Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 7.45pm GMT. Live coverage of the match will be available on BT Sport 2.


The first three matches went without a win as they had to settle for a draw, followed by two defeats in the process. However, three consecutive wins in the final three matches saw Gent make it to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

In the last 15 matches, they have lost only three and went on to win in 11 of those fixtures. After two consecutive defeats, the Belgium outfit bounced back with a 2-0 victory over Mouscron-Peruwelz in the last fixture.

The last seven matches at home have seen Gent register victories. They will be hoping for the same result and also a clean sheet when they face Wolfsburg on Wednesday evening.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg topped their group after defeating and eliminating Manchester United from the group stages of the Champions League. They are the favourites to progress to the next round, but they should not ignore Gent's impressive home record.
