Kukesi vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Kukesi is not a familiar name to many in the international contests, but they are one of the best sides from Albania that take part in the Kategoria Superiore league.
The host enjoys the home ground advantage, but the question will be whether the Albanian outfits have enough form to hold the heavy attacks from the German side.
The match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair at Tirana as the visitor is on the back of a 1-4 win on the road against the likes of Furstenwalde in their last clash at DFB Pokal contest.
With their squad strength, the Wolves can inflict damage to the home team’s defense with ease. The host has 4 clean sheets in their last five home matches, but it was against teams from their own league.
Meanwhile, the Wolves have scored 4 goals in three of their last five outings in Bundesliga. Since they have fared better against stronger teams, the away side has a good chance in the upcoming clash.
So, the tip for Wolfsburg to win with a +1 handicap will probably be a suitable option for the punters.
