Wolfsburg vs Desna
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-Off at 19.15 UK
Venue: VOLKSWAGEN ARENA, Wolfsburg.
Wolfsburg have won very solid 7th place in previous edition of German Bundesliga, which grants participation in Europa League qualifiers.
The Wolves have successfully skipped the first obstacle last week by beating Kukesi on the road. This time they will play on home turf against Ukrainian side Desna. Anything but an easy win for the Germans would be labelled as a big surprise.
This is going to be the first ever European match for the visitors. They have demonstrated ability to battle against top teams in Ukraine over the course of last few months, and definitely shouldn’t be underestimated.
The current price on home win is at 1.16, which hardly brings any profit or value. Let’s take a look at some alternative options.

Considering this is their European debut, fact there were no previous matches between Desna and Wolfsburg doesn’t come as a surprise.
Wolfsburg vs Desna Prediction
Wolfsburg kicked off Bundesliga season 2020/2021 last weekend with a goalless draw against Bayer Leverkusen at home. The team is led by coach Oliver Glasner and interestingly, his squad performed much better on the road than at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA last season.
At this ground they secured only four victories in 17 matches, seven draws and six defeats. There were some acquisitions during the summer – Maxence Lacroix was brought from Sochaux, as well as young Polish striker Bartosz Bialek from Zaglebie. They have played a significant role in 4-0 victory against Kukesi in Albania. Still, the man of the match was Wout Weghorst with two goals.
Desna are entering this match in great form, having won three out of last five matches across competitions. Still, their lack of experience in playing such big games is surely going to play a big factor. We are backing Wolfsburg to win the match and to keep a clean sheet.
