Wolfsburg had a very slow start to the season. However, they chalked up two points in the first rounds of the Champions League: Wolfsburg drew with Lille (0:0) away and with Sevilla (1:1) at home. After a predictable 1:3 defeat at Salzburg, the Wolves managed to recorded their first victory in the return game (2:1).

If the Wolves win today, they will progress to the last 16.
