Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After sharing the spoils with Lille in their Champions League opener, Wolfsburg will look to return to winning ways when they host Sevilla to their Volkswagen Arena on Wednesday evening. The Wolves made a promising start to the season, but they head into the CL clash following an unexpected 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim. All Bialek, Otavio, and Schlager are likely to miss the game with injuries, while Luca Waldschmidt should be recalled to the starting XI.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Salzburg in their opener where the Red Bulls converted only one of three penalties. The Andalusians are eyeing their first win of the process as well, but beating Wolfsburg on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Important attacker En Nesyri is banned for the visitors, while Oliver Torres remains in the recovery room.
