VfL produced a second-half fightback to earn themselves a point at Union Berlin on Sunday afternoon. The Green-and-Whites showed immense character to salvage a deserved draw, which closes the gap to the sixth and final Europa League qualification spot to just a single point.

The game was overshadowed by further protests against the DFB and Hoffenheim president Dietmar Hopp. Referee Bastian Dankert was forced to interrupt proceedings on two occasions before the interval.

Oliver Glasner: “We’re very pleased with the point. We had a tough European game in Malmö three days ago, and when you’re trailing 2-0 here in Berlin it’s very difficult. My team recovered, pulled a goal back and kept attacking. At the end they weren’t just satisfied with a point, they wanted to win the game. After the tough schedule we’ve had I’m very happy with the point.”

Urs Fischer: “The draw is a fair reflection of the game. I think it’s an important point in the end, against a very strong opponent. Wolfsburg tried everything, but my team reacted well. The first half was a real tactical battle and both teams cancelled each other out. Set-pieces were crucial today. It’s a valuable draw for us.”
