RB Leipzig – VfL Wolfsburg 2: 0: Relief thanks to Nkunku: Leipzig achieves a premiere victory

Liberation for the supposed Bayern hunter: RB Leipzig ended its mini-crisis at the start of the season with the first win on the fourth matchday of the Bundesliga. Thanks to an early goal, the DFB Cup winner beat the still unsuccessful VfL Wolfsburg 2-0 (1-0) and thus gave his coach Domenico Tedesco breathing space.

“Footballer of the Year” Christopher Nkunku shot the Champions League participant with a hand penalty after video evidence (5th) and with his second goal (90th) to victory. After only two points before the first round of the cup on Tuesday (8.46 p.m. / ZDF and Sky) at the same location against the regional league team Teutonia Ottensen, there should be some calm.

VfL, who set their negative start record of 21 years ago with just two points from four games, are facing an uncomfortable week.

Compared to the 1: 2 at Union Berlin, Tedesco had changed his team in two positions: national players Marcel Halstenberg and Andre Silva pushed Josko Gvardiol and star returnee Timo Werner to the bench. In addition, Janis Blaswich again represented the ailing goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi.

At VfL, the recently criticized offensive player Max Kruse was allowed to start for the first time this season. “With Max we have someone who takes matters into his own hands,” said coach Niko Kovac on the Sky microphone.
