On Saturday the start of the Emirates Cup will see Wolfsburg take on Villareal in the opening game at Arsenal's Emirates Staidum. Villareal lost their best player Vietto to Atletico Madridin the summer and are in the middle of what could be best described as a rebuilding phase. Villareal will be without Jonaton Dos Santos who is on Gold Cup action with Mexico, Leo Baptistao and Gerard Moreno have a big job filling Vietto's boots and it may be very difficult for the yellow submarines this season but this is a young side and pre season will be used to get a balanced side before La Ligs starts.
Villareal face a Wolfsburg team that has been assembled over the last three years and with one of the best attacking midfields in Europe this is a side ready to compete at the top table in both Germany and Europe. With Kevin De Bruyne, Dost and Schurrle there is plenty of goals in this side and Wolfsburg will come to London to win this pre season tournament. Alongside the aforementioned trio Wolfsburg have brought in Kruse from Mochengladbach in a €12million deal. This is a quality side and for me they are a great bet to win this game.
Take Wolfsburg to get the win here. Villareal are missing their best player and I feel like Wolfsburg are just better balanced as with any pre season or friendly game I wont be committing too much money but this one is still worth a punt.
