Wolfsburg vs Leverkusen Prediction: Bundesliga | 16.04.2023

Bayer Leverkusen will be bidding to maintain their charge toward the European spots in the Bundesliga on Sunday. However, it could be a challenging test on the road against a Wolfsburg side looking to recover following defeat in their previous match.


Bundesliga Preview

Xabi Alonso has done an excellent job at Leverkusen, as the former Liverpool star has transferred the team into one that is capable of challenging for Europe. Leverkusen come into this fixture after winning each of their last five, with their win over Eintracht Frankfurt last week lifting them up to sixth. They could yet end the season in a much higher position, as they are just five points off the Champions League spots. 

Leverkusen’s five-game winning sequence is the longest active winning streak in the Bundesliga, and it is also the second time that they have managed that feat this term. Under Alonso, Leverkusen has picked up 38 points from their 19 matches. Only Bayern Munich and Dortmund have picked up more points over the same period. 

Wolfsburg’s season isn’t likely to have the same exciting conclusion, as they remain down in eleventh in the standings. They come into this fixture after landing just one victory in their previous five matches, and that sees them sit four points off Leverkusen in sixth. 

Their most recent defeat was suffered last weekend away from home, as they fell to a 2-0 loss against Borussia Monchengladbach. That means that they come into this fixture on Sunday without a win in two. Wolfsburg has also been held to draws in each of their previous three home matches, and they are without a victory in five at Volkswagen Arena.

Interestingly, none of the previous 13 Bundesliga matches between these two sides have ended in a home win. Leverkusen comes into this fixture without a defeat in their previous six Bundesliga away matches against their rivals this weekend. Furthermore, over that period, Leverkusen has accumulated 16 points out of a possible 18.

It certainly appears sensible to side with the away trend in this fixture on Sunday afternoon. Leverkusen comes into the showdown as the most in-form side in the Bundesliga, and they could improve their chances of a late push for a Champions League spot with a straightforward win over Wolfsburg.
