Arnold prepares Bielefeld hopes to an abrupt end
Even before kick-off to Wolfsburg the final feed was apparently sure of VfL already offered by mistake on his website but tickets for the final in Berlin. But the arrogance of Niedersachsen followed not the case: The issue on the Bielefelder Alm was a unique . The wolves were clearly superior to the third division, scored an early goal and made no later than the beginning of the second round all clear. Thus Dieter Hecking drives at the fourth attempt for the first time to the cup final in the capital.
Bielefeld coach Norbert Meier changed his starting lineup after the furious 4 : 0 win in Erfurt on two positions : Instead of Hornig played Salger who had to fit in the league Yellow – locked in the middle , in the Christian Müller was preferred to Ulm , who always sat outside for the time being this season in the Cup .

The favorite role, we assume and adapt everything, but that alone we have not yet won the game ” made clear the VfL coach . The words apparently arrived at his side, because he started very focused and committed .
Arnold opened the scoring
Wolfsburg recorded in the initial phase possession values around 75 percent . Bielefeld was low and sent for the Bundesliga side . The first conclusion of the game , Naldos massive attempt from the second row , was not crowned with success ( 3 ) , but already the second was his goal : after a mistake by Salger sat Caligiuri the penalty area Arnold in scene , the midfielder curled the ball into the top corner ( 8 ) .
The Lower Saxony were safely on the defensive , leaving nothing. After the first fifteen minutes, the Arminia was a bit braver and more often sought the way forward, but all efforts went to the third division from any punch. VfL had little trouble to intercept the attacks . And also in the offensive game had to run not too much effort, the Hecking’s team . Abgezockt he waited for mistakes Meiers protégés did him the favor, repeatedly to afford inattentiveness.
The second Wolfsburg goal resulted from a dead ball , however : After a Rodriguez – kick Luiz Gustavo recovered a header – filing of Dost ( 31 ) . Bielefeld recorded in the final stages of the first section a little more play than before , but Torgefahr went from the Ostwestfalen not – not even from set pieces , while the VfL contributed repeatedly fouls in midfield . So it went with a 0 : 2 in the cabins .
The second period began with a furious kick from Dick : The right-back joined the dead ball from the touchline from 35 meters into the box, Benaglio misjudged – and the ball landed on the crossbar ( 47. ) .

Perisic and Arnold make everything clear
These were but then stopped abruptly. Wolfsburg made short work and pulled through Perisic ( 51 ) and Arnold ( 55) 4 : 0 away . Both hit prepared the outstanding Caligiuri ago . The Bundesliga side had the events go big, not fully under control and had the power limit to control ball and opponent .
Bielefeld’s faith was now broken, Wolfsburg only limited to the bare minimum and shifted into overdrive.
