Wolfsburg eased past BSC in a 2-1 victory on Saturday at the Olympiastadion. Hertha were looking to get back their winning ways, following a previous defeat to FC Köln. Wolfsburg, on the other hand, were able to continue their winning streak after a 1-0 win against Bochum in their last match. As the table looks today, Hertha and Wolfsburg currently occupy 18th and 7th spots in the league, with 0 points and 3 points respectively after 2 matches.

Following a goalless first half, Hertha took the initiative in the second half, thanks to Dodi Lukebakio finding the net, 60 minutes in. However, they were unable to maintain their lead, Ridle Baku managed to equalize and take the sides off in the 74th minute at 1-1. Wolfsburg then netted once more and turned the match thanks to a goal from Lukas Nmecha just before the final whistle with a final score of 2-1.

For Hertha, Stevan Jovetic, Marco Richter, Lucas Tousart, Deyovaisio Zeefuik and Jordan Torunarigha, came on for Kevin-Prince Boateng, Javairo Dilrosun, Davie Selke, Suat Serdar and Dedryck Boyata. Wolfsburg brought on Josip Brekalo, Lukas Nmecha, Yannick Gerhardt and Josuha Guilavogui for Renato Steffen, Maximilian Philipp, Jerome Roussillon and Xaver Schlager.
