A good start under Bruno Labbadia has festered optimism with Die Wölfe having already upstaged Leverkusen and Schalke
Looking into one’s crystal ball a fortnight ago, it would have been no surprise to learn that following the meeting between Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg on the Bundesliga’s second weekend, one team would have six points in the bag, while the other would be waiting to get off the mark and preparing to spend the international break doing a spot of soul-searching. If you’d have seen Wolfsburg being the former and Leverkusen the latter, you might have been tempted to give the ball an extra polish.
It may be just two games in but you can forgive those from Lower Saxony for feeling a touch giddy. Going into the campaign with modest aims of simply avoiding the previous two seasons’ scrapes with the relegation/promotion play-off, Bruno Labbadia’s side are sitting pretty after following up victory over Schalke with a convincing win in Leverkusen. “Julian Nagelsmann’s tip for the title,” as Wolfsburger Allgemeine gleefully billed them.
