VfL Wolfsburg return to Bundesliga action on Sunday 8 November when they host TSG Hoffenheim at the Volkswagen Arena at 15:30 CET. The Green-and-Whites are aiming to register their second win of the season on Matchday 7, which would ensure they go into the upcoming international break with their unbeaten league record firmly intact. After watching his side battle to a 1-1 draw at Hertha Berlin last time out, Glasner is optimistic and feels his team “stand a good chance” of emerging victorious on Sunday.

At Friday’s pre-match press conference, the VfL boss spoke to the media about…

…personnel: “Daniel Ginczek hasn’t trained yet this week and will miss the game. Jerome Roussillon was back in training for the first time today, he’s a minor doubt. Yunus Malli was also involved in his first session today but gave a clear indication that he’s ready. I’m very confident with Yunus and Jerome.”

…the Wolves’ attack: “We’ve shown in a lot of games that we’re capable of creating chances – including clear-cut ones. It’s my job to find solutions with the lads to score the goals we need to get a win.”

…VfL’s game plan: “Hoffenheim have always operated in a 3-5-2 formation lately. They’re technically gifted, they set themselves apart with the quality of their football and they have very attacking wide players, which gives you space from time to time. Sometimes they have six or seven players in the opposition penalty area. On the one hand it’s difficult to defend against, but on the other you’re given space in attack. We need to make good use of those spaces and move the ball quickly. The most important thing is performing to a high standard in attack and having players who assert themselves and make the right decisions.”
