Wolves beaten by Lions

VfL lose 1-0 to Braunschweig in warm-up match.

Despite dominating possession and creating the majority of the chances, the Green-and-Whites lost their first friendly of the 2020/21 pre-season. Oliver Glasner’s men fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Eintracht Braunschweig at the AOK Stadion, with Marcel Bär scoring for the newly promoted second-division side seconds after the second half had got under way (46’). Next Saturday, 22 August, Holstein Kiel will be the visitors for the next friendly (kick-off 15.30 CEST) as the Wolves gear up for the new season. This match will also be shown via live stream on Wölfe TV.

“Lacked the cutting edge“

VfL head coach Oliver Glasner: “I’m obviously not happy whenever we lose a match. The commitment levels were OK for the most part, and I thought that in the first half, we did plenty of things that we had been working on in training very well. We pressed forward a lot and created chances. In the second half we didn’t manage to get forward as much and while we had a lot of possession, we lacked the cutting edge up front. I think we’ve still got a lot of work ahead of us.”
