Bochum 2 – Wolfsburg 2 (Bundesliga, August 24, 2008) Bochum took the lead against Wolfsburg midway through the half, Sestak slipped the ball under the keeper to give the hosts the advantage. Dabrowski pulled Bochum further ahead with a back post header (despite looking suspiciously offside). But Wolfsburg capitalised on some shocking defending to pull a goal back through Costa. And the home side only had themselves to blame for Wolfsburg equalising, a poor clearance was picked up, ending in Sagluk guiding the ball home.
