Player statistic

Neither team really had the better of the first half and chances were at a premium. Bruno Cesar was moved back in to his favoured CM position for this game and he hit the post from a trademark long range effort on 28 minutes.

Wolfsburg came out quickest after half time and a nice series of passes freed up De Blasis on the right who fired a cross in. Benedetto couldn't miss from 4 yards and Wolfsburg took the lead.

The rest of the half was pretty even with both teams only creating half chances until Newcastle had to push forward in the final minutes. This left room for Werner to gather the ball alone in the area and finish with the outside of the foot to secure the win.
