Manchester Utd vs Wolfsburg by Rahul
The Manchester United attacking lineup has a settled look to it with Martial, Rooney, Mata and Memphis all lined up to take the attack to the oppositions and showed that while coming back from a 1-0 deficit to beat Southampton by a score of 3-2. Martial in particular has been in hot form, finding the net with 3 goals in 3 games since that Champions League outing, and he will be looking forward to having another good run out tonight. Defensively, United will probably welcome back Phil Jones to partner Smalling at centre half and this could lead to some confusion in the partnership that might lead a good counter-attacking side in Wolfsburg take opportunities to score
Wolfsburg are sitting in 4th spot in the league table this time around, but will be looking confident as their team settles down after some transfers in and out of the side. On most nights, like tonight, Wolfsburg will lineup with a front 4 of Bast Dost, Draxler, Caliguiri and Schurrle which is good counter attacking side for European style of football. While they have only scored 11 goals in 8 games so far, they have also managed to ensure that they concede 8 goals in 8 games, especially one where they got smashed by 5 goals against Bayern Munich, after being 1-0 up at half time before the Lewandowski show. Wolfsburg have shown in patches that they are prone to leaks on the defence, but their objective looks to be to out-score opponents, and I elect this style will continue in to tonight's game.
When these 2 sides met in 2009 in the Champions League; both games landed over 2.5 goals and I expect much of the same tonight, not because of the past, but because both teams need goals to try and secure the win tonight.
