Wolfsburg make Bundesliga history as Van Bommel’s men top table Aug 30, 2021
Wolfsburg made Bundesliga history on Sunday after Mark van Bommel’s table-topping side preserved their perfect start to the season with a 1-0 win over RB Leipzig.
Jerome Roussillon scored the only goal of the match as leaders Wolfsburg made it three victories from three games – the only team with a 100 per cent record heading into the international break.
Wolfsburg have collected nine points from their opening three games of a Bundesliga campaign for the first time.
They also ended the day top of the table for the first time since winning the title in 2008-09 (minimum three games played).
“It is always nice to win,” former PSV head coach Van Bommel, who was appointed ahead of the campaign, told reporters. “Especially, to do so three games in a row.
“We are the only team in the Bundesliga that has done that at the moment. Anyone can beat anyone. The quality is just very high. Leipzig could have taken a draw or even won. It was very close. Therefore, it was a top game, a proper top game which is decided by details.
“Today we had the advantage. But in two weeks we will travel to Furth and then we start from the beginning again. Bayern [Munich] will do so as well, but not only Bayern. Everyone is behind us. The situation can quickly change.
“We have to be realistic. It is nice to have nine points, it means we are working well. But it is not guaranteed that it will continue this way and no guarantee that we will win every game.”
