GENT - WOLFSBURG

TEAM NEWS

 

Gent
  • Hein Vanhaezebrouck may alter between three at the back or four at the back, which proved so successful in the group stages.
  • Hannes Van Der Bruggen and Peter Olayinka are out injured for the reception of Wolfsburg. Moses Simon and Brecht Dejaegere have knocks ahead of this one and are doubts.
Wolfsburg
  • Naldo will miss the first-leg through suspension after reaching the yellow card limit in the group stages.
  • Wolfbsurg will also be without Bas Dost, Carlos Ascues, Diego Benaglio and Joshua Guilavogui through injury.
  • Robin Knoche has only just returned from a long-term injury and may be forced to play at the back once more in Naldo's absence.
  • With Guilavogui unavailable, Christian Trasch should continue in front of the back four with Sebastian Jung at right-back.
  • Daniel Caligiuri is one booking away from a suspension.

 

MATCH PREDICTION

 

  • Gent has already exceeded expectations after progressing through the Champions League group stages in their first appearance in the competition.
  • Wolfsburg surprisingly finished the group as winners after beating Manchester United in their final round.
  • The Belgian team progressed through the group unbeaten at home, whereas Wolfsburg only managed one win away from home in their group stages.
  • The Germans also started badly since resuming their season after the winter break, winning just one of four games (2-0 vs Ingolstadt on last Saturday).
