Wolfsburg were sent off after their home defeat to OSC Lille

Wolfsburg – Too tamed, too hesitant, simply exhausted: Wolfsburg prematurely retired from the stage of European football after a disappointing home defeat. Lower Saxony lost after a poor overall performance against OSC Lille 1:3 (0:1) and winter in neither the Champions League nor the Europa League.

The champions of France set the path to victory early. Burak Yilmaz put his side ahead in the 11th minute. During the whole match, coach Florian Kohfeldt’s team couldn’t really recover from an early disability and they were bid farewell with whistles by the crowd at the Volkswagen Arena after just 45 minutes. Jonathan David (72) and Angel Gomez (78) finally made the decision. Renato Steffen’s goal shortly before the end of (89) to 1:3 means only cosmetic results for VfL.

In his lineup, Kohfeldt came up with a surprise. The football club coach initially left national player Riddle Baku on the bench, but Swiss Kevin Mbabo was in the starting lineup. Although the hosts initially took the lead in front of 6,544 spectators, without Lucas Nemica, nothing was to be seen from the danger.

OSC Lille was immediately impressed

Completely different in Lille: the first designed counterattack put Jocelyn Jorvinek’s team in front. Yilmaz pushed the ball over the goal line after a cross from Jonathan Aykon, helped by a positional error from Aster Franks.

Wolfsburg responded with a long-range shot from Luca Waldschmidt (12th), but found no holes in OSC’s coverage. The French continued to act faster and more and more in control of what was happening a little less than half an hour later. Kohfeldt looked visibly dissatisfied, and kept rummaging through his trouser pockets.

The actions of his subjects had tried very hard, but she was too persistent at this point. And also very stressful, the eleventh table of the French League was able to repeatedly form in time.

VFL Wolfsburg has no chance against OSC Lille

As expected, Kohfeldt reacted to his side’s poor first round, replacing 39-year-old Yannick Gerhardt after the start of the second half with the more offensive Dodi Lukbakio.

But the French remained more dangerous. Acon completed a superb solo goal in the 53rd minute with a shot that was fully defended by Quinn Castells. The Wolfsburg captain is back among the centers after suffering from COVID-19.

And still great care had to be taken, because OSC was now closer to Wolves’ second goal to equalize. In the 62nd minute, the Belgian was lucky because the failed trip from the penalty area had no consequences. A little later, Castells was also defeated.
