After narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification last season, Bayer Leverkusen look to stun critics by improving without talisman Kai Havertz. His £72m move to Chelsea was confirmed earlier this month, while Kevin Volland departed for Monaco (£14m) two days earlier.

Wolfsburg by contrast, face a quick turnaround after their successful Europa League exertions on Thursday in Albania. Can either side get the new campaign off to a flying start this weekend? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips

There's plenty of important team news for both sides which may impact how this match unfolds.

Wolfsburg's key midfielder Josuha Guilavogui misses out through suspension after his sending off against Bayern on the final day last season carries over. Maximilian Arnold is doubtful after coming off injured on Thursday night, while Kevin Mbabu (knee) and fellow defender Marin Pongracic (glandular fever) are also sidelined.

It means head coach Oliver Glasner has difficult decisions ahead before settling on his best starting eleven, as competition for places remains fierce despite their current injury woes.

As for Leverkusen, Peter Bosz and his players will fancy their chances here. Having agreed a £23.9m deal with Roma for Patrik Schick, B04 hope the Czech international gets off to a good start this weekend.

The 24-year-old missed two big chances but still scored in their 7-0 DFB-Pokal rout against Eintracht Norderstedt last week off the bench. With creative minds like Kerem Demirbay, Nadiem Amiri and wonderkid Florian Wirtz to weave their magic, he should relish the opportunity like last year's loan spell with rivals Leipzig.

The aforementioned trio should all start, but watch how Leverkusen are tested as the post-Havertz era begins.

Wolfsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Correct Score Predictions

Although only separated by two places, there was a 14-point gap between Leverkusen and Wolfsburg last term. Wolfsburg lead the H2H record (W9, 6L, 3D) but have regressed recently. After four successive victories (2014-15), their 4-1 win in May was only their second in their last nine matches. This has goals written all over.
