Wolfsburg vs Gent: Match preview
Until last Wednesday, Wolfsburg did not know about the defeat, but then Glasner’s team had a tough home defeat to RB Leipzig in the DFB Cup. Obviously, that match shooked the confidence of the Wolfsburg players, who in the championship game suffered a heavy defeat away to Borussia Dortmund.
Gent currently tops the European League group table with Wolfsburg, but the question of moving to the next stage of the competition is completely open. Gent registered only one win in 11 away games this season in the domestic Cup.
Wolfsburg team news:
In the last two games, the otherwise solid defense of Wolfsburg has racked up as many as nine goals and it is clear that Glasner expects his players to react against Gent, especially since this is a match that could be crucial to the team’s European ambitions.
At Wolfsburg, Casteels, Schlager, Camacho, Ginczek and Mehmedi have injury problems. Glasner will use a 3-4-3 formation in this match as well, with Brekalo, Klaus and Weghorst’s expected from the first minute at the top of the attack.
Probable lineup: Pervan, Tisserand, Bruma, Knoche, Steffen, Guilavogoui, Arnold, Mbabu, Brekalo, Weghorst, Klaus.
Gent team news:
Thorup’s team is awaiting a visit to Wolfsburg in good atmosphere as it has only registered one defeat in the last 17 official matches. However, the fact is that this is a typical home team.
Chakvetadze has been injured for some time now, and among the 19 players Thorup is counting on to play with Wolfsburg, there are no Cuba and Dejaegere, who have been given a break due to private obligations. Thorup should put the team in a 4-4-2 formation with Yaremchuk and Delpoitre at the top of the attack.
Probable lineup: Kaminski, Lustig, Plastun, Ngadeu-Ngadjui, Asare, Kums, Owusu, Odjidja-Ofoe, David, Delpoitre, Yaremchuk.
The main thing for both teams is not to lose. They are sharing the first position and don’t want to risk anything in this match. So, are prediction is that there will be not so many goals.
