Bayer Leverkusen welcomes VfL Wolfsburg to the BayArena in a derby game in round 18 of the German Bundesliga.
Leverkusen was after the Christmas break in a crisis, but after a massive win against Borussia Dortmund a few days ago, their self-confidence is sky high. Leverkusen were great in this game with 47% possession, 13 shots on goal, 6 corners, 3 big chances and a solid 83% of correct passes. With an early goal in the 14th minute and a late goal in the 80th minute, Leverkusen won this game 2-1. With these 3 points Leverkusen is back in the title race and is now in 3rd place with 32 points, 32 goals scored and 17 goals conceded. Alario scored 8 goals, Schick added 5 goals while Bailey added 4 goals and 5 assists. Arien, Paulinho, Palacios, Weiser, and Bender are all hurt. As always, Leverkusen has a lot of talent in the squad, and Florian Wirtz is one of the best young players in Germany with a bright future. Let’s just hope that it is developing in the right direction.
Wolfsburg was one of the best teams in the Bundesliga this season and is taking part in the Champions League. Wolfsburg’s offensive was a bit inconsistent, but their defense is worthy of the title. Wolfsburg is now in 5th place with 29 points, 26 goals scored and only 19 goals conceded. A few days ago Wolfsburg played against Mainz on the way and, as expected, they were the better team in this game. Wolfsburg had 63% possession, 63% possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corners, 2 big chances and 76% correct passes. It took Wolfsburg a while to get their offensive in order but they scored two goals in the second half and won this game 2-0, rightly so, I might add. Weghorst is Wolfsburg’s top scorer with 12 goals but the problem is the lack of other options in Wolfsburg. Roussillon is currently the only injured player for Wolfsburg. It’s okay to dream and Wolfsburg is certainly living their dream this season, but they need to improve their offensive game as soon as possible because I think they will need it if they want to stay in the Champions League race. Wolfsburg is healthy, they have quality, they have depth, but they have to remain consistent.
Leverkusen only lost 1 game at home this season, while Wolfsburg only won 2 games on the road. The road team has had a lot of success in this matchup, and the trends are pretty much here too. After Leverkusen won the derby game against Dortmund, I can see that they are continuing at the same pace here. I take Leverkusen home.
