Wolfsburg coach Oliver Glasner was happy with the point but not the performance after his side were held to a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim on Monday.

Both the goals came in the first half, with Sebastian Rudy firing Hoffenheim ahead after just six minutes but the home side hit back just before half-time as Admir Mehmedi equalised.

Hoffenheim had the better chances to go on and win the game in the second half but could not find a way through and in the end Glasner was just happy to hang on.

The draw means that Wolfsburg remain unbeaten in the Bundesliga although the performance was far from convincing.

“I’m satisfied with a point today but I’m not pleased with the performance,” Glasner said. “We did all right in the first half after a difficult opening. We took control of the game after their early goal and scored a wonderful equaliser.

“In the second half we conceded far too many chances and made too many mistakes. We gifted Hoffenheim possession too often and when your last man loses the ball twice at the end, you have to be happy with the draw.

“In those situations I expect more consistency and responsibility from my players.”

After winning their opening two games of the season, the Wolves have now drawn their last three and sit eighth in the Bundesliga table.

It is all very tight and they are just two points behind Bayern Munich in second and four behind leaders RB Leipzig.
