The Wolves had a dreadful campaign last season in Bundesliga. They barely saved the top flight status only thanks to relegation play-offs wins over Holstein Kiel in late-May. Those wins kept Bruno Labbadia on the bench as the famous German manager is aiming for the top-half finish in the upcoming campaign. Wolfsburg did a decent job in the summer transfer window so far, signing an exciting pair of attackers in the likes of Daniel Ginczek and Wout Weghorst for a total of almost € 25m.

Lyon vs Wolfsburg: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between Lyon and Wolfsburg.

Lyon vs Wolfsburg: Prediction

Both Weghorst and Ginczek got their minutes on the pitch in the 1-1 draw to Norwich City ten days ago, but team’s lone goal came from French midfielder Joshua Guilavogui. Given that Lyon generally favour attacking football and that they shipped three goals to the Terriers on Wednesday, we see aplenty of space for Wolfsburg strikers to shine here.

Backing goals at both ends probably looks to be the best of the betting options, while braver tipsters can try with the Over 3.5 goals FT as well. Bruno Genesio will be able to count on the likes of Mariano Diaz, Memphis Depay, Maxwell Cornet and Bertrand Traore here, meaning we should really be in for a goal fest on the occasion.

Braver punters can also try with Lyon to win & BTTS, while you can alternatively back both teams to score more than once in the match.
