After going to Belgium and winning 3-2 Wolfsburg will look to finish the job against Gent at the Volkswagon Arena. Wolfsburg are far the stronger team and playing in a much bigger league in the Bundesliga will stand to them with stronger competition week in week out. Andre Shurrle the former Chelsea winger has come to life in recent weeks scoring a hat trick a couple of weeks ago. With Julian Draxler settled in well since his summer move from Schalke it's surprising to see Wolfsburg in eight position in the Bundelsiga. But the conquerors of Manchester United will look to move on to the next round here as long as they avoid a two goal defeat, which really shouldnt be on the cards here.
Gent were trailing 3-0 in the first leg before they got some luck in the tie, Gent actually played quite well but couldnt score in the game and it wasnt until Wolfsburg went clear that the home side managed to get the ball in the net. Once they did though Gent looked dangerous at every attack and although they lost the game 3-2 they easily could have gotten something from the game. Gent will look to Kums, Coubilaly and Depoitre to give them a chance in this one. It's tough to see Gent being able to turn this game around though. Wolfsburg at home are just too strong and I am going to take the German side to get the win here.
Wolfsburg have won all three of their home ties in the Champions League so far this season and I think they make it four wins here. It's tight odds and not much value in it but I do think taking a winner here is better than trying to play the handicap which looks very tough to call.
