The Bay Arena sees Saturday action as Bayer take on Wolfsburg – 3:30pm GMT.

Thirteenth placed Wolfsburg will travel to the Bay Arena, hopeful of rampage, as they face sixteenth placed Bayer.

With the Bundesliga season well into its stride, Bayer Leverkusen have managed to gain eight points

With Bayer having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Xabi Alonso’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so six losses in 10 matches would not make this a successful season for Bayer. With eight points, they currently sit sixteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 6 losses and 2 draws having won two games, drawn two matches, and lost six meetings.

Bayer have won one game, drawn one game, and lost three games of their five League matches at home this season.

A victory for Bayer Leverkusen would put them on 11 points.

Bayer may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Wolfsburg have so far accrued 10 points in this season of the Bundesliga

Wolfsburg dropped points against B Mönchengladbach, only managing a 2-2 draw, having previously drawn 1-1 to Augsburg, so the team will want to win this game to move their season forward.

Also, Wolfsburg seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with two draws in two meetings. Now they have 2 matches won, 4 games lost and 4 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in thirteenth place, with a total of 10 points having won two meetings, drawn four matches, and lost four fixtures.

Playing away from home, Wolfsburg have won one game, drawn one game, and lost three matches.

A win in this fixture, would take Wolfsburg’s points from 10 to 13, so far this season.
