Die Spielerinnen des VfL Wolfsburg freuen sich und klatschen sich ab.

VfL Wolfsburg Women had to settle for a draw in their third and final friendly of the winter break. A week ahead of the She-Wolves’ match against 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam on 5 February (kick-off 19:15 CET, live on Eurosport and Magenta Sport), the Green-and-Whites drew 2-2 away to FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga rivals SGS Essen. VfL, currently second in the league standings, won both of their previous friendlies against Eintracht Frankfurt by 3-2 and 3-0 scorelines.

Rebecka Blomqvist and Pia-Sophie Wolter got the goals for Stephan Lerch’s side at the Sportpark am Hallo – with the main stadium on Hafenstraße unavailable for use – while Jana Feldkamp and Antonia Baaß were on target for Essen. Just a month ago, VfL won 2-0 at Essen in the league.

“Learned some valuable lessons”

VfL head coach Stephan Lerch: “We went 2-0 up but ended up drawing 2-2, so we can’t say that everything’s ok. We played well in the first half and deserved to go in front. We invited Essen into the game in the second half through some individual mistakes. We can’t be completely satisfied today, but we learned some valuable lessons. It’s clear that a result like this in the league could cost us our chance in the title race.”
