Lille vs Wolfsburg: Prediction and Betting Tips
Lille to focus on their Champions League clash
Lille finished last season crowned Ligue 1 champions after a fierce battle with favorites PSG. Moreover, Les Dogues showed great determination and put on an eight-match unbeaten run to claim the French title. That was their fourth title. In Europe, Lille won the Uefa Intertoto cup in 2004.
However, Gourvennec’s team’s new Ligue 1 campaign didn’t start off in a good manner. Despite winning the French Super Cup by beating PSG 1-0, Lille are in the 12th position on the Ligue 1 standings. Hence, Gourvennec will try his best to keep his players’ minds off Ligue 1 and focus on this all-important UCL openings clash.
Lille key points
- Lille won three of their last five home matches
- Le Dogues failed to score in two of their last ten matches
- Gourvennec’s team had four clean sheets in ten matches
Wolfsburg inspired by their flying start to the season
Wolfsburg are playing in the Champions League group stages after finishing fourth in the Bundesliga last season. Notably, they are off to a flying start this term with four wins out of four. Consequently, Marc Van Bommel’s team are at the top of the Bundesliga table after four rounds.
This is the third time Wolfsburg will play in the Champions League group stage. Notably, during their last appearance in the 2015/16 season, they finished first of their group that consisted of Manchester United, PSV, and CSKA Moscow. Moreover, they lost to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals after winning at home 2-0 and losing 3-0 away.
Wolfsburg key points
- Wolfsburg won three of their last five away games
- The Wolves failed to score in two of their last ten matches
- In of their last five away matches, Wolfsburg had two clean sheets
Lille vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Despite the contradicting form that both teams have recently, the bookies are slightly favoring Lille to win. Vbet is offering odds of 2.65 for a Lille win and 2.72 for a Wolfsburg win.
Markedly, the reason for this high odds is that the French are the Ligue 1 champions. Thus the bookies expect them to bounce back from the slow start to their season.
However, with the current form Wolfsburg are in, it is hard to write them off. Especially with the remarkable defensive display that saw them concede just one goal in the Bundesliga.
Therefore, we will go the double chance and the total goals scored in the combos market at Vbet. We will choose two bets that are both with good odds and have high probability.
