FC Olexandriya vs Wolfsburg Prediction
Oleksandriya had played hosts to Zorya the last match-day, and in the tense encounter, only one goal in total was witnessed. The hosts did have the upper hand, but they had to sweat it out for it.
In the 23rd minute, the home team was given a major opportunity to go ahead, as a penalty was awarded in their favor. However, the kick was not converted, which improved the confidence of the visitors. Just when it felt like the game was headed to a goalless draw, the hosts found the back of the net, in the 60th minute.
The sole goal later proved to be the winner and thus secured three valuable points for Olexandriya.
Wolfsburg meanwhile had taken on the high-on-confidence Frankfurt team, after the latter’s phenomenal win against Bayern. Be that as it may, hosts Eintracht were completely flabbergasted with the performance of the guests. The visitors scored two unanswered goals, even with fewer man on the pitch, due to a red card.
The result in the reverse fixture of the game will be a great pointer as to how this upcoming fixture will turn out. Then Wolfsburg had the home advantage, and they made good use of it with two early goals. Later, though Olexandriya had cut down the lead with a goal of their own, it was once again restored, just a minute later. Thus, the Germans registered a 3-1 win.
One more win this Thursday would greatly amplify Wolfsburg’s chances to progress. Also considering their stature as a team from a top-five league in Europe, against a squad from Ukraine, this chance is further magnified.
Finally, consider that the Ukrainians are placed dead-last in the group table, and are completely winless. They have also conceded the most and scored the least.
Taking into account all these factors, expect a victory for the guests, Wolfsburg, this Thursday.
