The VfL Wolfsburg is placed as high in the Bundesliga table as long ago. Thanks to a 1: 0 (0: 0) success over the 1st FC Union Berlin VfL climbed to second place after seven matchdays. Before Bayern, ahead of Borussia Dortmund - that would probably have expected the least. Goal scorer Wout Weghorst scored the only goal of the day after 68 minutes.
The Wolfsburg were in the initial phase quite dominant, but there were hardly real scoring opportunities. This remained the case for almost the entire first half, only in two headball situations by William and João Victor there was danger before the Union goal. On the other hand, the guests worked their way into the game, but offensively did not do much with them either. Accordingly, both teams went with a 0-0 in the cabin.
Even after the change, the game was dominated by midfield scenes, it remained a weak Bundesliga match. The playful superiority of Wolfsburg was recognizable only in a few moments. Union fought well, the Berlin did what they could expect of them.
After 55 minutes referee Bastian Dankert decided after a duel in the penalty area on penalty for Wolfsburg, he had wanted to see a foul on Weghorst. The decision, however, he took back after intervention by the video evidence because of a previously unsuccessful alleged Wolfsburg handball back. That was the biggest upset in the game until then.
Union was by no means inferior in the further course. Christian Gentner, who became German champion with Wolfsburg in 2009, scored with a header VfL keeper Pavao Pervan. But the hosts were smarter. In the 68th minute Weghorst was served by substitute Brekalo, the Dutchman remained ice cold and turned to the lead.
As a result, the game was alive, even before both gates did more, but it remained at 1-0. Wolfsburg is the first pursuers of Borussia Mönchengladbach in the international break, Union is with five points Table-14.
