Wolfsburg snaps Bayer's unbeaten streak

Press Association

Bayer Leverkusen missed the chance to move into the Champions League qualification zone in the Bundesliga following a shocking 3-1 defeat at lowly Wolfsburg.

Brazilian playmaker Diego set the Wolves on their way with two inspirational goals in the first 16 minutes before Bas Dost settled matters just after the hour.

A tired-looking Leverkusen improved in the second half, grabbing a late consolation through Stefan Kiessling, but it lost for the first time in nearly two months.

Wolfsburg picked up its first home win of the season but remained in the relegation zone.

Nine-man Greuther Furth was made to pay for its poor discipline as it lost 4-2 at home to Borussia Monchengladbach.

The second-from-bottom hosts led through Bernd Nehrig's 10th-minute penalty but Thomas Kleine saw red just moments later.

While Oscar Wendt equalized on 22 minutes, Greuther actually went into halftime ahead thanks to Edgar Prib in the 43rd minute.

Monchengladbach roared ahead shortly after the break through Martin Stranzl (51st minute) and Patrick Hermann (57th minute) and when Milorad Pekovic also saw red in stoppage time, Thorben Marx completed the scoring from the penalty spot.

Hannover were also 4-2 winners as the side came back from a 2-0 halftime deficit against Stuttgart.

Christian Gentner's strike and a Vedad Ibisevic penalty seemingly had Stuttgart in full control but Mirko Slomka's men turned things around in the second 45 minutes.

Artur Sobiech (56th minute) brought the team back into the game before Jan Schlaudraff equalized from the spot on 64 minutes.

Two goals in five minutes from Mohammed Abdellaoue, one coming from the penalty spot, then sealed the win for the Reds over their Europa League rivals.
