      Tip Reasoning

      Wolfsburg began their life without star attacking player Kevin De Bruyne at the weekend, and they missed his presence massively.

      They could only manage a goalless draw against Ingolstadt. They had 13 attempts on goal in this match, but the four shots on target couldn’t find their way past Ramazan Ozcan in the Ingolstadt goal.

      This puts them in 4th position in the Bundesliga with eight points from their opening four games. Above them, both 1st placed Borussia Dortmund and 2nd place Bayern Munich hold a perfect league record.

      Wolfsburg’s other dropped points came from another away game against Cologne, so the Bundesliga runners up don’t seem to be travelling too well this season.

      At home they have beaten Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke, and they will be confident of adding to that by defeating CSKA Moscow to get their Champions League campaign off to a winning start.

      CSKA have already played eight league games in Russia, and they have already put together a fairly comprehensive lead at the top of the Russian Premier League.

      They have only dropped two points so far, but it just so happens that they came on Saturday at home to Zenit St Petersburg. This came after a friendly loss to Ufa during the international break.

      These sides have met on two occasions previously, with CSKA winning the last one in 2009 and Wolfsburg taking the victory in the other group match of that year. The home side won on both occasions, which shows the importance of home advantage in these long distance Champions League ties.

      I’m expecting Wolfsburg to take the points in this match. Their squad is of a slightly greater quality and the home advantage should play a big part. It helps that they have won both of their home games so far this season as well.

      Odds of 10/11 for a Wolfsburg win look very attractive as well, with a 2-0 correct scoreline coming in at an equally attractive 9/1.
