Freiburg - Wolfsburg hit five in a veritable goal-fest away to Freiburg to maintain their outside chances of a European place come the end of the season.

The home side struck first as an incisive, right-wing move paved the way for Max Kruse to bend an unstoppable effort beyond the reach of the despairing Diego Benaglio, but a Cedrick Makiadi own goal soon had the Wolves back on level terms.

Olic at the double


Vieirinha raised Wolfsburg temperatures with a real candidate for goal of the season ten minutes later - a first-time volley swiftly proceeded by Olic's inventive overhead kick to put the Wolves 3-1 up and mark the first time in 2012/13 that four goals had gone in after just 22 Bundesliga minutes.

Olic took advantage of some lacklustre defending to head home his fifth league goal of the season after the break, but substitute Johannes Flum gave the home side hope with 18 minutes remaining, tapping home from close range after a fine bit of running from Makiadi.

However, that goal proved nothing but a consolation for the hosts as Diego raced away to restore Wolfsburg's three-goal cushion and ensure a sixth win on the road this season at the expense of Freiburg's place in the top six.
