Wolfsburg vs. Bayern Munich Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Bayern Munich concludes their 2023 schedule with an away match against mid-table Wolfsburg on Wednesday evening as the Bundesliga heads into a festive break.

While Bayern Munich can’t catch the league leaders Bayer Leverkusen, they aim to finish the year with a third consecutive win.

On the other hand, Wolfsburg, who recently ended a troubling string of defeats, looks to challenge the reigning champions.

Match Preview

Bayern Munich responded to their loss against Eintracht Frankfurt with a commanding win against Stuttgart. They secured second place before the break, now three points ahead of RB Leipzig, after Harry Kane’s 20th goal this season helped secure a win.

Having topped their Champions League group and drawn against Lazio in the last 16, Bayern aims to reduce the gap to Leverkusen by securing a win against Wolfsburg.

Despite a recent win against Darmstadt, Wolfsburg faces a historical challenge against Bayern Munich. Their last league victory against Bayern dates back to January 2015.

The team’s mid-table position and early exit from the cup have marked a somewhat underwhelming season.
