Betting action from Pinnacle Sports on Champions League Round of 16, Game 1 between Gent vs Wolfsburg from Ghelamco Arena.
Gent vs Wolfsburg
A 2-1 win against the previously unbeaten Zenit St Petersburg sealed Gent’s place in the last 16, becoming the first Belgian side to progress to the Champions League knockout stage in the process.
Whilst Wolfsburg are still a tough draw, Gent will be spurred on by the fact they managed to avoid higher ranked top seeds. Whilst still 3.550 underdogs to make the quarter-finals, the Belgians have lost just once at home in all competitions this season.
Despite leaving it late, Wolfsburg sealed qualification with a 3-2 matchday six home win against Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United. Four wins out of six, including three home wins, saw the German side take top spot with 12 points, finishing two clear of second-placed PSV.
Starting as 1.337 favourites to qualify, the Wolves have been woefully out of form of late and are without a win since November, losing four and drawing three. Dieter Heckling will be looking at this huge match-up as his chance to re-ignite his team’s season.
