Bayer Leverkusen move back to the top of the Bundesliga

Bayer Leverkusen 2 – Wolfsburg 0 (Bundesliga, October 31, 2008) Bayer’s breakthrough came when Tranquillo Barnetta struck low from the edge of the area and beat the keeper at his near post. Stefan Kiessling headed the second a few minutes later. It was Leverkusen’s fourth successive 2-0 victory in the Bundesliga and it was enough to leapfrog them above Hoffenheim, who host Karlsruhe on Saturday.
