Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg predictions and the best football betting tips for Friday night’s Bundesliga fixture plus access to a live stream of the match.
Leverkusen and Wolfsburg clash at the BayArena on Friday evening as the Bundesliga returns to its normal schedule and our Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg betting preview includes three bets.
It’s been a rollercoaster season for both sides this season, with both faring fairly average in the league, leaving Leverkusen in 6th and Wolfsburg in 8th. There are still seven games to go however so a late surge to gain a Champions League place is still a slight possibility. You’d think Leverkusen have a better chance of this as they are closer to the top four, as well as Wolfsburg having Real Madrid looming in the Champions League in what is probably one of the biggest ties in their history.
Leverkusen aren’t in the best form as of late, however you can ensure goals in their matches. Crushing defeats to Mainz and Werder Bremen were then followed by an impressive comeback at Augsburg, where they were trailing 3-0 but manged to salvage a point with three late goals. They have won their last two games to nil so there are slight improvements, though you would expect a team of Leverkusen’s obvious quality to beat Hamburger SV and Stuttgart.
Wolfsburg have a truly shocking away record this season. Dieter Hecking was always going to be stretched trying to keep his team competitive in two demanding competitions, and after losing star man Kevin De Bruyne last summer it seems like the seasons exerts have taken its toll. They have only won two league games all season away from home, against doomed Hannover 96 and newly promoted Darmstadt 98. I do feel some of the players will have one eye on next Wednesday’s match at home to Real Madrid as well.
My first Bayern Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg prediction for this match is Leverkusen to win. They are very solid at home, and away from home Wolfsburg are woeful, and very rarely score considering four of their 11 away goals came in the Hannover win. Betfred are offering Evens for this market, and considering the facts its one I do think is good value.
My second Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg prediction for this match is for Leverkusen to be winning by the 30th minute. This is because they need the win to put pressure on their rivals, and I can see them flying out of the blocks in this match. The Wolfsburg players will be distracted by next week’s mega match, and a lapse in concentration could be lethal in this match. William Hill are offering 11/5 for Leverkusen to be winning at the 30 minute mark.
My last football prediction for Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg this Friday night is an anytime goalscorer. Hakan Calhanoglu has just come back from a successful international break, having scored another wonderful free kick for Turkey. He is one of the best set piece takers in Europe, and is destined for big things in the summer I believe. He is 45/17 with 888Sport to score anytime.
Leverkusen to win – Evens with Betfred.
Leverkusen winning at the 30 minute mark – 11/5 with William Hill.
Hakan Calhanoglu to score anytime – 45/17 with 888Sport.
