Wout Weghorst has shot VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday to a 1-0 win over Union Berlin and second place in the Bundesliga. Borussia Mönchengladbach is the surprising new leader with a big win over FC Augsburg (5-1).
Weghorst, who was again not selected for the Dutch national team this week, scored the only goal of the game at Wolfsburg-Union Berlin in the 69th minute.
The Dutch striker was sent away with a subtle cross pass by Josip Brekalo, who just came in and did not fail face to face with keeper Rafal Gikiewicz. It was his fourth goal in seven league games for Weghorst.
Wolfsburg, still unbeaten, climbs to second place with 15 points, one point ahead of Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, SC Freiburg, Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen.

Borussia Mönchengladbach surprisingly ahead
Borussia Mönchengladbach is surprisingly the leader in the Bundesliga with sixteen points. The team of coach Marco Rose jumped over Bayern Munich through the 5-1 win over FC Augsburg. The Dutch champion surprisingly lost to Hoffenheim on Saturday (1-2).
Gladbach was 3-0 a day later against Augsburg within fifteen minutes, thanks to a goal by Denis Zakaria and two by Patrick Hermann. Shortly before half-time Alassane Pléa also made it 4-0.
After the break the home team took some gas back and Florian Niederlechner managed to save the honor on behalf of Augsburg. The final agreement was for Gladbach, who restored the margin of four via Breel Embolo.
