Wolfsburg, Berlin reap wins in German Bundesliga

Dec 8 2013, 9:50pm CST | by IANS

Berlin, Dec 9 (IANS) Wolfsburg cruised to a 3-0 away victory at Freiburg to extend their unbeaten run to seven games whereas Berlin inflicted bottom side Braunschweig the 11th loss of the season to close the 15th round.

Berlin, Dec 9 — Wolfsburg cruised to a 3-0 away victory at Freiburg to extend their unbeaten run to seven games whereas Berlin inflicted bottom side Braunschweig the 11th loss of the season to close the 15th round.

The "Wolves" climbed from sixth to fifth position recording their eighth win. Freiburg wait for their first win on home soil, sitting on 16th place, to remain caught in the drop zone of the Bundesliga, Xinhua reported Sunday.

The host staged the worst possible start as Wolfsburg ensured a quick start making it 2-0 within 11 minutes. Patrick Ochs' cross from the right wing found youngster Maximilian Arnold, who tapped in his fifth goal of the season, eight minutes into the game.

The visitors capitalized on an turnover as Luiz Gustavo teed up for Ivica Olic, who doubled the lead thanks to Freiburg' s porous defence three minutes later.

Wolfsburg nearly tripled the lead through Ivica Olic and Slobodan Medojevic but Freiburg were lucky in their misfortune.

After the restart Freiburg tried to respond but all their opportunities remained short on accuracy. However, things worsened for the hosts as the "Wolves" clinically added a third goal to their lead through Marcel Schaefer at the stoppage time.

"With the restart we tried everything but if you start a game the way we did, you have no chance to win against teams like Wolfsburg," Freiburg coach Christian Streich said.

Elsewhere, Berlin closed the gap to the top six as Adrian Ramos and Tolgay Cigerci donated the goals to the 2-0 triumph over last positioned and newly promoted Braunschweig.

Adrian Ramos headed home the opener with 20 minutes on the clock following a free kick cross by Ronny.

Braunschweig lacked in penetration therefore "Hertha" were able to kill the game 10 minutes before final whistle.

Ronny was again in the thick of things when he passed into path of Cigerci, whose right-footed effort beat onrushing Daniel Davaria into the far post corner.
