Trip to Cologne

VfL Women are away at 1. FC Köln in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga.

Die Frauen des VfL Wolfsburg jubeln im Kreis und umarmen sich dabei.

Nuremberg, Rome, Cologne: three cities, three different competitions. VfL Wolfsburg Women conclude their week of away fixtures on Sunday 27 November at 1. FC Köln (kick-off: 13:00 CET). At his pre-match press conference, head coach Tommy Stroot gave his thoughts on…

…team news: “Sara Agrez is unavailable. We’ll make a decision on Lisa Weiß and Lena Oberdorf after our final training session.”

…the opposition: “There’ll be a big crowd and Köln will try to impose themselves on the game. Their current position in the table isn’t a true reflection of the quality they have in their squad. We’ll have to invest a lot again if we’re to take all three points. It’ll be a tough match played in a fantastic atmosphere, which we’re looking forward to.”

…dealing with the physical strain of so many matches: “If you look at Europe you can see just how intensive and challenging this year is. At the moment we’re taking some very conscious decisions so that we can give certain players a weekend off to keep them fresh. Our aim is to maintain control over our own performances and not to suffer a dip.”
