Following large portions of time without a victory with the Florian Kohfeldt, Wolfsburg stunned Bayern Leverkusen away from home collecting three crucial points that only had Wolfsburg fired up for the Champions League game in midweek. Against top-of-the-table RB Salzburg, Wolfsburg was able to handle themselves goals from Baku, and Lucas nmecha saw them win their second straight game. They returned home to host Augsburg at the Volkswagen Arena, hoping to only build on the momentum that they had created over the last week trying to make up ground in the table. As poorly as they have been as of late, three points would have taken them back into the Champions League places that seemed like an improbable winless streak. Wolfsburg started smoothly putting a significant amount of pressure on the backline; their creativity coming from the wing seemed particularly valuable. Wolfsburg eventually broke through with the man of the moment Lucas nmecha with a beautiful header finding the back of the net to give Wolfsburg 1-0 lead. He has stepped up as of late as now the wolves proving they don’t have to rely on Wout Weghorst solely. They handle themselves exceptionally well; after going in front multiple times in the first half, they could have even increased their lead as they had control keeping Augsburg at a distance. The visitors came forward attempting to break them down; the Wolfsburg missed chances didn’t seem like it was going to come back to haunt them as they were able to handle whatever Augsburg tried to throw at them Konan Casteels occasionally being thrown into action to make an important save they held a 1-0 lead going into the second half and just kept pushing the tempo getting in those dangerous areas and spaces very regularly will not giving anything up on the other end Wolfsburg defensively really starting to look the way they did at the start of the season as they hold a narrow 1-0 victory as they collect all the points to win their third straight game. Wolfsburg is back in the Champions League places as Wolfsburg shutout Augsburg Lukas nmecha goal was enough as the wolves go into the International break riding momentum.
After preparations and predictions, the match got underway in Wolfsburg as we had for the international break momentarily before that Wolfsburg welcomes Augsburg to the Volkswagen Arena as the wolves look to build on their performance in the Champions League on Wednesday. Wolfsburg was heavily in control since the start of the game; they got into those dangerous areas early, and it wasn’t going to be long before they took advantage of it. In the 14th minute, following a brilliant run from Octavio Lukas nmecha was making a run into the box across came from the left side with the German international making connection through the air getting on the end of it as his header cuts through the top corner to get Wolfsburg a 1-0 lead. It would be the sixth goal of the season for Lukas nmecha scoring in his third consecutive game. Only to add more Agony on an Augsburg team that seems to be struggling this season. Not long after, Wolfsburg got into a dangerous position again as a Lukas nmecha was the supplier, this time sending a brilliant through-ball inside to Octavio striking from point-blank range, coming very close but missing to the left. Augsburg attempted to test Casteels as Arnie Maier hit the deck from Deep, but the Belgium goalkeeper managed to grab it without difficulty, with this strike only sting in his hands. Wolfsburg continues to look dangerous. Near the half-hour mark, coming clothes twice as Max Arnold came close coming from a free-kick just a little high landing on the top of the net. Moments later, John Brooks hit a beautiful ball into the box as Sebastian Bornauw got his head on the end of it; the center-back should have done better in what could have been a second goal, but instead, it missed to the right. Near the end of the first half Daniel Caligiuri had a pair of cancer a strike coming from a free-kick that missed the mark, then two minutes looking for the long strike again, this time Casteels having to extend to make a great save. Late changes from a Max Arnold and riddle Baku and the first half as Wolfsburg maintained a 1-0 lead thanks to Lukas Nmecha.
A very promising first-half from Wolfsburg has them in front, thanks to Lukas Nmecha. In the second half, Augsburg opened up a little bit, but Wolfsburg remained to have the momentum. At the very start of the second half, Andi Zeqiri looked to take advantage of the visitors as he hit a powerful shot from close; however, Casteels made a sliding save to alleviate the situation. Wolfsburg had to go to the bench because of injury to Sebastian Bornauw; coming in to replace him would be Mickey van de ven as the twenty-year-old makes his Bundesliga debut. Also, lukebakio comes in for Renato Steffen. Augsburg tried to chip away at that lead with another couple of chances coming from Nicholas Dorsch missing from Beach following a corner. Then Florian Niederlechner came close, putting his head through a cross from Peterson but hooked to the right. Essentially Wolfsburg just closed them down defensively and let them come to them. Felix Nmecha and Kevin Mbabu came in for Wolfsburg. With eight minutes to go, Felix attempted to join his brother on the score sheet, but the keeper denied his strike from inside the box. Late in the game, the Augsburg goalkeeper pushed forward and was caught off guard as Wolfsburg was running in numbers with the following open despite having a look. They botched it but nonetheless, the final whistle blew as the header from Lukas Nmecha was enough to see the game out as Wolfsburg when their second Bundesliga game in a row and return to the top four.
All of a sudden, Wolfsburg are back to their best. Ever since the inclusion of the new manager, they have back-to-back clean sheets in the Bundesliga and picked up an essential three points in the Champions League in midweek. It is unclear what to make of the situation so far; it’s been very promising, and despite the pessimism regarding Wolfsburg Florian Kohfeldt so far, it has worked out quite well. Even though his winning percentage is not all that promising, he seems to have found his Niche with this Wolfsburg team. It is very early into his tenure he’s only been in charge for three games, but it seems like he’s making a difference immediately. Wolfsburg has one of the best defenses in the league. Still, for whatever reason, there was some disconnect after they won their first four Bundesliga games they were really struggling for points which is ultimately why they let go of Marco van Bommel; honestly, it was a ridiculous and harsh decision, but the replacement has come in got 6 points out of 6 in the Bundesliga has Wolfsburg within a couple of points the top of the group in the Champions League with a big victory against Salzburg now they seem like a Champions League team once again. It’s a little too early to tell if this will be sustainable. Wolfsburg collectively wants to put on a good showing for the new manager, and everything seems to be clicking right now; there’s no doubt about that, but the jury is still out despite the hot start. Defensively they are much more organized attack is opening up as we’re seeing creativity in the squad that wasn’t there a few weeks ago; the hope is they can use this and continue to push and get the Wolves back playing at their best however it has only been three games, and we could be suffering from the prisoner of the moment if they’re still playing like this in the next three or four games then I think the question basically answers itself there’s been nothing negative to say about the way they have played since he’s taking over. Still, I think there’s a little more time that we need to see what this wolves team really can be with him at the helm. Lukas Nmecha had a slow start to the season. Still, it’s heating up rapidly quickly scored against Bayern Leverkusen scored the winner against Salzburg scores the only goal against Augsburg he has scored in three straight games and even he was playing very well but couldn’t find it back in the net now that he is scoring so regularly it will only build into this Wolfsburg team but doesn’t have to rely on one player solely. Outstanding performance with a superb header, and he is only growing with confidence if Wout Weghorst can return to his form from last season; this Wolfsburg attack can be much more dangerous now that he is getting support from the German youngster Augsburg may not be the most hazardous or antagonizing team. Still, I’ll tell you what Wolfsburg picking up points again with another clean sheet will only insist the belief back into the squad; this is an outstanding team from top to bottom Champions League Ambitions are very achievable if they keep this going.
