Bayer Leverkusen welcome Wolfsburg to the BayArena with plenty to ponder about. Leverkusen have made a poor start to the season as expected and manager Heiko Herrlich has plenty to think about ahead of this match. Wolfsburg have been able to bring in some valuable players during the summer and the hopes are high around the fallen giants. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football betsand betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bayer Leverkusen came up with a timid display that resulted in a 2-0 defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach during the weekend. The club had to rely on a penalty in order to get past CfR Pforzheim in the first round of the DFB Pokal.
Wolfsburg were able to register a 2-1 win over Schalke in the opening game of the season. This was an impressive performance from Wolfsburg, who also won their DFB Pokal first-round game in style.
Leverkusen were able to secure a 2-1 win over Wolfsburg in the recent encounter. However, the last meeting at BayArena produced a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a tough statement.

Wolfsburg are given attractive odds of 5.00 to win the match, but Leverkusen are at a much shorter 1.60. A more sensible option would be to back a stalemate considering that these two teams should be evenly matched in this contest. Leverkusen are expected to go through a difficult 2018-19 campaign. Even though Wolfsburg have fallen from their peak, there are signs of resurgence from the fallen giants. The strong set of results in the first two games of the campaign is likely to help them build confidence, but they have traditionally struggled at the BayArena with just one win in six. Our preview would back a draw.

Bayer Leverkusen win odds: 1.60
Wolfsburg win odds: 5.00
Correct Score odds

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Most of the games between Leverkusen and Wolfsburg have brought huge amount of entertainment. In fact, the last five meetings at the BayArena have produced an aggregate total of 15-11. Yet, this match can stick away from the norm. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.
