VfL Wolfsburg won their first competitive match of the 2022/23 season, beating Carl Zeiss Jena 1-0 in the first round of the DFB Cup on Saturday evening. Omar Marmoush netted the winning goal for Niko Kovac’s side in the 92nd minute in front of a crowd of 6,100 at the sold-out Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld.

The second round will be played over 18 and 19 October.

The Wolves are next in action this Saturday, 6 August (kick-off 15:30 CEST), as they welcome Werder Bremen to the Volkswagen Arena on the opening matchday of the new Bundesliga season.

Niko Kovac: “First of all I want to congratulate the opposition on a great game. Jena did very well over the 90 minutes and really gave everything. But we got through, and on the basis of chances then I think it’s deserved too. Obviously, when you score in stoppage time there’s an element of luck, but every first-round cup tie is difficult. You never know exactly where you’re at. If you look at the other games, we can see that a few others are already out. We’re still in it, though, and that’s all that matters.”

0-1 Marmoush (90’+2): Nerves of steel: from a free-kick from the left, in one of the last actions of the game, Marmoush hurls himself in the air and steers a header into the far corner, much to the dismay of the home side. Late in the day, but fully deserved!
