A DFB Pokal last-16 clash between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg that takes place at the Red Bull Arena sees the hosts chasing the third consecutive triumph across all competitions.
Although they come into this meeting after a 1-0 home loss to Borussia Dortmund, the Bulls are still one of the best home sides in the German top flight, having picked up nine wins in 15 competitive home games this season (W9, D4, L2). Ahead of this encounter, Ralf Ragnick’s men have secured two successive Bundesliga triumphs, scoring seven goals while keeping a clean sheet in the process. Another encouraging fact for the hosts is that they’ve scored over 2.5 goals per match three times in the previous five competitive clashes, failing to find the back of the net on two occasions though. Impressive defensive displays have seen Leipzig restricting their rivals to a maximum of one goal per match ten times in their last 11 home outings across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet seven times in the sequence.
On the other hand, the visitors have gone from a six-game lossless streak (W5, D1) to two consecutive defeats. However, the Wolves have managed to bounce back in their last Bundesliga fixture, clinching a narrow 1-0 away victory over Hertha Berlin. Wolfsburg’s promising run has been closely related to their outstanding performance in the final third that has seen the score over 1.5 goals per match in five successive Bundesliga clashes. However, Bruno Labbadia’s players have scored just two goals in their last three games, which could be their principal problem in this encounter considering Leipzig’s defensive outputs at the Red Bull Arena. Still, the fact that Wolfsburg kept five clean sheets in the previous seven competitive meetings is the one thing that can console Labbadia.
