VfL Wolfsburg beats Bayern Munich in the top game

The footballers of VfL Wolfsburg won the hard-fought tryst of the vice European champions and set a first exclamation mark in the fight for the championship. The defending champions won 2-1 (1-0) against runners-up Bayern Munich on the 5th Bundesliga matchday. Thanks to the victory in front of a VfL record crowd of 21,287 spectators, Lower Saxony already have a five-point lead over Bayern in the early stages of the season.

Poland’s Ewa Pajor (41st) and Svenja Huth (58th) scored for the Wolfsburg team, who have an impeccable record of five wins. Bayern, on the other hand, who have been coached by new coach Alexander Straus since this season, have been waiting for a win against VfL for six games now. Klara Bühl’s goal (73rd) didn’t change that either.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team, how they took on the fight,” said VfL captain Huth im NDR: “We didn’t let Bayern develop in the first half. But after conceding, they came back up again.”

Right from the start, the fans saw a dogged game between the two teams that have won the championship between themselves over the past ten years (seven titles for VfL, three for Bayern). The eleven German EM riders who were on the pitch when the whistle kicked off didn’t give anything away either.

After Linda Dallmann had missed the first good opportunity for the guests (4th), the Wolfsburg team around Alexandra Popp developed a clear advantage as the game went on. Even before Pajor’s goal, which made Munich goalkeeper Maria-Luisa Grohs look bad, the Wolfsburg team had good chances.

At the beginning of the second half, Tommy Stroot’s team remained superior. Nevertheless, Lea Schüller was able to equalize in a counterattack (48th). Huth did better with her direct acceptance on the other side.

Fifteen minutes later, Bühl created new tension – and an open exchange of blows in the final phase. In the 82nd minute, Bayern striker Jovana Damnjanovic hit the post with a header, and then the Munich team were close to equalizing several times.
