Sevilla vs Wolfsburg: prediction for the Champions League game
Sevilla didn't record a single victory in the current season so far, but will Wolfsburg snatch points from Nervionenses on November 23? The answer is in our prediction.
Sevilla found themselves in a relatively easy Champions League group with Lille, Wolfsburg and Salzburg and Spanish team was a clear favourite here. But in the first match Julen Lopetegui's men showed the weak spots - in a home match against Salzburg Nervionenses barely saved a 1:1 draw, hosts ended the match with just 10 men on the pitch.
A string of mistakes and lack of fortune didn't let Sevilla to record an away victory over Wolfsburg - a 1:1 draw is surely not a fair result. Sevilla were hoping to change the situation in two matches against Lille, but The Dogs managed to withstand at home, keeping a goalless draw. But everything turned out to be even worse at home match for the Nervionenses, they suffered a 1:2 defeat to the French champion - Sevilla approaches the last round at the last spot in the standings with just three points, but team still have a chance for the playoffs.
Wolfsburg got off to a terrible start of the season - Wolves' board watched helplessly at disappointing performance of Mark van Bommel as team's head coach, but at the end of October their patience has finally came to an end and the Dutch manager was replaced by Florian Kofheldt.
In the first Champions League match under the management of a new head coach Kofheldt made a sensation - Wolfsburg recorded a 2:1 victory over Salzburg at home and returned to the battle for a play-off spot. As for the Bundesliga, Wolves recorded victories over Bayer (2:0) and Augsburg (1:0) and in the most recent match managed to make a comeback in the match against Arminia (2:2), just a month ago it was hard to expect anything like that from the team.
Wolfsburg suffered two out of three most recent away defeats with that score
In four out of five most recent matches of Sevilla this bet was successful
In two most recent away matches Wolfsburg managed to score in the second half
It is a disastrous tournament for Sevilla, they are yet to record a victory here after four rounds, but team still has a chance for the playoffs. Today Nervionenses need a victory over Wolfsburg and hosts will surely do everything to achieve that result.
Wolfsburg's performance improved after the appointment of a new head coach, but there are still many problems in Wolves' game, it became clear in the Bundesliga game against Arminia. Sevilla has a great chance to record an important victory in this match and to continue to fight for the play-off spot.
Our prediction - Sevilla to win
Sevilla is at the 4th spot in the group and it is not an accident - team has problems with consistency in the current season, especially in defensive line, key players are getting injured all the time. Nervionenses are surely a favourite of the home match against Wolfsburg, but Wolves won't give three points so easily, hosts will need to fight hard to pick up three points.
Our second bet is on Sevilla to win by one goal
