Divock Origi scored his maiden Bundesliga goal for Wolfsburg but it was not enough to secure all three points as the Wolves were held to a 1-1 draw with Werder Bremen.

Wolfsburg 1-1 Bremen

Goals: 1-0 Origi (28'), 1-1 Bartels (56')

Having a new head coach on the touchline appeared to instill greater urgency into Wolfsburg's play and they were more purposeful going forward than they had been in recent games. It was an evenly-contested match for the most part until Paul-Georges Ntep's superb cross from the left was met in the middle by on-loan striker Divock Origi, who scored his first goal for the Wolves from close range.

Bremen were much better in the second half, showing more aggression and determination in midfield and not allowing their hosts as much time on the ball. It was not long before they were on level terms when Fin Bartels headed in expertly from Thomas Delaney's cross. Indeed, the visitors looked the most likely to grab a winner, with Theodore Gebre-Selassie going within inches on two occasions. There was to be no late drama, however, and the draw was a fair result on the balance of play.
