VfL Wolfsburg also remained without a win in the third Champions League game of the season.

At the Austrian series champion Red Bull Salzburg there was a 1: 3 (1: 1) defeat after two draws at the start.

Shooting star Karim Adeyemi had put Salzburg in the lead (3rd minute), Lukas Nmechas (15th) countered Noah Okafor with a double after two corners (65th, 77th).

The Wolfsburg have been waiting for a win for seven competitive games.

Both teams started the game with strikers who won the European Championship title with the German U21 national team in June: While Nmecha, top scorer of the European Championship tournament, represented Wout Weghorst, who was suffering from Corona, in the Wolfsburg attack, A-national player Adeyemi stood in the starting XI of Salzburg.

It was also Adeyemi who was in the spotlight in the first dangerous scene of the game: Wolfsburg's Kevin Mbabu underestimated the speed of the Salzburg rushing behind him, who surprised Mbabu and ran a through pass from Niclas Seiwald.

Free before Koen Casteels, Adeyemi scored his third goal of the current Champions League season (3rd minute).

The goal was the prelude to a Salzburg pressure phase at the beginning of the game, at the end of which Okafor narrowly missed the 2-0 with a crossbar shot (11th).

Three corners to the final score

The Wolfsburg came back into the game through a standard.

Maximilian Arnold brought a corner kick sharply into the six-yard area, where Nmecha extended the ball with his forehead into the far corner and celebrated his first goal in the premier class (15th).

Salzburg defender Maximilian Wöber later prevented the double with a courageous tackle, on the other side Casteels saved the draw in the break with a defensive foot against Luka Sučić (44th).

After changing sides, VfL missed the commitment to the front.

Salzburg also had a hard time during the game, but punished Mark van Bommel's team for their passivity after dormant balls: Okafor used Wolfsburg's weak defensive behavior after corner kicks to score twice (65th, 77th).

Another Adeyemi goal prevented Casteels (85th), but the Bundesliga club did not find its way back into the game.
