The Wolves on the other hand did not have a good finish in the contest last season. They were only able to finish at the 13th of the league table. This result is not surprising though, because over the past years, they failed to be as impressive. Due to this, they are hopeful to win against a powerhouse team in their opener for a better momentum. Fortunately for the Wolves, they are from a 3-1 win against Rennes on their last match. This gives them the confidence in this match, as it was a comfortable lead for them. Coming into this match, the Wolves are hopeful for the same result here, as they eye to at least improve. However, this squad is currently in shambles, and they cannot afford to lose here. A loss in their opener might be huge for their campaign.

Wolves on the other hand is fortunate that they are a healthy squad, and have no injury-related problems. This is their advantage here, although Matheus Cunha has a minor injury, since their opponents has a lot of injured players.
