Reason For Wolfsburg vs St Etienne Predictions

  • Wolfsburg are already assured of their place in the last 32 but will want to keep their hopes of snatching top spot of the group alive by winning the match.
  • That’ll be no easy task, however, as the hosts have now failed to win their last 6 home games.
  • St Etienne have nothing but pride to play for, having taken just 4 points from their 5 group games; all of which coming in draws.
  • With all but one of said matches having featured goals at both ends, Thursday’s clash should be an entertaining one.

Wolfsburg looking for rare home win

There’s not a huge amount of pressure on Wolfsburg in Thursday’s clash but they won’t want to risk angering their fans any further with another poor result. The side are already assured of a place in the last 32 but a win in this game would give them a chance of top spot in the group as well as lifting spirits around the club.

Indeed, Wolfsburg haven’t been playing very well of late and come into the game having lost their last 2 matches, as well as having failed to have secured victory in front of the home crowd in 6 straight matches. On paper, the Germans should be performing at a stronger level and will be hoping to use Thursday’s game as springboard towards turning things around.

St Etienne playing for nothing but pride

Meanwhile, St Etienne’s Europa League campaign simply hasn’t got to plan. The French outfit came into the group looking like having a reasonable chance of advancing from it but haven’t won any of their 5 games thus far, frustratingly drawing 4 times in the process.

Also down in 8th in Ligue 1, Les Verts aren’t pulling up any trees this season and their work so far can be considered average at best. Nonetheless, they do tend to be a fairly entertaining outfit and that thought is more than reflected in their involvement in the Europa League, with both teams having notched in 4 of their 5 matches in it thus far.

Excitement expected but Wolfsburg should edge it

Ultimately, we’re expecting this to be an open and exciting game. Nothing but a win would be of any use to the hosts, whereas the visitors are typically an expansive outfit and can afford to play with real freedom given they have absolutely nothing riding on the fixture.

All things considered, backing the Both Teams to Score line looks the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned and is something we’re more than happy to do. 4 of Wolfsburg’s last 6 home games have seen goals at both ends, as have St Etienne’s last 4 on the road and 3 overall and everything about this fixture suggest both teams will score, with a 2-1 home win on the cards. Wolfsburg have the greater need for the win and should have enough quality to just about edge it.
