Borussia Moenchengladbach - Wolfsberger AC 0: 4 (0: 3)

Borussia Mönchengladbach had nothing to oppose the third of the Austrian league, especially in the first half. Three goals were already scored before the break: the lead was scored by Shon Weissmann already after 13 minutes, Mario Leitgeb (31st minute) and Marcel Ritzmaier (41) increased.

The Gladbach fans, who still hoped for a turn, were disappointed after the break. The Wolfsberg AC put even a fourth goal: After a corner headed Leitgeb the ball in the angle (68th). Many Gladbach fans left the stadium prematurely at this time.

Noteworthy: For the guests from Austria, it was the first European match in history - qualification matches except. In the 2015/2016 season, the team had lost in the third qualifying round against Borussia Dortmund. For the Gladbacher it was the highest home defeat in their European Cup history.

VfL Wolfsburg - PFK Oleksandrija 3: 1 (2: 0)

The VfL presented itself clearly sovereign than the Borussia. Against the opponent from Ukraine, the Wolfsburg made a comfortable lead before the break - with a double strike: Only Maximilian Arnold scored in the 20th minute, the 1-0, four minutes later Admir Mehmedi managed the second VfL goal.

After the break, the Wolfsburg had to first digest a setback. Eugene Banada struck the ball to hit the goal (66 '). However, the VfL fans did not have to shiver for a long time. Not even a minute later Josip Brekalo was able to restore the old gap.
