Wolfsburg v Manchester United Preview, Champions League, Group B, Tuesday 8th December 2015

Wolfsburg head into this game currently leading the way at the top of the group b table and know that a point from this game on Tuesday night against Manchester United would be enough to send them through as the group winners if PSV fail to beat CSKA Moscow by more than 3 goals and that should provide the players with more than enough incentive to get the job done in front of their home fans in this one.

Manchester United head into the game currently placed in second position of the group, but will be fully aware that failure to win this game on Tuesday night could see them eliminated from the tournament and dumped into the Europa League and with that in mind it will be interesting to see what team and formation that the United manager will decide to go with for this game.

Wolfsburg Team News:

The hosts have no fresh injury problems for this game and will be boosted by the return of Luiz Gustavo, Julian Draxler and Robin Knoche who have all now recovered from respective injury related problems.

Max Kruse and Bas Dost will lead the attack up front for the hosts and will provide the United defence with plenty to do as the pair go in search of more goals to add to their already impressive partnership.

Manchester United Team News:

The visitors have a number of casualties for this game and will be without the services of Wayne Rooney, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw and Phil Jones as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

This means that Anthony Martial will lead the attack up front with support in beind likely to be provided by either Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young or Memphis Depay.

Wolfsburg v Manchester United Head to Head Statistics:

Tuesday night’s game from the Volkswagen Arena will become only the fourth meeting between the two clubs over the years. Wolfsburg have failed to win any of those matches as Manchester United have won them all and that surely will be a statistic that the Wolfsburg players will no doubt be thinking of through out this game.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

10 Goals have been scored in the previous 3 matches played between the two clubs over the years, which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.33.

4 of those Goals have came in the only other game played between the two clubs at the Volkswagen Stadium and this generates us an average goals per game statistic of exactly 4.00.

Looking at both sets of data above, it does seem to suggest that we should see between two or three goals scored in this game on Tuesday night.

Wolfsburg only need a draw to guarantee their progression to the round of the competition and with home advantage where they have a formidable record, it should come as no suprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts as the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price available of 11/8 with Coral – Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets For New Customers.

The Draw is currently a best price of 5/2 with BetVictor – Receive £50 Free Bets for New Customers and does look a sensible cover option here as two of the last three matches between the two clubs have finished all square.

Manchester United have to win this game if they are make sure they proceed to the next round of the tournament, but the online bookmakers don’t see this happening as they have the visitors a current best price avaialble of 9/4 with BetVictor – Receive £50 Free Bets for New Customers which does look a bit overpriced considering they have won all three previous matches against their hosts.

Wolfsburg v Manchester United Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Wolfsburg suffered a rare defeat at home over the weekend against Borussia Dortmund and that will surely have had a negative effect on the players confidence as they prepare for this important match.

Manchester United have to win the game to make sure they proceed in the tournament and I would expect the visitors to come out of the starting blocks much the quicker of the two sides in search for an early goal, as this would then force Wolfsburg to attack further up the field as they would need to score to stay in the tournament if PSV win their final match of the group, so I am expecting this game to see at least a couple of goals scored.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as the average goals per game statistics are strongly indicating that this game should see at least two or three goals scored.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Wolfsburg Striker Bas Dost to open up the goal scoring of the game for his side as he is the current top goal scorer in the league for his club and looks the more likely to fire his team in front.
