Wolfsburg Stuns Madrid

On April 6 2016, Wolfsburg, a German soccer team, stunned the world by beating Real Madrid 2-0. Soccer fans all over the world were stunned to see this result as they saw Real Madrid as the clear favourites.

Wolfsburg went into the game with something to prove because five days before their meet with Madrid, they had lost to Bayern Leverkusen 3-0. Madrid on the other hand, had lots of confidence after triumphing against their bitter rivals Barcelona 2-1. Wolfsburg players were shocked by the result they obtained against Real Madrid after goals came from Maximilian Arnold and Ricardo Rodriguez in the first 25 minutes.

In an interview with BT Sport, Wolfsburg’s Julian Draxler hailed his team’s incredible win: “ We really enjoyed every minute of the game. It was really good for us. We know that we can play football, but we are not on Real Madrid’s level. I am really proud of the team and I hope that we can manage the same game next week in Madrid,” said Draxler.

Wolfsburg may find it hard to win against Madrid as they have always been hard to beat on home soil. After their win, Wolfsburg will be confident that they can beat them as they play with less pressure than Madrid to advance to the next round. Real Madrid needs their high profile players to show up in order to win.

“ Real Madrid need to go into the next game with the mentality of scoring goals. They have to improve in all the areas in order to win against Wolfsburg and they have to put their best players in the game. Cristiano Ronaldo needs to show the world why he is one of the best players of his generation and goals against Wolfsburg will only help his case,” said junior Roberto Ocampo.

Real Madrid will have to put in a lot of work this week if they want to beat Wolfsburg. They have to start this weekend in their game against Eibar and use that game as a turning point in their season. Wolfsburg, however, will have to work hard in order to stop a Real Madrid team that does not like losing.
