First Team

All eyes on last 16

The key facts and stats ahead of VfL’s trip to Sevilla.

All four teams in UEFA Champions League Group G still have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition. The Wolves travel to Sevilla on Tuesday evening (kick-off 21:00 CET) knowing that a point will keep alive their hopes of reaching the last 16. The teams drew 1-1 in Wolfsburg in September.

Facts and figures on Tuesday’s game:

  • Both teams drew 2-2 in the league at the weekend. VfL recovered from two goals down against Arminia Bielefeld, while Sevilla were held at home to Alaves in La Liga.

  • The Rojiblancos are still without a win in Group G, drawing at home to Salzburg (1-1), away to Wolfsburg (1-1) and in Lille (0-0). They lost 2-1 at home to the French club last time out, despite taking a 1-0 lead.

  • The Wolves recorded their first victory of the group stage on Matchday 4. The 2-1 win at home to Salzburg leaves them in third place in the group, level with second-placed Lille.

  • VfL have not won away from home in the competition since February 2016, when they triumphed 3-2 at KAA Gent. The Wolves have won three of their 10 Champions League games on foreign soil.

  • Sevilla have not won any of their last seven European meetings against Bundesliga opposition. Normally so strong at home, they are currently on a four-game winless run at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in the Champions League.
