VfL Wolfsburg: Not losers

That Oliver Glasner would change a lot in Wolfsburg was clear at an early stage. The biggest change, however, is now only visible: Glasner has canceled the loss of the Wolfsburg Football Bundesliga! Yesterday 1-0 (0-0) against the newly promoted Union Berlin may have been tiring in the long run – but it was successful. Even after ten competitive matches under Glasner in Wolfsburg, no one still knows how the Austrians actually react to defeats. Because there were none, not even in eight VfL friendly games this season.

A win against a newcomer from the capital, for which a shot by Wout Weghorst after a nice pass from Joker Joseph Brekal was enough for 27,100 spectators, catapulted VfL crazy game day to second place on the table. And whoever reads this table has very quickly discovered why VfL is not a loser (because the only Bundesliga team is still undefeated) this season: There are 4 four league goals in the goals column, so there are not many of them.

Individual Review: VfL Wolfsburg – 1.FC Union Berlin

Paul Pervan: I had to hold the ball for the first time after 25 minutes. He swung a little in the penalty area in the second half. Otherwise he had a quiet afternoon – Score: 3.


Arnold: "Second place is great!"

Few goals, no defeat – it creates the mood. "It's not obvious that you're undefeated in mid-October," VfL coach Oliver Glasner said. "You don't have that often throughout your career." And Maximilian Arnold was happy too: "Table two is cool. There is nothing like being undefeated, It gives confidence. Out of that confidence we also win games that are in balance. "

Against the Union was such a game – in which VfL was a little behind, but also a lot left wrong. Here, too, helps to review the season statistics: ten goals have been fired by only VfL, this is the Bundesliga midfielder, in each of the last five league games he has met Wolfsburg exactly once in each. I: Eight of the ten goals included either Brekalo or Weghorst (or both), the other two Arnolds.

"That's right in Austria. The rose is before Glasner …"

On Sunday it was Weghorst and Brekalo again, this time just a joker. The team knows what they have about their two naked producers. Defender Robin Knoche: "Everyone brings their quality to the field. Wout profits in the end and they have to take advantage of the opportunities. It works so well so far. Joseph has also done well."

Previously, VfL had quite a few opponents with manageable qualities, and none of the previous opponents are currently in the top half of the table. This also helps with good balance. After international break break – including twice Leipzig (league and cup), Dortmund, Leverkusen. Opponents, against which it is useful if you can play with your chest wide. Captain Josuha Guilavogui: "As it is now, the team is doing very well. We have to enjoy it and it has to give us confidence for the top matches!"

Almost VfL even went through the international break as a champion. but Gladbach has another point. Borussia brought in a coach from the first league of Austria before the season. "The table doesn't matter to us," Glasner says, "but I received a WhatsApp message from a friend who wrote: It's like in Austria – The Rose before Glasner … "
