Wolfsburg vs Manchester United – UEFA Champions League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Manchester United travel to Volkswagen area to face VfL Wolfsburg on MatchDay Six of the UEFA Champions League. The Bundesliga side sit on the first position in Group B with nine points while Manchester United are on second position with eight points after five matches.

Louis van Gaal‘s side need a win to secure qualification as PSV Eindoven have an opportunity to go through to the knock-outs if they beat CSKA Moscow in case of a draw or a loss for the visitors in Germany.

Team News

Felipe Lopes is yet to regain match fitness for the home side, but Julian Draxler has passed his fitness test and is likely to make an appearance. Although Dante will return to the side, having missed their weekend fixture, Luiz Gustavo has been listed as a doubt.

Manchester United have a number of injury concerns with Morgan Schneiderlin picking up a hip injury against West Ham United to join Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and Phil Jones on the sidelines. Patrick McNair is doubtful as well.

Wolfsburg Possible Starting Lineup: Diego Benaglio, Christian Trasch, Naldo, Dante, Marcel Schafer, Andre Schurrle, Josuha Guilavogui, Maximilian Arnold, Julian Draxler, Max Kruse, Bas Dost.

Manchester United Possible Starting Lineup: David de Gea, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Ashley Young, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Michael Carrick, Juan Mata, Marouanne Fellaini, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“I think [they are] quite different. The style is different. Louis van Gaal is there. Of course they are going to want to play on the possession and calm the game down. We have to be aggressive, even if they calm it down.”

– Andre Schurrle, Wolfsburg.

I have the experience as a manager that the goals shall come. When you are creating chances at the end you shall finish those kind of chances. That’s why we have that belief. It’s a matter of time and I hope we can prove it.

-Louis van Gaal, Manchester United.

Contributor’s Pick

Manchester United have struggled to score this season, with five of their last nine competitive matches ending in goalless draws. It is likely to be a low-scoring affair, with statistics showing there have been less than 2.5 goals per match in both club’s last three UEFA Champions League fixtures.

According to Head-2-Head statistics, the English Premier League side has won its last three encounters with the Bundesliga side, but on current form, Wolfsburg are likely to win 1-0.
