Weghorst scores again, Wolfsburg unbeaten in Bundesliga

DÜSSELDORF, Germany — Wout Weghorst scored again for Wolfsburg to preserve its unbeaten start to the Bundesliga season with a 1-1 draw at Fortuna Düsseldorf on Friday.

The Dutch striker claimed his third goal in four league games in the 28th minute, shooting the ball through United States goalkeeper Zack Steffen's legs after Josip Brekalo had played the ball through Robin Bormuth's legs to set him up.

Düsseldorf is a favored opponent for Weghorst, who scored four goals and set up three more across their league meetings last season.

Niko Gießelmann gave Düsseldorf an early lead in the 16th minute, though video replays showed the ball out of play by the sideline in the lead up to the goal. The goal stood despite it being checked by the video assistant referee.

"If the ball had been ruled out of play, we couldn't have complained," Düsseldorf coach Friedhelm Funkel conceded.

Düsseldorf ended a run of two defeats, while Wolfsburg stretched its unbeaten run to nine games including last season.
