RB Leipzig’s terrific 3-2 comeback win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday was their fifth straight victory in the league, keeping their hunt for a first-ever league title alive. They are still in second place but they have made up significant ground on league leaders Bayern Munich with the gap between them down to just couple of points with so much of the season left to play.
Julian Nagelsmann’s men found themselves down 2-0 after just 20 minutes and at the half but they roared back in the second half with goals from Nkuku, Poulsen and a dramatic injury-time winner from Alexander Sorloth to secure three crucial points.
This balanced attacking output is what has kept them going since the departure of Timo Werner at the end of last season. Despite their slip up against Liverpool in the Champions League, confidence is at a high in the squad. Nagelsmann is expected to put out a strong lineup here.
Wolfsburg are having a season to remember. They are third place in the league following their 2-0 triumph over Hertha Berlin on Saturday.
The Wolves boast of the longest active unbeaten streak in the league, having gone undefeated in their last eight straight league matches since losing 2-1 to Dortmund at the start of the year.
Their impressive run has been built on the back of their rock-solid defence. They have only conceded 19 goals in the league all season. Ironically, the last goal they conceded was in a 2-2 draw against Leipzig in mid-January. They have since kept 8 successive clean sheets which is quite impressive!
Possible Line Ups

RB LEIPZIG VS WOLFSBURG MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING TIPS
Although Wolfsburg are heavy underdogs for this tie, their run of form and their recent head to head record against the hosts suggest that they could be a value bet here. Although Leipzig had a big win the last time they met in the cup, which was in the second round last season, their other previous four meetings in the league have all failed to yield a winner. We feel confident in backing them on the double chance @ 1.90 our initial betting prediction for this game.
Goals are likely to come at a premium in this match. Both teams boast of very good defences. In particular, Wolfsburg defence has been nothing short of spectacular in the last month or so, keeping clean sheets in 8 consecutive matches, while winning seven of these. Leipzig are also yet to concede in their cup thus far. We are fancy a tight game here particularly to start and we are going for Under 1.5 first-half goals @ 1.44 as our last shout here.
