After 10 minutes in the second half PSV came in front. Captain Luuk de Jong passed through to Locadia and the PSV forward netted with his left foot.

With Julian Draxler, Vieirinha and Nicklas Bendtner coming on as substitutes for Josuha Guilavogui, Andre Schurrle and Dost the visitors pushed forward for the equalizer.

Zoet saved a shot by Naldo, but on the counter attack PSV scored. After a pass by Andres Guardado De Jong beat Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio with a lob.
