VfL Wolfsburg Women recorded their third win in as many games after beating promoted side SV Meppen 2-1 in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga on Sunday thanks to goals from Svenja Huth and Dominique Janssen.
The She-Wolves justified their role as favourites throughout the encounter in front of a crowd of 550 fans at the AOK Stadion – the team’s first game following the two-week international break – but were unable to add further gloss to the scoreline.
The Green-and-Whites are next in action on Sunday 4 October (kick-off 14:00 CEST) when they travel to Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
“We needed to be patient”
VfL head coach Stephan Lerch: “There were a lot of happy faces after the game. That was because we did what we set out to do here at home – win the game. We had good opportunities in the first half but kept the pressure up in the second. Our second goal was a big relief, but it was also a long time coming. Meppen made things very difficult for us. It was a matter of patience, but the team handled it very well.”
