One of the better sides in the country, Wolfsburg have always been in and around the top-seven mix for the last couple of years. Last season, Die Wolfe picked up a staggering 49 points from 34 games to finish seventh on the log, qualifying for the Europa League.

Meanwhile, Bayer Leverkusen narrowly missed out on a Champions League place, and were forced to settle for fifth spot. Seeking another top-four charge this season, Bosz’s men will be gunning for an opening fixture win over Wolfsburg to get on the front foot as soon as possible.

Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Last season could easily have turned ugly for Wolfsburg as they were pretty much lackluster all through. Playing by fits and starts, Die Wolfe never really got into their stride as they struggled to find consistency.

Occupying the final European spot on the standings, Wolfsburg can thank their stars for making the cut for continental qualification. With Freiburg challenging them for seventh spot, Glasner’s men managed to pip Breisgau-Brasilianer to that position.

Even though the club struggled last term, there were some positives to take from their experiences. Now, Wolfsburg will be looking to pick from where they left off the previous season, and probably challenge for a Champions League place this time around.

Wolfsburg enjoyed a stellar pre-season campaign, winning all of their six games throughout the tour. The highlight of these friendlies was a convincing 3-0 victory over fellow Bundesliga outfit FC Koln.

Last seen in action against Kukesi in a Europa League second qualifying round fixture on Thursday, Die Wolfe roared to an emphatic 4-0 victory. Clearly the better side all through the game, Wolfsburg easily brushed their weak opposition aside.

Weghorst was the cream of the crop for the Wolves, grabbing a brace to put Kukesi to the sword. Lacroix and Mehmedi also got in amongst the goals as the German side advanced to the third round. Returning to domestic action this weekend, they will have Leverkusen to contend with.

Leverkusen were in tip-top form last season, but managed to miss out on top-four. A poor run of form towards the end of the season saw them lose ground as Monchengladbach pipped them to pick up that final Champions League ticket.

With a new season around the corner, Die Werkself have another chance to have a go at top-four, or even the league title. Unfortunately, they lost star player Kai Havertz to Chelsea as the German was prized out of the club. Kevin Volland also found his way to AS Monaco.

However, the club have acquired Patrick Schick in turn, as a direct replacement for their former maestro Havertz. The new signing will be under pressure to hit the ground running for Leverkusen, starting with a strong performance this weekend.

Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

Towards the end of the previous season, Wolfsburg hammered Leverkusen 4-1. However, this was just their second victory over Bosz’s charges in their preceding nine league matches.

Apparently, Leverkusen have a depleted squad having lost a couple of key players this summer. As such, they may have lost some of the edge that saw them challenge for the league title last season. We fancy a win for the hosts in this one.
