BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday night, RB Leipzig host Wolfsburg at the Red Bull Arena, as the visitors look to consolidate their position in the Bundesliga top-four.
Die Roten Bullen conceded the German top-flight title to reigning champions Bayern Munich last weekend. The Bavarians are ten points clear of Julian Nagelsmann’s team, who are four points clear of Sunday’s visitors. A win would seal second spot, as they have already qualified for the Champions League for next season.
RB Leipzig’s recent league form has been inconsistent of late, as they have won just one of their last four matches in the Bundesliga. That run includes a 3-2 defeat at Dortmund last time out.
The home team has been difficult to beat at the Red Bull Arena of late, as they have lost just one of their previous four home games in the Bundesliga. However, Die Roten Bullen have also won just one of their last four league matches on home soil.
The Wolves look to be in good shape to make next seasons Champions League, as they are third place in the table, three points clear of fifth-place Eintracht Frankfurt. However, Olivier Glasner’s team has a far superior goal difference to Adi Hutter’s team.
The visitor’s challenge for a top-four finish in the Bundesliga has dipped slightly of late, as they have won two and lost three of their previous five games in the German top-flight. Wolfsburg got back to winning ways last time out, as they recorded a 3-0 home win over Union Berlin.
RB Leipzig look set to be without Tyler Adams, Christopher Nkunku, Dominik Szoboszlai and Lazar Samardzic through injury.
