A hit against the ex! Thanks to the strong form Daniel Ginczek and Josip Brekalo in the Federal League of Football, Wolfsburg has approached the international ranks. In a duel on a moderate level, the team of trainer Bruno Labbadia fought for the start of the 15th. Game day a earned 2:0 (0:0) at 1. FC Nuremberg and has now collected ten points from the last four games. For the time being, there is only one counter up to table six.
The prominent goalkeeper and ex-Nuremberg Ginczek (58.) and Brekalo (90.+3) scored the hits against the harmless club, which could slip onto a drop-off spot at the weekend. Ginczek has been involved in the last six VfL gates. Since nine games now, coach Michael Cololner’s team has been waiting for the third season victory and was committed to the wolves, but not deadly enough.
“That was very, very important for us today to get us further from below,” Ginczek said at “Eurosport.” VfL-Coach Labbadia said to the development of his team in the previous games: “I am glad we managed to turn the switch.”
The physically superior Wolfsburgers acted prudently in the beginning phase and had the more mature game equipment. Ginczek (4.11.) could have rewarded this early, but failed club goalkeeper Fabian Bredlow. Nuremberg became dangerous only if the strong but sometimes overzealous Virgil Misidjan was involved in the attacks. In the fifth minute, however, Adam Zrelak put an example of Misidjan over the gate.

Club coach Cologne had reacted to the timid performance of last Saturday at FC Bayern (0:3) with four changes. The Franks also had to compensate for the loss of the still wounded captain Hanno Behrens (abdominal muscles) and the loss of Christian Mathenia (knee injury).
VfL Wolfsburg also with luck against the first. FC Nuremberg
The Franks tried to develop a bit more penetrating force than last time, but it was also obvious how limited the ascender is. It will be, for this evening was a new proof, a very stony way to the desired class stay.
Wolfsburg, on the other hand, thinks in other categories and recently had himself in duels with RB Leipzig (1:0), Eintracht Frankfurt (2:1) and the TSG Hoffenheim (2:2) also presented appealingly.
After a reasonable start, however, the lower axles were dismantled. Often only played cross or backwards, there was a lack of pace and aim. Ondrej Petrak (40,41) almost punished this, but once the Nuremberg lacked determination, then some shooting luck.
The 29.604 spectators at Max Morlock Stadium were offered a bit more after the change. First Misidjan (55.) had a promising scene, then Wolf Storm Wout Weghorst (57) met the post. Only a minute later, Ginczek aimed more precisely, following the example of Maximilian Arnold. The alleged compensation by Adam Zrelak (86) was rightly not recognised due to absenteeism.
