Wolfsburg’s 4-0 win over Bochum on Saturday, was hard fought at the Volkswagen Arena. Wolfsburg arrived with the intention of improving their league position following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen in their previous game whilst Bochum were able to continue their winning streak after a 2-1 win against Union Berlin in their last match. Wolfsburg are now in 12th place on the table and have 14 points while Bochum sit in 17th with 7 points after 12 matches.

It was an impressive opening from The Wolves, when Felix Nmecha opened the rout in the 27th minute. Wolfsburg then netted once more and increased their lead thanks to a goal from Ridle Baku, 35 minutes in, ending the first half 2-0.

Wolfsburg once more applied the pressure in the second half and were rewarded, when Felix Nmecha found the net once more, 58 minutes in. They then scored again, pulling level thanks to a goal from Jonas Wind, 80 minutes in to make it 4-0.

Substitutions for Wolfsburg included Omar Marmoush, Mattias Svanberg, Jonas Wind, Josip Brekalo and Kilian Fischer for Patrick Wimmer, Felix Nmecha, Lukas Nmecha, Jakub Kaminski and Ridle Baku, respectively. Bochum brought on Silvere Ganvoula, Gerrit Holtmann, Simon Zoller, Tim Oermann and Kostas Stafylidis, to replace Ivan Ordets, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Philipp Forster, Philipp Hofmann and Christopher Antwi-Adjej.

There were bookings for Sebastiaan Bornauw from Wolfsburg, and Dominique Heintz, for Bochum.

Bochum and Wolfsburg will next play away to Borussia Dortmund and Mainz respectively.
