The catch-up of the VfL Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga is stopped. In the third game with Max Kruse, the wolves lost against European Cup candidates TSG Hoffenheim with 1: 2 (1: 0) and cashed for two wins for the first time with their new attacker a bankruptcy.

Max Kruse took a sip of the drinking bottle, shook his head and made no secret from his disappointment. “Overall, I annoys me that we have lost. We wanted to enter the third victory and have a quiet week,” said the new leaders of the VFL Wolfsburg after the unnecessary 1: 2 (1: 0) against Champions League-Aspirant TSG Hoffenheim.

Until the 73rd minute, the Lower Saxony led 1: 0, but instead of the possible 2-0, the wolves almost in turn began compensation. “We have to look good for over 90 minutes, not just 73 minutes,” the ex-Union professional weathered.

His team is not attentive in two crucial scenes, “and did not have been cold-cutting at the front. The opportunity recycling was not good today,” said Kruse, which has so far been something like the success guarantor of the Wolfsburg in the last games. “We have been bitterly punished,” said VfL-sport director Marcel Schäfer.

Wolfsburg went through a worth seeing Schlenzer from Newcomer Jonas Wind (36.). But the substitute Jacob Bruun Larsen passed through sidewayers (74th) and the Corona Genesen Andrej Kramaric (78th) turned the game in the final phase in favor of Hoffenheimer.

“I’m very glad that I could come in and make the difference,” said the Bruun Larsen in the 70th minute at SKY. The fact that Kramaric hit him was particularly pleased: “You did not see that he was quarantined. We can rely on him.”

The Kraichgauer landed her second success in a fight against each other in the fight for the Champions League, the team of coach Sebastian Hoeneß at least temporarily passed from RB Leipzig and is currently fourth.

Both teams provided a male game before 7145 spectators in Wolfsburg, in which the hosts initially provide the sound. With the self-confidence of last two victories, the coach Florian Kohfeldt launched unchanged Wolfsburg team with a lot of tempo compared to the Frankfurt game (2: 0).

Wolves earns front, TSG long harmless

Although Kruse and Co. recovered, despite great effort and a lot of possession of possession, hardly earned in the form of chances of chances, but the leadership deserved ten minutes before the break.

The Hoffenheimer, where Topangreifer Andrej Kramaric could play again after his second corona infection, on the other hand, were surprisingly passive. From the game, hardly a bit went forward in the first section, so the biggest chance came to a standard situation.

Bruun Larsen comes and meets – Kramaric ice cold

After a free-kick from the center line, Ihlas Bebou suddenly came in freestanding. However, his first attempt saved Maximilian Arnold just before the line, then the TSG striker shot over (13.).

In the second section then the guests took over the command. Wolfsburg was now far into one’s own half – and was punished in the final phase twice.

First, Bruun Larsen hit five meters with a sidewayer, Kramaric pressed a Bruun Larsens flank from a short distance across the line. The largest VFL chance to compensate for Hoffenheim’s Keeper Oliver Baumann as he parried a wind header class (81.).
