The club Rasenballsport Leipzig, founded in 2009, is taking part in the DFB Cup for the seventh time this season. So far, the Saxons have never reached the quarterfinals. 2014/2015 were the “Red Bulls” ever in the round of 16, but then failed against a backdrop of home against VfL. The story may be repeated on Wednesday evening, because once again both teams face each other in the round of 16 in the German club cup. But this time the omens are completely different. RB Leipzig is clearly favored against Wolfsburg according to the odds, which is due to the strong home record of the Rangnick-Elf. On the other hand, on the performances shown in the past two matches.
RB Leipzig vs Wolfsburg Football Prediction of the Day
In Dusseldorf and in Hanover, the fourth celebrated sovereign away wins and convinced by early forchecking, a high aggressiveness in the duels and much urge forward. Whether the guests from the Autostadt have something to oppose, must be doubted, because footballing revealed the team of Bruno Labbadia in the three rounds back lots of air up. Nevertheless, the balance of VfL in the foreign is worth all honor, which should be considered between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg in a possible forecast. Nevertheless, the fair city dwellers should have the quality and self-confidence to finally break the spell and move into the quarter-finals for the first time. We expect a sovereign appearance of the home side and would therefore in the encounter RB Leipzig vs.. Wolfsburg decide for a tip that RBL leads already at half-time and leaves at the end of the place as a winner (HT 1 / FT 1).
RB Leipzig – Statistics & Current Form
After Rasenballsport Leipzig in the UEFA Europa League surprisingly canceled the sails in the preliminary round, the Saxons can now pay their attention exclusively to the national competitions. So far, this succeeds in the Bundesliga with success. Four of the last six matches in the highest German league have made the “Red Bulls” victorious. Only at Bayern Munich and the second half of the season at home against Borussia Dortmund hailed tight 0: 1 defeats in which the charges of Ralf Rangnick by no means much worse than the opponent. In the classification, this positive run ensured that the Messestädter not only defended the fourth place, but also could extend the lead on Eintracht Frankfurt (5th) to five or to VfL Wolfsburg (6th) on six counters. As things stand, Julian Nagelsmann can look forward to a fix qualification for the UEFA Champions League. After the recent victories in Dusseldorf (4: 0) and in Hannover (3: 0), in which the tempo offensive was convincing, the self-confidence suddenly skyrocketed and the chances to land a success in the DFB Pokal , also increased.
In front of a home crowd, the Leipzigers are extremely difficult to beat. The aforementioned 0: 1 just three weeks ago against Borussia Dortmund was the first and so far only bankruptcy in front of their own fans. There were also seven wins and two points. Particularly interesting is the fact that in all seven home successes, the “Red Bulls” already led at halftime. In other words, in all seven matches the corresponding bets on the HT 1 / FT 1 would have gone through. In this respect, we have found a solid statistical basis to force again on Wednesday evening between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg the tip on halftime / final score RBL. In addition, it should be stated that the Rangnick-Elf with their raid-like game against the ball, especially in the initial phase of a match, the opponent can put so much pressure that individual errors, for example, in the game structure, provoked. Not a single Bundesliga scored in the first half this season more than the fourth-placed from the central city (20 goals). Alone in the first 15 minutes, Timo Werner and Co. marked no less than nine goals. For this reason, the prediction between RB Leipzig and Wolfsburg is that the first round will once again go to the Retortverein. Dayot Upamecano and the two newcomers Haidara and Smith-Rowe are injured due to injury. The stakes of Gulacsi and Werner, however, are still in the dump.
Expected formation of RB Leipzig:
Gulacsi – Klostermann, Konaté, Orban, Halstenberg – T. Adams, Demme – Sabitzer, Laimer – Y. Poulsen, Matheus Cunha
Last matches of RB Leipzig:
- 01.02.2019 – Hannover vs. RB Leipzig 0: 3 (Bundesliga)

Wolfsburg – Statistics & Current Form
If we were not in the middle of winter, the term “tired summer kick” on the weekend between Hertha BSC and VfL Wolfsburg would have their justification. Football-wise, the clubs met at a particularly good level, but this was also due to the bad space and cold weather conditions. Many bad passes, few offense actions and finally only one goal were symbolic of a weak Bundesliga match. However, the Lower Saxony should hardly disturb this today, because thanks to the hit by Wout Weghorst they left the Berlin Olympic Stadium with three points. How important this first success was is shown by a look at the classification. In the event of a defeat, the “wolves” could have slipped to rank nine. Bruno Labbadia’s team, for example, continues to dream of a (surprising) return to international business.
The fact is that on Wednesday in the second round of the DFB Cup, an increase in performance will be required to make the leap into the round of the last eight. Both at Schalke (1: 2), as well as at home against Leverkusen (0: 3) it was already hailing defeats in this competitive year. Convince the car drivers could thus not in the 270 completed minutes at all. Another argument, which justifies the odds on the home team in the encounter RB Leipzig against Wolfsburg, is the quite flawed development of the Labbadia-Elf. The football teacher wants to dub with short passports the first pressing line of the opponent, in order to then get into overpayment situations in the opponent half. Most recently, defenders not well known for their technical savvy, such as Knoche, Brooks, Roussillon, or Willian, kept dropping stats that could be fatal to RB Leipzig. Although VfL plays in a foreign country a strong season and with six wins, a draw and only two failures currently even the third strongest away team in the Bundesliga, the Lower Saxony were in two of the three defeats mentioned already at half-time behind. Camacho and Azzaoui fail in the long run. But heavier weighs the failure of Daniel Ginczek, which is hard to compensate.
Expected formation of Wolfsburg:
Casteels – Verhaegh, Knoche, Brooks, Roussillon – Arnold – Gerhardt, Rexhbecaj – Malli – Brekalo, Weghorst
Last matches of Wolfsburg:
- 02.02.2019 – Hertha Vs. Wolfsburg 0: 1 (Bundesliga)
- 26.01.2019 – Wolfsburg vs. Leverkusen 0: 3 (Bundesliga)
- 20.01.2019 – Schalke Vs. Wolfsburg 2: 1 (Bundesliga)
- 12.01.2019 – Wolfsburg vs. HNK Rijeka 3: 0 (Friendly Match)
- 06.01.2019 – Wolfsburg vs. Vitesse Arnhem 3: 0 (friendly)
