VfL terrifyingly harmless
Bayer has now rejoined the international places after four league games without a win. At Wolfsburg, on the other hand, the negative trend is continuing. For the hosts it was the seventh competitive game without a win in a row. Three days after the 1: 3 defeat in the Europa League versus KAA Ghent presented it team by Oliver Glasner terrifyingly weak and harmless. However, Bayer was not much better. Both teams were obviously the "English Week" in the bone.
Broken first half
In a ragged first half, Bayer was the more committed and stronger battle team, Even before his first goal Bellarabi could have hit, but pulled the ball just past the left goal post (6). scorer Wout Weghorst missed the possible lead for the VfL in the 23rd minute.
Havertz injured out
After the break, the Wolfsburg were a bit more agile. Leverkusen rested in this phase too much on the leadership, had to also rearrange. In the 42nd minute, Kai Havertz had to leave the field prematurely with thigh problems, Bellarabi remained in the cabin after half-time break.
Wolfsburg Fehlpass Festival
But the Wolfsburg could not capitalize on this. By miserable flanks and templates as well as bad passes en masse VfL made life difficult for itself. In a counterattack Nadiem Amiri (56.) missed the preliminary decision for Leverkusen.
Weghorst missed the compensation
In the final stages, the Werkself moved completely on counter and otherwise managed the result. What would have been almost punished: Weghorst had the equalizer on the foot (81.), but brought a slightly deflected ball from eight meters not in goal. Paulinho made the final result after a nice counterattack in injury time.
Wolfsburg plays after the international break on Saturday (23.11.2019) at 15.30 clock at Eintracht Frankfurt. The Werkself receives the same at the same time SC Freiburg.
