After losing the cup final, RB Leipzig consoled itself with the runner-up in the Bundesliga. Meanwhile, VfL Wolfsburg has secured the ticket to participate in the Champions League in the coming season.
In the last home game of coach Julian Nagelsmann on Sunday evening, after a significantly better second half, the Saxons won a 2-2 (0-2) against VfL Wolfsburg and are no longer to be displaced from second place in the table before the last matchday.
With 65 points, the club’s own record of 67 points from the 2016/17 season is still achievable for RB. Meanwhile, VfL was also cheering about qualifying for the Champions League, which was previously only theoretically possible from Lower Saxony. It will be the third participation in the premier class for the wolves.
Maximilian Philipp (12th, 45th + 1) had put coach Oliver Glasner’s team in the lead before the break. Justin Kluivert (51st) and captain Marcel Sabitzer (78th, penalty kick) turned the game for RB.
The future Bayern coach Nagelsmann, who had been criticized for his starting eleven in the cup final on Thursday (1: 4), made a significant change against Wolfsburg: All five players substituted against BVB in the second half were used from the start. In total, Nagelsmann made eight changes.
