Both teams come into the Saturday fixture looking to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga after both dropping points the last time they were in action.

Second-place RB Leipzig went down 3-1 at home to Borussia Dortmund whilst the hosts Wolfsburg were held to a 2-2 draw on the road by Union Berlin.

Wolfsburg are in sixth place with 25 points, six behind their opponents as they seek to reduce the point difference with victory on Saturday.

Both league meetings between Wolfsburg and RB Leipzig ended as draws last season, so with the form his side have displayed so far this season, Oliver Glasner may be urging his players to go one better on Saturday.

If they are to win their first ever Bundesliga title, RB Leipzig can surely not afford to lose any ground on Bayern, even with the Bavarians looking extremely vulnerable defensively at present.
