The stats behind our Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg predictions:

  • Bayer Leverkusen have kept a clean sheet in four of their past six league games.
  • Bayer Leverkusen have scored at least twice in 10 of their 12 home league games this season.
  • Patrik Schick has scored seven goals in 758 minutes across all competitions this season.

Can Bayer Leverkusen’s incredible run end bizarre streak?

With 10 games left to play in the Bundesliga season, Bayer Leverkusen will be hoping to maintain their 10-point lead over Bayern Munich. Xabi Alonso’s side have won 20 of their 24 league games this season, drawing four. Of course, what’s more remarkable is that they are 35 games unbeaten across all competitions.

That run almost ended in midweek but for a very late equaliser against Qarabag in the Europa League last 16 from Patrik Shick. But now attention must quickly turn to the Bundesliga. Since a goalless draw with Borussia Monchengladbach, Leverkusen have won their past five, including a 3-0 win over Bayern Munich. During that time, the defending champions have lost two and drawn one, falling away massively.

It means Leverkusen are seven wins away from the Bundesliga title. But they’ll need to beat a strange streak in order to reduce that to six. None of the last 15 Bundesliga matches between Leverkusen and Wolfsburg have ended with a home win, since Leverkusen won in April 2016. It’s the second-longest such run in the history of the Bundesliga, with Koln vs Stuttgart (19 between 2001 and 2016) having more matches without a home victory.

Wolfsburg will be hoping to keep that run going to aid their own season, stopping the rot. The visitors are winless in their past nine games in the Bundesliga. They have also failed to win their first seven in the second half of the season for the first time in Bundesliga history. It leaves them 13th, still seven points above the relegation play-off spot, but Wolfsburg will be wary.

Bayer Leverkusen proved in midweek that they may just be unbeatable. Even when they’re staring defeat in the face, they somehow find a way to scrape through. It’s the mark of a great team, and Wolfsburg don’t look like putting up much resistance. Wolfsburg are winless in their past nine in the Bundesliga game, including the first seven in the second half of the season.
