Jule Brand redeemed VfL Wolfsburg in front of 7000 spectators

Jule Brand of all people shot VfL Wolfsburg to a hard-fought victory in the Bundesliga at TSG Hoffenheim. The substitute national player, who came to VfL from Hoffenheim in the summer, only scored the winning goal in the 89th minute in the 2-1 (0-1) win in front of 7109 spectators.

Up to the 85th minute Wolfsburg were even behind after a corner was converted directly by Katharina Naschenweng (14th), but then Jill Roord from the Netherlands initiated the late turnaround with her equalizer in the large stadium. “We defended well for 80 minutes,” said goal scorer Naschenweng afterwards Magenta sports. But then you no longer defended consistently enough. In addition to a lack of strength, coach Gabor Gallai also blamed the strong bench of the guests.

After two match days, VfL is provisionally at the top of the table with six points, Hoffenheim is still waiting for the first point. The 19-year-old Brand, who came on as a substitute in the 69th minute, had already hit the crossbar in the 78th minute and thus opened up a final offensive with good opportunities that had previously failed to materialize. Nevertheless, coach Tommy Stroot also saw his team “a good game over the 90 minutes”. “It would be annoying if we hadn’t taken anything here,” he analyzed.

Last season Wolfsburg also had problems in Hoffenheim and even lost – it was the only defeat of the entire season. FC Bayern Munich, the main competitor of the Wolves, can face Werder Bremen (1:00 p.m., Magenta sports) and move up to at least two points.
