Bayer Leverkusen scored either side of the break to pip Wolfsburg to the points in October, pushing their unbeaten run against Die Wolf to four games since 2021. Wolfsburg actually haven’t lost in Leverkusen since 2016, though we expect that trend to be bucked on Sunday.

Bayer Leverkusen preview: Adli to return up front?

Victor Boniface and Arthur are still sidelined for Leverkusen while prolific wingback Jeremie Frimpong is suspended and could be a big miss on the right flank. Die Werkself have dropped point four points at home this term.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Wolfsburg prediction
Florian Wirtz is a key creative outlet for Leverkusen – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Florian Wirtz

Florian Wirtz found the net in the Europa League at Qarabag on Thursday evening and the attacking midfielder has been just as effective in the Bundesliga this term where he has scored five times and laid on ten assists for his teammates.

Wizard Wirtz to shine again

20-year-old dynamo Wirtz rarely has a poor game for Leverkusen and as the most naturally creative player in their ranks, much of Bayer’s attacking play flows through the midfielder. Wirtz only saw 30 minutes of action as a sub when Leverkusen beat Wolfsburg in October, though he should have a full game to ping passes around on Sunday.
