The fact that the stadium construction site in Jena wasn’t something ideal for the championship bash didn’t bother the Wolfsburg team and their entourage at all. Minutes before the final whistle, the substitute players were dancing on the sidelines in pre-produced championship jerseys, and there were loud chants like “This is what the winners look like” and “Defend the Wolves Women” from the others. Ernst Abbey Sports Stadium.
At the final whistle, there was no turning back, everyone in the middle circle hugged and carried a cardboard bowl that they had brought with them. The real cup comes after the match at home against Bayer Leverkusen next Sunday (2 pm). The trip back to Wolfsburg should be hydrated and happy. As revealed by Magentasport injured Pia-Sophie Wolter, “one or another cold drink” was on the bus.
A strong football season despite all the adversity
VfL’s entourage can then celebrate an almost perfect season. Head coach Tommy Strutt, who came to Aller from Enschede only last summer, has suffered one defeat and impressively defied all adversities – staff changes with nine departures, injuries to top performers such as Ewa Bajor, Alexandra Pope and Almuth Schulte.
Recently, he has racked up eleven consecutive wins, including a 6-0 win over current champions Bayern Munich. On May 28 there is a chance to double – in the DFB Cup final against Turbine Potsdam. The only bitter drop is the semi-finals of the Champions League, where the “Wolves” withdrew from the case respectably after the 1: 5 defeat at the Barcelona Grande Stadium in the second leg (2: 0).
In the first half everything was already clear
The match in Jena began with a shocking moment for women in the Premier League: Bob had to be treated for a long time for a head injury, but then continued to play with a bandage. Then, events on the field took an expected one-sided course. In front of Jena, which they completely beat, the league leaders advanced 2-0 after a few minutes with two goals from Bajur (8) and Svendis Jonsdottir (10).
After that, too, the only goal was for the owners of the land, who conceded the third goal in the best slapstick manner through an own goal from Tina Kremlichka (18). Finally after Felicitas Rauch took a 4-0 lead (25th place), the last skeptics had to be persuaded to win the Wolfsburg women’s team. Lina Latwin scored 5-0 before the end of the first half (38).
VfL women do not calm down
cute after reboot? Not with VfL. 53 seconds played when the ball was in Jena’s net again: Gilles Rurd scored from 20 meters to make it 6-0. Bob increased the difference to 7-0 shortly thereafter (57). Only then did the guests take it easy and let Julia Arnold score a consolation goal (79). But this was only a small and short act of mercy, Tabia Wassmouth (81), Pauline Bremer (83) and Svenga Huth (85) finally turned it into double digits and scored the highest Premier League win of the season with their goals.
