Bayern Munich now look to have turned the corner after a string of poor performances that threatened to end interim coach-Hans Deiter Flick’s spell in charge.
After losing twice on the trot, the Bavarians have now won all of their last three games in all competitions.
Two of those games have come in the League, walloping Werder Bremen 6-1 and then winning 3-1 at Freiburg on Wednesday.
After three league games without finding the back of the net, Robert Lewandowski has now scored in each of his last two and looks to have moved on from his surprising drought.
Along with Serge Gnabry and the in-form Philip Coutinho, Bayern will be fancying their chances of making it 3 wins on the trot when they face Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon.
However, they will be without midfielder Thiago Alcantara who is now suspended following accumulation of bookings. He joins Niklas Sule, Lucas Hernandez, Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman as the absentees for Bayern.
A win for Bayern will see them maintain third spot after Dortmund lost 2-1 to Hoffenheim on Friday night. The Bavarians have 30 points, four behind the top two of RB Leipzig and Borussia Monchengladbach and level with Dortmund.
Wolfsburg will however pose a few questions for Bayern come game time.
After losing two in a row, the Wolves have now gone three minus defeat in all competitions.
The are coming off spirited 1-1 draw at home to Schalke in mid week, a result that has now seen them collect four points in two games.
Wolfsburg are not gunning for the title but eyeing at least a spot in the Europa League and are very much in the mix for that.
Currently, they sit 9th with 24 points, three off the last Europa League spot.
A win at Bayern coupled with other results going their way, could see Wolfsburg head into the winter break in 6th spot.
Wolfburg are expected to be without Ahmed Mamhedi, Klinger and Ignacio Camacho who are all nursing injury.
Bayern have won all their last three games against Wolfsburg and the Bavarians have not lost to the Wolves since January 2015.
As Bayern face Wolfsburg at home, Leipzig will also be in their own back-yard as they welcome Augsburg at the Red Bull Arena.
Leipzig’s 3-3 draw away to Dortmund on Wednesday ended a run of six consecutive league wins.
However, Julien Nagglesman and his side will not be too concerned as they had to come from behind twice to walk away from the Signal Induna Park with a point.
Currently on 34 points, Leipzig are league joint-toppers along with Gladbach and with the latter in action later, it is a chance for Nagglesman’s side to move clear temporarily.
Willy Orban, Kevin Kampl and Konate are still nursing injuries for the home side but with Timo Werner scoring at will, they will not be too concerned.
For the visitors-Augsburg, they are one of the league’s most in-form side currently.
They have won five of their past six games and all their last three.
They defeated Fortuna Dusseldorf 3-0 mid-week and now climb into 9th with 24 points.
The major concern for them is that they are missing several key players on Saturday, some of whom are suspended and others injured.
Both of last season’s meetings between the two sides ended in 0-0 draws. Augsburg have never defeated Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena in the Bundesliga.
The other interesting fixtures will see Gladbach away to Hertha Berlin on Saturday, Mainz host Leverkusen while Frankfurt will be away to Paderbon on Sunday.
