Bundesliga: Wolfsburg also shines against Hertha

Status: 01/24/2023 11:02 p.m.

VfL Wolfsburg took the next gallop victory at the start of 2023. The “Wolves” were already leading 3-0 at half-time against a completely overwhelmed Hertha side.

Mattias Svanberg gave Wolfsburg the advantage on Tuesday (01/24/23) after a cross from Patrick Wimmer from the right with a nice direct reception from a dozen meters (4th). Maximilian Arnold converted from a hand penalty (31st). Just three minutes later, Jonas Wind also put Wolves’ third shot into the box on Hertha keeper Oliver Christensen.

Hertha coach Sandro Schwarz explains why he still has faith in his team despite the utter failure against Wolfsburg.

Ridle Baku also entered the list of top scorers almost 20 minutes from the end (73rd). Omar Marmoush, who only came into play in the 78th minute, scored Wolfsburg’s next convincing result with a fine dribble just before the end of the match (86th, 5-0).

“I wish the club out of there. My heart is in Hertha.”said Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac, extremely satisfied with his team’s performance, “It was a round performance in an away game.”

“Wolves” again with great hunger

Three days after the 6-0 thrashing at Freiburg, Wolves again showed a thirst for goals. And again Wimmer was involved in the first goal – this time not as a goalscorer, but as an assist provider. The Austrian youngster served a free-kick from the right side, placed deep in the penalty area, where Svanberg came off the corner and rammed into the hosts’ goal down the left.

Good luck Roger

There was excitement in the Olympic Stadium after about half an hour when Agustín Rogel, as the last man, brought down Wimmer, who was rushing towards the Berlin goal, with a body check. The home team’s fans demanded a dismissal, but referee Tobias Reichel left him with a yellow card. Arnold wanted to throw the free kick that was due over the wall, but Dodi Lukébakio, part of the Berlin Wall, raised his arm much too high and clearly deflected the ball: penalty. Arnold executed a powerful half-climb on the right.

Barely three minutes later, the bell rang again in the Berlin penalty area: after losing the ball, Svanberg continued to deflect the ball towards Wind, who gave the Hertha Christensen goalkeeper no chance with a well-considered lob .

Black switches – at first with relative success

Hertha coach Sandro Schwarz made three changes in the second half of the match: Rogel, Maximilian Mittelstädt and Ivan Šunjić had to make way. The calculation worked insofar as not only no further first-class goalscoring opportunities were allowed by Lower Saxony, but also the own intensity was brought to a new level. However, only one great scoring opportunity resulted from Berlin’s efforts when Filip Uremović lacked precision with a header (65th).

Sixth consecutive win at Wolfsburg

The “Wolves” were different: when attacked from the left, the “old lady” could not grab the ball, Svanberg crossed the penalty area on the right side, where Baku burst and stolen completed with a straight dish. In the final phase, Marc-Oliver Kempf artistically saved with a high leg from a header by Luca Waldschmidt, who had just been substituted. But it was then that Marmoush scored the last point of a fine individual performance (86′).

VfL Wolfsburg fought their way to sixth in the table with their sixth straight line, while Hertha continued to survive in second-to-bottom place.
