  • Gent score twice in last ten minutes to revive hopes against Wolfsburg
  • Julian Draxler nets either side of half-time to put visitors in charge (44, 54)
  • Max Kruse volleys in third to seemingly end contest (60)
  • Sven Kums pulls one back (80) and Kalifa Coulibaly heads late second (89)
  • Second leg to be played at VfL Wolfsburg Arena on 8 March

Goals in the last ten minutes from Sven Kums and Kalifa Coulibaly gave Gent hope of salvaging their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie with Wolfsburg, who had threatened to run away with the first leg thanks to Julian Draxler's fine double and a Max Kruse volley.
