Wolfsburg vs Saint-Etienne Match Preview

leaguelane.com, 10 December 2019, 19:01

Wolfsburg have secured a ticket to the knockouts, but they are yet to finalize on the spot in the table. If the team could secure a win this Thursday, while Gent fail to deliver the three points, the Germans could take the pole position. As such, a home win seems the likely outcome this Thursday.

Wolfsburg vs Saint-Etienne Head-to-head (h2h)

The reverse fixture ended in 1-1 draw, at Etienne's home.

Previously, these two have clashed in two friendlies, and then, Wolfsburg secured a win in one, and were held to a draw in the other game.

Wolfsburg vs Saint-Etienne Prediction

Wolfsburg were on the road the previous game week in the Europa, and then managed to secure a 0-1 win over Olexandriya. In the meantime, Saint Etienne had the home advantage, and numerical advantage on the pitch due to a red card given to Gent, and still could not convert it into three points. Spoils were shared with a 0-0 scorecard.

This Thursday, consider the fact that Wolfsburg are chasing down Gent to become the champions of the group. The Germans can afford to play without being tensed, since their progression is already confirmed. All they have to do is, try their best on the pitch for the three points, and hope that Gent are held at least to a draw.

This luxury to play fearlessly will likely result in Wolfsburg emerging victorious. On top of this, consider the fact that Saint-Etienne are already eliminated, and possess not much will to fight.

In addition, the Germans have the home advantage as well, and more importantly, they hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent in h2h clashes. Also, do note that Wolfsburg have a 100% winning record at home in h2h encounters.

Going on, also take into account the fact that Wolfsburg come from the much more proficient Bundesliga, as compared to the Ligue 1, which pales in comparison.

Going on, the French outfit have conceded two or more goals in their last four road trips, and in their previous three overall fixtures. The team also were winless in four of their previous five overall games.

Finally, bring under the microscope the reverse encounter. The match might have ended in a draw, but understand that the Germans were on the road, whereas they have the luxury of the home advantage this Thursday.

As such, expect a spirited performance from Wolfsburg. They will give everything they have on the pitch to secure the three points, and will toil hard for the whole of ninety minutes for it.
