HUGE CHANCE FOR HÖLER!

He has to win the game in the final moments after Weghorst's back pass falls straight to him. He doesn't know what to do when one-on-one and in the end the Wolfsburg defence comes back to clear.

CHANCES GALORE... FOR ONE SIDE

A one-sided second half, but the score remains the same. And Wolfsburg are getting a second-wind.

ALMOST A CRAZY GOAL!

Pervan takes his time with a clearance from the back and Höler closes it down, and gets a block on the ball. The Wolfsburg goalkeeper's blushes are saved though as the ball flies over the bar.
80'

HUGE CHANCE ON THE BREAK!

Against the run of play Wolfsburg have a huge chance to win it. Mehmedi sends Roussillon into the box and he plays it across goal with both Weghorst and Steffen waiting, but the ball is hit too hard and neither Wolfsburg men can get a touch.

Somehow the French midfielder doesn't have a debut goal. This time he meets Grifo's corner superbly and powers a header at goal, but it goes straight at Pervan who handles it well.

PERVAN AGAIN!

This time it's Heintz who sends a powerful shot at goal from the edge of the Wolfsburg box. Pervan once again is equal to it though as he parries the ball away to his right.

DO WE HAVE A WINNER IN THIS ONE?

Both sides look capable of finding a goal here in the final 20 minutes, with the home side piling on the pressure at the moment.
69'

SCHMID FIRES OVER

Three dangerous free-kick takes are over this one, with Günter and Grifo joining Schmid on the edge of the Wolfsburg box. It's Schmid to take though, and he curls a shot just over the away side's crossbar.
66'

HÖLER DOING THE HARD YARDS

Freiburg's striker with by far the most duels won so far this evening.

OFF THE POST!

What a moment that would have been for Baptiste Santamaria. The debutant sends a rocket-shot at goal from 25 yards out after a corner had been cleared from the Wolfsburg box. It seems destined for goal, but a finger-tip save from Pervan takes it onto the post. Outstanding save from the Wolfsburg goalkeeper.
62'

GÜNTER HAS A GO!

The Freiburg full-back controls the ball and fires at goal from 20 yards, with Höler looking to get a touch onto it in the box, but the ball drags wide across the Wolfsburg goal.
58'

NO GOAL FOR FREIBURG

Lucas Höler thought he'd put Freiburg back in front, but was offside when Roland Sallai's shot from the edge of the box came in. Höler then mopped up the rebound, only to see the flag raised on the far side.

CHANCES ONCE MORE!

Freiburg enjoying themselves in attack here. Schmid's cross isn't dealt with by Pervan and Günter collects it at the back of the Wolfsburg box. His shot is blocked and the rebound falls to Grifo who can't keep his effort on target.
26'

GRIFO FREE-KICK

The set piece man for Freiburg comes close to scoring from a free-kick just 20 yards from goal. Pervan is down well to his left to make the save.

STORY SO FAR

Wolfsburg have looked lively in attack through Joao Victor, but Nils Petersen's header has Freiburg ahead.

LITTLE TO SEPARATE THESE TWO

LINE-UP NOTE

We forgot to mention a late change to Wolfsburg's team. Koen Casteels pulled up in the warm-ups with a foot injury meaning that Pavao Pervan has come in to start with Lino Kasten taking his place on the bench.

VICTOR AGAIN!

The Brazilian winger weaves his way into the Freiburg box past Lienhart and keeps the ball in play before looking for Malli in the middle. He's working from a tight angle though, and Müller's foot blocks the ball away.
11'

PETERSEN, WHO ELSE!?

Freiburg's magic man in attack does the work once again. He runs to the near post to meet Grifo's corner and flicks the ball beautifully back across goal while on the run, beyond Pervan and into the back of the net.

GINCZEK WITH THE NEXT CHANCE

Malli once again involved as he slides the ball into the path of Ginczek on the run across the edge of the Freiburg box. He works space to shoot, but can't drag his strike on target and hits the ball wide past the Freiburg goal.

VICTOR GETTING GOING

Wolfsburg have the first attempt on goal of the game as Malli sends Victor into the Freiburg box. He sends a powerful strike into the side-netting at the near post of Müller's goal.
