The visitors are on the second place, trailing seven points behind the Bundesliga leaders despite losing 3-2 against Schalke. Since the loss to Everton in the previous round, Wolfsburg went on to win two matches in a row, score four goals and concede only one. Seguin is the only player under doubt, even if Diego Benaglio is more than likely to start despite his hand injury, and they always try to compensate their shaky defensive line with an impressive display of power in attack. De Bruyne, Olic and Perisic are where the danger could come from if they are to avoid a defeat.
Lille is battling for relegation in Ligue 1, are unable to win in eight matches, five out of which are defeats. They are more or likely in the same situation in Europa League where they are yet to win a match. Even if they have a good defensive line, they seem to lack a forward one, which is why Wolfsburg might attempt to benefit from their form. Lopes and Delaplace are still sidelined, while Balmont and Martin are under doubt, but with some chances to feature at least for a while.

While Lille might have more international experience, Wolfsburg are in a far better shape than the hosts which is why we hope they win and bet 7 units on it with 2.30 odds from Bet354, the best bookmaker for football.
