Wolfsburg will host Sevilla on Wednesday night in Group G of the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Wolfsburg had to hold on for a goalless draw in their opening Champions League clash against Ligue 1 outfit Lille. The Germans had their goalkeeper to thank as his heroics helped them pick up a point after playing the final 30 minutes of the game with 10 men.

Wolfsburg's draw against Lille saw a run of four straight wins come to an end and Die Wolfe have not managed a win since then. They were beaten 3-1 by Hoffenheim in their last game and will now be looking to return to winning ways on Wednesday.

Like their hosts, Sevilla had to hold on for a draw in their first Champions League game against Salzburg. The match, which ended 1-1, saw Sevilla concede three penalties in the first half and they were fortunate to see the visitors spurn two of them.

Sevilla have been very impressive in their league assignments and are one of four clubs without defeat in La Liga so far. They will be hoping to carry their league form onto the European stage and advance from their group.


Wolfsburg vs Sevilla Head-to-Head

Wolfsburg and Sevilla will face each other for the very first time on Wednesday. All four teams in their group have one point, so Wolfsburg and Sevilla will both be hoping to get the win to move up the table.

Wolfsburg go into the game on Wednesday on a three-game winless run while Sevilla are unbeaten across all competitions this season.
