Wolfsburg were held to their third straight 1-1 draw in the Bundesliga as Hoffenheim earned a deserved point on Monday night.

Sebastian Rudy put visitors Hoffenheim in front after only six minutes, but unbeaten Wolfsburg levelled through Admir Mehmedi’s powerful left-footed finish, which flew past goalkeeper Oliver Baumann at his near post, in the 36th minute.

Josip Brekalo thought he had put the hosts in front moments later after winning possession from the Hoffenheim defence and racing through to find the net, but his celebrations were cut short as he was penalised for a handball.

At the other end Robert Skov was left with hands on head as his long-range strike crashed down off the underside of the bar and bounced on the line before coming out.

Hoffenheim had the better chances in the second half, but were unable to find a way past Pavao Pervan as both sides had to settle for a point.

Having won their opening two games of the season, the Wolves have now drawn their last three, while Hoffenheim still have just one win from their opening five matches.
