Wolfsburg v Inter Milan Preview, Europa League, Last 16 1st Leg, Thursday 12th March 2015.

Undoubtedly not the result Wolfsburg would of been hoping for on Saturday when they lost 1 – 0 away from home to Augsburg. Not only would it of harmed their chances of catching leaders Bayern Munich, but it could also effect confidence going into their Europa League encounter with Italian side Inter Milan. Regarding the Bundesliga however, we do know Wolfsburg are playing far above expectations this season and even though they did drop points, the reality of them catching and overtaking Bayern Munich to win the league are slim to impossible. In Europe though we do see them easily deserving a chance to progress into the last eight, as Inter Milan are far from the legendary team in the past, and bookmakers alike are favouring the Germans to progress either way.

Inter Milan in the Serie A are struggling mid table in ninth although they have improved and won three league games in their last five, leaving the other two for a loss and draw. Napoli who are always around the top four were taken to a 2 – 2 draw at the weekend by Inter Milan, which has come down to a well earned result. A few more wins by the team could see them climb the table somewhat, of course that will depend on other teams results. As for Europe we do see Inter Milan doing well so far, although they are not seen as having much chance against Wolfsburg in Germany on Thursday night. However if they do manage to score a goal and grab a draw they will most certainly be favourites to progress into the next round when it comes down to the 2nd Leg in Italy.

Wolfsburg Team News:

As already mentioned, we do see Wolfsburg step up the pace once again like in the past, and become a very tough side to beat in the Bundesliga. This could be down to many of the players scoring freely right now, and we currently see Dutch star Bas Dost as the clubs top scorer with thirteen Bundesliga goals, as well as three other goals in cup and European competitions. On loan midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is so far clubs joint top scorer in the Europa League, along side Rodriguez with both scoring three each.

Inter Milan Team News:

Inter Milan are heavily relying on striker Mauro Icardi for goals right now, with the Argentine international having so far scored fifteen Serie A goals in twenty five appearances. The twenty five year old also has one Coppa Italia goal as well as four Europa League efforts making him easily the clubs top scorer by far. Defender D’Ambrosio and midfielder Kovacic are close behind having both scored three European goals.

Wolfsburg v Inter Milan Head to Head Statistics:

Sadly we do not have any records of these two clubs having ever played each other, so this would be an exciting pair of games with the two meeting in the Europa League last 16. Wolfsburg are the clear favourites to win on Thursday night, and depending on the result we could also see an upset in Italy when the two meet there.

Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are by far the best team in form right now with them currently sitting healthily in second place behind Bayern Munich. Where as Inter Milan have struggled in recent years and now only sit in ninth. However their form has improved recently so we could see them climb the Serie A table over the remaining months of the season.

Wolfsburg v Inter Milan Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Europa League action on Thursday night comes to us live on ITV4 High Definition and features two historic sides. We see Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, coming up against Italian legends Inter Milan in what looks set to be a very exciting fixture with the two clubs facing each other for the first time. We see the Germans as the solid favourites to win this first leg although they will be wanting a good solid result to take to Italy when the two meet again for the 2nd leg.

Wolfsburg are the side in far better form here even though they did lose 1 – 0 to Augsburg at the weekend. Although they are not seen as having much chance of catching Bayern Munich it would still of gone against their chances of doing so. Also on top of that could of damaged the high confidence the players are currently playing with. Inter Milan as already mentioned in previous previews, are far from the club they were in the past. Although we have seen their form improve in recent weeks with them now winning three and drawing once in their last five Serie A appearances.

My predictions for Thursday nights game will see Wolfsburg win the game in some fashion, with the other favouring more towards a draw. Although that I am still thinking about as I type. Anyway for the first lets go for a an Andre Schurrle goal and Wolfsburg win to start with. The ex Chelsea man I rate very highly and am extremely surprised to see him let go by Jose Mourinho. For the next lets go for both teams to score and for the game to end as a draw. This would of course depend on how both teams approach the game, I do feel Inter Milan would need to play exceptionally well while Wolfsburg fail to wake up from the get go.
