Oliver Glasner im Gespräch mit seinen Spielern nach Abpfiff der Partie gegen den FC Augsburg.

VfL Wolfsburg struck late to beat Augsburg 2-1 on Saturday, collecting their fourth win from their last five away league matches. The Wolves came on strong in the latter stages of the contest in particular, with Daniel Ginczek coming off the bench to earn Oliver Glasner’s side all three points. The win extends the Green-and-Whites’ unbeaten league run to seven games and lifts them up to sixth in the table, with 39 points from 26 encounters (W10 D9 L7).

Oliver Glasner: “After such a long break, we’re very happy to have started the last part of the season with a win. When you score the winner right at the end there’s perhaps a bit of luck involved, but I think we were the more dangerous team over the 90 minutes. We were a bit fortunate that their second goal was ruled out, but on the whole we controlled the game. I was particularly pleased with our reaction to Augsburg’s disallowed goal because we increased the pressure - Admir Mehmedi struck the post and had a late chance that was brilliantly saved by the Augsburg goalkeeper, so in the end we deserved the three points. We’re very happy about that.”

Tobias Zellner (Augsburg assistant coach): “In the first half we took a while to settle into the game. Wolfsburg were better than us. After the restart we were the more adventurous team and had a very good spell where we equalised and even scored a second, which unfortunately was ruled out. That acted as a wake-up call for VfL. It deflated us a bit, which allowed Wolfsburg to create two very good chances. It seemed to me like we were heading for a draw, but then we were sloppy in wide defensive areas, made a mistake and conceded the crucial goal.”
