Bundesliga: Yannick Gerhardt seals Wolfsburg win at Augsburg


Yannick Gerhardt scored a late winner to give Wolfsburg a 3-2 sbo222 victory at Augsburg in their final Bundesliga match before the winter break. The visitors went ahead against the run of play at the WWK Arena in the 33rd minute. John Brooks flicked the ball on from a corner, with captain Josuha Guilavogui scoring his second goal in as many games from close range. It was 2-0 to Wolfsburg shortly before half-time when full-back William dispatched a shot from the edge of the penalty area into the bottom corner.

Rani Khedira reduced the deficit early in the second half before Augsburg hauled themselves level on the hour when substitute Sergio Cordova headed in Jonathan Schmid's cross. But Wolfsburg wrapped up all three points sbo222 with just a minute left as Gerhardt turned home the winner following a break down the right by Renato Steffen. The dramatic victory leaves Wolfsburg in fifth place, one point ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt and within three of RB Leipzig.

Sunday's late match saw Hoffenheim and Mainz draw 1-1, with both goals coming in the space of four minutes early in the first half. sbo222 Kerem Demirbay put the home side in front in the 11th minute, but Jean-Philippe Mateta soon equalised after a free-kick was not cleared. While Hoffenheim extended their unbeaten Bundesliga run to 10 matches, a sixth successive league draw saw Julian Nagelsmann's side lose further ground on the European qualifying places.

Cherries skipper Simon Francis faces up to nine months out with knee ligament rupture


Boss Eddie Howe's worst fears were confirmed sbo168 by the results of a scan, which revealed the 33-year-old had sustained the same injury as team-mate Lewis Cook had during the win over Huddersfield at the beginning of this month. Defender Francis is the third Cherries player to suffer a major knee problem this season, with Cook and Adam Smith both going under the knife in the past six weeks.

Francis was forced off during the first half of yesterday’s 5-0 Premier League defeat to Spurs, having fallen awkwardly on the Wembley Stadium turf while tracking forward Son Heung-min.Howe is now without a recognised right-back in one of the busiest periods of the campaign.The boss told the club website: “We are devastated to have lost Simon to a serious knee injury.

“It is a huge blow to lose our captain and someone who has performed so well for the team over a long period of time.“There is a long road ahead but Simon is a model professional who has a positive mindset and is surrounded by good people. sbo168 I know he will leave no stone unturned in order to get back as soon as possible.

“He will receive the best possible medical care as well as the love and sbo168 support of everyone at the club.”Cherries suffered three serious knee injuries during their first season in the top flight.Callum Wilson, Tyrone Mings and Max Gradel endured lengthy spells on the sidelines, while Wilson sustained a second rupture in February last year.
