Bundesliga side Wolfsburg gave themselves a real chance at making it past Inter Milan next week as Kevin de Bruyne showed exactly why he is so highly-rated right now.

The Italians took an early lead, though, with Rodrigo Palacio capitalising on some lax defending from the Wolfsburg back line.
However, Inter could only hold on to their lead for a short while as an unmarked Naldo powered a header from Kevin de Bruyne’s corner into the back of the net. It was undoubtedly a well taken goal, but should the ‘keeper done better?
Deep into the second half and that man de Bruyne was the star of the show once again, as he picked up on a poorly placed pass from the Inter goalkeeper to slide the ball into the net to give his side the lead.
And de Bruyne capped off an excellent evening for himself and a terrible evening for Juan Pablo Carrizo by striking this superbly struck free kick to guarantee an early advantage.
