VfL dominating and with deserved leadership

four days later Victory 2-0 at home in the Champions League in front of more than 22,000 spectators against FC Barcelona, ​​​​the “wolves” were not disturbed by the barely full ranks on the Hafenstrasse in Essen. They clearly dominated the meeting, but needed a controversial penalty to take the advantage, Dominique Janssen transformed without incident (16th).

After that the match went as planned, after goals from Ewa Pajor (28th) and Tabea Waßmuth (33rd) it was already 3:0 for the favorites. The hosts were largely harmless in attack and only had two chances to score: VfL keeper Almuth Schult was on the spot against Carlotta Wamser (30th), but she was helpless against Vivien Endemann’s right-footed shot – only 3: 1. (36th).

Janssen composes the double pack

After the restart, the guests took it a bit more gently without emitting less goal danger. SGS goalkeeper Sindermann parried twice against Waßmuth (55th) and Lena Lattwein (65th), but then had to give up for the fourth time: Janssen finally took the Wolfsburg women out of the field with a header on the road to victory (66th).

The Essen women bravely held back and also had chances thanks to Wamser (74th) and Elisa Senß (77th) – but Schult was on the post. Towards the end, the strength of SGS decreased, the “wolves” regularly left the ball, and the opponents ran – Sandra Starke practically scored the 5: 1 (90 + 2) at the final whistle. Wolfsburg’s ninth consecutive league victory was also fully deserved in terms of size.
