Tip Reasoning

  • Wolfsburg sit top of the Bundesliga after winning their first four league games.
  • Ligue 1 champions Lille are 12th in France after earning just five points from their opening five fixtures.
  • The hosts picked up just one point from a possible 18 when last in the Champions League Group Stage two seasons ago.

Flying Die Wolfe to best Les Dogues on Matchday 1

Ligue 1 champions Lille have been toiling in the opening weeks of their domestic season and Les Dogues could get turned over by early Bundesliga leaders Wolfsburg at Stade Pierre Mauroy.

After an abysmal 0-4 hammering at the hands of Nice here on Matchday 2 in France, Lille steadied the ship with a 1-1 draw at St. Etienne and 2-1 win over Montpellier, but Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side then slumped to a highly disappointing 2-1 loss at Lorient on Friday.

Those results have left Lille sitting 12th in the Ligue 1 standings and Les Dogues are showing signs of clear regression following the summer departure of boss Christophe Galtier and several key playing personnel.

And they seem far from prepared and short of the quality required to mix it with Europe’s best in this competition. The visit of Wolfsburg to Stade Pierre Mauroy this Tuesday night represents a very difficult start for the French, and the smart money is on the Germans to win through.

Mark van Bommel’s men finished fourth in Bundesliga last term, but they’re setting the early pace this time around after a perfect four wins from four, including a 1-0 triumph over RB Leipzig on their penultimate outing.

A similar display here can see Wolfsburg get their Group G campaign off to the perfect start and we’re tipping Die Wolfe to prevail via a 1-2 score-line.
