Having hauled in Borussia Dortmund to move level on points at the top of the table, the next step for Bayern Munich is to overtake the long-time leaders. Next in the Munich firing line are seventh placed Wolfsburg who will be looking to pick up a positive result in order to break into the European qualifying positions. Given the form Bayern are in though, that may well prove a tall order.


Bayern won the reverse of this fixture, coming away from Wolfsburg with a 3-1 success earlier in the season. Wolfsburg played well here last season though to earn a 2-2 draw on the day.


Kingsley Coman and Corentin Tolisso miss out through injury for Bayern. Wolfsburg must do without Ignacio Camacho, Daniel Ginczek and Ismail Azzaoui.


Bayern have now won eleven of their past twelve in the league in what has been a spectacular return to form. Having won only two of their first six at home, they head into this game seeking a sixth success on the spin in front of their own fans.


Unbeaten in their past five in the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg are a side playing with confidence at present and are now only four points off the Champions League positions. With seven wins from twelve on the road, they are second top of the Bundesliga away table and may just give Bayern something to think about.


Wolfsburg have scored two or more in six of their past nine on the road. They may need to do so once again if they are to pick anything up here, and the suspicion is they will come up short.




Prediction: Bayern Munich 3 - 1 Wolfsburg
