Wolfsburg will host Manchester United in final round of Champions league group stage. Wolfsburg suffered defeat in previous round of German Bundesliga against Dortmund at home 1:2 and they now must focus on this maybe most important match in this season for them. They are currently at 1st position at the table in group B but with only one point more than second Manchester United and two more than third PSV. They must go for a victory to claim their placement into knockout stage and it ain't gonna be easy task since they are not in best possible shape at the moment, they now must consolidate their squad and win here at all costs. Wolfsburg is playing in variable form in this season, but still they are at decent 5th position in German top league. In German Cup they were very unlucky and run to Bayern Munich already in 1/16 finals where were eliminated. Wolfsburg must improve their performances to try to repeat previous season when they were pretty successful, in German Bundesliga they ended at second position, while in Europa league were stopped in quarter finals by Napoli, now in worst case scenario they will continue their European journey in Europa league but for sure will now try to achieve positive outcome and achieve another three points at home, they won in both duels in front of their fans in Champions league group stage in this campaign. Wolfsburg is playing very good at home in this season and they suffered also only two defeats in front of their fans, first in Cup against Bayern Munich and second in last round of Bundesliga against Dortmund. Defender Felipe Lopes and defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo are in doubt for this match due to minor injuries and fitness.
Manchester United on the other hand also must go for a victory, this is decisive match for them and they must give their best to win and reach knockout stage. They are not in great shape, currently are at 4th position in English Premier league with 3 points less than first placed Leicester, while now despite that they are at 2nd place in Champions league group B still can fail to win placement into knockout phase, in previous five rounds they celebrated two times, got two draws and suffered one defeat against PSV on the road. Manchester United is coming to this match after three consecutive draws and they must now go for a victory, this for sure won't be easy against strong German side and they must play on very high level here to celebrate and achieve their goal. Manchester can be satisfied with their results since they are not playing in best possible shape, they were also eliminated from English FA Cup by Middlesbrough and it shows that they are playing in variable form. Manchester United must try to find consistency in their game and try to overcome those series of unconvincing games. Another their problem is long list of injured players, defenders Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo, defensive midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, midfielder Ander Herrera and forward Wayne Rooney will stay out of action for this match while appearance of defender Patrick McNair is in doubt due to slight injury.
This is match of decision for these two sides, both teams are in similar position and must give their best to win here and secure their placement into Champions league knockout stage, Wolfsburg is maybe have slight advantage since they are hosts, but both teams are coming here after not very successful performances, I expect open match with both sides to attack and both teams to score seems like very good option.
