Wolves roar back at Hertha

VfL Wolfsburg underlined their credentials for a place in Europe next season with a 2-1 win at Hertha Berlin on Sunday to move up to fifth in the Bundesliga.

Hertha, who could have replaced Wolves in the top six with a home win at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, drop to eighth despite taking the lead through a first-half strike from Norway’s Per Skjelbred.

But Wolves roared back with a second-half header from defender Robin Knoche, then midfielder Daniel Caligiuri came off the bench to claim the 78th-minute winner.

Earlier, Nuremberg stayed clear of the bottom three with a 1-0 win at Augsburg in the Bavaria derby.AFP
