Frustrating defeat for She-Wolves

VfL were beaten 2-1 by FC Bayern Munich despite an improved second-half performance.

Despite an improved display in the second half, VfL Wolfsburg Women lost 2-1 at FC Bayern Munich in Sunday’s top-of-the-table encounter. In front of approximately 4,300 fans at the FC Bayern Campus, the She-Wolves struggled in the first 45 minutes as the home side took control of proceedings. Tommy Stroot’s side played with much more conviction in the second half and pulled a goal back through Lena Oberdorf in the 63rd minute, but the visitors were unable to salvage a draw.


  • 1-0 Dallmann (29’): The She-Wolves lose possession and Georgia Stanway releases Klara Bühl down the left-hand side. Bühl’s cross into the middle finds Linda Dallmann, who prods home from close range.
  • 2-0 Bühl (37’): Dallmann turns provider for Bühl, whose first-time strike into the bottom left corner leaves Lisa Schmitz with no chance.
  • 2-1 Oberdorf (63’): After creating little thus far, Wolfsburg manage to carve out an opening through Oberdorf, who is given space and time to set up a shot. She lets fly from around 23 metres and finds the right-hand corner to reduce the arrears.


Tommy Stroot: “On the whole it was a deserved win for Bayern. For large parts of the game we were unable to reach our full potential on the pitch. We were more solid in the second half but against top-class opposition, playing well for one half is not enough.”
