Half-term report: VfL Wolfsburg

Munich - Ever since VfL Wolfsburg caused the mother of all upsets by lifting the Bundesliga crown in 2009, the question has repeatedly been asked when the Wolves will be a serious challenger again.

Had that question been asked after Matchday 8, there would have been the usual shrug of the shoulders and grunts of negativity. Since then, however, Dieter Hecking's team have not lost a single game, evidently determined to provide the answer to that age-old question by qualifying for Europe this season.
