Kukësi form and stats

This is not the first game this season in the Europa League for Kukësi, as the manager S. Gega led his troops to eliminate Slavia Sofia, and reach the 2nd Qualifying Round. Last season their Europa League adventure ended in the 1st qualifying round.

40 points is a decent return from 18 Superliga games here at Elbasan Arena for Kukësi. The data says 12 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses.

A nice win for Kukësi last time playing, versus Slavia Sofia. That was also a home game and the match ended 2-1 with Godberg Cooper and Patrick Friday Eze scoring for the victors. A strong away win before that one, visiting Luftetari Gjirokaster and winning 5-2.

The victory against Slavia Sofia came after Godberg Cooper's winning goal. The Kukësi manager S. Gega was very happy afterwards with the decision to bring on that player in the 66th minute.

A decent goal production from Kukësi in their home games so far, with 32 goals from 18 league matches. Kukësi are not conceding a lot of goals here at Elbasan Arena in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 12 from 18 matches.

Wolfsburg form and stats

Wolfsburg was sent out of Europa League in the 8th finals last season, when Shakhtar Donetsk turned out to be too strong.

9 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses. That’s the product of Wolfsburg playing as the away team in the Bundesliga this season.

Wolfsburg lost away at Shakhtar Donetsk (0-3) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick. It was a Europa League defeat before that one as the away game against Shakhtar Donetsk wasn't a success with a 0-3 loss.

It's a bit worrying for Wolfsburg that their goalkeeper Koen Casteels made six saves in the Shakhtar Donetsk game last time out, but still couldn''t prevent the loss.

Wolfsburg are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 29 times in 17 away games so far. Wolfsburg have conceded 23 goals in these away matches.

The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
