Desperate to shore up their spot in the Champions League chase, RB Leipzig will welcome Wolfsburg to the Red Bull Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with hosts, while RB Leipzig might have suffered Champions League heartbreak last month as they suffered a 2-1 aggregate defeat at the hands of Spanish giants Real Madrid, Marco Rose’s men have come roaring back in some style. Last seen putting in another rampant display as they stormed their way to a 4-1 romp away at Freiburg, the Red Bulls are sat in the driving seat to punch another lucrative top-four finish this season. Heading into March’s international break with a 5-1 victory against Koln, the former Borussia Dortmund boss has seen his squad muster 13 points from their previous five Bundesliga appearances. Continuing on what has been a stunning free-scoring flurry in the final third, attacking talisman Lois Openda could have a leading role to play here. Bagging a brace against Freiburg last week and heavily linked with a potential Premier League switch this summer, the Belgium international has recorded 10 goals across all competitions since opening the New Year.

As for the visitors, putting in another worrying performance last weekend as they slumped to a 3-1 drumming at home against Borussia Monchengladbach, Wolfsburg have shown some real issues on either side of March’s international break. Heading into the fortnight interval with another infamous 3-1 defeat at the hands of Augsburg, Ralph Hasenhuttl already has plenty of pressure on his shoulders. Still looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap and facing another heavyweight challenge here, the former Southampton boss has seen his squad lose four of their previous five Bundesliga appearances. With their extended crisis underlined by a 3-2 defeat against Stuttgart last month, Wolfsburg have remarkably collected just a single win from any of their previous 13 straight showdowns – a rut that stems all the way back to December 16th. Recording just a single Bundesliga clean sheet since opening the New Year, Hasenhuttl’s downbeat squad are rightfully tipped as a landslide underdog this weekend.
