VIDEO: Gent 2 – 3 Wolfsburg [Champions League] Highlights 2015/16
Julian Draxler’s double had put Wolfsburg in a commanding position in their Champions League last-16 clash, but the Germans lost concentration late on to allow Gent back in a narrow 3-2 victory away from home.
An even first half was thrown open when Draxler struck just before the break to open the scoring.
And the playmaker seized on Gent’s absent-minded defence to hit a delightful finish 10 minutes into the second half before Max Kruse extended the advantage to put the visitors 3-0 up.
Sven Kums and Kalifa Coulibaby swooped to give the Belgians a lifeline in the final minutes, but they will face an uphill task to change their fortunes in the return match after going down in front of their own fans.
