A mere four days before Christmas, VfL Wolfsburg will find themselves taking on the current Bundesliga champions as they play their last match before the winter break away to FC Bayern Munich (Saturday 21 December, 15:30 CET). The Green-and-Whites make the journey down to the south of Germany brimming with confidence following two wins and a draw in their last three games in all competitions. VfL head coach Oliver Glasner addressed the media ahead of the match and spoke about…

…the final match of 2019: “Our recent games have given us lots of confidence but at the same time, they’ve taken a lot out of us physically. We’re in a good place at the moment, though, and the team are looking forward to this last away match in Munich. We’re going to go down there and try to make life as difficult as possible for Bayern.”

…his team’s development: “We can see that the lads have made progress in a number of different areas. The main thing is that we’ve upped the pace at which we play and now attack the opposition goal in a very focussed way, trying to keep the ball around their penalty area.”

…team news: “There are currently two players who are a doubt. Wout Weghorst came down with a fever yesterday but he seems a bit better today. We don’t yet know whether he’ll be able to fly to Munich with us or not. Daniel Ginczek was complaining of cold symptoms this morning and again, we’ll see how he comes through the final training session.”

…opponents Bayern Munich: “We will have to be on absolutely top form against Bayern, particularly at the back. They have so many options in attack and cover the whole range of possibilities. In footballing terms, they are capable of anything and everything. On the other hand, Bayern are conceding in almost every match – they are so strong in attack that it makes them susceptible to fast breaks. Our task will be to make better use of the chances that come our way than we did in the last match against Schalke.”
