Wolves blow Leipzig's house down
Wolfsburg take a fine three points off Leipzig with Jonas Wind and Rogério goals either side of Yussuf Poulsen's leveller. The result lifts the Wolves to eighth. Leipzig drop to fifth.
Xavi fires over
Another Leipzig chance for Xavi as the ball breaks to him at the edge of the box, but he can't steer his effort under the crossbar.
Wolfsburg's second-half substitute Kevin Paredes looks to curl one but Blaswich plucks it out of the air.
Schlager gets around the back and squares for Openda but Casteels is well-positioned to make the stop.
Leipzig go close
Xavi fizzes the ball across the face of goal and Cédric Zesiger gets a toe on it to clear the danger.
What a hit!
Wolfsburg retake the lead through Rogério! Wind helps the ball onto the Brazilian who rifles home beyond Blaswich. The left-back's shot was more than 100km/h.
Openda spins off the shoulder of the last defender again and tries to chip Casteels, but his effort drifts wide.
Casteels to the rescue!
Leipzig should have made it 2-1 after Openda and Xavi combined to slip in Poulsen for a gilt-edged chance, but Casteels is off his line in a flash to save.
Openda has another crack from close range but Casteels gets down well to save. He's looking lively...
Openda breaks the offside trap and squares for Poulsen, who is left with a simple finish for 1-1.
Chance for Poulsen
Raum sends another cross in from the left but Yussuf Poulsen fails to connect properly.
Benjamin Henrichs finds space at the back post but Rogério throws himself at the danger to keep Wolfsburg in front. Amadou Haidara then forces a fine save from Casteels.
Loïs Openda goes down in the box under pressure from Sebastiaan Bornauw but there was no contact from his Belgian compatriot and he instead earns a yellow card.

Xavi Simons whips in a free-kick but there is just too much on it for Christoph Baumgartner to get a toe on it.
Loïs Openda bursts into the box and drills in a low effort from a tight angle, but Koen Casteels is equal to it.
Wind puts Wolfsburg in front!
Svanberg puts a fine cross in for Jonas Wind who heads home the opener. Blaswich got a hand to it but perhaps should have done better. That's Wind's ninth goal this season.
Wolfsburg go close!
Lovro Majer's shot is blocked at the last and moments later Mattias Svanberg's top corner-bound shot is saved by Janis Blaswich!
This time Simakan meets a corner with a header, but the result is also over the crossbar.
David Raum's floated free-kick finds an unmarked Mohamed Simakan at the back post but the Leipzig defender volleys over before the flag goes up against him.
