Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg

, KO: 18:30 Mar 10, 2024, BayArena
Wolfsburg

Bayer Leverkusen continue their march towards the Bundesliga title as they welcome Wolfsburg to BayArena on Sunday. Leverkusen are still looking almost unstoppable at the moment and should be too strong for Wolfsburg, who have found things difficult in recent weeks.

Bayer Leverkusen are looking increasingly likely to claim the Bundesliga title as the season progresses. They have moved 10 points clear at the top of the standings and are still unbeaten across all competitions this season.

Xabi Alonso’s men were given a test on Thursday as they came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at Qarabag in their Europa League round of 16 first leg. They had triumphed 2-0 at Cologne for their fifth straight Bundesliga win prior to the trip to Azerbaijan.

While Bayer Leverkusen are unbeaten across all competition, they often do their best work at the BayArena. They have won four of their last five Bundesliga home matches, keeping four clean sheets in that run.

Wolfsburg travel to BayArena off the back of a 3-2 home defeat to Stuttgart in their previous Bundesliga fixture. Second half efforts from Joakim Mæhle and Lukas Nmecha were not enough as they were let down by poor defending.

That result means Wolfsburg have picked up just one win from their last 10 Bundesliga matches. They have been plagued by too many draws having been held six times in that run.

Wolfsburg have also found things difficult on their travels having picked up just one win from their last 11 away matches. They have been beaten six times in that run, although three of the last four fixtures have ended in draws.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Bayer Leverkusen as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 1/3 by bet365. A victory for Wolfsburg is valued at 7/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 9/2 by William Hill.

Head to head

Bayer Leverkusen have a 24-20 advantage with 10 draws from 54 previous matches against Wolfsburg. Leverkusen also claimed a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in October.

Players to watch

Much of Bayer Leverkusen's attacking threat comes from the wing-back position, particularly with Alex Grimaldo, who has nine Bundesliga goals this season. He was on target in the reverse fixture and is valued at 3/1 by bet365 to score anytime on Sunday while Bayer Leverkusen have also caught the eye defensively lately keeping four clean sheets in their last five home matches.

Jonathan Tah and Piero Hincapie should continue at centre-back and can lead the hosts to another clean sheet at 11/10 with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Given Bayer Leverkusen’s defensive solidity, a win to nil could be considered at 13/10 by BetVictor. Their prolific attack has also earned them a few one-sided wins which means a -1 handicap could be considered at 10/11 with Coral.

Bayer Leverkusen have scored in both halves in their last five Bundesliga matches and a similar pattern is valued at 20/21 by BoyleSports.
