Both Bundesliga teams tied 3-3 in a very emotive match that ended up being decided in the last minutes of the game.
Freiburg and Wolfsburg showed great quality football today, as they tied 3-3 in Saturday’s German Bundesliga fixture.
The game felt strange to both team’s coaches, but at the end of the match, they spoke on how great this game was for fans.
“Both teams showed incredible passion today,” Wolfsburg coach Bruno Labbadia told the team’s official website.
“We were wary going into this game given that we’d played in midweek too, but we scored such good goals and were so dominant that – aside from the goals they scored – we didn’t allow Freiburg to create any chances.”
“The result feels strange because I can’t really criticize my team for anything,” he added.
“The only thing I can say is that games like this are exactly why I love football.”
Freiburg’s manager Christian Streich was also happy after the result.
“I can only agree with that. It was a fantastic, hard-fought match,” he commented.
“Going behind three times made things extremely difficult for us and it’s great that we were able to fight back.”
“It was a shame we weren’t able to complete the turnaround, because we could’ve used a moment like that,” the coach continued.
“Still, games like this give us energy and I’d have taken a draw if you’d offered me one on 86 minutes.”
“Bruno and his team deserve huge credit, they’ve got an incredibly strong side and are really well organized. I’ve enjoyed watching VfL all season,” he concluded.
FULL TIME! Crazy game 🤪
