BERLIN (AP) -Wolfsburg secured its first Bundesliga win at home this season with a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.

Brazilian playmaker Diego opened the scoring in the fourth minute with a free kick from a central position, and he made it 2-0 in the 16th, when Bas Dost teed the ball up for the Brazilian to shoot inside the post.

The home side kept pouring forward and Marcel Schaefer crossed to give Dost an easy finish in the 33rd.

Stefan Kiessling rounded Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio for Leverkusen's consolation in injury time.

Wolfsburg's interim coach Lorenz-Guenther Koestner has overseen three wins from four games in all competitions since the club parted ways with Felix Magath.

Later, Stuttgart hosted Hannover, and Borussia Moenchengladbach visited Greuther Fuerth.
