The winter new entrants Max Kruse (24./35./45.+2 Minute) and Jonas Wind from Denmark (8./42.) In the Football Bundesliga on Friday for a clear reaction to the heart defeat few days before. “This is a task that the coaches or others have to evaluate why that’s the way,” Kruse said the “NDR” to the question of the different faces: “That we can bring football performance in the place, I think that’s what is out of the question. We have to get it to play every week with this mission, which we have shown against Bielefeld at home and we have shown today. “

The Wolfsburg survive an incentive season. After good performances, partly only difficult exploits follow. “With everything we go through at the moment or how crappy the season was. Such games are not allowed to happen,” Kruse said about the defeats against Augsburg (0: 3) and Dortmund. “The more important was the reaction today.”

With the first real scorchy of the wolves, wind brought one of Lukas Nmecha to the post steered and bounced to the Danen shot effortlessly in the gate. Then Jonathan Burkardt failed on the opposite side alone before VfL goalkeeper Koen Castels. Mainz had weakened by the Red Map of Niklas Tauer after a emergency brake in the penalty area early itself. Kruse transformed the penalty of the point from the point and headed his hat trick.

Kruse: “The football god was on our page”

“We do not have to take care of it. If we get the 1: 1 at the back of eleven against eleven in the square, then maybe it will be another game,” Kruse said. “Today the football god was on our side. And now we try to get the sack next week in Stuttgart.” Because calculated, the VfL does not have the class yet secure.

This now moves into tangible proximity. With a victory next matchday at the relegation battle competitor VFB Stuttgart, the wolves can secure the league. “I absolutely want to get this a victory, so that we are synonymous mathematically in the league. If we made this, then of course we will talk about how we want to have another claim to a season next year for a season at VfL Wolfsburg and Should, “said Kohfeldt.

While the Wolfsburgs had to deal even more intensively with the relegation fight, the Mainz – with 39 points two counters in front of the VFL – can not build on the achievements of the good round. Since five games, the Rheinhessen are waiting for a victory.

Especially the desastrous first half liked MAINZ coach Bo Svensson at all: “It was an absolute impudence in all areas in the first half. This has nothing to do with Bundesliga football or Bundesliga level,” he said after the game: “That’s very bitter, we must already discuss that internally.”
