Group G of the Champions League has the makings of a fascinating four-way battle so Lille and Wolfsburg, who meet in northern France on matchday one, will be desperate to make a fast start to their campaigns.

Streetwise Sevilla and lively outsiders RB Salzburg complete the section and faltering French champions Lille will be wary of a Wolfsburg side who have won their first four Bundesliga matches this term.

(Tuesday, 20:00)

Lille pulled off a massive shock in Ligue 1 last season, beating star-studded Paris Saint-Germain to the French title by one point, but they have made a patchy start to their defence.

Coach Christophe Galtier, the mastermind behind their league triumph, left for Nice and his successor Jocelyn Gourvennec has won just one of his first five Ligue 1 matches in charge.

The Champions League offers Lille a chance to kickstart their campaign and they are 17/10 to claim a home win over in-form Wolfsburg.

Their new boss Mark van Bommel had an embarrassing start to the season as Wolfsburg were thrown out of the German Cup for making too many substitutions but he has hit the ground running in the Bundesliga.

Van Bommel's men have won four out of four in the league, conceding only one goal, with last term's runners-up RB Leipzig among their victims. They are 7/4 to continue that winning run in the Champions League, while the draw is 12/5. 

Lille vs Wolfsburg Team News

Lille hope to have Timothy Weah, Jonathan Bamba and Turkey right-back Zeki Celik fit again after missing the 2-1 weekend defeat at Lorient. However, Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches is expected to be sidelined for another two weeks.

Wolfsburg are missing Xaver Schlager, Bartosz Bialek, William and Paulo Otavio but full-backs Kevin Mbabu and Jerome Roussillon returned to the squad for Saturday's Bundesliga win over Greuther Furth. Netherlands striker Wout Weghorst is set to lead the line.

The teams met in the group stage of the 2014-15 Europa League when Wolfsburg's team included Kevin De Bruyne, Ivan Perisic, Ivica Olic and Swiss left-back Ricardo Rodriguez.

De Bruyne scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at home to Lille and Rodriguez struck twice as Wolfsburg ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in the return fixture in France.

Wolfsburg to win - BET NOW

 

Lille's defensive standards have slipped alarmingly and they may struggle against a well-drilled, confident Wolfsburg side.

The French champions conceded just 23 goals in 38 league matches last season but they have been breached 11 times in five games this term while Wolfsburg have kept three clean sheets in four in the Bundesliga.

Van Bommel's men are yet to concede a first-half goal in the league this season and the draw-Wolfsburg double result has copped in two of their last three games.

The Germans are back in the Champions League for the first time since reaching the quarter-finals in 2015-16 but they are an experienced side who should keep their patience even if they are level at half-time.
