Wolfsburg could drag Bayer Leverkusen into the relegation battle if the visitors win at the BayArena on Sunday (kick-off 17:30CEST/16:30BST).
Tayfun Korkut’s appointment has not helped Leverkusen turn their season around just yet, and the 1-0 defeat at Hoffenheim on Matchday 25 was their third league defeat in four matches. It also left his side only four points above third-bottom Hamburg, so a repeat of the 2-1 victory the last time these two sides met earlier in the season would be extremely welcome.´
By contrast, Andries Jonker has guided his team to two wins and a draw in his first three matches in charge – the best start for a Wolfsburg manager in 14 years. Following 1-0 wins away at RB Leipzig and at home to bottom club Darmstadt, a third victory on the bounce could see the Wolves leapfrog Leverkusen in the table. Yet despite their good form, the 2009 league winners start the weekend just two points clear of the relegation play-off place.
