Gent vs Wolfsburg Betting Tips, Free Bets & Betting Sites


Gent and Wolfsburg are unbeaten in the UEFA Europa League to lead Group I with little between them. I am expecting a close match at the Ghelamco Arena with both teams walking away with a point.

Gent Form 


Gent have had a solid start to the season having won their last 11 home matches in all competitions. Gent beat Waasland-Beveren 2-0 on Saturday with Roman Yaremchuk and Laurent Depoitre on target to keep the club third in the Belgian First Division A.

Canadian attacking midfielder Jonathan David scored twice in a 3-2 win against St Eitenne in the Europa League group stage. Depoitre scored in a 1-1 draw at Olexandriya and will have to be watched against Wolfsburg. 

Those results extended Gent’s unbeaten run in the Europa League to six matches. Gent have drawn two of their last three Europa League games which can be backed at 3.50.

Gent News


Attacking midfielder Giorgi Chakvetadze is injured and hasn’t played this season, Gent's only player missing. Midfielder Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe has registered nine assists behind a lethal attacking trio.

Gent manager Jess Thorup has been getting the best out of his front three and they have been delivering. Laurent Depoitre has scored eight goals, Roman Yaremchuk has notched 10 while Jonathan David has 10 goals and six assists.

Wolfsburg Form


Wolfsburg are still unbeaten in their first 22 matches under new manager Oliver Glasner. The Wolves progressed in the German Cup, are unbeaten in eight Bundesliga matches and picked up four points from their first two Europa League games.

The Wolves have drawn 1-1 in seven of their last 10 matches in all competitions, an incredible record that has been paying big dividends in the correct score market. The latest was a 1-1 draw at Leipzig with Wout Weghorst scoring a late equaliser.

Wolfsburg beat Oleksandria 3-1 in their Europa League opener at home before a 1-1 draw at St Etienne. It was Wolfsburg’s third draw in their last four away matches in the competition.

Wolfsburg News


Wolfsburg are still missing goalkeeper Koen Casteels, midfielders Ignacio Camacho, Xaver Schlager alongside attackers Daniel Ginczek and Admir Mehmedi. Centre-back John Brooks is close to a return but Thursday could be too soon.

Wout Weghorst has been carrying the load up front with six goals and three assists in 11 matches in all competitions. He will be the go-to-man once again.

Gent vs Wolfsburg Head to Head


These clubs met twice in the 2015-19 UEFA Champions League Round of 16. Wolfsburg won 3-2 in Belgium through Julian Draxler and Max Kruse before a 1-0 in Germany thanks to André Schürrle.

Gent vs Wolfsburg Betting Odds


Bookmakers bet365 have installed Wolfsburg favourites at 2.30 and a draw paying 3.50. Gent can be backed at 2.87 which could be a popular pick considering their 11 game winning streak at the Ghelamco Arena.

Wolfsburg’s last six draws in all competitions have been 1-1 which is paying 6.50 in the correct score market. Wolves striker Wout Weghorst can be backed at 6.00 in the first goalscorer market.

Gent vs Wolfsburg Match Up


St Etienne have won their last 11 home matches while Wolfsburg are unbeaten in their last 22 matches. That should make for a fascinating game with little separating these clubs.
