The VfL Wolfsburg women's team dropped points for the first time this season in a 1-1 draw away to 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam as the domestic season reached its halfway point. Ewa Pajor put VfL in front in the 64th minute at the Karl-Liebknecht-Stadion with a superb individual goal, only for Viktoria Schwalm to net the equaliser late on. The Green-Whites had the better chances in a hard-fought game but were unable to capitalise on their numerous openings against a tough home defence.
The second half of the season gets under way for the VfL Ladies on Sunday 11 December with a trip to 1. FFC Frankfurt (kick-off 11:00 CET).
"A very intensive, fast-paced match"
VfL head coach Stephan Lerch: "You have to give credit to both teams. It was a very intensive, fast-paced match. The pitch wasn't easy to play on but both teams coped with it well. Obviously we're very disappointed so soon after the final whistle because we dropped two points here. The only criticism I can level at my team is our chance conversion, which cost us the victory today. You don't usually get so many clear-cut opportunities at Potsdam, so obviously we're not entirely happy with the draw."
