Wolfsburg vs Malmö FF: Malmo is coming with a new coach
Wolfsburg team news:
Wolfsburg is out of the crisis if judged by the latest games of Glasner’s squad. After an away win over Paderborn and a point win against Fortune Dusseldorf, Glasner’s team won full points against Hoffenheim in the last round. They showed no intention of giving up the race for European positions this season.
Glasner may be pleased with his team’s offensive performance after the winter break and Weghorst’s return to goals. On the other side, Wolfsburg’s defense seems to be leaky and has received as many as 10 hits in five official games after the winter break. This is not a good sign before the first leg of the Europa League knockout phase.
Probable lineup: Casteels, Roussillon, Pongračić, Knoche, Mbabu, Arnold, Guilavogui, Gerhardt, Brekalo, Weghorst, Joao Victor.
Malmo team news:
Malmo entered the new calendar year with new coach Tomasson, who replaced German strategist Rosler. In the first season, Rosler led Malmo from eleventh to third place in the championship standings and last season his team finished second with points less than champion Djurgarden.
In addition, Rosler has taken Malmo for two consecutive years to the knockout phase of the Europa League and has now given the opportunity to Tomasson against Wolfsburg to make his coaching debut in European competitions. Jon Dahl Tomasson has transformed into one of Denmark’s top players in his twenty years of playing career and, after completing his playing career, has mostly worked as an assistant in Dutch clubs and the Danish national team.
For Tomasson games against Wolfsburg is not an advantage given the fact that the new championship season in Sweden is only from April, so it is questionable in what form his team is. On the other hand, a good sign could be his convincing last week’s 8-0 Cup win over lower-league Syrianski.
Probable lineup: Dahlin, Nielsen, Safari, Bengtsson, Larsson, Lewicki, Bachirou, Christiansen, Rieks, Rosenberg, Thelin.
We believe that Wolfsburg is a great favorite in this match. That is why we believe they will win this match. Additionally, we also believe they will try to win with more than a goal.
