UEFA Champions League

Introduction

Quite recently, UEFA has published a fine piece of paper – its Handbook for 2014/2015 [1]. At first, I must say it’s kind of reading you fall in love with: full of stats, numbers and so on.

Game Introduction

The game takes place on Saturday, 2nd May 2015 at 13:30 CET in front of 30000 head crowd at Volkswagen Arena.

My tip is to choose home win at 1.45 odds. Wolfsburg will benefit from a strong squad, very good team chemistry, and as a cherry on top – their talismans: Bas Dost, Kevin de Bruyne or Andre Schurrle. In no way can the away team match the quality of these players.

Introduction

RB Leipzig is a relatively unknown but modern football club, based in Leipzig, Germany. Looking at the Club logo, one might see a reference to the club’s financial background. Contrary to what you might expect, though, RB stands for RasenBallsport, not Red Bull, but that´s just because of Bundesliga´s regulations. The Club has advanced a lot lately, having bought big name players and being promoted to 2nd Bundesliga last season.
