Wolfsburg testing against St. Etienne

The international friendly of VfL Wolfsburg vs. St. Etienne is definitely another highlight of this year´s IFCS summer training camps.

Styria´s Bad Waltersdorf has hosted VfL Wolfsburg since Friday. For sure the test match against the French traditional club St. Etienne on Wednesday at 7 p.m. is the real highlight of Wolfsburg´s one-week training camp in Styria. In St. Etienne´s green-white team Robert Berić, the former Sturm Graz forward, will return to Styria. It was in August 2015 when the 25-year-old Slovenian left Rapid Vienna to join St. Etienne where he has been very successful as well. In the season 2016/17 Berić has already scored the only goal in the Europa League qualifier against AEK Athens. Thus St. Etienne have reached the play-off games.

Unlike St.Etienne VfL Wolfsburg have not yet started their regular championship matches in Germany´s Bundesliga. For the Wolves with their manager Dieter Hecking the season will start on August 20th with the DFB cup.

Kick-off for this test match highlight in Hartberg´s stadium is at 7 p.m.
