To say VfL Wolfsburg Women are difficult to beat would be an understatement. In front of 14,027 spectators at the Volkswagen Arena, the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga leaders cruised to a 5-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, who had occupied second place in the table going into Saturday. Bayern Munich have leapfrogged Eintracht into second but still remain five points behind the Green-and-Whites.

3-0 Pajor (44’): Two goals in three minutes for the She-Wolves. Pajor is left unmarked at a corner and heads home from a central position. The ball takes a wicked deflection off Verena Hanshaw on its way in.

5-0 Doorsoun (OG, 86’): Jule Brand sets off down the right, spots Roord in a good position and sends a cross into the area. Doorsoun beats Roord to the ball but only manages to steer
