VfL head coach Bruno Labbadia is currently without a total of seven players from his professional squad, due to the last round of international games during the current season. The rest of the team are still hard at work in Wolfsburg, preparing for the closing-phase of the Bundesliga season. For those who have remained with the Green-Whites, the schedule includes a test-friendly this coming Thursday afternoon (kick-off 18:30 CET) in Berlin against second division 1. FC Union in the Stadion An Der Alten Försterei‘.
Comebacks for Camacho and Uduokhai?
The test in the capital ahead of the season run-in will provide Labbadia with the opportunity to try some different things out and get an overview of the fitness level of his men. That applies particularly to the long-term injured, such as Ignacio Camacho and Felix Uduokhai, who will have the opportunity, when only briefly, to gathered some match-practice. Generally, the Wolves will be using the first week of the international break to increase the training intensity. "We are in the middle of an intensive week of training, with the friendly game tomorrow providing the highlight. We will be up against a good second-flight side, who will be highly motivated against a Bundesliga opponent in their own stadium. It’s good for us to face a challenge at this level," noted Labbadia.
