Shortly before the start of the game, we are still dedicated to the impartial. Manuel Grafe heads the match in Wolfsburg. A very experienced referee.
Also with the guests from Leverkusen there are two changes compared to the previous week. Aranguiz replaces Baumgartlinger, Amiri comes for Alario. So Volland moves back to the storm center.
VfL coach Oliver Glasner makes two changes in comparison to the 0: 3 defeat in Dortmund. In the storm, Felix Klaus takes preference over Nmecha. In addition, Brooks is on the bench, playing for him Robin Knoche.
In the week before, the team of coach Bosz against Gladbach (1: 2) gave a very good performance. But individual defensive errors as well as a better chance evaluation on the part of the Gladbacher destroyed a point profit. After all, you could celebrate in the premier class after a long time again a threesome. Nevertheless, the opportunity utilization must be better.
On the other hand comes a talented team from Leverkusen, but is in a earnings crisis. Since the 6th matchday the Rhinelander wait for a success in the Bundesliga. Although their opponents were Leipzig, Frankfurt, Bremen and Gladbach, two points from four games are definitely not enough for the Werkself.
Whether Anthony Brooks can or can help? The center-back was surprisingly eliminated from the squad for the game against Gent and saw the defeat of his team only from the stands. The 26-year-old American is currently emblematic of the situation in Wolfsburg. At the beginning of the season still set and very strong, he is currently following the music. At least he is sitting on the bench today.
The Lower Saxony is currently not running around. Three defeats in a row including the 1: 6 against RB Leipzig in the Cup have left their mark. The team of Oliver Glasner has lost his sovereignty and is currently completely beside the track. Six competitive games without a victory make the outstanding start to the season forgotten. The wolves have to quickly get the turn again.
Both clubs played during the week in European Cup. While Wolfsburg suffered a third straight defeat by beating KAA Gent 3-1, Bayer 04 defeated Atletico Madrid 2-1 at home to make it a historic day in the premier class. For the first time since 2014, all four German clubs have won one matchday.

The wolves play with the following Elf: Pervan – Tisserand, Bruma, Knoche – William, Guilavogui, Arnold, Roussillon – Joao Victor, Weghorst, Klaus.
