Our football match prediction:
Wolfsburg have been playing below expectations in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign. Summer signing Mario Gomez has yet to open his goal-scoring account and other star players Julian Draxler and Jakub Blaszczykowski have been struggling in front of goal as well. The Wolves have recorded no more than one victory in the league this term and, no doubt, they will leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football match against Leipzig. The newcomers have been producing fine performances in the German top flight this season and the Red Bulls will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run in the national championship when they face Wolfsburg at Volkswagen Arena on Sunday. However, the hosts want this win more than the visitors and we predict that the Wolves will emerge triumphant in their fourth home game of the season. When the two teams met in the German Cup last year Wolfsburg recorded a 2-0 win over Leipzig.
