Head-to-Head

Head-to-Head: Bas Dost (Wolfsburg) vs Anthony Martial (Man United)
8th December 2015

Manchester United travel to Germany to take on Wolfsburg in a crucial Champions League clash on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils will most likely need a win to advance to the last-16, so they will be relying on French star Anthony Martial to end his eight-match goal drought.

However, at the other end, they will have to keep out the Bundesliga side’s top scorer, Bas Dost, if they are to sneak out of the group stage and avoid the Europa League.

Here are how the two sides’ super strikers have fared in Europe this season….
