Straight after the 1-1 draw with South Korean side FC Seoul, VfL Wolfsburg played the second friendly at their training camp in Portugal. With a completely different starting line-up, the Green-and-Whites were narrowly beaten 2-1 by Servette. Grejohn Kyei gave the Swiss Super League outfit the lead in the 50th minute with a penalty awarded for handball, but Daniel Ginczek equalised soon after (64‘). With just seconds left on the clock, it was Kyei again who netted the winning goal for Servette.
"Still got work to do"
VfL head coach Oliver Glasner: "Overall, we saw in both games that we've still got some work to do. We were too error-prone and played too slowly. As well as that, we obviously gave away two easy goals. None of us are happy with how we played, so we'll concentrate on the things we can do better and address them over the coming weeks."
It was the Wolves’ final warm-up match before they commence the second half of the Bundesliga season away to 1. FC Köln on Saturday 18 January (kick-off 15:30 CET).
