Wolfsburg vs Oleksandriya PREVIEW & PREDICTION 19/09/2019

On Thursday, starting at 20:00 pm, the match Wolfsburg – Oleksandriya will be played in the Europa League group stage I, 2019/2020. In their history, Wolfsburg has never met a Ukrainian opponent, and Oleksandriya has never played with a German band. It will be a duel of premieres, in which the Germans are big favorites to get a comfortable victory.

Wolfsburg started the season in the Bundesliga positively, but only got two disappointing draws with Paderborn and Dusseldorf in the last 2 rounds. The “Wolves” base their game on the stripes, with Weghorst the fixed point of the attack, ready to score in front of any opponent. The 3-4-3 system proposed by Oliver Glasner may bear fruit, but the Ukrainians will try to take advantage of the spaces offered by Wolfsburg. Oleksandriya ranks 3 in the first league in Ukraine, at a considerable distance from the leader Sahtior Donetk. Ukrainians will be “in the box”, playing on the counterattack, but the higher value of the Bundesliga group should make the difference.
