RB Leipzig to Win
Borussia Dortmund secured their third victory over RB Leipzig in the 2020/21 campaign and second in a week to lift the DFB Pokal. Julien Nagelsmann charges have the UEFA Champions League qualification secured but their second-place placement is under threat. After letting their guard down against Dortmund, they cannot have a repeat of the same against a fellow top-four contestant. Wolfsburg will fancy their chance against the ailing Leipzig but their return of three defeats in five away fixtures does not inspire confidence in their abilities.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Leipzig have not allowed either theirs or their rivals indulgences in front of the goal, and have been involved in low scoring fixtures at the Red Bull Arena. It is the same state of affairs for Wolfsburg on the road. Both sides have taken the pragmatic approach. While Leipzig have seen four successive fixtures where the Under 2.5 has come true, Wolfsburg have been involved in five successive away matches with three or more goals. With both sides needing points to secure their respective positions, goals should come aplenty in this Sunday fixture.
Both Teams to Score: Yes
In their last ten away fixtures, Wolfsburg have failed to score once. It was in the DFB Pokal fixture at the same ground. In the four matches since, they have scored nine goals. Die Roten Bullen have not been as successful in front of the goal, struggling to trouble the scorers in three of their ten home fixtures. However, with just four goals in their last five home fixtures, their proficiency has been a cause of concern.
RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg: Team News and Match Preview
After their disappointment in the DFB Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund, Die Roten Bullen will have to wait another year for silverware success. The cup disappointment has come in a period where RB Leipzig have managed to secure a paltry four points from the available 12. Heading into their penultimate fixture of the 2020/21 campaign, their second-place under threat and Julien Nagelsmann's charges need to up the ante. With their forward lineup struggling to provide the goals, the Leipzig faithful will have their sights set on Dani Olmo. The Spanish midfielder scored in the successive fixtures against Dortmund to take his season's tally to seven goals and 12 assists.
Oliver Glasner has to be appreciated for the turnaround at the Volkswagen Arena. The manager has brought Die Wolfe back to the summit of the Bundesliga points table without complicating matters on the pitch or expensive displays in the transfer market. Wolfsburg occupies third place but still have an outside chance of finishing in second place behind Bayern Munich. They will have to overcome the challenge of RB Leipzig to ensure this. Die Roten Bullen are struggling for form and goals, one area where Wolfsburg have been reliable thanks to Wout Weghorst. The Dutch forward is Wolfsburg's top scorer with 25 goals and eight assists to his name in the 2020/21 campaign.
