Lead extended

VfL Women increased their lead at the top of the table thanks to a 3-2 win in Bremen

Die Frauen des VfL Wolfsburg jubeln gemeinsam und umarmen sich dabei.

VfL Wolfsburg Women not only maintained their perfect start to the season but increased their lead at the top of the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga table to four points after a 3-2 triumph away to SV Werder Bremen. Rebecka Blomqvist struck twice for the She-Wolves, with Alexandra Popp also on target, while Rieke Dieckmann and Christin Meyer replied for Bremen. Second-placed Eintracht Frankfurt were held to a 3-3 draw in Hoffenheim but remain one point ahead of Bayern Munich in third. After a busy fortnight with fixtures in midweek and at the weekends, the Green-and-Whites now have a little more time to prepare for their final game before the international break: Tommy Stroot’s side are next in action on Sunday 6 November (kick-off: 13:00 CET/live on Magenta Sport) against MSV Duisburg at the AOK Stadion.


0-1 Blomqvist (11th minute): Lynn Wilms plays a well-timed ball forward to Blomqvist, who controls it nicely and finishes with aplomb.

0-2 Popp (25th minute): Svenja Huth takes a short corner to Felicitas Rauch, whose cross is inch-perfect for Popp to head home.

1-2 Dieckmann (31st minute): Michaela Brandenburg crosses from the right into the middle, where Dieckmann scores on the turn.

1-3 Blomqvist (48th minute): Huth delivers a ball into the middle from the right and finds Blomqvist, whose header makes it 3-1.

2-3 Meyer (72nd minute): A cross falls kindly at the feet of Meyer, who fires in at the bottom-left corner.


Tommy Stroot: “I’m not pleased with our performance today. We had moments during the match in which we were in control and could have finished the game off. That frustrates me and I know the girls feel the same. We didn’t put the game to bed in the decisive phases and then we had to endure a nervy spell. At the end of the day, I’m just happy that we won.”
