In a fiercely contested match in the German Bundesliga on Friday night, 10-man Wolfsburg managed to secure a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Augsburg, but Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen’s goal drought persisted. Osimhen, introduced in the 80th minute, faced his 12th league appearance this season without finding the back of the net.
The encounter saw a red card for both sides, with Felix Uduokhai of Wolfsburg receiving his marching orders in the 86th minute, while Jan Moravek had earlier been sent off for Augsburg in the 54th minute. Despite the numerical disadvantage, Wolfsburg extended their unbeaten streak to three league games, comprising one victory and two draws.
The draw places Wolfsburg in the 14th position on the Bundesliga table with 30 points, maintaining a three-point buffer above the relegation play-off spot in the 18-team league.
Meanwhile, in the Dutch second-tier, the struggles continued for Nigerian midfielder Kelechi Nwakali, on loan from Arsenal, as MVV Maastricht suffered a setback, losing 3-1 away to Jong AZ Alkmaar. Nwakali featured for the full 90 minutes in his 14th league appearance for Maastricht this season, managing to score three goals so far.
The defeat ended Maastricht’s consecutive league victories, leaving them in the ninth position on the league table with 49 points. As Osimhen and Nwakali face challenges on the pitch, their performances continue to be closely monitored by fans and football enthusiasts alike.
