Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Wolfsburg are running down a blind alley ahead of Saturday’s football match against Bayer Leverkusen. The Wolves suffered a 3-1 loss to Darmstadt at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run to seven games in Bundesliga. New coach Valerien Ismael is desperate to record his first win with the Volkswagen Arena outfit, but the game against star-studded Bayer Leverkusen will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Roger Schmidt’s men suffered a shocking 3-0 loss to Hoffenheim at their BayArena on Saturday and they are desperate to bounce back from the defeat. Bayer Leverkusen are after their second away win of the season and it has to be noted that they conceded exactly two goals in each of their last four matches on the road. Both teams should go for a win in Saturday’s match and we predict that fans will see a lively contest this time out.
Highlighted Player (Vieirinha):
Better known as Vieirinha, Adelino Andre Vieira de Freitas originates from Guimaraes, and it was at Vitoria Guimaraes that he spent seven years before joining FC Porto academy in 2002. Despite getting promoted to the senior side in 2005, the winger was never given a chance to impress at Estadio do Dragao and following several loan spells, he opted to sign for Greek giants PAOK.
Vieirinha clearly profited from exposure to first team football, scoring 18 goals in 78 league matches for the club. His impressive displays did not go unnoticed and Wolfsburg soon came calling. Despite arriving at the club as a right winger, the Portuguese footballer was eventually converted to right-back near the end of the 2014/2015 season and has since impressed in his new position.
After representing his country at various youth levels, Vieirinha received his first call-up to the senior squad in November 2011, but he had to wait until March 2013 to be handed his debut. The experienced footballer, nonetheless, secured his place in the 2014 World Cup squad, making one appearance at the tournament finals.
