Arsenal Women vs Wolfsburg Women Predictions
Wolfsburg Women to Qualify @ 1.91 (10/11)
Tommy Stroot’s team suffered a lack of concentration in the first leg, and they had to pay the price as they now need to build an advantage all over again. Wolfsburg Women were superior in Germany and still had good chances to qualify. The She-wolves have a better team than Arsenal and have been better away from home in the WUCL knockouts. Wolfsburg Women beat Paris Saint-Germain Women 1-0 in Paris last time out, and they should get past this Arsenal team.
The Gunners have won just two of their last five games in the Champions League, and they look set for a second consecutive elimination against Wolfsburg Women. Backing the Germans to qualify is a very valuable option in this fixture.
Both Teams to Score – Yes @ 1.62 (8/13)
Arsenal and Wolfsburg Women have prioritized attack very often in their last few games, and the first leg was a goal fest with a good number of chances on both ends of the pitch. Wolfsburg Women have kept just two clean sheets in their last five matches, while Arsenal Ladies managed just one clean sheet in their previous five games. Both teams have no reason to sit back here as their best chance of reaching the finals lies in attack. A bet on both teams to score has very good value on Women’s football odds betting.
Total Goals – Wolfsburg Women – Over 1.5 @ 2.20 (6/5)
Arsenal’s defense has been very shaky, and they could’ve easily lost by a bigger margin in the first leg. They have a difficult task stopping a Wolfsburg team with very good players in attack, especially Ewa Pajor, who is firing on all cylinders this season. Wolfsburg Women have scored at least two goals in each of their last three games in all competitions, averaging over four goals per game in that period. They scored two goals in their last two games against Arsenal, and they should get at least two goals in normal time.
Arsenal W vs Wolfsburg W Team News
Arsenal’s fringe players stepped up in the absence of key players like Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead. Jonas Eidevall is likely to go with Stina Blackstenius in attack again after her performance last week. The Gunners had their return flight delayed due to an aircraft technical issue, but the squad is back in England.
Lena Lattwein is the only key player absent from the Wolfsburg Women’s team, and she is not expected to travel to England as she nurses an injury. The She-wolves are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Ewa Pajor up front. Sveindis Jonsdottir had a good game against Arsenal and is in line for another start against the Gunners.
