VfL Wolfsburg coach Mark van Bommel has hinted at changes to his side for tonight's away clash with LOSC Lille in the Champions League.

Van Bommel rotated heavily for Saturday's 2-0 win over Greuther Fürth, with Sebastiaan Bornauw, Yannick Gerhardt, Josuha Guilavogui, Lukas Nmecha and Luca Waldschmidt replacing John Anthony Brooks, Jerome Roussillon, Kevin Mbabu, Renato Steffen and the injured Xaver Schlager in his starting line-up.

And the Dutch coach admits he could make changes again as 'Die Wölfe' prepare to kick off their Champions League campaign tonight.

"Kevin Mbabu and Jerome Roussillon are available, just like last Saturday. We did make changes, and maybe we'll do the same again tomorrow," said van Bommel at the pre-match press conference.

"We're trying to prepare the lads as well as possible so they know what's going on and what the opponents are doing. We'll do everything we can to win the game."
