VFL Wolfsburg continued the positive trend under Florian Kohfeldt by beating FC Augsburg 1-0 in German League Week 11 on Saturday (6/11) when in another match Arminia Bielefeld claimed her first win of the season .

Hosting Augsburg at the Volkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg won over the visitors with Lukas Nmecha’s lone goal in the 14th minute. The 22-year-old winger managed a cross from Paulo Otavio to tear through Augsburg’s goal which was escorted by goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz.

Lukas’ brother Felix Nmecha almost finished Wolfsburg’s victory in the 82nd minute, unfortunately his shot always went straight into Gikiewicz’s arms. In contrast, Augsburg threatened several times through Andi Zeqiri and Arne Maier but none of their attempts were successful.

In the last 20 minutes, Arminia had at least three good opportunities to add to the margin, but Andres Andrade’s header, Arnos Pieper’s shot and Janni Serra’s strike were all knocked back by the post and the cross bar. The additional three points did not change the position of Arminia, who occupy 17th place with eight points, while Stuttgart (10) slipped to 14th position.

Another game played together saw VfL Bochum win 2-0 at home against TSG Hoffenheim in Vonovia Ruhr. Soma Novothny opened the scoring in the 66th minute before Milos Pantovic completed Bochum’s victory in the seventh minute of added time.
