasner could be without up to four players for the fixture on Saturday versus RB Leipzig. The biggest issue Glasner has is replacing influential midfielder and captain Maxmilian Arnold in the centre of the pitch. Arnold received a straight red card against Union Berlin last weekend. He will miss the match with the Red Bulls through suspension.
Maxence Lacroix could return to the team in time for the fixture. He is overcoming a knock. Jerome Roussillon is also in line to return to the team this weekend. He too is recovering from a knock. Marin Pongracic is a doubt as it stands due to a muscle injury.
Nagelsmann continues to have a long list of injured players at RB Leipzig. The team’s semifinal performance in the Champions League last August and quick restart of the new season has caused players to suffer muscle injuries and fatigue. Captain Marcel Sabitzer is the latest name to hit the injured list. He has a groin issue and came off against Borussia Dortmund early on. Tyler Adams and Amadou Haidara are competing to take his place.
Kevin Kampl is still ruled out with a leg injury and January signing Dominik Szoboszlai is still ruled out until next month. Justin Kluivert and Christopher Nkunku could both return to the team from their respective injuries. Meanwhile, Ibrahima Konate and Benjamin Henrichs are still unlikely to return this weekend. Nagelsmann received a blow this week with combative midfielder Konrad Laimer ruled out for the rest of the campaign. If RB Leipzig fall of the pace for the title, it will be due to injuries.
Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction
Both teams to score: YES @ 4/6 - BET NOW
Four of the last eight matches between Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig finished with both teams scoring goals. RB Leipzig are not scoring many goals on the road this season. They need to find the back of the net this weekend, however, if they want to keep pace with Bayern Munich. Two of Leipzig’s last six matches finished with both teams scoring goals. Four of Wolfsburg’s last six matches in the league ended with both sides scoring.
Angelino to score anytime @ 5/2 - BET NOW
Former Manchester City full-back Angelino has tallied four league goals in 14 matches for RB Leipzig. The left wing-back has scored a total of eight goals in 22 appearances in all competitions. He hasn’t scored in his last four matches but did tally assists in each of his last two Bundesliga games showing he is around the goal.
Under 2.5 goals scored @ 21/20 - BET NOW
Eight of the last 10 matches between these sides dating back to 2016 in all competitions ended with under 2.5 goals scored. With RB Leipzig struggling to score goals post-Werner, they could struggle to get the win and fall further off the pace with Bayern Munich. Wolfsburg are in poor form at the moment and should be happy with a draw against the Bundesliga’s second-placed team.
Four of Leipzig’s last five league matches ended with under 2.5 goals scored. Wolfsburg saw two of their last three league games finish with fewer than 2.5 goals. Saturday’s match could be a low-scoring affair with the teams drawing for the third straight time in the Bundesliga.
