Goals from Maximilian Arnold, Ivica Olic and Willi Evseev help Wolfsburg to a comfortable 3-0 win at Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

Wolfsburg have remained within touching distance in their pursuit of Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga after cruising to a 3-0 victory over Freiburg this afternoon.

Dieter Hecking's men, who remain five points off Monchengladbach in fourth place in Germany's top flight, took the lead after just eight minutes.

Maximilian Arnold was on hand to poke home the opening goal following a pin-point cross from Patrick Ochs.

Refusing to rest on their laurels, the visitors went in search of a cushion and doubled their advantage just three minutes later.

Arnold played a pivotal role in the second goal, releasing Luiz Gustavo whose cut-back found Ivica Olic in the six-yard box and the former Bayern Munich hitman could not miss.

Marcel Schafer made sure of the points in the dying stages, smashing home into an empty net after good work from Willi Evseev, to ensure that Hecking's charges remain in the hunt for a Champions League berth.
