Lille vs Wolfsburg (September 14) match preview and stats

Lille started the 2021-22 season badly. They are 12th in Ligue 1 with only one victory and two draws. But we should not forget that Les Dogues won the 2021 Trophee Des Champions versus PSG (1-0). Other Lille’s rivals in 2021 were Metz (3-3), Nice (0-4), Saint-Etienne (1-1), Montpelier (2-1), and Lorient (1-2).

In the most recent fixture, Lille were defeated by Lorient, who dominated from the start of the game. Lorient made 14 shots and seven on target, whereas Lille made nine and three, respectively.

In spite of their disappointing results, overall Les Dogues’ stats are not that bad. They have created 46 chances in penalty areas in five matches and have made 49 shots, with 21 being of them on target. In defence, they have made 127 defensive actions in five fixtures.

We have seen a total over 2.5 goals in four of the last five fixtures with Lille participating. The same outcome is priced with the odds of 2.30 (+130; 13/10) in the next match.

Wolfsburg started this season perfectly. They are first in the 2021-22 Bundesliga table. The Wolves won four starting fixtures beating Bochum (1-0), Hertha (2-1), Leipzig (1-0) and Greuther Furth (2-0).

Despite these results, Wolfsburg have not played flawlessly in the 2021-22 season. They have made 34 shots and have created the same number of chances in penalty areas.
