A win for Wolfsburg would see them two points in front of Everton and qualified from the group with a trip away to Lille remainig. Wolfsburg would also qualify with a draw if Lille failed to beat Krasnodar in Russia. A defeat would see Wolfsburg unable to win the group having dropped four points behind Everton. Wolfsburg are currently 2nd place in the league and are unbeaten at home (Bundesliga and Europa League) this season (W6 D2). Wolfsburg average three goals a game in the league, scoring on average twice a match.
Possible Line ups
Everton have the opportunity to progress to the knock-out stages with all three possible outcomes to the result. If Everton avoid defeat then they will qualify with a game to spare and a win would secure Everton's place at the top the group. Should Everton lose then they will qualify if Lille draw in Krasnodar. The blues have conceded just two goals in the competition so far and apart of the 12 teams unbeaten in the group stages so far. Everton have lost just one of their eight away matches (Premier League and Europa League) this season (W2 D5).
