Next Sunday at 5:30pm GMT, on matchday 2 of the Bundesliga, we will see Bayern play Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.

Leaders Bayern are currently seven places higher than their opponents Wolfsburg, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and eighth positions respectively.

Bayern Munich will seek to retain their position at the top of the table, this fixture is no exception

Bayern will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt at Commerzbank Arena. Julian Nagelsmann’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Also, Bayern have enjoyed excellent form all season. They are worthy of their place within the Champion’s League zone. They are the current League leaders with three points, that is, 1 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws having won one game.

The ultimate prize this season will be for Bayern Munich to finish top of the Bundesliga and secure automatic qualification for the Champion’s League. However, they must play each game as it comes and secure the points, if that is to be achieved.

Julian Nagelsmann could be missing up to four of their players through injury or illness for the game on Sunday.

Wolfsburg have so far accrued one point in this season of the Bundesliga

Having dropped a total of four points in their past two games, Niko Kovac won’t be devastated by those results, but will be eager to secure a consistent run of form.

Also, Wolfsburg have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. With one point (0W, 0L and 1D), they are established in eighth position in the League having drawn one game.

Wolfsburg will have 4 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Wolfsburg, in terms of goals scored (2). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Lukas Nmecha (1), Josuha Guilavogui (1), and Koen Casteels. Wolfsburg have shown a very poor defensive display, having conceded two goals in their previous matches.

Wolfsburg are likely to be missing three of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.
