Die Spielerinnen des VfL Wolfsburg umarmen sich und bejubln ihren Treffer.

VfL Wolfsburg Women kicked off a busy period with a victory on Saturday as the double winners beat 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam 2-0 to maintain their lead at the top of the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga table.

In a repeat of last season’s DFB Cup final, Alexandra Popp and Ewa Pajor scored the goals for the She-Wolves, whose attention now turns to the start of their European campaign. VfL host Austrian champions SKN St. Pölten at the AOK Stadion on Thursday 20 October (kick-off 18:45 CEST) in their opening UEFA Women’s Champions League group match.


  • 0-1 Popp (20th minute): Tabea Waßmuth’s cross finds Popp, who goes for the top right corner and leaves Potsdam goalkeeper Jil Frehse with no chance.
  • 0-2 Pajor (90th minute + 4): Blomqvist relieves the pressure with a clearance which lands at the feet of Pajor, who races into the penalty area before going around Frehse and slotting in the second goal.


Tommy Stroot: “It was an exciting game for the spectators, also because it was pretty close for a long time. We were partly responsible for that tension. We could’ve scored six goals in the first half alone. In the second, we had a lot of moments in transition but couldn’t kill the game off. I was glad when the final whistle went and that we’re coming home with three points.”
