Wolfsburg met the expectations last time out against Hertha in Berlin when they recorded a close 1:2 victory, showing better concentration at the finishing compared to their opponent.
After a goalless first part, the guests conceded first in the 60th minute from the penalty, but kept their focus and responded in the best way possible, scoring two over Baku in the 74th and Nmecha in the 88th minute, thus recording their second consecutive victory since the begging of the new season in Bundesliga.
Left-back Otavio is still injured, as well as full-back William, forward Bialek and midfielder Vranckx, all without playing so far. Doubtful is offensive Weghorst (2/1).
Leipzig made quite an appearance in their last match at home against Stuttgart when they hammered them with a convincing 4:0 victory.
They scored their first one in the 36th minute, but they saved their best for the second part when they added three more to the scoreline, redeeming themselves for a setback in the first round when they suffered a surprising defeat against Mainz.
The guests miss defensive Halstenberg, left-back Saracchi since the start of the season. Left-back Angelino and defensive Henrichs are doubtful for now.
Both look quite confident now
After doing a good job in their previous matches, both squads are certainly coming to this one with a positive atmosphere among the players. For me, it is very difficult to predict the outcome of this clash, but I am positive that it will be as interesting as it gets, with each of them being hungry to continue in a positive manner.
