The Bundesliga could not have started better in the new season. Rarely did the first seven games promise a more exciting round than this year. The classification is so close together that on the eighth match no fewer than seven clubs can conquer the top of the table. We are sure that the table will be thoroughly disturbed on the weekend.
RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Today’s Soccer Prediction
Two teams, both able to make the jump in first place, meet in direct duel to each other. RB Leipzig expects VfL Wolfsburg. While we could already expect the Bulls to be on top, the Niedersachsen is a little bit surprising again this season.
Behind Borussia Mönchengladbach, Wolfsburg is in second place in the table. 15 points after seven games are a terrific yield. The Wolves are the only team that has not suffered a defeat this season. Leipzig has one point less and is currently in fourth place.
Wolfsburg is currently the best defense in the league, while RB Leipzig had the best defensive of the Bundesliga in the previous season. Against this background, it could make sense in the match between RB Leipzig and VfL Wolfsburg to make a prediction on a few goals in this direct clash.
When these two clubs met in the Red Bull Arena for a match, the team that scored the 1: 0 win always won. For us, that means we can take a look at the live bets after the first goal of the game and maybe place another bet on the leading team. Especially if those are the wolves, it might be worth it.
In general, however, the bookmakers see the bulls ahead and that’s why in the match between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg a tip for a home win seems to be the first choice.
Prediction Today: RB Leipzig
RB Leipzig – Statistics & Current Form
The match between the Bulls and the Wolves could certainly be groundbreaking, because in less than two weeks these two clubs are facing each other in Wolfsburg in the second round of the DFB Cup. It is now time to show in the Bundesliga, on what the opponent can adjust in the cup match.
Whether Leipzig will be able to wipe one of the VfL, will show up, especially in the Red Bull Arena, it was not round in the last games. In the Bundesliga, there was a 1: 3 defeat against Schalke 04 and in the Champions League were subject to the Bulls against Olympique Lyon with 0: 2. Thus, Leipzig has not won in the last three competitive matches.
However, this is not a circumstance that particularly worries Julian Nagelsmann. However, we are a bit surprised that in the duel between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg only odds of just under 1.60 are offered to a home win, because the bulls weakened last and the VfL is unbeaten this season.
Perhaps it could be because of the fact that Leipzig has made a decent appearance before the international break at the match in Leverkusen. However, the chances of exploitation left something to be desired. Bayer 04 took the lead 1-0 in the middle of the second half. Christopher Nkunku scored a 1: 1 draw 15 minutes before the end.
Julian Nagelsmann sees his parallels between RB and VfL.
“Wolfsburg has a clear playing style and a clear structure. It is a team that is not peppered with top stars, but has a very good mentality and homogeneity. They’re good at firing. ” – Julian Nagelsmann
Wolfsburg coach Oliver Glasner has gone through the RB school in Salzburg and therefore recognizes Julian Nagelsmann a RB-style playing style and a clear structure, even if the wolves currently do not have the big stars.
On Saturday, RB Leipzig will miss the injured Tyler Adams, Ibrahima Konate, Patrik Schick and Hannes Wolf. For Kevin Kampl could slip back into the squad after seven weeks injury break. Emil Forsberg would be in the starting eleven just as conceivable as Diego Demme, who is building up a second mainstay with the FIFA department in e-sports at the Bulls.
Expected formation of RB Leipzig:
➲ Gulacsi – Mukiele, Upamecano, Orban – Klostermann, Laimer, Halstenberg – Nkunku, Sabitzer – Poulsen, Werner
➲ Trainer: Nagelsmann

Wolfsburg – Statistics & Current Form
The fact is that VfL Wolfsburg is the only Bundesliga club this season without defeat. However, some experts still see reason for criticism, because obviously the wolves have not had the big caliber in the German upper house in front of the chest. What the series of Lower Saxony is so worthwhile, will perhaps show on Saturday in Leipzig.
Wout Weghorst has collected six points in seven league games and can point to a good season so far. Nevertheless, the VfL attacker waits in vain for an invitation to the Dutch national team. More goals, perhaps also on Saturday in Leipzig, would be at least good arguments for a future nomination.
Generally, there are no top stars among the wolves. The team impresses with a working collective, which is more about the tactics than the very big playful class. Especially against teams that act aggressively, the wolves should be particularly dangerous. Therefore, we can imagine, in the match between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg to make the prediction that the wolves remain unbeaten in the league.
Before the international break VfL Wolfsburg struggled at home to a 1-0 victory over the newly promoted Union Berlin. Wout Weghorst was the scorer of the golden goal in the 69th minute. Thus, the wolves in competitive matches have been unbeaten for more than five months. In May, VfL, still under Bruno Labbadia, lost 3-0 in Stuttgart.
Many media are wondering when the Wolfsburg series will break. So they share a bit with the expectations of Wolves boss Jörg Schmadtke.
“We do not go into the game and say: Finally comes the first defeat. I would like it if we had no defeat by the end of the season. ” – Jörg Schmadtke
However, this also made it clear that the Lower Saxony does not wait for this defeat. On the contrary – he would not mind if VfL Wolfsburg remained unbeaten until the end of the season.
In terms of personnel, we continue to look at a lavishly occupied military hospital of VfL Wolfsburg. John Anthony Brooks, Ignacio Camacho, Koen Casteels, Daniel Ginczek, Paulo Otavio and Xaver Schlager are all still unavailable. In addition, there is Admir Mehmedi, who has suffered a hamstring injury in the Swiss national team in the game against Ireland
Expected formation of Wolfsburg:
➲ Pervan – Knoche, Bruma, Tisserand – William, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon – Klaus, Brekalo, Weghorst
➲ Trainer: Glasner

RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Direct Comparison & Statistics Highlights
Nine duels have been delivered to the two operating teams of Red Bull and Volkswagen so far. The direct comparison speaks to 5-2 wins in a draw for the Bulls. There were no special series with home or away wins for one of the two clubs. This suggests that everything is possible on Saturday.
Last season there were two home wins between these two opponents. Wolfsburg won first at home with 1: 0, before Leipzig could reciprocate in the second leg with 2: 0. It is striking that in seven of the nine games of these two clubs have fallen under 2.5 goals. We therefore do not expect many goals on Saturday.
RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Soccer Betting Prediction Explained
At RB Leipzig, the good start to the season in the last few games has gone a bit in the air. For three games, the Bulls are without a win and conceded in their own stadium recently even two defeats. Wolfsburg, meanwhile, has been unbeaten in competitive games for around five months. Thus, the wolves start on Saturday full of confidence.
The wolves are the best defense of the current season. Leipzig had to complain in the last season the fewest goals. That sounds like the audience did not get to see many goals. Therefore, the impulse goes clearly in the direction to give in the match between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg a tip on the odds for under-goals (-2.5).
