VfL Women face league rivals MSV Duisburg in the DFB Cup last 16.
VfL Wolfsburg Women, who beat Duisburg 5-2 in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga in October, welcome MSV to the AOK Stadion on Sunday 6 December (kick-off 14:00 CET/live on Wölfe TV). At Thursday’s pre-match press conference, head coach Stephan Lerch answered the media’s questions on…
…personnel: “All the international players have returned with their health intact. Shanice van de Sanden and Fridolina Rolfö have picked up slight muscular problems, so we’ll have to wait and see [how they recover] over the next few days, but I’m confident they’ll be available for Sunday. Sara Doorsoun is also back in contention. There’s no news regarding our long-term absentees.”
…the target against Duisburg: “We definitely want to reach the next round. I’m expecting us to create numerous goalscoring opportunities which will hopefully lead to some goals, but if we only end up scoring one and winning 1-0 I’ll be happy.”
