Wolfsburg is going to welcome the team of Manchester United in a meeting of the group B of the Champions League. Here is our football prediction.
Wolfsburg made a precious win with 2:0 against CSKA Moscow in the previous round of the group. So the Wolves came out of 1st place in the standings and possibly draw in the upcoming game by soccer picks will rank them forward. In a key match for the denouement of group B against Manchester United, Wolfsburg will have the advantage of being a host, and so far at home the team has had 2 wins in the tournament without a goal allowed. After missing the loss against Borussia Dortmund with 2:1 over the weekend, we will see in the team of Wolves the basic pillar in defence - Brazilian Dante. His compatriot Luis Gustavo, however, won`t be so lucky and will remain outside the group because of an injury. Bass Dost stayed a reserve against Borussia, but will now be on top of the attack in a Dieter Hecking. The central striker of Wolfsburg will be assisted by Max Kruse, and Nicklas Bendtner will remain on the bench.
Manchester United made a disappointing draw of 0:0 with PSV in the previous round and put under serious question mark its ranking ahead. The Red Devils are on the 2nd place in the group, but the expected victory of PSV vs. CSKA Moscow will require mandatory success. Before the visit to Germany, Louis van Gaal has a lot of problems with the team. Because of the injuries the visit of Wolfsburg will be missed by key players like Wayne Rooney, Morgan Sneiderlin, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia. So in the middle of the field as a partner of Bastian Schweinsteiger we will see the experienced Michael Carrick. In the attack in the absence of Wayne Rooney, the only overt striker will be Anthony Martial. The youngster will be assisted by rear positions by Marwan Felaini and Juan Mata. The duel will be skipped and by the permanently injured Luke Shaw, who broke a leg in the first match of the group stage of this year`s tournament.
We expect an extremely tense and emotional match between Manchester United and Wolfsburg. We think there will be a fight with some hits, so our football forecast is under 2.5 goals.
