After an enthralling Bundesliga opener against Wolfsburg, 2-2 (1-2) was the final score at the Volkswagen Arena. The first half was full of intensity. Werder needed only a few seconds for their first attack. However, Marvin Ducksch couldn’t find the net. Down the other end, Nmecha (11’) used Wolfsburg’s first chance to put them into the lead. Niclas Füllkrug (21’) brought Werder level just ten minutes later, and Leonardo Bittencourt (23’) put them 2-1 ahead just moments after. For the rest of the half, SVW were clearly the better team, but were unable to build on their lead. In the second half, Wolfsburg came into the game more and made it all-square through Guilavogui (84’). The standard remained high for both sides and so SVW and VfL Wolfsburg parted with a point each.
