Wolfsburg v Lille Match Preview
Wolfsburg are currently at the bottom of their Group but a win over the French side would give them a great chance to move into second. Group G has been a very tightly fought one this time around and such have the results been that Wolfsburg cannot qualify for the Europa League.
Florian Kohfeldt’s men made a great start to the season but seem to have unraveled in the last couple of months. Quite recently, they lost 2-0 to Seville and back home in the Bundesliga, they have lost back to back encounters with Borussia Dortmund and Mainz.
Lille have started to find their feet under Jocelyn Gourvennec and are currently on top of Group G. with wins of RB Salzburg and Seville in the bag, Les Dogues have every chance of reaching the next round of the competition. Another win will definitely send them through to the next round.
