Match status: 2019-20 Europa League Group Stages
Venue: Volkswagen Arena (Wolfsburg)

The hosts have already secured qualification to the knockout rounds of the competition but will be determined to finish at the summit of the standings. They are in a precarious situation at the moment, sitting second on the log, a point adrift of Gent in first place.

If they are to lead the chasing pack come the end of Europa League group stage action, they will need to secure victory against third-place Saint-Etienne while banking on the worst team in the group, FC Oleksandria to pull off a result against Gent.

This conundrum is exactly what sets us up for a thrilling encounter between these two teams as they battle for victory on German soil.

Wolfsburg vs Saint-Etienne Team News

The home side were not entirely convincing in their last Europa League game against basement club Oleksandria, managing to secure a 1-0 victory on away soil. They were scarcely credible throughout the game, leaving manager Oliver Glasner scratching his head at times down the touchline.

If Wolfsburg were poor in their last game, it is pretty fair to say that Saint-Etienne were worse in their last European fixture. They failed to find a way past a resilient Gent side, despite home and numerical advantage under their belt, after one of the opposition’s players received his marching orders from the referee.

Claude Puel must have given his players the hairdryer treatment in the aftermath of the game as they failed to capitalize on their opposition’s weaknesses on the night. Spoils were shared with a 0-0 score-card.

For this fixture, consider that the hosts are playing for victory to usurp Gent to the summit of the standings. Their progression is already guaranteed and will likely have the luxury to play fearlessly in front of the home support.

The best they can do is to give their all against Saint-Etienne while counting on Oleksandria to pull off an unlikely upset against Gent. Also, the visitors have absolutely nothing to play for here, given they have already lost their qualifying hopes. Win, lose or draw; they are still exiting the competition anyway.

Die Wolfe will be hoping to use home advantage to maximum effect against this French team. Their 100% unbeaten record against this opposition in h2h encounters should also give them the upper hand heading into this fixture. Also, Wolfsburg have a 100% winning record at home in h2h clashes against this foe.

Going on, the visitors have conceded no less than two goals in their last four games on the road, and in their previous three overall fixtures. They are also winless in four of the last five games across all competitions.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Wolfsburg: Ismail Azzaoui, Yunus Malli, Ignacio Camacho.

St Etienne: Wahbi Khazri, William Saliba, Kévin Monnet-Paquet, Charles Abi, Yohan Cabaye.

They will lay blood and sweat bare on the pitch to clinch maximum points and should achieve just that at full-time.
