First defeat

VfL Women were beaten 2-1 at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

VfL Wolfsburg Women signed off for the next international break with their first defeat of the season, losing 2-1 away to Hoffenheim in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga. It’s also the first time that the Green-and-Whites have ever dropped points against TSG following 16 consecutive wins.

It also marks the end of October in terms of competitive football for Tommy Stroot’s side, who are not in action again until Monday 1 November, when they travel to SC Freiburg in the DFB Cup round of 16 (kick-off 18:30 CET). Their next league match follows four day later, with Eintracht Frankfurt visiting the AOK Stadion on Friday 5 November (kick-off 19:15 CET).


Tommy Stroot: “Congratulations to Hoffenheim on the three points, which will be very valuable to them after a busy few weeks. We saw a very good game of football today between two teams who want to and can play football. In that respect, I’m a bit disappointed that this meeting between two Champions League participants wasn’t available to watch on free TV. As for the match, we had frequent periods in which we were on top, especially in the second half, but couldn’t capitalise. Hoffenheim then got the necessary bit of luck that they needed to win the match. That’s not always been the case in recent weeks.”
