Maxence Lacroix (6.9/10) : Maxence made some valuable clearences for Wolfsburg and helped the defence on multiple occasions. He did lose possession on many occasions but he made up for it in other ways.

Josuha Guilavogui (7.1/10) : Joshua was undoubtedly one of the best defenders for Wolfsburg. He made as many as eleven clearences and was really good with tackles, interceptions and ground duels.

John Brooks (6.9/10) : John Brooks did an exceptional job with making clearences as well as was very quick with his feet in defence to win several tackles and interceptions.

Ridle Baku (7.5/10) : Ridle Baku was one of the most prolific players in the game. He scored the opening goal of the match for Wolfsburg in the 3rd minute and brought them in the lead.
