Oleksandria – Gent Match Prediction | 03-10-2019 12:55

Wolfsburg were able to secure their own return to European football, ending a three-year absence from continental competition. Thats quite the tie to follow up, but they are being strongly backed for a victory at home to Oleksandria this week. The hosts last act in Europe was their dramatic 3-2 exit to Real Madrid in the Champions League back in 2016.

However, recent Europa League games havent been kind to the hosts, who conceded in five of their six group stage games the last time they featured at this point. Wolfsburg should claim all three points in this one, as they have the chance to get forward and get goals. Oleksandria have seen over 2.5 goals in all of their Europa League defeats so far, while Wolfsburg have seen at least three goals in their two Bundesliga victories this term.

Were predicting a pretty comfortable 1-3 winning score for Shakhtar Donetsk when alls said and done. When taking all factors into account, Shakhtar Donetsk have the ability to be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target. In contrast, Oleksandria might well find it a difficult task finding the net themselves but we do see them converting at least once here, too. Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Oleksandria v Shakhtar Donetsk can be found here - as well as up-to-date odds.

Wolfsburg will have ambitions of a top-four Bundesliga finish and theyll be desperate to play in the Champions League again. We see the visitors struggling here, especially when you consider the gap in resources. They have had a mixed start to the Bundesliga campaign with two wins and two draws, so another victory would be a boost. However, in the meantime we expect them to take the Europa League seriously.

However, this is another kind of test entirely. Since coming back theyve been consistently in the top seven. They attempted promotion and succeeded three years running between 2012 and 2015 but they were refused a top-flight place in the first two campaigns. They have been gradually improving in Ukraine since they were promoted in 2015. The visitors are coming into this clash on the back of a third-place finish in the league last term.

We can see a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 winning score for Oleksandria by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. We feel that Dnipro-1 have it within them to put a goal past this Oleksandria team, but that is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end. Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Oleksandria v Dnipro-1 match are shown here including the latest game odds. It should be a decent one.

Overall, we see enough problems in the hosts defence to back a consolation goal for the visitors. As a result, we are going with a home win and over 2.5 goals to be scored, while a 3-1 home victory is our correct score pick, having landed in two of the visitors six Europa League ties. However, the Ukrainian side have had their own problems in Europe, while they should struggle to hold off a superior side.

However, has that pushed them into the deep end a little too early? The visitors have a short background in the Europa League, but they made it into the group stage thanks to their league performance last term. They head to Wolfsburg in their group opener on Thursday, with the hosts heavy favourites for the victory. Oleksandria face a tough start as they face their first ever group stage clash in European football.
