Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at Volkswagen Arena pits together Wolfsburg and Leipzig, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Wolves do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing four of their last five league matches, while sharing the spoils with Werder Bremen. Defender Maxence Lacroix is back from suspension, while all Patrick Wimmer, Lukas Nmecha, and Felix Lange remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Meanwhile, the Red Bulls quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Mainz, with the team beating Freiburg 3-1 in front of home fans. Leipzig are more of a team than Wolfsburg and seeing that the hosts suffered a dip in form, away triumph should be considered. Christoph Baumgartner is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league fixture, while all Peter Gulacsi, Dani Olmo, Willi Orban, and El Chadaille Bitshiabu continue to miss out with injuries, speaking of the away team.
Highlighted Player (Yussuf Poulsen):
Yussuf Poulsen is a Danish footballer who started his youth career at BK Skjold. At the age of 14 he joined Lyngby and he made his debut for the first team on 4 December, 2011. He came as a substitute in a match against Horsens after 84 minutes, substituting Mathias Tauber. However, he made no more than five league appearances for Lyngby in the 2011/2012 season.
Despite the fact that Lyngby dropped to Denmark 1st Division, Poulsen did not leave the club in the summer transfer window and it has to be noted that he made 30 appearances for the Vikings in the 2012/2013 campaign. On 4 July, 2013 he signed a deal with Leipzig and he has been playing for the German outfit ever since.
The 193-cm-tall attacker is capable of playing as both right and left winger. Poulsen’s father is Tanzanian, but he decided to represent the Danish national team. He made his debut for the senior team against Albania on 11 October, 2014. Poulsen scored his first ever goal for Denmark in a 2-0 win over Serbia on June 13, 2015.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsburg):
Wolfsburg are a German football club founded in the aftermath of the World War II (1945). Die Wolfe (The Wolves) wear green and white shirts and they play their home games at Volkswagen Arena. The capacity of the stadium is 30,000 and it was opened on 13 December, 2002.
It is well known that German car manufacturer Volkswagen are the club’s main sponsors. Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga trophy in 2009 and the likes of Edin Dzeko, Grafite and Zvjezdan Misimovic were part of the club’s golden generation.
You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football.
