On Tuesday night, an inept Wolfsburg will host RB Leipzig at the Volkswagen Arena in a second-round matchup with the goal of breaking a recent DFB-Pokal curse against RB Leipzig. In their most recent Bundesliga match, the hosts lost 3-2 to Augsburg, who had 10 players, while Die Roten Bullen destroyed Koln, scoring six goals without a response.
Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig
With just one point from their previous two league games, RB Leipzig put an end to their hopes of playing in the Champions League the next season. They lost 1-2 at home to Union Berlin, who are direct opponents in the top four, last Saturday, therefore ending their chances of winning the championship.
The squad captained by Marco Rose scored their lone goal from the sole attempt on goal during the ninety minutes of play, although they did not contribute much in the closing third. It was a goalless draw away at FC Koln the previous time RB Leipzig failed to score, and we can already talk about their attacking crisis.
Rose’s team, which currently sits fifth in the league, will be looking for a victory on Saturday afternoon at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA against another direct opponent, Wolfsburg.
Right now, Wolfsburg is ranked seventh in the Bundesliga standings. They are currently six points behind RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt, and this is their last opportunity to close the gap and maybe compete in the Champions League the following year. However, given their recent dramatic decline in form, there is little reason to believe that the hosts will fare well in this match either.
The Red Bulls defeated Wehen Wiesbaden 3-2 in the opening round of the DFB Pokal in September, marking their sixth straight victory across all competitions.
After winning, they went three games without winning, but in the last ten days, they bounced back with victories against Cologne, Red Star Belgrade, and Darmstadt. The summer player exodus at Leipzig has been handled incredibly effectively. Players like Lois Openda, Xavi Simons, and Benjamin Sesko appear completely at home. They are a good bet to defeat Wolfsburg, who are struggling.
RB Leipzig is entering the game on a three-game winning streak and has triumphed in their last five away games. They are heavy favorites in the DFB-Pokal after defeating the hosts four times out of five. They won their largest game of the season on Saturday, and they’ll want to carry that momentum into this one.
Leipzig has won the championship the past two years, and given their strong performance on the road and their recent record against the hosts, we predict a straightforward victory.
Given that both Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig have had offensive difficulties lately. We anticipate a low-scoring match at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA on Saturday. Leipzig’s overall quality is superior, while Wolfsburg has looked awful over the past few weeks.
