In a pulsating clash marked by tough challenges, ten-man VfL secured a deserved 2-2 draw at Union Berlin on Sunday. Despite Maximilian Arnold’s red card, the Green-and-Whites showed character to claim a point.

Oliver Glasner: “We were well in the game in the opening stages but Union then started to exert more control, were stronger in the tackles and got their two strikers in the game, forcing the equaliser as a result. After the red card and after we fell behind it was a very different game. My players deserve great credit for the character they showed. The fact we were able to fight back shows that we’re settled and have a very good team spirit. Looking at the 90 minutes as a whole we deserved the point.”

Urs Fischer: “We had the first big opportunity to take the lead, but Wolfsburg had the game under control for the ten to 15 minutes after that. We then took a 2-1 lead and had a man advantage, but I wasn’t too happy with the next phase of the game. We should have done better and been more clinical. In the end I’m happy with the point.”
