RB Leipzig defeats VfL Wolfsburg in Bundesliga thanks to Nkunku

MWith the ailing Timo Werner as a noble joker, RB Leipzig has secured its first win of the season and coach Domenico Tedesco quiet days. The cup winners defeated VfL Wolfsburg, who are still without a win in the Bundesliga, 2-0 (1-0) on Saturday. In front of 41,243 fans, Christopher Nkunku (5th/90th minute) scored both goals with a hand penalty and then after a pass from Werner.

In the winless summit, the pressure on the coaches was distributed differently. True, both Tedesco and brought Niko Kovac only two draws and one defeat in the first three games. But while Kovac is given time in Wolfsburg, Tedesco has to deliver for the big goal of the Champions League from the start.

Tedesco’s relief should have been enormous when referee Bastian Dankert put his hand to his ear after just three minutes. After a corner from Dani Olmo, Maxence Lacroix, once courted by RB, involuntarily cleared his hand. The Cologne video cellar checked – and Dankert decided on a penalty. Nkunku converted superbly, the third goal in the fourth game.

Wolfsburg too erratic and harmless

The cup winner finally got off to a good start in a game, and then largely avoided the lateral attachments that were often seen under Tedesco. Instead, it was for those suffering from an infection Werner playing André Silva (12th) dangerous with a header, Olmo hit the post and Maximilian Arnold (23rd) tested his goalkeeper Koen Casteels with a risky header return.
