DFB Pokal Champions Leipzig will be searching for its first win of the season as it hosts Wolfsburg for its 4th match of the ongoing Bundesliga season.
Domenico Tedesco's squad edged out Union Berlin by a single point to claim the final Champions League spot in last year’s table. The latter exacted revenge of sorts when it hosted Leipzig last weekend. Siebatcheu and Becker scored a goal each within 6 minutes of each other to give Union a 2-goal lead by halftime. Hungarian center-back Willi Orban scored a consolation goal for Leipzig in the dying embers of the game, but couldn’t prevent the visitors from dropping points in their third consecutive match.
Leipzig currently has just 2 points from 3 matches and is in the 11th spot on the points table.
Just like its opponents, Wolfsburg is also searching for its first victory of the season. After playing a 2-2 draw against a freshly promoted Werder, Wolfsburg suffered a 2-0 defeat in its second match. Last weekend, the Wolves hosted another promoted team, Schalke, and was again held to a draw, this time without any goals on the board. Playing his first season in the Bundesliga after a gap of 3 years, the newly appointed Wolfsburg coach would have hoped for a better start.
Nevertheless, with the season still in its early stages, he will be hoping for a turnaround before he faces the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt and Union Berlin in the upcoming weeks.

Bet on a Leipzig win.
In 5 of the last 9 matches access competitions, a BTTS bet would have won. Going back to the last season, Leipzig has conceded at least once in 6 of its last 7 top-flight games, including all the 3 matches it has played this season. We are therefore backing Wolfsburg to score at least once here.
Nkunku was the top scorer for Leipzig in the last season with 20 goals, and was also awarded the Player of the season award. He has already scored twice this season, and we are backing him to score again in this match.
