by Gerry Wittmann

Thank you, Dieter Hecking. The knockout stages of this year’s European competitions have not been kind to Bundesliga clubs, and these last few weeks have been kind of a drag for boosters of Germany’s domestic league.  Only Bayern Munich will represent German football in the quarterfinals of Champions League play, as Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia […]

VfL Wolfsburg finished the Hinrunde in second place behind runaway leaders Bayern Munich, and have continued the season’s restart in fine fashion, capturing seven of a possible nine points early on.  Two stout wins against Bayern and Hoffenheim sandwiched a weaker Wolves’ effort away to Eintracht Frankfurt, a game in which Kevin De Bruyne’s late […]

Luiz Gustavo shines as Wolfsburg rout Schalke

by Cristian Nyari

It was anything but an ordinary win for Wolfsburg.  Their 4-0 win against Schalke on matchday 2 is their biggest in the league in over three years.  The last time they scored four unanswered goals was back in April of 2010 against Hoffenheim.
