RB Leipzig Vs Wolfsburg Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Niko Kovac would have been honest about his team’s modest chances of increasing their point total while playing away at Bayern Munich last Sunday after Joshua Guilavogui salvaged a point in a 2-2 draw against newly promoted Werder Bremen on the first match day.
The Croatian, who led them to the league title in 2018–19, is intimately familiar with the qualities that the defending champions possess, particularly after Sadio Mane successfully complemented Julian Nagelsmann’s tactical adaptability in the early weeks of the season.
Leipzig may have thought they might mount a title push this season after spending £50 million on Timo Werner, David Raum, and Xaver Schlager this summer, but their season has not gotten off to the best start.
Last weekend, Werner made his second debut against FC Koln. The former Chelsea striker got his Leipzig career back on track when his speculative shot from 25 yards managed to sneak through Marvin Schwabe’s body and find the back of the net.
But after Bundesliga Player of the Year Christopher Nkunku, who received his honor before the game, lost a great opportunity to extend his team’s lead, Koln moved right up the other end and equalized when Florian Kainz’s precise low shot found Florian Dietz at the back post.
RB Leipzig Vs Wolfsburg Team News
- RB Leipzig
While Szoboszlai will serve a two-match suspension after being dismissed last weekend, Leipzig will be missing Youssouf Poulsen (thigh) and Lukas Klostermann (ankle).
Despite the Croatian’s unfortunate own goal against Koln, Gvardiol should start in place of Marcel Halstenberg in defense. Kevin Kampl is likely to enter the lineup to play alongside Benjamin Henrichs in a deep-lying midfielder position.
Jonas Wind and Yannick Gerhardt are expected to remain out for Wolfsburg due to hamstring and ligament injuries, respectively, with Kovac considering substitutions in the final third.
The former Croatian defender may be persuaded to start Max Kruse despite only using the dynamic attacker as a substitute in his first two league games after playing three central midfielders against Bayern Munich.
To give natural width on one flank, Josip Brekalo might take the place of Omar Marmoush, while Guilavogui might return to the bench.
