Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Wolfsburg will be looking to build on a 4-0 win over Kukesi when they host Desna at their Volkswagen Arena in the Europa League third qualifying round. The Wolves kicked off their qualifying campaign in style, and, no doubt, they will go all guns blazing at Desna in Thursday’s showdown. Dutch attacker Wout Weghorst continues where he left last term, and the 28-year-old, who scored a brace in round 2, will be the man to watch in the home team.
The Ukrainian outfit, on the other hand, face an uphill task on their Europa League debut. The visitors are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Thursday’s clash, but preventing Wolfsburg from scoring at Volkswagen Arena is easier said than done. Pylyp Budkivskyi is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors against Wolfsburg, but he is unlikely to help the Ukrainians make a miracle in Germany.
Highlighted Player (Ignacio Camacho):
Ignacio Camacho is an experienced midfielder who plays for Vfl Wolfsburg as a midfielder. Camacho was born in Zaragoza on May 4, 1990 and it is no surprise he started his youth career at his hometown club Zaragoza. Atletico Madrid scouts spotted him in 2005 and he decided to join the capital club at the age of 15.
After scoring two goals in 30 appearances for los Rojiblancos in La Liga, Ignacio Camacho joined fellow Spanish side Malaga in 2011. Camacho established himself as one of Malaga’s most important players and he was playing successful for the Andalusian side until 2017 when he moved to Germany. The Spanish footballer signed for Wolfsburg for a fee of £10 million and he made his Bundesliga debut on August 19 in a 3-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund.
Ignacio Camacho, whose preferred foot is right, made his Spain debut on August 18, 2014 against Germany, coming as a substitute for Sergio Busquets. Camacho’s main position is defensive midfielder.
Highlighted Team (Wolfsburg):
Wolfsburg are a German football club founded in the aftermath of the World War II (1945). Die Wolfe (The Wolves) wear green and white shirts and they play their home games at Volkswagen Arena. The capacity of the stadium is 30,000 and it was opened on 13 December, 2002.
It is well known that German car manufacturer Volkswagen are the club’s main sponsors. Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga trophy in 2009 and the likes of Edin Dzeko, Grafite and Zvjezdan Misimovic were part of the club’s golden generation.
You should bear in mind that Grafite and Dzeko scored 54 goals between each other in the 2008/2009 Bundesliga campaign and that the team clinched the trophy thanks to a 5-1 win over Werder Bremen on 23 May, 2009. Die Wolfe won the German Cup trophy in 2015, with the team beating star-studded Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the title game. Wolfsburg are a team that has no bitter rivals in German football.
