Wolfsburg vs Manchester United 8th December 2015: Champions League Prediction and Preview
8 Dec 2015/ 1445 ET
Group B in the Champions League is getting really exciting as Manchester United head to Germany to play Wolfsburg in a game where the winner will top the group and the loser may be eliminated. Both teams will be desperate to win and this should be an intense game.
Manchester United go into this game after a nil all draw on the weekend in the English Premier League. This side needs to do better. The Red Devils are one of the biggest names in world football and they should be winning more games than they are. This game will have big implications on the manager as well since getting eliminated in the group stages will be unacceptable for the board and this may result in Van Gaal having big some problems.
Wolfsburg will also see this as an opportunity. The German side will be at home and they will believe that they can get a result here against the Red Devils. This side has been in great form in Europe and they will believe that they deserve to make the knock out stage of the tournament. Furthermore they only need draw to qualify and with players such as Luis Gustavo they should be able to do enough. In addition, they will be aided by the fact that Manchester United has been struggling to score goals as of late.
All in all this is going to be a very interesting game between two teams who will be desperate to make the round of 16 in the Champions League. I think that this will be a tight game and as a result the most likely result will be a draw. United has not been able to score lately and since a 0-0 draw is enough for the host they might sit back and park the bus. United need 3 points but I think that they will leave with only 1.
